Whiten Your Teeth With Strawberries

Whiten Your Teeth With Strawberries

Are you looking for a  natural, inexpensive, easy, do-it-yourself way to brighten your teeth? If you are, then you’ve come to the right place.

Tooth whitening is the most common dental procedure is tooth whitening. We all want whiter, brighter teeth. And, the best place to get a professional bleaching treatment is at your dentist’s office. However, these treatments do cost an arm and a leg.

Thankfully, strawberries which are there are natural and cheaper can help you achieve whiter teeth. That’s right! Strawberries contain gentle organic compounds called malic acid, which acts as an astringent to remove surface discolouration. The malic acid breaks down stain molecules for whiter teeth giving you a dazzling smile. The riper a strawberry, the higher the concentration of malic acid. 

Teeth whitening strawberries and baking soda recipe

1 strawberry
Baking soda

Using a spoon, crush the strawberry to a pulp and mix the strawberry pulp with baking soda. Then, apply the mixture onto your teeth using a soft toothbrush spreading it evenly over all your teeth. Leave the mixture on for 5-10 minutes before brushing thoroughly with normal toothpaste to help clean of the strawberry pulp mixture. Strawberries contain natural sugar, so you’ll have to brush. Rinse your mouth and floss to help get rid of any strawberry seeds.

For best results, do this at least once a week. However, try not to use this too often, because the acid can damage the enamel on your teeth.
