Did you know teeth whitening is the number one requested cosmetic service today and its popularity continues to soar? Everyone wants a mouth full of white, sparkling teeth. It not only makes your smile more beautiful, but it also makes you more confident. Americans spend more than $1.4 billion on over-the-counter teeth whitening products each year!
2. Citrus Fruits:
Citrus fruits can also help prevent staining. The acid causes the mouth to produce more saliva, which help clean the teeth and whiten your smile. However, use these in moderation. Overdoing it would be too acidic, which can be damaging to the teeth.
A patient told me about this home remedy. She attests to rubbing raw carrot sticks on your teeth to make them look brighter. According to Dr. Jeffrey Gross, carrots act like natural stain removers by increasing production of saliva, which is the body’s natural cleaning agent. As a bonus, it is full of vitamin C, which prevents gingivitis and gum disease.
