Thanks to all the foods and cold drinks we consume on a daily basis our teeth tend to lose their pearly whiteness and become yellow.

Here is how you can whiten your teeth at home

You will need…

-Several teaspoons of baking soda - Baking Soda also known as Sodium bicarbonate is mildly abrasive; gently scrubbing away surface stains to return teeth to a whiter shade.

-Enough lemon juice or water to form a paste

-A toothbrush

Directions

Mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply.

Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes.
