Everyone wants a beautiful, gleaming smile that can brighten up a room. A shiny set of pearly whites is the key to great confidence and that Insta-ready glow that you wish for, especially on your big day! Wouldn’t you want a smile as bright as your dress as you walk down the aisle? Here are ten secrets to achieving that stunning smile!
A- Apple cider vinegar
Swish around some apple cider vinegar in your mouth early in the morning before you brush your teeth. It helps remove stains and whitens teeth effectively.
B- Baking soda
Baking soda is a natural bleaching agent that helps remove stains. Add a diluted amount to your toothpaste twice a week and - voila! your bright smile is here to stay!
C- Crunchy and Crisp
Foods that are crunchy or crisp like apples, raw carrots, celery, and popcorn help naturally clean teeth and help them stay whiter and brighter. Say yes to the crunch!
Cheese helps lessen discolorations on the teeth by speeding up the neutralization of acid and remineralization of enamel. If you are looking for a healthier option especially in order to fit into that beautiful wedding dress, go for yogurt or milk!
E- Eat Strawberries
Strawberries contain malic acid, a natural teeth whitener. Mash a ripe strawberry and brush your teeth with that goopy paste for a few minutes to get rid of yellow stains in a jiffy!
F- Forget the stains
Wine, coffee, colas, and black tea can put your beautiful smile at risk! The bottom line here is if it’s dark in color, choose not to eat those foods.
G- Grab a straw
If you are an advent coffee or wine drinker, cutting out these teeth-yellowing drinks completely can be difficult. Well, we have the right tool for you - a straw! Although sipping wine looks quite amusing, it can help keep the teeth clean and white.
H- Have some oil
Oil pulling is an age-old folk remedy that has been known to ‘detox’ the mouth and to help whiten teeth faster. The trick here is to swish concentrated oil in your mouth for some time and well, that’s it! Your teeth are as bright as ever.
I- Include the peel
This might sound crazy but hear us out. Fruit peels of bananas or oranges are rich in magnesium, manganese, and potassium which helps recharge and brighten your enamel. Use the peel twice a week for best results.
J- Just Brush and Floss
Back to basics! The American Dental Association recommends you brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once a day to clean and brighten your teeth.
