Are their any household items that can help whiten my teeth?
Facts: Mixing baking soda and water together will create a household remedy acting as tooth paste to brush your teeth with. However with this option, brushing your teeth to hard can damage your gums. This method is no where as effective as modern whitening agents that we can provide at Oasis Dental Broadbeach, although it is proven to lighten your teeth a few shades lighter. Eating fruit and vegetables can be beneficial for removing food particles from building up plaque, which will essentially reduce staining. Brushing your teeth with olive oil is another debated teeth whitening solution although it has shown little effects in providing quality results. Many believe that an old fashioned method of rubbing orange peels on your teeth will lighten your teeth, despite these house hold solutions there is no better way then maintaining your teeth other then maintaining regular dental check ups.
