To whiten your teeth home, in 3 minutes, instead of visit the dentist, use one of the simplest solutions. This solution is very cheap and doesn’t affect the enamel during the whitening process. So, all you need is a lemon, a teaspoon of baking soda, and a clean toothbrush.
Take the lemon and cut it in half, squeeze its juice in a bowl. Add a tablespoon of baking soda, and you will see how the mixture will fizz up. Wait for a minute until the reaction is over. The mixture should have the consistency of a paste. If not, add a little more baking soda. When the reaction between the citric acid and the soda is done, stir for 30 seconds and then apply the mixture on the toothbrush. Brush all of your teeth thoroughly, just as you would with regular toothpaste. Brush for at least 2 minutes. After you’re done brushing wait 1 minutes before rinse your mouth. Use this whitening method no more than once a week.
We recommend you to use a clean new toothbrush, and to use it only for this weekly process. If you don’t have a lemon, you can use the juice of a lime and if you don’t have that either, you can use water to create the mixture (but won’t have the same efficiency). Also, the treatment shouldn’t be used by those who wear dental braces, because it would cause uneven whitening that would be noticeable once the braces are removed.
The mixture may taste a little bit strange but it is completely safe and non-toxic for use, in case you accidentally swallow it. After 4 months of use, you should begin to see the results in a form of a more whiter and brighten smile. To keep your teeth white avoid food that can stain them, such as: black coffee, tea, red wine, cola, dark colored fruit juice, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, tomato sauce, blueberries, or curry. Sugar-free gum is marketed as being ‘healthy’ for your teeth but most sugar-free gum contains potentially dangerous aspartame or other artificial sweeteners. Opt for a stevia based gum instead.
