Changes in the color of your teeth may be subtle and happen gradually. Some yellow color may be inevitable. Teeth can look more yellow or darken especially as you age.
Remedies for yellow teeth
Here are the 4 natural ways for getting rid of yellow teeth.
1. Brushing your teeth Regularly
Your first plan of action should be to brush your teeth more often and in the correct manner. It’s especially important that you brush after consuming foods and drinks that can lead to yellow teeth.
However, be careful with brushing immediately after consuming acidic foods and drinks. Brushing right away can make the acids brush away more enamel and lead to erosion.
Brush your teeth at least twice a day for atleast 2 minutes. Brushing with a whitening toothpaste has also been scientifically shown to whiten your teeth.
2. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide
Using a paste made of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide is said to remove plaque buildup and bacteria to get rid of stains.
3. Coconut oil pulling
Coconut oil pulling is said to remove plaque and bacteria from the mouth, which helps to whiten teeth.
Rinse your mouth with water and then drink a full glass of water. Then brush your teeth.
4. Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can be used in very small amounts to whiten teeth.
It is noted that it has the potential to cause damage to the hardness and surface structure of teeth. So, use it with caution.
