Pearly Whites Not So White?

 

You know, through the years our teeth can take a beating just like the rest of our body through just normal every day trauma.  Even trying our best to take care of them, over time, they lose that beautiful bright color that we once had as young children.  Well rest assure, there are some simple and inexpensive things we can do to enhance the appearance of our teeth, thus enhancing our smile!  It won’t even take a lot of time….just 3 minutes!

What you will need:

The juice from 1/2 of a lemon (preferably organic)
1/4 cup of baking soda (if you are preparing for Passover/Pesach, be careful that this goes out with the other Chametz)

Instructions:
Squeeze the lemon juice over your baking soda.
The mixture will begin to bubble and you should allow it to sit for a few minutes.
Use a cotton ball to place the mixture onto your teeth.
Only allow the mixture to stay on your teeth for about one minute.

After a minutes, brush your teeth as you normally would do to remove the acidic mixture.   Warning:  Do not let the mixture stay on your teeth indefinitely, it could cause erosion on your teeth.  Just remember that even natural products can have some adverse effects.

Check out the third reference on how often you should use the mixture.

I challenge you to try it and send in your before and after!  Tell how it worked (or maybe how it didn’t work) for you!
