Yellow teeth might have always plagued you.
And at some point you might have an urgent event to go to over the weekend and desperately need to have sparkly white teeth as soon as possible.
So you decide to try out the top 3 natural teeth whitening remedies your best friend Mr Google recommends.
If this sounds like you…
We did the legwork for you and discovered the top 3 solutions all have more than a few drawbacks.
Find out what they are, and you’ll literally save yourself weeks of trouble. Read on.
“Solution 1” Hydrogen Peroxide + Baking Soda
So apparently baking soda combined with water, releases free radicals that break down stain-causing molecules on tooth enamel.
This is supposed to help reduce the amount of stains on your teeth.
What they don’t tell you is how bad it tastes.
Or how long you have to leave it on. Some users recommend using a mouth guard with 2 parts baking soda to 1 part hydrogen peroxide, 10 minutes daily for 2 weeks.
2 whole weeks.
So here’s a possible routine you could follow every night
- Go down to the kitchen and open your dry ingredients cabinet
- Make this weird-tasting paste to put on your teeth
- Feel the slight roughness of the baking soda scrubbing your tooth surfaces
- Lie awake at night as you listen to your poor, abused tooth enamel weeping, “No… no more abrasives!!!
Baking Soda can erode your enamel if used repeatedly over time.
“Solution 2” Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
This was a weird one.
We all know that vinegar has some well-known uses – from cleaning to stain treatment to relieving insect bites.
But apple cider vinegar for TEETH stain removal?
According to Colgate, gargling apple cider vinegar in conjunction with baking soda actually can help remove stains and whiten teeth.
If used over a few weeks.
“So I have to wait a few weeks before actually seeing results? And I have to gargle vinegar???”
It gets worse.
Research has shown that apple cider vinegar, with its low pH levels, can be acidic enough to weaken your tooth enamel, which results in increased tooth sensitivity and potentially more decay and cavities.
With all this in mind, we recommend putting ACV in your mouth only when you eat it with your salad.
Apple Cider Vinegar takes too long to whiten teeth.
“Solution 3” Coconut Oil and Peppermint Leaf
This solution is by far the most interesting.
It doesn’t include baking soda or vinegar like the previous two, so it does seem very safe to use.
Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which is proven to be the most effective fatty acid to help fight harmful bacteria in the mouth that causes bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease.
But there is a very big problem.
When you eventually get down to applying this paste on your teeth and look at yourself in the mirror, you might just reel back in horror.
Because your mouth is a mass of green!
There’s no way you can go out into the world and flaunt your smile with this algae-esque paste in your mouth. If you really want to use this, perhaps you could use some peppermint oil instead.
And, just as with the ACV, this remedy can only work if done over a period of a few weeks.
Coconut oil and peppermint leaf paste takes way too long to whiten your teeth. Plus, it makes you look like you forgot to brush your teeth after eating a salad.
