Here are some remedies you can try at home.

Baking Soda and Peroxide

While you wouldn't want to swallow a lot of hydrogen peroxide, you may want to make a paste of peroxide and baking soda to brush onto your teeth. Be sure you rinse thoroughly. Not only will this mixture get your teeth ultra clean, but it can also whiten them. If you don't want to use peroxide, you can substitute apple cider vinegar for peroxide.

[[[H2: Use Citrus Peels]]

Many cultures use citrus peels, rubbing them on their teeth to brighten them. Citrus, which contains vitamin C, is a wonderful natural way to brighten and whiten your teeth. If you rub citrus peels on your teeth, be sure to brush and floss your teeth afterwards.

Brush and Floss

At the risk of sounding repetitive, brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day every day gives your teeth that extra shine. That's because the bacteria in your mouth, which are always present, create plaque daily, which can discolor your teeth. If you don't brush and floss regularly, your plaque can harden into tartar, which can permanently discolor your teeth. Also, once your plaque hardens, only a dentist can remove it.

Dental Visits

Speaking of the dentist, one way to keep your teeth white and healthy is to visit your dentist regularly. If you visit the dentist once every six months, you will have whiter teeth than people who don't visit the dentist regularly. Dentists can also make sure you don't have tooth decay or gum disease that can give you a less-than-bright smile. By taking care of your teeth, you are giving yourself the gift of a white smile for life.
