Not everyone can afford the time to achieve supermodel white teeth, but Dr. Oz has a great, natural solution that can be less irritating for sensitive gums, takes mere minutes and lights coffee and wine stains on your once pearly whites.
Try adding these natural whiteners to your diet for brighter, healthier teeth.
Natural Bleaching Agent: Strawberries
Strawberries are powerful teeth whiteners that contain both an astringent and vitamin C. The astringent in strawberries effectively aids in the removal of surface stains while vitamin C whitens teeth by clearing away plaque.
Natural Toothbrush: Apples
A crunchy apple acts like a toothbrush as you chew it. The process of chewing an apple removes excess food and bacteria from your mouth while scrubbing away surface stains. Apples also contain malic acid, a chemical used in teeth whitening products, which helps dissolve stains.
Natural Mouthwash: Raisins
Raisins help to keep your teeth white by inducing saliva production. An increased level of salvia naturally helps to rinse away plaque.
Still need a little extra help? Try this:
In a small bowl, mix a little bit of baking soda with the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon. The mixture should bubble slightly.
Using a cotton swab, wipe saliva and excess plaque from your teeth before brushing on the mixture. Leave the mixture on your teeth for a minute before gently brushing it off with a toothbrush.
Don’t leave the mixture on your teeth for any longer than a minute; the acid erode tooth enamel.
The process takes mere minutes! We all tried it on The Shelissa Cosmetics Team and have nothing but positive results!! Post your pictures of your pearly whites and comments and we'll send you a Shelissa Cosmetics product. Be you, be beautiful!
