Hey, Martyna here.(: Everybody dreams of having white teeth. Including me, but we ALL have some yellow in our teeth, even if you can't see it, you still have some. I am trying to reach my goal to get 'Super White Teeth'. So here are a few tips that I know, and that I'm using which are helping me.(: Enjoy, and comment. I might not be right, but these tips really do work for me and others.
1.Brush Your Teeth at Least Twice a Day
Now, we all know that we have to brush our teeth at LEAST twice a day. I brush my teeth three times a day, I also brush my teeth if I've eaten something which stains(curry, tomato sauce pasta, coffee etc.). So brushing your teeth is a MUST. I have been told that brushing three times a day is too much, but I stick to what I think is right, because I'd hate to stain my teeth or getting spinach stuck in between etc.
Everyone thinks that the higher the price, the better the quality. Let me just tell you that this is NO way is true. I have normal toothpaste that cost me about £3.00 in Boots. I know friends that use special Colgate Whitening Toothpaste but... no. Just no. You don't need whitening toothpaste, you actually WON'T see much of a difference.
Right, I'm not going to lie, but you like sort of need to floss. Now, I don't floss, and my teeth are like all right next to eachother. That probably means I have a bit of bacteria between my teeth, but everyone does, so yeah. Anyway, you don't really HAVE to floss, but it'd be good if you flossed at least once in 2 months. To be honest, I've used floss before and it didn't make much difference, but it might to you. I don't know :/
You like HAVE to use mouthwash after brushing your teeth, to be sure that you get rid of the bacteria that isn't easy to get rid of with only a toothbrush. Also, this helps give you fresh breath and helps you feel good whilst the night progresses. If you don't have Listerine Mouthwash or any other mouthwash, just go and buy some at the shops for a cheap price. But make sure you like the flavour, otherwise there'll be no point in gettig a mouthwash with a horrible flavour.
Obviously, avoid smoking, too much alcohole and ingridients which stain/damage your teeth.
6.Very Quick Banana Tutorial
This is an amazing banana whitening tip, just read the following, all you will need is a banana:
1. Brush your teeth as usual with a natural toothpaste or you can use the banana peel first and then brush. Use a ripe banana as it has the most potassium content in it. Peel from the bottom end as this is how monkeys peel their bananas and it will keep you from having all those loose threads.
2. Take a piece of the inside of the banana peel and gently rub around on your teeth for about 2 minutes. The amazing minerals in the peel like potassium, magnesium and manganese absorb into your teeth and whiten them.
3. Repeat the same procedure at night or before bedtime, to whiten teeth.Do this twice daily. Leaving the banana peel on longer is optional if you have stains that need to come off.
There are way more tips I could give you, but until next time, bye! And remember to keep your teeth clean! :)
Xoxo Martyna :)
