That pearly smile is certainly desired for; it is known to make you appear a whole lot more approachable by those around you. The way your teeth look also determine your health so you will always want to keep the clean and bright, glinting in the sunlight. Here are home made remedies for that desired results

Go for the Banana Peel:

While it sounds  very much on the strange side, using the inside of the banana peel to whiten your teeth actually works! Rub the inside portion against your teeth, one minute at the top and one at the bottom and let the residue sit there for about ten minutes before using a dry toothbrush to clean it up.

Eat Lots of Cheese:

While it may not whiten the teeth on its own per sey, eating cheese has shown up as having anti-cavity properties and the increased saliva production helps wash off the residue staining your teeth at the moment. So for nothing else but to keep teeth in a healthier state, do eat lots of cheese!

Bring on the Strawberries

You should be careful with the citric fruits though, as, while they clear out the plaque and other debris, studies have shown it reducing the surface hardness of the bone by 10% through erosion. We certainly do suggest having a healthy amount of the fruit on a regular basis though. You can also add salt and baking soda to the strawberries and create a scrub that would break down all the unwanted matter. The salt acts as an abrasive scrubbing away the stains, while the baking soda does much in terms of augmenting the effect of the salt. You will need at least 2 strawberries, a pinch of sea salt and ½ teaspoon of baking soda. Mash them together and put on your teeth for 5 minutes. The results will be fantastic. You can do this a few times a week.

• Apple Cider Vinegar:

This is an awesome way to remove the stains from your teeth easily and kill the bacteria living in your mouth. Mixing half a teaspoon with water will ensure the acid levels are lowered, and brushing with regular toothpaste afterwards will have double the effect. With this, you will see very professional-like results, but only after a month of usage. It would be important to stay vigilant and brush afterwards with regular toothpaste to remove the acidity from your pretty teeth and make you more confident with your smile.

• Baking Soda and Lemon Juice:

The baking soda is rather abrasive and perfect to scrub away all the dirt and staining, with the lemon juice being more of a natural bleach. Just don’t overdo it, as it is acid and abrasion you are using. Play with the amount you use and you will find the perfect balance for your own teeth. Use it often enough to get the right results without hurting your teeth in the process. We’d recommend once or twice a week. You can use the baking soda on its own for 2-3 days consecutively before giving it a break and coming back a few days later.

Coconut Oil for Rinsing:

You will need about a tablespoon of coconut oil for this awesome natural whitening method that will bleach your teeth with ease. This is called oil polling as well, and is a very old remedy to help whiten the teeth. It promotes gum health and keeps your teeth from yellowing from the plaque build-up. Plus, the fresh breath is a nice bonus. Before brushing your teeth you should scoop out a tablespoon of the oil, cold pressed preferably, and swish it around your mouth for up to 15 minutes before spitting out and brushing teeth. It is awesome and many see the benefits rather quickly.

Avoid the Dark Drinks!

It may seem rather obvious, but most people still drink lots of coffee, lots of coke and lots of black tea. Keep away from these things that can cause your teeth to turn yellow and plaque to build up. Keep away from cigarettes as well, as smoking certainly is not helping your teeth or your gums
