There are many ways to achieve white glowing teeth, from natural to medical irrespective of the method, getting your tooth cleaned is very important for personal hygiene. We all know that teeth begin to yellow with age so those in old age are less bordered about their teeth; it is understandable. So what are the ways of whitening the tooth? Let’s look at that below.

Natural method of whitening tooth

There are different natural methods of whitening teeth and truth be told all do not achieve the same result. The natural processes of whitening teeth are;

  • Making dietary changes

Study shows that acidic foods can make the teeth look yellow by wearing down the enamel. Therefore, people who do not want their teeth to be yellow should avoid the excessive consumption of coffee, citrus and soda as these have acid in them.

  • Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is the act of washing the mouth with oil to remove bacteria, dirt, and debris. Oil pulling is not a substitute for flossing or brushing, but study shows that continuous oil pulling kind of whitens the teeth. Examples of such oils are sesame oil, coconut oil and sunflower oil.

  • Brushing with baking soda

Yes, your common baking powder can be used to whiten the teeth, how is this possible you may ask, it is possible because baking powder can polish stains that are in the surface of the teeth and it can also be used to fight bacteria, in other words preventing plaque and tooth decay.

  • Using Fruits

A study shows that bromelain and Papain, which are enzymes that are found in pineapples and papayas, may both help to whiten teeth. So continuous eating of these fruits not only gives vitamins but also whiten the teeth.

Medical Method Of Whitening Tooth

The medical method of whitening teeth is easy and straight forward compared to that of a natural method; the medical method is known as laser whitening or power whitening. It involves putting a rubber shield or a gel on your gums to protect them and a bleaching product is painted onto the teeth. After that, the laser is shone on the teeth to activate the chemical. The laser is responsible for speeding up the reaction of the whitening product and the color change in the teeth can be seen almost immediately. Laser whitening is said to make teeth up to five or six shades lighter and this is a kind of disadvantage to some people because it makes their teeth sensitive. This is the reason not everyone is eligible for laser whitening.
