Teeth Whitening!

Postby btifuldreamer » 28 Jan 2015 03:12

I've noticed that during my 6 week break off school my teeth have gotten noticeably more yellow than they were so lately I've been constantly researching how to whiten them. If you guys have any experiencing with whitening your teeth and you're willing to share that would be great! I have gone the more natural way of oil puling with coconut oil. I will explain what that is and the benefits of it later if any of you are interested because this post is starting to get lengthy. So any tips on how to naturally whiten teeth would be much appreciated :D

You can use coal powder, it makes your teeth become white.

Use hydrogen peroxide mixed with 1/2 water as a mouth wash. It's good for ones gums, cleans ones teeth, can be used to disinfect wounds or is even a fine toilet cleaner, also works ok as silver polish. You need to rinse for at least the slow count of 100.

Forgot to add that it's completely safe provided one is not swallowing a lot of it or putting it in your eye.

Thank you for the replies :) I have heard that hydrogen peroxide is good for the teeth. I would like to do the lemon juice on baking soda one but i can't because i have a permanent retainer and it erodes the glue. Oil pulling has been working well, i've noticed that my teeth are slightly whiter and much more glossy/shiny. I've been doing it for about 2 weeks.

I tried the oil pulling thing once but didnt have the will power to keep it up, I did it for only about 5-6 days but I think it was starting to help.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

Yeah, it's only 20 minutes but it feels like a long chore. I think it will have long term benefits so that's why i'm keeping it up. Hopefully white teeth is one of those benefits.

Has anyone ever asked themselves why unblemished teeth are important and what purpose it serves in our continuing existence?

Well, I just did! It's a very deep, existential question philosophers have debated for centuries. :ugeek:

It's to satisfy that all-important desire that plagues our psyche: 'I want to be attractive'.
White teeth is a sign of good health and vitality. White teeth attracts mates.

That's my very simple explanation.

(I want whiter teeth too, so I know what I mean) ;)

My only reason is vanity.
