We all want white teeth. And while whitening products are safe, we don’t want to constantly use chemicals in our mouths. Here are some natural, safe, and effective ways to whiten your teeth at home:
- 1. Purple: Use a purple toothpaste and mouthwash, like PopWhite. Purple is the opposite of yellow, so when you put purple on top of stained teeth, they will appear whiter.
- 2. Clean: Brush your teeth thoroughly. Plaque build up is yellow, so keeping your teeth clean will keep them looking whiter. Just make sure to use a soft toothbrush and brush gently.
- 3. Milk: Add milk to your coffee. The milk will dilute the staining coffee, but the proteins also coat your teeth to prevent the coffee from touching the enamel at all.
- 4. Make-up: Use red lipstick or tinted lip balm with blue undertones. This has the same effect as the purple toothpaste and mouthwash. Try to avoid lip colors with orange undertones, as those will bring out the yellow in your teeth. Bronzer will make your skin look tan without the harmful radiation; it will also make your teeth look whiter in contrast.
