6. Flossing

Flossing is as important as brushing twice a day. However, it is still not taken that seriously in India. Flossing can help remove stains that can occur between the teeth.

Flossing on a regular basis can get rid of stain over a period of time. You do not need to do this on a daily basis, but make it a routine for sure.

7. Brushing

How common is this? Brushing is probably the first thing we do after getting up from bed (well we aren’t talking about people who need bed tea first).

Enamel is something like vertical rods on the teeth. So, when brushing make sure you do not brush your teeth vigorously from side to side.

8. Use Whitening Gel

There are many whitening gels in the market that you can use for whitening teeth. Make sure it is an approved one. You can use the whitening gel for brushing as you would normally brush.

Wash off your mouth as you do after brushing. Use the gel at least once in a day. Go through the instructions before using it to stay safe and not get any side effects.

9. Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is common remedy for skin wounds and injuries. However, the antiseptic properties also make it a viable for oral health. Mixing it with water makes a great mouthwash.

You will need about 30ml of hydrogen peroxide. Drop it in your mouth and whoosh. It will form foam and this shows it is working. Wash your mouth and brush as you usually do.

10. Lime and Water

The mixture of lime and water can also help in giving a white glow to your teeth. This is a very simple method, where you will need juice of at least half a lemon and some warm water.

Rinse and gargle thoroughly. This is one of the surest ways to whiten your stained teeth. But, here is a word of caution.

Use this method only once a week. Lemon juice is strong enough to cause the enamel to erode. So, be careful.

11. Consume Hard Cheese

Hard cheese can work wonders with your dented teeth. Actually, hard cheese increases the production of saliva in the mouth.

This in turn, helps in getting rid of the bacteria that are the reason for stained teeth. You will easily see positive results with the consumption of hard cheese.

12. Visit Your Dentist

Nothing can work like a visit to your dentist. This will give you a professional advice. Moreover, if your stains are too dark – brown or yellow in color – only a pro should look into it. Schedule your appointment with your doctor.

At times, an expert hand can be more beneficial than going for remedies for oneself. With latest equipment and medicines available, a visit to the dentist can be more helpful and worthwhile.
