Let’s face it: there’s only so much time in a day. When your days consist of constant running around, work or school, it can be hard to keep your smile white.
Who would want to be seen brushing their teeth at the gym or in the public bathroom at work? It’s not only embarrassing but ineffective.
Your teeth need some TLC more than what brushing alone can do. But when time is short, how can you achieve a beautiful smile?
We’ll take you through a few ways to brighten your smile quickly, even on the go. Ready to find out what they are?
Let’s get into it!
Incorporate Baking Soda
No, we aren’t baking a cake over here. However, while whitening toothpaste doesn’t cut it for a beautiful smile, baking soda can help.
Since it’s already an ingredient in most kinds of toothpaste, there’s not enough of this good stuff. Baking soda is a mild abrasive with great whitening properties. When used correctly, it helps get rid of those stains that seem impossible to treat.
We all love coffee, right? Ths indulgence is often the cause of yellow teeth. Baking soda on its own won’t be as effective but when you add it to your regular toothpaste, you can expect to see fast results.
Most of us already have this in our pantry but if not, it’s inexpensive. Plus, it’ll save you money at the dentist’s office thanks to its bacteria-reducing abilities.
Or, next time you’re shopping for toothpaste, be sure to pick up one that has a high concentration of baking soda in it. Most do but the potent ones will be the natural options.
While results won’t happen overnight, it’s a good habit to get into. Even though your days don’t allow for intense brushing, baking soda will help increase the whiteness of your teeth and keep them healthy. It’s doing all the hard work for you but quickly.
Oil Pull Your Way to a Beautiful Smile
A traditional remedy used for centuries may just be the key to achieving a beautiful smile. While the name sounds weird, it can help the appearance of your teeth and kill bacteria.
When bacteria isn’t removed from the mouth, it can multiply and develop into plaque. This not only causes teeth to look yellow but it can also be the root of other health problems.
The point of oil pulling is to treat your teeth using a natural method. Other techniques can involve harsh ingredients which will wear away at your enamel. With that said, what’s the best oil to use?
The answer would be coconut oil. Not only known for its pleasant taste but for its main ingredient: lauric acid.
Lauric acid is known for reducing inflammation and effectively killing bacteria. Brushing your teeth can only do so much but what about your gums?
This is why oil pulling has become a hot trend for getting a beautiful smile. It not only helps with whitening teeth but it can tend to the gums as well.
Gums harbor a lot of bacteria that can seep down into teeth. When not treated, you can develop gum disease.
Oil pulling takes care of that by loading your mouth with coconut oil then moving it in a push and pull motion. It goes in between teeth while also getting into the tough spots on the gums.
Since this method doesn’t expose your teeth or gums to harsh ingredients, it’s okay to do this daily. When you do, it’ll reduce the appearance of yellow stains while also keeping plaque to a minimum.
After you’ve “pulled” the oil for about 20 minutes, spit it out into a trash can. Coconut oil solidifies at room temperature and if you put it down the drain, it can clog it.
Eat More Fruits and Veggies
While this may seem like common sense, some fruits and vegetables have the ability to reduce plaque, thus improving the look of your teeth. Who knew eating healthy could benefit your body and teeth?
For a beautiful smile, consuming raw vegetables such as peppers and celery rub away at that nasty plaque as you chew. Their hard exterior work like a toothbrush.
Fruits, on the other hand, strawberries, and pineapple work best. Thanks to celebrities, they sparked a new trend where mixing strawberries and baking soda can help clean your teeth.
Strawberries are known for having malic acid in them, making it ideal for treating strained teeth. That type of acid will remove the look of surface stains.
When paired with baking soda, the two work together to clean and scrub away stains and plaque. Just be sure to limit its amount of uses.
Using this method too much can wear away the enamel. Limit the strawberry and baking soda mixture to at least once a week. If not, it can cause some serious damage.
This technique is great for on the go because you can eat fruits and vegetables practically anywhere. It won’t raise any eyebrows or judged looks.
Use a LED Whitening Kit

Prevent Stains Before They Happen
While it may seem unorthodox, being mindful of what you eat and drink can be the difference between yellow teeth and a beautiful smile. Deciding on what kinds of foods to include in your diet is important but some of them could be the reason of your yellow-tinted teeth.
Most foods cause surface stains which can be easy to treat but are a pain to deal with when they develop. While we aren’t recommending you nix these foods completely but rather consume them in limited amounts to help reduce stains.
Ready to see if your favorites are one of them? Here’s the list of food and drinks that contribute to unsightly stains:
- Red and white wine
- Green and black tea
- Barbeque sauce
- Marinara sauce
- Balsamic vinegar
If you can’t forgo that glass of red wine or drizzle of balsamic vinegar, rinse your mouth out with water after 30 minutes of eating or drinking. You’ll catch the stains before they have a chance to settle in.
You don’t want to brush your teeth right away because then you’re allowing the acids to penetrate the teeth. Rather than washing it away, you’ll be scrubbing it right into the crevices of your teeth. It’s best to rinse with water to reduce the chances of stains developing.
Getting a beautiful smile shouldn’t include costly dentist appointments or crazy methods. The techniques listed above are intended to be used on the go or when you’re strapped for time.
Everyone deserves a glowing, healthy smile. Because when you know your teeth look good, it transforms the way you feel. You aren’t afraid to smile, laugh, or talk because you have no problem showing off your pearly whites.
And just think of all the compliments that’ll come your way! The best compliment a person can receive is one about their teeth.
