Yellow Teeth? Try These Remedies


Bhubaneswar: Yellow teeth can be due to regular consumption of tea, coffee, cigarettes, antibiotic use or even genetic factors. There are a number of effective treatments in the market but they’re not exactly easy on the pocket or worth the pain. If you’re seeking more traditional ways of going a shade lighter then we’ve got you some solid advice.

Baking Soda – Mix very little baking soda with water and pour it over your toothbrush before you start brushing. Or apply it using your fingertips and leave it on for about 1 minute. Baking soda can work wonders for your teeth but be sure to use it sparingly or it can erode the enamel.

Fruit Peel – Rub your teeth with the inside of a banana peel or orange peel. The peel is rich in magnesium, manganese, and potassium which recharge the enamel. Brush your teeth a few minutes later and use the peel at least twice a week.

Eat Your Way to White Teeth – Include a lot of crunchy vegetables like apples, carrots, and celery in your diet. They’re sharp and abrasive which means they’ll rub against the surface of your teeth without harming the enamel. Also consume a lot of milk and milk-based products as they increase pH levels and re-mineralise the teeth enamel, leaving behind a stunning shine.

Apple Cider Vinegar – Give your teeth a nice rub with apple cider vinegar, rinse off thoroughly and repeat for a few days to get that sparkling white smile. Doing this religiously may help you to a great extent in getting pearly whites.

Brushing and Flossing – Brush your teeth twice a day for about 2 minutes each. Ensure your brush has soft/medium bristles that don’t damage the gum. A lot of Indians don’t take flossing too seriously but it’s time they did. Flossing can improve all stains over time, especially the ones between your teeth. Enamel is made of vertical glass-like rods which is why when you brush from side to side it can damage the enamel. Brush in small circles to avoid weakening of the teeth.”
