Best 5 Tips To Whiten Your Teeth at Home

Posted on January 21st, 2015 by

Chicago-Illinois-dentistIf you are in search of traditions ways that you can whiten your teeth from your own home, here are 5 great ideas for you.
1. Try Baking Soda
Combine a small amount of baking soda with water and soak your toothbrush in it for a few seconds before you begin brushing. You can even apply it with your fingers. Baking soda is very effective on your teeth, be cautious as overuse can erode tooth enamel.
2. Banana or Orange Peel
Take an orange or banana peel and rub the inside of the peel on your teeth. The rich deposits of magnesium and potassium will help recharge the tooth enamel. Then brush your teeth. Try using peels at least two times a week.
3. Choose Crunchy Veggies
You can eat your way to whiter teeth by munching on crunchy vegetables like celery, carrots and even apples. They will rub against your teeth surface and not harm the enamel. Milk products also increase the pH levels in your mouth which can re-mineralize the enamel of your teeth and make them shine.
4. Apple Cider Vinegar
Try rubbing your teeth some vinegar, specifically the apple cider kind. Afterwards rinse them off and repeat every couple days to find that sparkle in your smile again.
5. Brush and Floss
Using a soft-bristled toothbrush, brush your teeth a least two times each day. Flossing actually can improve tooth stains if done consistently, particularly the ones in between your teeth. To avoid weakening your teeth, brush in small circles.
If you have very yellow teeth, the best bet might be to come in to your Chicago Illinois dentist for some professional whitening treatments. We can help you attain that perfect smile.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
