I found that the best remedy is a combinations of various things. I do 3 methods: oil pulling, hydrogen dioxide swishing and baking soda brushing. Oil pulling will tighten/brighten your teeth and remove toxic from your blood stream. Hydrogen dioxide kill bacteria that prevents receding gum from regenerating and stop gum bleeding. Baking soda brushing is just for good measure 'cause it doesn't hurt. For oil pulling, make sure that you use untoasted sesame/coconut oil. Put about one table spoon in your mouth every morning before eating or drinking and swirl it around gently for 20 mins before spitting it out. Wash your mouth with some salt water. Then, you mix a cap full of 3% hydrogen dioxide with water and keep it in your mouth for 10 mins -- try to keep your head slightly down so the solution is around your teeth instead of your throat. Lastly, wet your tooth brush and dip it in baking soda power and start brushing. Then rinse your teeth with salt water again. Your mouth will feel 99% clean, no more bad breath and within a few weeks, your teeth will be Hollywood white. At least, that's what happened to my sister. I'm a tetracycline victim so my teeth don't get the same effect but it does get lightened up just after a week.
Mix Baking Soda and any toothpaste until it has a gritty or lumpy texture.(I mixed a little bit of it in a plastic bag so there wouldn't be a mess.)Use it to brush your teeth regularly. It cleans your mouth extra well and whitens teeth/brightens your smile. Brush for as long as you can stand the taste, and rinse toothbrush well. It has a bad taste, but great results! Because of the taste, you may want to brush with regular toothpaste afterwards. Good luck, and keep smiling!
i smoke and drink a lot of coffee so my teeth were pretty stained so i used a magic eraser. i just tear off a corner and use that works great everytime. i do this often, about once a month, and when i went to the dentist i asked her if she thought my teeth looked dammaged and she said they looked great so i dont think it will hurt to keep using it. give it a try.
Use the sap from a aloe vera plant to brush teeth, for whiter teeth.
So I tried a bunch of the remedies, seemed the olive oil rub followed by a diluted apple cider rinse worked best. As for the strawberry debate (do or do not rub strawberries on your teeth) wouldn't it be totally safe to just eat some strawberries? I assumethat when you chew them, you use your teeth and some rubbing action may just naturally occur.
Use a eyemakeup remover pad and put extra virgin olive oil on it.
Then rub on all your visible teeth for 5-10 minutes, depending on how much of a difference you want to make to your teeth. Then brush your teeth with regular toothpaste.
The first time i did this i personally wanted whiter results after the first time so did it twice more straight after.
The secret to this inexpensive home whitening method is malic acid, which acts as an astringent to remove surface discoloration. Combined with baking soda, strawberries become a natural tooth-cleanser, buffing away stains from wine, coffee, and dark sodas. While it’s no replacement for a bleaching treatment at your dentist’s office, “this is a fast, cheap way to brighten your smile,” says Adina Carrel, DMD, a dentist in private practice at Manhattan Dental Arts in New York. “Be careful not to use this too often, though, as the acid could damage the enamel on your teeth.”
Make Over Your Smile
1 ripe strawberry
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Directions: Crush the strawberry to a pulp, then mix with the baking soda until blended. Use a soft toothbrush to spread the mixture onto your teeth. Leave on for 5 minutes, then brush thoroughly with toothpaste to remove the berry–baking soda mix. Rinse. (A little floss will help get rid of any strawberry seeds.) You can apply once a week.
combine three spoons of baking soda and glycerin,put a little salt.Then mix until a paste is formed.Brush with it after each meal and re-brush with your usual toothpaste.In just a week, you will notice that your teeth are whiter than before.I have being doing it for one month.it works! coz i am now called “pure”because of my pure-white set of teeth.
You can't go wrong with pure baking soda. I'd brush lightly like usual with it, approx every other day. Because if you use it too much, you can ruin your enamel and cause too much friction on your gums. I've also used half baking soda, half toothpaste of choice in a same brushing and gotten similar results... u just add some mintyness so it's not as bad. I've heard some people can't handle brushing with baking soda because of the 'taste,' but really, you'll get over it. It's not like it tastes like vomit or something, it's just simply not going to give you a minty lather.
Also, brush within 30 min after drinking coffee, tea, or sodas. Drink lots of water. And eating raw, fresh fruits and veggies also contributes in cleansing the teeth when you chew them.
at least once a week brush your teeth with a little bit of charcoal powder, and keep on brushing and rinsing until all the black is gone, and for the rest of the week just brush with water.
this is something a natural doctor has told me, and it really works.
