Tricks for Whitening Your Teeth . . . Naturally {Be Wedding White in a Week}

I'm thrilled to welcome Dr. Koroush Maddahi to my blog today with his "all natural" teeth whitening tips. Getting your teeth whitened or fixed before the wedding might be the last thing on a bride or groom’s to-do list, but it might be the first thing they regret not doing. If you don't have the time or budget to visit a cosmetic dentist, you might want to try Dr. Koroush Maddahi's "Wedding White in a Week" tips:

1. Let nature be your toothbrush: Consistently eating crunchy fruits and veggies like apples, carrots, or  broccoli is  great for removing plaque and even lifting stains from teeth.

2. Go bananas: Rub the inside of a banana peel against your teeth for a couple of minutes a day. Over time your teeth will  soak up the minerals, keeping them strong, white and looking their best.

3. Oil Pulling: Plaque tends to build up at the base of the teeth where toothbrushes have a hard time reaching. Olive oil,  due to its viscosity, is good at getting plaque in these hard to reach areas. Try swishing with it for 20 minutes every morning for optimal oral health. {and, yes, 20 minutes is correct - I asked.} Here's Dr. Maddahi's response: "It's actually a relatively new trend called "oil pulling" that stems from an ancient ayurvedic method. The plaque on our teeth isn't water soluble, it's fat soluble, so swishing with olive oil helps to effectively remove plaque even from underneath the gums because of its viscosity. Unfortunately, that thickness also makes it much slower than other tooth cleaning and whitening methods." So experts like Dr. Maddahi suggest that it be done for about 20 minutes a morning.

4. Strawberries and Baking Soda: Grind up a strawberry and mix it with some baking soda. The malic acid in strawberries is great for removing stains, while the baking soda penetrates enamel to effectively whiten your teeth. Gently rub it  on your teeth and leave it for about five minutes, then brush it off for a brighter smile.

With these simple tips, any bride and groom can effectively whiten their teeth at-home so they look their very best on their special day.

A special thank you Dr. Maddahi for joining my blog today and sharing your all-natural teeth whitening tips.
