Popular home teeth whitening remedies for a Solihull Wedding probably aren’t top of your list when it comes to that groom or bridal checklist, so here are a number of ways which you can apply to those pearls without spending too much time or money.

Strawberries

Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones swears that strawberries are the key to brightening those teeth revealing some beauty tips during an interview with Be youthful.net in August 2013. she said “ I love to eat an apple after a meal, just to cleanse my teeth – they always look polished afterwards. If there aren’t any apples in the fruit bowl, a strawberry will suffice. The juice or pulp of strawberries contains malic acid which serves as an astringent and can lighten surface stains. Pineapples work the same way.”

Don’t expect to see instant results because it will take a few days until you start to see the benefits.

Apples

Did you know that you can whiten your teeth by crunching on an apple? If you start eating an apple a day as a between-meal snack and don’t get the chance to brush your teeth afterwards, make sure you drink a glass of water to rinse away the sugar, acid, and any plaque it may have removed from your  enamel. Remember that this shouldn’t be used a substitute for brushing and flossing.

Baking Soda

Baking Soda is one of the most popular options for whitening your teeth at home however, be careful because the abrasive can damage your tooth enamel. If you use this method try and mixing it with water to form a smooth paste. Don’t brush your teeth for any longer than two minutes, as baking soda is a mild abrasive and may begin to erode the enamel on your teeth.

You should repeat the process of brushing your teeth with baking soda every other day for one or two weeks. You will notice a slight difference in the whiteness of your teeth after just a few days, and a substantial difference after a couple of weeks

Home teeth whitening kits

This option is starting to become more popular with kits available from online retailers like Amazon from as little as £8.45. Dentists are also offering the option where you can have a tray made up for you at the practice and take it home to whiten your teeth at your leisure.

Teeth whitening strips

Teeth whitening strips are a method which is convenient, easy to use, and affordable. They deliver a bleaching effect to teeth in a much safer and less painful way than other methods. Although many dentists claim that over the counter products are safe to use If applied incorrectly or pushed into the gums, extreme sensitivity and soreness may result. Using the strips too often and for too long also can damage tooth enamel and lead to underlying tissue damage below the gums.
