4 Home Remedies to Whiten your Teeth


Did you know teeth whitening is the number one requested cosmetic service today and its popularity continues to soar? Everyone wants a mouth full of white sparkling teeth. It not only makes your smile more beautiful, but it also makes you look younger, and more confident. According to Research America, Americans spend more than $1.4 billion on over-the-counter teeth whitening products each year!!!

We all know what stains your teeth; cranberry juice, red wine, coffee, tea, and the list goes on. But do you know what will make them white? Try these home remedies to whiten your teeth and quickly and safely brighten your smile.

  1. Baking Soda:

    Baking soda is one of the strongest and safest whitening ingredient out there. This is because it’s an acid neutralizer, that gently removes stains and buildup from the enamel of your teeth, making whiter teeth. You can sprinkle some baking soda on top of your toothpaste each day.

  2. Citrus Fruits:

    Citrus fruits can also help prevent staining. The acid causes the mouth to produce more saliva, which help clean the teeth and whiten your smile. However, use these in moderation. Overdoing it would be too acidic, which can be damaging to the teeth.

  3. Carrots:

    A patient told me about this home remedy. She attests to rubbing raw carrot sticks on your teeth to make them look brighter. According to Dr. Jeffrey Gross, carrots act like natural stain removers by increasing saliva production which is the body’s natural cleaning agent. As a bonus, it is full of vitamin C, which prevents gingivitis and gum disease. We have such smart patients =).

  4. Strawberries

    Studies show that strawberries contain an enzyme called malic acid, which can be found in whitening toothpaste. Malic acid in strawberries behaves as a natural cleaner for your teeth. So mash up strawberries or cut it in half and rub it on your teeth, leave it for a few minutes and rinse its sure to leave your smile bright white.

    If you are concerned about whitening your teeth, try these home remedies, they will be sure to surprise you. Of course, if you don’t have time to try these mild home remedies and want to jump straight into professional whitening, ask your dentist or call our office for a complimentary consultation.
