White Smile

We all love a bright smile and opt for teeth whitening treatments. While the treatments are not permanent solutions, you can always keep your teeth white with proper home care. There are several natural ways to keep your teeth white and flaunt a wonderful smile.


First Thing First

Nothing works better than brushing your teeth properly. Follow good oral hygiene to reduce the risk of getting tooth problems and yellow teeth. Brush your teeth twice daily. Don’t forget to floss at least once a day to remove plaque.

Drink and Rinse

Several drinks like coffee, tea and colas stain your teeth, reducing the whiteness. Avoid foods and beverages that may stain your teeth. If you want to consume such products, try to minimize their contact with your teeth. Use straw to drink such staining beverages. However make sure that you immediately rinse your teeth after drinking a staining beverage. It will minimize the damage.


The fruit offers abundant supply of citrus acid which can easily wear off the enamel from the teeth making them look whiter. However too much of citrus can cause harm by removing too much of enamel. So it would be best to drink orange juice only once in a while. This way you can have white teeth along with tasty nutrition.


Milk is friendly with our teeth. Its high calcium content strengthens our teeth, making the enamel healthier and whiter. However remember that nothing is good for teeth if it sticks to them for long. Brush or at least rinse your teeth after every glass of milk.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is one of the most efficient natural remedies for getting whiter teeth. It has natural cleaning and whitening abilities. Mix a pinch of salt and baking soda with few drops of water to make a paste. Now gently brush your teeth twice a week with this natural whitening paste. Make sure to rinse off the baking soda from your teeth after brushing.


Malic acid which is abundantly present in strawberries has great abilities to remove discoloring agents from teeth. Rubbing strawberries once in a while on your teeth can regain the whiteness. However, make sure to brush your teeth immediately after rubbing the strawberries on the teeth.
