Teeth Whitening

A great white smile is what everybody want. For better or not as good as how our teeth look helps to define us. When you meet someone for the first time, having great looking white teeth does make a big difference. A great part to having pearly whites is the fact that there is no revival time besides rinsing out your mouth.

Eat 4 figs at one time, once a day. Chew well and slowly. This stimulates the saliva flow and cleanses the mouth and teeth.

  • Do not take excess tea and coffee. These beverages contain strong alkaloids which can stain the teeth.
  • Smoking also makes teeth lose the white coloration of the teeth.
  • Chewing betel leaf (paan) is done in several Indian regions. This is also disastrous to the whiteness of the teeth.
  • Include pungent, bitter and astringent foods in your daily diet. These tastes have an astringent effect on the teeth that helps to maintain them clean. They also take care of the excess buildup of plaque on the teeth, which makes them lose their pearly white color.
  • Brush your teeth after every meal, or at least in the morning and before going to bed. While brushing your teeth, take care to sweep out all the embedded food particles.
