Many people want whiter teeth but don't want to spend the money for professional whitening kits or a trip to a dental health professional. While these are the most effective ways to get a brighter smile, there are alternative methods that have been shown to potentially help people whiten their teeth.
Recently, Dental Health magazine published an article that suggested that people brush with a mixture consisting of white vinegar, baking soda and a pinch of salt to get whiter teeth. However, once individuals have obtained the desired results, they should stop using this mixture, since it may damage tooth enamel.
Women's Health magazine spoke to Jeff Golub-Evans, D.D.S., a cosmetic dentist in New York City, who said that there are even foods that can whiten teeth.
"Foods that are high in cellulose - a strong starch-like compound found in celery, carrots and apples - act as natural abrasives, cleansing teeth and removing surface stains naturally," Golub-Evans told the magazine.
These may be cost-effective ways to get whiter teeth.
