Say Cheese! 5 Easy Ways to Get Whiter Teeth at Home

 Looking to brighten your smile without spending a fortune? Here are five ways to get whiter in the comfort of your own home.

 We all want to rock a whiter smile! So how is that you can get those pearly-whites you're dreaming of without causing damage? Truth is, there are many DIY teeth whitening options.

Don't be afraid to smile wide in photos. These tips will rid your teeth of decades worth of grime. Here are five of the easiest ways you can get whiter teeth at home.  

1. Get Whiter Teeth Using Baking Soda 

Baking soda is something that you can find in your kitchen. It's a cheap alternative to abrasive teeth whitening kits. Plus, you don't have to spend half an hour wearing a strip. 

Take some baking soda and pour a little on your toothbrush. Brush your teeth like you would with toothpaste. Brushing teeth with baking soda whitens yellow teeth over time!  

2. Switching Up Your Tooth Paste

There are plenty of whitening toothpaste options at your local grocery store. The next time you run to the store, check out the toothpaste section. Don't aim only for pastes that say whitening. 

Look at the ingredients list and check for hydrogen peroxide. Higher concentrations will give you whiter teeth.  

3. Being Mindful of Your Diet 

The best way to achieve that perfect white smile is to watch what foods and liquids you have. Too much coffee or sweets lead to stains. Knowing this, you can work to prevent staining in the first place. 

After having a soda, rinse your mouth out with water. You can do the same with coffee or candy. This will stop staining, and even prevent decay! Also, a healthy diet will not only improve your health but your teeth as well. 

4. Whitening Strips 

Aside from toothpaste, another effective way to get whiter teeth is whitening strips. Some are hesitant to try teeth whitening strips because they're afraid of:

  • Tooth sensitivity 
  • Strips that are too gel-like or cause a coating on teeth 
  • Amount of time they have to wear strips 

For the most part, tooth sensitivity only occurs if the strips are on too long. Treatments only take, on average, about half an hour or less. Different brands will offer an array of methods to avoid gels if you don't like them. 

5. When the At-Home Needs a Boost 

When no at-home remedies are working out for you, it's time to visit your dentist. They can offer you stronger whitening kits for you to use at home. While it can be more expensive than over-the-counter, they work! 

Your yellow teeth will be a thing of the past. Dentists will also know the best methods of teeth whitening for sensitive teeth. Some over-the-counter whitening kits can be abrasive. 

It's best to consult your dentist when any issues arise to avoid damage to the enamel.  

Living Your Best Life 

Trying to get whiter teeth is a simple journey. If one product or method doesn't work, don't give up! For some, it can take a few tries, but the end result is always worth it.
