Whiteness of the teeth is difficult to achieve. We usually contaminate our teeth daily with staining food substances. But there are also foods that help whiten teeth. Who are they?
Maybe you think that chocolate stains the teeth and spoils them? This does not apply to dark natural chocolate. It contains a substance called theobromine, which forms a special protective or rather insulating coating on tooth enamel that prevents staining.
Strawberries are not just packed with vitamins and fiber, they are an ideal teeth whitening agent. They contain acids that act as a "whitener" for the tooth surface.
Baking soda has long been known for its whitening properties. Dissolve one spoonful of baking soda in one spoonful of water. Make a paste and rub into the teeth. Do not rub too roughly to avoid damaging the enamel.
Chew basil leaves. It is a powerful antibiotic that prevents the appearance of bacteria, and with them, discolored spots on the teeth.
Pineapple is also rich in acids and enzymes that act as a bleaching agent for accumulated stains on tooth enamel. The substance bromelain helps to break down plaque and make it easier to remove with a toothbrush.
Chewing on apples is one of the best ways to remove stains from teeth. In addition, apples also scrape tartar well. Apple skin has a very strong exfoliating effect, so don't peel it.
The substance D-limonene is found in oranges, more precisely in the peel of the orange. It helps remove smoking stains.
Never throw away banana peels. They can always help you whiten your smile by at least one shade. Just rub the inside of the banana peel on your teeth. Do this 2-3 times a week and you will enjoy white teeth forever.
