Be Well Must Haves
Have you already used whitening strips, whitening brushes, and other harsh products that can really harm your teeth and gums before? Did you eventually realize that those products are a no, no?! If you leave these products behind, you can use natural ways that are better for your teeth and WILL help whiten them!
Make sure to purchase all natural extra virgin Coconut Oil in its solid element. You can replace this with mouthwash every other day for awesome whitening and cleaning results!
When you are done brushing your teeth, take a spoonful of the Coconut Oil and let it melt in your mouth. Swish around for 1-2 minutes and spit. Make sure to follow up with water - you don't need all that oil sitting around in your mouth! You can also put some of the solid oil on your toothbrush and brush your teeth as you would with toothpaste, but this time, brushing lightly over your gums too. It will immediately melt in your mouth. Follow up with swishing water and spitting out after this as well.
After you are finished brushing your teeth, if you put a little baking soda on your tooth brush with water (water first to avoid washing away the baking soda!!), you can help brighten up that smile day by day! Brush lightly, as you don't want to harm tooth enamel or your gums.
The grainy texture of the baking soda aids in getting rid of dark spots and plaque.
Drinking tea, coffee, and darker drinks through a straw:
Yes, we all know they stain our teeth! -But we cannot resist them. Well, if you use a straw versus drinking straight from the cup, you will help avoid the staining liquid from hitting and sitting on your teeth.
Make sure to let the hot drink cool down before sticking a plastic straw right into it though!!!
Rinsing with mouthwash every night:
If you can find a good brand with whitening abilities, buy it! Make sure they are also as equally in charge of preventing cavities and strengthening your enamel, and do not contain alcohol. Use your mouthwash every night to help give your teeth that extra fresh cleaning.
This also helps go the extra length to preventing cavities.
Mouthwash should be part of your daily night ritual every single night.
