There are so many teeth cleaning hacks you can do in between your cleaning appointments at your dentist, to make sure you are properly maintaining your oral health.
Eat Firm Foods
Detergent foods are foods that are crisp and firm, cleaning teeth as you eat. Apples are one of those foods, they are like a toothbrush straight from nature! Carrots, celery and popcorn are also other great teeth cleaning foods that will have your pearly whites feeling extra clean. They are also foods that you can eat last, if you know you will not be able to brush your teeth.
Swish with Apple Cider Vinegar
We all know how healthy apple cider vinegar is, not only for your body but for your teeth and oral health as well. Swishing your mouth with some diluted apple cider vinegar will kill bacteria in your mouth that causes bad breath, whiten your teeth and remove stains from staining foods.
Brush with Baking Soda
Brushing with baking soda on a regular basis can be too abrasive, but including this natural remedy in your weekly routine can make a big difference. Baking soda whitens teeth and helps fade stains. Be more careful with baking soda as it can be harsh if used too often.
Pick the Right Lipstick
If you wear lipstick, you know that certain colours can bring out the yellowness in your teeth, and others make them look bright and white. Red lipstick with blue undertones will make them look white, while red lipstick with yellow or orange undertones will make them look yellow. For nudes, choose sheer formulas with some gloss to make your teeth look bright and shiny.
