We all know that the importance of the teeth cannot be over-emphasized. Having a healthy mouth with sparkling white teeth is an indication of how well-groomed you are and it goes a long way in polishing your appearance and overall confidence.

Your 36 teeth, are one of the first things people notice when you talk to them and having a great smile to flash around, definitely does wonders to your general charm.

The things we consume daily, however, tends to dent the pearly white colors of our teeth, and even though you cannot stop yourself from drinking, eating, smoking etc, there are a few ways you can rejuvenate your teeth without spending loads on your dentist.

Here are a few things from your kitchen, that will preserve that dazzling smile:

Baking soda: It’s not known as the universal cleanser for nothing. Add a little baking soda to your toothbrush and brush like you normally would.

Apple cider vinegar: Either gargle or dip your toothbrush in apple cider vinegar and then brush your teeth, for the perfect toothy grin.

Peroxide: It’s always used for cleaning as it kills germs. Teeth get discoloured because of the natural colourants in the food we have and also because of the bacteria and germs living on our teeth. After brushing, rinse your mouth with peroxide. It freshens and cleanses while whitening teeth.

Celery: It is mostly made of water and has very little colour of its own. Chewing on celery, will dislodge plaque that has settled on your teeth, while cleaning the space between the teeth by removing food and germs.
