How can I get a whiter smile?
Three common household ingredients you’ll need:
- Baking soda
- Coconut oil
- Hydrogen peroxide
How these ingredients work to give you a whiter smile:
Baking Soda is a mild abrasive substance that is effective in removing surface stains on teeth. It is a highly soluble substance which enables it to seep into the small crevices in teeth. Unlike baking powder, baking soda is a base so it does not contain acid. Acids cause enamel erosion, so avoiding direct contact is ideal.
How to make the natural tooth whitening paste:
- 2 tablespoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon Coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide
