Everyone wants their teeth to be as white as possible, and it’s not always convenient to come and get a teeth whitening treatment. Between treatments, people may be seeking ways to make the teeth whitening effects last longer. Luckily, there are some natural remedies out there that can work pretty well. Today in the Parkcrest Dental Group blog, we’ll talk about some natural remedies to help whiten your teeth and keep them that way.
Brushing your teeth with baking soda is one of the oldest tried and true ways to naturally whiten your teeth. In fact, it’s even used in toothpastes. If you put one part baking soda in one part water and brush with that solution a couple times a week, you may start to notice some teeth whitening effects over time.

Oil pulling is another popular at-home teeth whitening remedy. Coconut oil is safe for your teeth, so it’s the best choice if you decide you want to try oil pulling at home. All you have to do is treat the coconut oil like mouthwash. Take a spoonful of oil, put it in your mouth with some water, and swish it around for around 5 minutes. Another option is to put a little bit of coconut oil on your toothbrush when you brush at night. Doing this on a fairly regular basis should help you see some whitening effects over time.
Eat Crunchy Vegetables
Eating crunchy vegetables like celery and carrots can actually help to clean your teeth and wash away plaque. Less plaque means healthier teeth, which means whiter teeth. Plus, they’re good for you!

Avoid Things That Stain Your Teeth
Of course, the easiest way to keep your teeth white is to avoid things that can stain your teeth. This means avoiding coffee, tea, wine, soda, and tobacco. All of these things can quickly stain teeth, and in the case of tobacco, ruin your oral health. Also, it’s a good idea to limit your sugar intake as much as possible. Sugar encourages the growth of plaque, which will not help your teeth whitening endeavors.
