Yellow teeth are not a sign of poor oral hygiene, but people often think they are. Many people struggle with self-esteem due to the color of their teeth. Some people have expensive teeth whitening procedures to boost their image. However, you don’t have to break the bank to whiten your teeth. You can use some effective ingredients around your home to whiten your teeth.
HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO WHITEN YOUR TEETH IN FIVE MINUTES.
These may not last very long.
MUSTARD OIL AND SALT
It is a unique home remedy to whiten teeth and kill harmful bacteria in the mouth. Mustard oil is extracted from mustard seeds and has many uses. It has been used since ancient times in the Southeast region to make hair long and shiny. When mixed with salt, it acts as a perfect natural whitening agent. One part salt and three parts mustard oil is all you need. So, if you are taking one teaspoon of salt, use three teaspoons of mustard oil and rub your teeth for a few minutes. You can use your fingers to massage the gums and teeth or gently use your toothbrush. Do this for about three minutes and see the results for yourself.
BAKING SODA AND LEMON JUICE
This is another way to whiten your teeth at the comfort of your own home. Place a few tablespoons of baking soda on a small plate. Now squeeze fresh lemon juice into it. Keep adding lemon juice until it becomes a paste. Now wipe your mouth and remove excess saliva from your teeth. Then take your toothbrush and apply a layer of toothpaste. Leave the paste on your teeth for a minute and rinse. Do not leave it longer than this as it will affect the tooth enamel. If you don’t have fresh lemon juice, you can replace it with water. Leave the water and baking soda paste for three minutes and rinse.
Bananas are amazing. They’re great just the way they are and can be used in desserts, smoothies, and milkshakes. The best thing is that even the peel is a useful natural product. Rub the white side of the peel on your teeth for a few minutes and brush your teeth as usual. Do this two to three times a week and see the results for yourself.
