I want whiter teeth - September 9th 2014, 05:28 PM

My teeth are just naturally a yellow-ish colour, I brush them twice a day (when I wake up and before I go to sleep), I don't drink very much pop and I genuinely take care of them. I've always had yellow teeth :/ They don't really look "dirty" but they don't look very good.

I don't want to go and have them bleached or anything as it will weaken them. What could I do to whiten them naturally?

Hi Ceilidh,

Do you drink much tea or coffee? They are notorious for staining teeth, so if you do, try to cut down. There are also toothpastes that claim to whiten them as well as cleaning them (I use aquafresh active and that seems to make them a bit whiter).

I agree with Holly with the special tooth paste. I use a tooth paste for sensitive teeth. There's also a toothbrush (I believe it's Colgate) and the handle comes apart and there's whitening gel that you apply twice a day and let dry.

A little but not a lot. I only really have tea if my parents are making some and if they ask me if I want any Mine tastes like crap. I mostly drink water, juice and milk.

I mostly use whatever's on offer toothpaste wise. I'll give the aquafresh/colgate one a go thanks both.

Drinking coffee or tea often can be the cause for yellowish teeth. I've heard somewhere that using Listerine mouth wash can reduce the degree of yellowish teeth. I was doing a little bit of research online and came across this link of how to whiten teeth naturally. Here is the link and I'd recommend checking it out. Hope this helps.

An old trick that works: baking soda. It tastes icky, but you put a tiny bit on your toothbrush and then just brush your teeth like you've never brushed before. Let it stay on your teeth about 10 minutes (I usually brush the whole time so it gets all over all my teeth). Rinse, and repeat the trick maybe once or twice a week. You should see some results pretty quickly. I learned the trick from my grandma back in middle school, it's always worked pretty well. I don't use it often, though. It does have an icky taste if it gets on your tongue.

There's also a great article here on using baking soda to whiten your teeth that gives more information.
