Natural Ways to Whiten Your Teeth

Summer is right around the corner and our dentists in downtown Chicago definitely think that’s something to smile about! It’s likely between your friends and family, you’ll take a lot of pictures this summer. Make sure your teeth are as white as they can be! In addition to taking advantage of our whitening services, we wanted to outline some ways you can naturally whiten your teeth at home.

Brush Them!
This one is probably the simplest and most effective way to whiten your teeth. Try to brush your teeth after eating or drinking as often as you can. This will get rid of the bacteria and food buildup in your mouth.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda
You may recognize the ingredient “hydrogen peroxide” from your mouthwash bottle. It’s a great way to effectively clean your entire mouth, gums included, in a short amount of time. As a bonus, it helps freshen breath by getting rid of bacteria. You may also mix a small amount of hydrogen peroxide with baking soda to make a runny paste. Brush this paste onto your teeth to help remove plaque for about 30 seconds.

Apple Cider Vinegar
It’s likely you can find this product in your kitchen, but it is a great tool for your oral health as well. Compounds like acetic acid, potassium, magnesium, probiotics and enzymes kill the bad bacteria in your mouth while simultaneously promoting growth of the healthy bacteria. Take a small amount of ACV on your finger and rub it on your teeth for around one minute. Then rinse with water or mouthwash. For best results, use this for a month.

Pure Dental Spa wants to help you get your whitest, most confident smile possible! Our dentists in downtown Chicago are available to answer any questions you may have about teeth whitening. Set up an appointment with us to ensure your pearly whites are picture perfect.
