How to Whiten Your Teeth in 7 Days

As you get older, the enamel on your teeth begins to wear away, revealing the yellow-colored dentin beneath. The yellowing of teeth is a slow and gradual process but inevitable. In addition, certain foods can stain and discolor your teeth over time. 

Dr. Lemmon at Picacho Family Dental Implant Center of Yuma, Arizona, is committed to providing quality dental care in a comfortable environment. Together with his team, he offers professional teeth whitening treatments and procedures to keep your smile healthy and bright.

  • Baking Soda

Applying baking soda paste over your teeth will help whiten them but also keep off bacteria as this paste creates an alkaline environment in your mouth. 

A recent study on toothpaste containing baking soda reported that this is an effective way of whitening your teeth at home.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a very good antiseptic agent that helps kill off bacteria in the mouth. Being a bleaching agent, it can also help whiten your teeth if used regularly. 

However, excessive doses of hydrogen peroxide can cause gum inflammation and unpleasant sensations in the mouth. The dose recommended by dentists is 1.5% to 3%.

  • Activated Charcoal

Charcoal can help eliminate stains from your teeth. You can find activated charcoal toothpaste in drugstores and supermarkets. You can also get activated charcoal capsules at the drugstore and make a mouthwash for yourself by mixing it with some water. 

  • Coconut Oil Pulling

This is a very efficient way to whiten your teeth in a week, as oil pulling is a tried and tested procedure for removing germs and plaque and brightening the teeth.

For 10 to 30 minutes, swish 1 to 2 tablespoons of liquid coconut oil in your mouth. Do not allow the oil to come into contact with the back of your throat.
