White teeth

January 6, 2009 RENU

  1. Gather ashes from a wooden fire, dip wet toothbrush in it, brush with the soot. Brush with toothpaste  after for minty taste. Potassium hydroxide crystals in the ashes make teeth whiter right away. However, only hard wood ash contains significant concentrations of potassium hydroxide, soft wood ash does not. Exercise caution when using hard wood ash too often as a tooth whitening agent. The harshness of the potassium hydroxide could significantly damage your teeth over time.
  2. Brush with baking soda on tooth brush for 14days.
  3. Brushing with mashed strawberries on toothbrush whitens really well but be sure to brush teeth immediately afterwards with fluoride toothpaste & also floss. The sugar & acid in the strawberry will harm your teeth. Also be cautious of brushing too vigorously as the strawberry seeds could damage the gums. The best home methods are baking soda or hydrogen peroxide. Try to stick with these. Remember that these are not a substitute for brushing with fluoride toothpaste — you must brush with fluoride toothpaste after ANY whitening method to prevent tooth decay.
  4. Vitamin C will damage teeth quicker than anything else. So brushing with lemon juice is bad. It makes teeth whiter at first b’cos it breaks down the composition of your teeth…first the stained layer, then the regular layers of enamel until you are getting them pulled. So use very sparingly! It’s an acid and can harm your teeth. You may end up with a LOT of cavities and irreparably damaged tooth enamel. It causes the teeth to lose calcium (which gives teeth some of their off-white color). Calcium is a major component of healthy teeth, and once it is lost, your teeth become very susceptible to decay. DO NOT use lemon juice for whitening.
  5. Homemade tooth paste: One of the better home recipes for whiter teeth is a paste consisting of baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, table salt and a dab of toothpaste. Mix it all together and brush away stains.
