How to Whiten Your Teeth Safely

Everyone wishes to have a perfect smile. But coffee, chocolate, and juice make the teeth look darker and regular cleaning won’t remove this layer. If you’re not planning to see a dentist any time soon, you can try to whiten your teeth safely at home.

We at 5-Minute Crafts chose 3 ways to whiten your teeth safely at home.

Way № 1: With activated carbon

What you need:

  1. 1 activated carbon pill

  2. 2 to 3 tbsp of hot water

  3. A toothbrush

What to do:

  • Crush 1 activated carbon pill into dust.

  • Mix the powder with hot water to make a paste.

  • Using a toothbrush, put the paste on the teeth and brush them as usual. After that, wash the mouth as usual and it’s done!

Way № 2: strawberry paste and baking soda

What you need:

  1. Several ripe strawberries

  2. 1 tbsp of baking soda

  3. A toothbrush

What to do:

  • Remove the top parts that contain the leaves and crush the berries into a paste.
  • Add baking soda and mix it so that you have a paste.
  • With a toothbrush, put the paste on the teeth and brush them as usual. Done!

Way № 3: with strips made of foil

What you need:

  1. 1 to 2 tbsp of toothpaste

  2. 1 tbsp of baking soda

  3. 2 strips of foil

What to do:

  • Put some baking soda into a bowl.
  • Add toothpaste and mix until you have a paste.
  • Take strips of foil and put a bit of the paste on them.
  • Fix the strips on the teeth and leave them there for 15 minutes. After that, remove the foil and wash out the mouth. Done!

Important: Any of these procedures can be done no more than 1-2 times a week in order not to damage the enamel. After the procedures, for about 1-2 hours, don’t eat any acidic foods or foods that have coloring added.

If you have enamel problems, consult with your dentist before using any of these methods.
