What Causes Teeth to Look Yellow?
There are multiple factors that cause teeth to become dull and lose their bright, white sparkle.
Certain foods can stain your enamel, which is the outermost layer of your teeth. Additionally, plaque build-up on your teeth can cause them to look yellow.
This type of discoloration can usually be treated with regular cleaning and whitening remedies.
However, sometimes teeth look yellow because the hard enamel has eroded away, revealing the dentin underneath. Dentin is a naturally yellow, bony tissue that lies underneath the enamel.
A dash of toothpaste (very small amount, like fingernail size)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp hydrogen peroxide
1/2 tsp water
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together.
Scoop up onto your toothbrush and brush for 2 minutes (this is important). Set a timer if you have to!
If you have an event coming up, do this every morning for 7 days. Afterwards, limit to only once a week and NO more than that!
If you don’t have any events, start doing this only once a week until you see desired results.
Once you’re satisfied with the results, limit to only once a month.
Why This Works:
Hydrogen peroxide is a natural and common ingredient found in many teeth whitening products and toothpastes because of its bleaching and disinfecting properties. Baking soda is a tough cleansing agent but also a natural whitener. These two ingredients mixed with toothpaste are a powerhouse which will get your teeth white in NO time!
