White Teeth: Sign of Confidence

White bright teeth give you the confidence to smile without hesitation. Not only do white teeth look attractive and boost your self-confidence, but they are also a sign of good oral health.  

However, most of us lose that dazzling whiteness due to our carelessness towards oral hygiene. This carelessness can include things we don’t think twice about like consuming unhealthy food such as coffee or alcoholic beverages that end up staining teeth.

Although you can opt for a teeth-whitening treatment whenever you want, it is neither permanent nor affordable for everyone. If you're going to get a bright smile without spending a penny, it is vital to bring changes in your daily regimen.

Top Tips To Brighten Your Smile

To help you with that, we have covered some teeth whitening hacks that will get you pearly white teeth, naturally and in no time.

Keep Your Teeth Clean

No whitening teeth hack in this world will work for you if you are lazy to follow the daily regimen of flossing and brushing. Even people who are very keen about their oral hygiene get teeth stains that are hard to remove. So brushing, especially with whitening toothpaste, is the secret to a radiant smile.

Increase Your Water Intake

Dark liquids such as red wine and black coffee often leave stains on your teeth.  The color pigment of these beverages takes around 40 seconds to penetrate in teeth. However, drinking water right after drinking wine or coffee will wash away would-be stains from your teeth.

Teeth Brightening Pen

Devices like teeth-brightening pens are all thanks to dentistry advancement. Available in various tasty flavors such as mint and vanilla, these pens work wonders.

You need to apply them three times a day, allowing liquid to stay on teeth for 40 seconds, and enjoy the bright, beautiful smile.

Use Banana Peel

Easy and inexpensive, banana peel trick is undoubtedly one of the best hacks you can try to brighten your smile. You need to rub your teeth with the inside part of banana’s peel and then rinse your mouth thoroughly.
It might not show you the quick result, but you will get to see the effects after repeating the process 4-5 times.

Chew Gum with Xylitol

Gums with Xylitol decreases plaque buildup on teeth. Trident is one of those brands that contain xylitol as an ingredient, so try to keep it in your bag to whiten your teeth.

Use Baking Soda and Lemon

Baking soda contains stain-removing qualities. When mixed with lemon, the ointment can make a potent mixture that whitens your teeth and gives you a sparkling smile.

Use Blue-Based Lip Color

Need something that quickly makes your teeth look brighter and whiter?  Blue-based lip color (red, pink or plump) help you offset yellowish tones while giving your teeth an illusion of brighter and whiter teeth.

Overall, protecting your dental structure is the most important thing that you can do to brighten your smile. Try to incorporate these above-mentioned teeth whitening miracle-ideas to see the quick effects.
