A “Hollywood smile” is something that a lot of people want when caring for their teeth, but this can be challenging to obtain. However, with the help of a cosmetic and specialist dentist London or another professional service up and down the UK, you can get whitened teeth with ease. Although this is an option with outstanding results, there are also a number of at-home treatments that deliver results more gradually without the use of harsh chemicals.
Brushing With Baking Soda
One of the ways that you can whiten your natural smile is by using baking soda. By brushing your teeth with baking soda and water, this will help to remove stains from the surface of the tooth and keep them looking brilliantly white and healthy.
Another way to brighten your teeth without the use of harsh chemicals is through oil pulling. This is the process of swishing oil around the mouth to pull away harmful bacteria from the teeth and gums, as well as helping to remove any harmful residue from around the teeth that can cause plaque or other forms of build-up. This can be completed in the morning before you have breakfast or at night before you sleep to remove harmful bacteria and keep you as healthy as possible throughout the day.
Try Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is also beneficial for your teeth as it helps to remove stains and whiten the teeth. If you have stubborn stains on the surface of the tooth, rub apple cider vinegar directly onto the tooth and rinse with water. If you want a method that is far less abrasive to the surface of the tooth, combine one teaspoon of vinegar within a cup of water and swish to remove bacteria and whiten teeth all in one.
Use An Electric Toothbrush
If using oil and vinegar on the surface of the tooth does not appeal to you, then using an electric toothbrush may be far more beneficial. Not only will it help to keep the teeth clean, but the vibrations and simple brush head will help to brush all around the tooth for a deep clean that you would not get with a regular manual toothbrush.
Though this is one of the most common forms of teeth whitening, a whitening toothpaste could be the perfect way to brighten teeth gradually whilst leaving your mouth feeling fresh. With a number of brands making their own whitening toothpastes for almost any dental problem, the perfect solution can be bought over the counter.
In addition to toothpaste being widely available, you can also purchase a mouthwash either at the drug store or in a supermarket. This is an affordable way to brighten the teeth gradually, allowing you to have a mouth that had been deep cleaned as well as becoming gradually whiter.
At-Home Whitening Treatment
If you have tried the other methods that are on the market but have had no luck, an at-home whitening treatment may be better suited to you! With a number of treatments as well as whitening strips available, you can find a treatment that works well with your teeth to deliver results that you are happy with, without needing to visit the dentist.
Whether you are looking to maintain your white teeth following another treatment or you are looking to save money and gradually whiten your teeth with an at-home treatment, the choice is completely up to you. Which will you be choosing?
