Beautiful white teeth are an important component of your overlook; teeth are usually the first thing that people notice, so it is important to make sure that your teeth are white, healthy, and attractive. That being said, many people suffer from yellow or stained teeth. This is often either because they did not brush regularly, or because they consume substances that negatively affect the health of their teeth.

 

Before I go into the detail of this, let me tell you some of the main causes of yellow teeth.

Causes of Yellow Teeth

• Food and drinks like coffee and tea
• Tobacco (smoking)
• Some medicines
Tooth calculus
• Genetics
• Increasing age
• Environment


5 Ways to Whiten Teeth Naturally


Here are 5 ways to make sure your teeth stay white, naturally:   

1. Brush and Floss Regularly         

Never underestimate the power of brushing and flossing regularly. The most potent source of bacteria and other germs that can harm your teeth is leftover food in your mouth and generally mouths that are unclean, so it is very important that you brush and floss on a regular basis to make sure that your teeth is protected from harmful bacteria. If you brush and floss after every time you eat, you should see drastic improvements in the overall health and color of your teeth.     

2. Use Hydrogen Peroxide   
Hydrogen Peroxide is a powerful anti-bacterial chemical that is great for whitening teeth naturally and decreasing the degree of germs and bacteria present in your mouth. While this should never be used in excess, periodically using hydrogen peroxide will be great to improve the color of your teeth. 

  
3. Use Coconut Oil   
Take a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil and swirl it in your mouth for five to ten minutes every day. Also, apply some coconut oil to your toothbrush and brush. Coconut oil has properties that can take away yellow color from your teeth and make them white and beautiful again, so it is smart to regularly use coconut oil if you want white teeth.

  
4.Consume food with high calcium   
Generally, food with high calcium contents will improve the overall health of your teeth. Consume milk, other dairy products, fruits, and vegetables because all of them are healthy and beneficial for the condition of your teeth and will help in improving the color. Raw milk and yogurt should be consumed the most, but make sure you aren’t lactose intolerant. 

 
5. Avoid Coffee and Cigarettes         

Coffee and Cigarettes are the absolute worst thing you can consume if you care about the health and the whiteness of your teeth. Both products are immensely harmful to your teeth and are quite often the reason people have yellow teeth. If you are a serial coffee drinker or smoke regularly, it will be very difficult for you to ensure that your teeth become and remain white, so it is wise to quit both of those things if you care about the health of your teeth, their whiteness, and your overall appearance. 


Wrapping it Up!

At the end of the day, how to white your teeth will depend on how much care you take off them. Dental treatments can get very expensive, so it is better to take care of your teeth regularly than to pay exorbitant sums of money for unnatural treatments.
