We all secretly want a snow-white Hollywood smile, but unfortunately that is not for everyone. Celebrities often whiten their teeth, which is very expensive and moreover does not always give a natural result. Fortunately, there are also some simple tricks with which you can whiten your teeth yourself. All completely natural, there is no bleach involved!
With these 7 tricks you create radiant white teeth yourself.
Of course it is obvious, but a nice white bite starts with good brushing and cleaning of your teeth. Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes, preferably electrically. It is extra important to brush well before bedtime. When you sleep, you make less saliva, while saliva cleanses your mouth. If you skip brushing your teeth in the evening, you create a breeding ground for all the bacteria from the past day. Jakkes! Tip: rinse your mouth regularly with mouthwash and try to floss as often as possible, to remove any food scraps.
2. Apple cider vinegar
Okay, it's not as effective as having your teeth whitened professionally, but it is a safe, natural and inexpensive alternative to white teeth: apple cider vinegar. Make a mixture of 2/3 of water and 1/3 of apple cider vinegar and rinse your mouth once a day for one minute each day. Your teeth will whiten after a few rinses!
3. Raw vegetables and fruit
Fruits and vegetables are not only good for your health, but also for your teeth. Eating apples, nuts and cauliflower removes stains and deposits on your teeth and prevents cavities. Extra reason to bring a bowl of raw food to the office.
Strawberries contain malic acids that can cause white teeth. For this, cut the strawberry in half and rub the white, inner part of the strawberry over your teeth. Note: acid is not so good for your tooth enamel, so don't do this too often!
5. Natural mouthwash
Mix a little salt with water and use this mixture as a natural mouthwash to remove plaque. In this case also applies: do not use it too often.
Good news for lovebirds, because a good kissing session works wonders for your teeth. Because you create extra saliva during a kiss, your teeth are protected against plaque. A good excuse to do it more often!
7. Optical deception
Do you want a trick that takes less time than the above? Then simply fake your white smile by wearing a red lipstick with a blue undertone. This makes your teeth appear whiter than they actually are. Strong example of optical deception!
