5 ways to maintain white teeth
Keeping your smile white can be stressful, but there are a number of things you can do at home to ensure that your teeth stay as white as they can.

Activated Charcoal

Known around the world for a number of amazing properties, brushing with activated charcoal once a week helps whiten the teeth and keep them clean.

Oil Pulling

Oil pulling takes many of the impurities that are known to linger on teeth and pulls them out of your mouth. While it feels a bit gross at first, whiter teeth and better oral health are two of the known benefits.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Brushing with apple cider vinegar, alone, or with baking soda, is one of the easiest ways to whiten your teeth at home. Simply dip your brush in the vinegar before brushing.

Brushing Sticks

Used in many different countries, the sticks of some African trees can help whiten the teeth.

Citrus Peels

The use of lemon and orange peels can help whiten teeth, but should be used sparingly to avoid damaging the enamel. Always rinse after using peels and do not use this method more than twice a month.
