Posted on 3/1/2024 by Weo Admin
Teeth whitening done at Riverwind Dental in Richmond, VAAdults always want to put their best foot forward, and that means projecting a bright, confident smile to the world. If your teeth are not as sparkly white as you would like, you may want to think about teeth whitening.

However, some adults do not want to use chemicals to whiten their teeth because they are afraid those chemicals will make their teeth more sensitive or they have chemical sensitivities. If you are worried about teeth-whitening chemicals, there are natural ways to whiten your teeth.

Fruit and Veggie Alternatives to Teeth Whitening Chemicals

Luckily for humans, nature has provided us with ways to whiten our teeth without harsh chemicals, and you can start with what you eat. Some fruits and vegetables can act as natural tooth scrubbers. You can use celery and apples to rid your teeth of plaque that can stain them. Also, if you love citrus, rubbing orange peels against your teeth will help clean them and whiten them at the same time.

Other Natural Techniques

Nature has given humans a lot of ways to whiten their teeth without chemical whiteners. Many people swear by rinsing their mouths each day with apple cider vinegar because vinegar is a natural whitener. Both baking soda and activated charcoal also whiten your teeth. If the thought of using either of these directly on your teeth is not appetizing, you may want to try a natural toothpaste that contains those ingredients.

Many people also use oil-pulling techniques, which involve using vegetable oil, usually coconut oil, to rinse their mouths out in addition to brushing and flossing. Oil pulling has been used for centuries in South Asia to whiten teeth and eliminate the bacteria that can cause your teeth to turn yellow.

If you are unsure which natural technique is right for you to try, a good rule of thumb is to talk to one of our dentists. Many dentists are very familiar with natural techniques for tooth whitening. Also, if the natural techniques do not work, our dentists are also ready to talk to you about alternatives you may try. Why not give us a call today to set up an appointment?
