Many people are now busy trying to be white. Not only the face wants to be white, the teeth also want to be white. So it is not surprising that various products have started to be created and sold in the market for this purpose.


However, most products use ‘bleach’ chemicals to whiten teeth and of course this will make consumers feel hesitant to try it. The price is not cheap. Expenses for such treatments or products can reach hundreds to thousands of dollars.


If you want to get whiter teeth but want to do it safely, try some of these natural ingredients as well as tips.


WHY DO TEETH BECOME YELLOW?
In fact, slightly yellow teeth are normal. This is because, as a person grows into adulthood, the tooth surface will become worn and reveal a yellowish dentin structure. That is why the teeth of adults will look duller than those of children.


Yet in addition, there are some foods that can have a yellowish effect on the enamel, which is the outermost layer on the teeth. The resulting plaque on the teeth can also cause the teeth to turn yellow. If your teeth turn yellow due to these 2 factors, you can overcome it in several ways as below.


7 WAYS TO WHITEN TEETH NATURALLY & SAFELY, WITHOUT SPENDING MORE




1. CHEWING 'MOUTH CLEANSER' FOOD

Chewing foods such as apples, celery or carrots is said to make teeth whiter due to its fibrous texture.

By chewing it as a snack, you can clean the food residue stuck between the teeth and also wipe the yellowish plaque that results in the crevices.

In addition to being a healthy snack for the body, you can also have a glowing smile!




2. BAKING SODA

One of the most popular teeth whitening tips is to use baking soda.

Here's how, mix a quarter teaspoon of baking soda with a little toothpaste. Brush your teeth as usual and rinse with water. Do it once a week or every 2 weeks.

Don't overdo it because excessive use of baking soda is also said to corrode your tooth enamel.




3. TAKE HIGH CALCIUM FOODS

Some teeth turn yellowish due to the eroded enamel layer exposing the yellow layer of dentin underneath. Therefore, intake of high calcium foods such as milk, cheese and broccoli can help prevent erosion and at the same time maintain its whiteness.




4. BRUSH & FLOS

Don’t underestimate the routine of brushing and flossing your teeth. Toothpaste can help remove dirt from teeth while the use of floss can remove food waste effectively.

Some food stuck in the crevices of the teeth cannot be cleaned properly using a toothbrush. Food left long in the crevice can produce bacteria and dental plaque.




5. DENTAL TREATMENT AVAILABLE AT THE CLINIC

The teeth whitening process can be done in a clinic, but it involves the use of the active ingredient which is hydrogen peroxide. This material produces free radicals that are able to act to dissolve the yellow color on the tooth surface.

Although very effective, it should be done by a qualified dental officer. Ideally, this teeth whitening procedure should only be done for certain situations. Don’t make it a daily practice as it is not healthy for dental health.





6. SALT

The use of salt is believed to be able to add a source of minerals to the teeth and at the same time highlight the white color.

The trick is to apply salt on the teeth like the steps used by baking soda above. Then brush and rinse as usual.

Although it can act as an antibacterial, avoid adding salt to the gums as it can hurt.






7. LIMIT COFFEE & SUGAR DRINKS

Coffee is one of the bitter enemies of your teeth which is known to be the cause of yellow teeth in addition to cigarettes and fizzy drinks. This does not mean you should avoid it 100%, however you may be able to limit the quantity of its intake each day.

This is because sugary drinks and foods can promote the growth of Streptocuccus Mutans bacteria, which are the main bacteria that cause plaque and gingivitis that damage teeth and affect whiteness.





8 . USE STRAW WHEN DRINKING

If you want to avoid quick yellow teeth, drink sugary drinks or coffee through a straw because this action can avoid direct contact with the teeth.

If there is no straw, try to make sure your mouth is rinsed after 30 minutes of enjoying the drink.
