I find myself reading and learning something new everyday so i decided to share that knowledge on a platform filled with curious minds.


If we leave out the physical qualities of a person that one deems "attractive" and focus solely on the quality and whiteness of teeth, you will begin to notice on powerful an impact it can have on your social and personal life. Your overall level of attractiveness will improve. Employers and employees will find you much more dependable and approachable then before. With that, your confidence and self image will improve which will have an positive impact on your personal life. Woman tend to find confidence to be a very attractive quality in a person.

Depending on the country you are from, going to the Dentist can be fairly inexpensive or you may require some time to save up enough money but even then you may not be willing. Not everyone is comfortable gong to the Dentist, whether you are a child or an adult. The natural home remedies i will introduce will save you a lot of money and headache but will take time to take effect. The products Dentists use are very effective and you notice the results on your teeth almost right away. You get what you paid for i suppose. The best course of action i recommend is combining the home remedies with at least a yearly visit to the Dentist. Besides whitening your teeth, they will clean under and around the gums and take the necessary steps to keep your teeth healthy and disease free.

Baking Soda

Baking soda, also known as Sodium Bicarbonate, is a of the most common products found in millions of household around the world. It can be used for surface stain removal, odor removal, a natural cleaner and degreaser and among many other uses. For the application to teeth, it will help remove surface stains and pungent odors (morning breath). Equal parts Baking soda to water will create a nice paste like consistency to apply on your teeth. Leave the paste on for 10-15 minutes. The Abrasiveness of Baking soda can damage the outer surface of your teeth (The Enamel), so limit its use to 2-3 times a week. One day use and 2 days regular toothpaste.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen Peroxide is the not so secret ingredient found in most Tooth Whitening Products. It has the effect of whitening teeth better than any other product. Some Tooth paste products and mouth wash contain very small amounts of Hydrogen Peroxide, as a way to reduce inflammation of the gums and prevent plaque. Plaque is a sticky but soft build up of millions of bacteria that negatively effects the teeth. Hydrogen Peroxide is used in higher concentrations by Dentists but is limited in concentration for over the counter use. Meaning, you will not get the same results as the products used by Dentists but that doesn't mean you will not see results over time. The main benefit of this approach is the way Hydrogen Peroxide passes deep into the core of the tooth where the molecules responsible for tooth discoloration reside. These molecules are broken down which results in a reduction of discoloration.

Apple Cider Vinegar

The active ingredient in Apple Cider Vinegar is Acetic Acid, which has the duel benefit of bleaching the teeth as well as having an antibacterial property. The antibacterial property will protect the gums by reducing the buildup of plaque and other bacteria. A solution of 1 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar to a cup of water should be used for best results. Do not use this solution everyday because the acidity will damage the enamel and irritate the gums over time. Use 2-3 times a week at most.

Above all less, you can take preventative steps to keep your teeth white longer without the constant use of products. limit, not eliminate, the consumption of Coffee, Tea, Soda Beverages, Wine (both red and white) and foods high in sugar. Also, excessive smoking will stain the outside of the teeth as well. Whenever you finish a meal, it is recommended you brush your teeth so that the teeth and gums are not exposed to the staining properties in food. For the listed beverages, rinse your mouth with water and wash away those stain inducing resides left on your teeth.

If you have tried everything at home and the over the counter products are not working as well as you hoped, then you will have to talk to your local Dentist and see what can be done.
