White teeth are a good sign that you have good health and also good hygiene. Sometimes our teeth are not as white as we would like them to be and there are various ways to get a whiter, brighter smile. Although professional whitening services is the most effective option, there are other things you can try at home to achieve their whitening goals. To do so, simply follow these simple steps by using various home-remedies. Try going on a white-teeth diet and cut out coffee, red wine and cigarettes from your daily habits. Foods and drinks such as red wine and coffee are known to cause stains on teeth so try to avoid such things in your daily diet. Another remedy to try is chucking out your old toothbrush and replacing it with a new one in order to avoid any bacteria in your mouth. This will also help to keep your breath fresh. Clean your tongue in order to eliminate any tongue plaque. This is another way to keep your breath smelling fresh and clean. Consume foods such as apples, raw carrots and celery which help clean your teeth. These foods are considered ‘detergent’ foods because of their special cleaning and whitening powers. Try gargling apple cider vinegar in order to eliminate stains, kill bacteria and whiten teeth. Brush your teeth using baking soda every week to eliminate dark stains and keep teeth white and fresh. Use alcohol-free mouth wash to stay fresh and clean from mouth bacteria. Floss with eyes closed in order gain the ability to floss anywhere, anytime to remove plaque. Brushing twice a day, once when you wake up and once at night time before bed, will keep your teeth feeling and looking white and clean in the long-term. Finally, women should avoid using light-coloured lip sticks and lip glosses which tend to make teeth look more yellow.
