5 Simple Teeth Whitening Techniques Your Dentist DOESN'T Want You To Know
By: DREOW Health & Beauty Limited
Thankfully, you don’t have to rush to the dentist’s office for a professional whitening to brighten your less than pearly whites. Dr. Marc Lowenberg, cosmetic dentist at Lowenberg, Lituchy & Kantor (http://www.lowenberglituchykantor.com/)
If you’re looking for a quick fix, check out these five inexpensive hacks for brightening your cheesy grin at home.
5. Fruit peels
Fruits and veggies can be an easy way to whiten teeth without much thought. Certain fruit peels can be great for removing surface stains. Lowenberg suggests buffing your teeth with the peel of an orange or chewing raw, crunchy vegetables such as carrots or celery.
4. Oil pulling
Gwyneth Paltrow swears by this simple, age-old remedy.
Swishing a teaspoon or two of vegetable-based coconut, sesame or olive oil in your mouth for about 20 minutes a day removes harmful bacteria and gives your teeth a serious bleaching treatment. It also gets rid of that nasty bad breath.
Oil pulling is best done in the morning before eating or drinking anything. Don’t forget to brush well after rinsing!
3. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide
Lowenberg additionally suggests mixing a teaspoon of baking soda with hydrogen peroxide into a paste for a brighter smile.
He believes you should “use it up to once daily in place of your fluoride paste to polish away surface stains.”
If you are looking to whiten teeth quickly at home, this method will make teeth appear brighter instantly.
2. Whitening strips
Whitening strips are not just consumer tested but also Lowenberg-approved.
Though the results vary from person to person depending on how receptive one’s teeth are to the bleaching gel, they’re the best of the at-home options after the teeth whitening kit.
The bleach within the strips remains in contact with the tooth enamel long enough to deliver noticeable results.
1. LED whitening kits
Social media celebs are cashing in by snapping pics with various at-home LED whitening kits. Although that may throw you off, these little kits actually have serious whitening potential.
Lowenberg says at-home LED kits are generally safe, as they emit light with a wavelength that falls within the “visible light spectrum” and are not strong enough to cause harm.
The DREOW Teeth Whitening Kit is one of the best kits out there for a complete all in one home whitening system.
