Our teeth are basically pearl-white. Over the time, depending upon our habits and what we ingest, the color changes. If you would ever ask a dentist, he/she will tell you that he/she would have seen teeth in all colors possible, i.e. yellow (the most common), grey, black, green, among others. Each of the deviation in colors indicates some deviation done in the diet and habits.
The doctors as well as the dentists are always using some type of chemicals on the teeth for whitening; for those who believe in naturopathy, good or bad there should be no chemicals used for whitening of the teeth. True, this is why this article will point towards natural therapy. Promoting the natural teeth whitening methods is an excellent idea, which can definitely result in pearl-white teeth without having too much trouble or chemical intervention.
Choices for You to Consider
1. Stop smoking instant-drinking coffee, tea and smoking are the major reasons for the discoloration of the teeth. Smoking in particular, is very harmful for the color of the teeth, as the nicotine is deposited on the teeth causing ugly grey-black stains all over. These stains are very stubborn and often would require the intervention of a dentist and laser whitening system to get back the original color, if at all. This interferes directly with the best natural teeth whitening systems you may like to introduce, preventing it from giving the best possible results.
2. Use home off-the-kitchen-shelf ingredients-some of the most popular natural teeth whitening ingredients in the leading brands of the teeth whitening products are bamboo powder, calcium carbonate and silica, these can be used separately or in combination to brush teeth for making them white. When and if you do so, please ensure that the powder is not abrasive. If the powder is abrasive, then discontinue its use immediately as this would harm the teeths enamel.
3. Use the correct mouth hygiene-ordinarily you should brush your teeth after every meal you consume. This is common knowledge, though this seldom followed by the ordinary man. Usually, people brush twice a day, once in the morning and once in the night and many times, the night brushing is forgotten. Unless you have a constant and regular mouth hygiene routine, it is not possible to have white teeth for a long time.
4. Use salt at regular intervals-plain salt is a great natural teeth whitening agent. Once in a while if you brush your teeth with salt, say once a week, you will not need any more help with your teeth. Use of the salt also improves the strength of the gums. The only thing that one has to watch out is that the salt be powdered extra fine so there is no abrasion action on the enamel of the teeth.
