Stained teeth are inevitable, especially for people who are fond of drinking pigmented drinks such as coffee, colas, wines, and teas. Cigarette smokers are also prone to teeth discoloration, as well as those who have poor dental hygiene and under medication. Unfortunately, though it might seem normal to other people, having stained teeth can affect your life big time.

Teeth are like the crowning glory of your smile. It is one of the factors that can create a nice and good impression of you towards other people. Furthermore, a clean and bright smile can also boost your confidence and self-esteem, which can overall improve your emotional health. Tainted teeth, on the other hand, can only do the opposite.

WHY DO YOU HAVE TAINTED TEETH?

Teeth whitening isn't just all about brushing your teeth regularly or rinsing it with a good mouthwash. If you have tainted teeth, the procedure to bring back its old glory will require you much more than that.

To bring back their old bright smile, most people would visit their dentist for answers, where they will undergo chairside bleaching. First, they will undergo a procedure where dentists will apply a protective gel or a rubber shield to the gums. After doing so, teeth bleaching will be done, as explained by Mouth Healthy.

Though the dentists' way to brighten your teeth is no doubt effective, it could also surely be very costly. So since the cost is huge, why not try other natural alternatives first?

Strawberries contain huge amounts of malic acid, which is a tooth-whitening agent. Given this, using this fruit to whiten your teeth can be effective, which will leave you only with beautiful and sparkling teeth in no time.

To create your natural whitening toothpaste, what you just have to do is to crush about five strawberries and mix it with baking soda. Mix well. Using your toothbrush, apply the mixture to your teeth. Wait for about 5 minutes before brushing it to remove the stain-producing particles from your mouth.
