Folk remedies for whitening. If they are effective?
The most well-known folk ways of teeth whitening do not work. Moreover, they are dangerous to the health of the enamel. Dental gels act on the layer located directly over hard enamel. Folk remedies do not penetrate him, but only injure the hard layer.
There is a relatively innocuous means. Others, such as baking soda, is extremely dangerous.
Sometimes the teeth become lighter after you do folk remedies. However, the effect of the same soda is brief, and after damage to the enamel plaque sticks to the teeth even faster. The result is a couple of months you will get absolutely opposite effect.
Instead of experiments, experts advise to use proven tools: toothpaste, dental floss and toothbrush with mouthwash. Regular cleaning with the traditional method two or three times a day will get rid of large particles of plaque.
Yes, hydrogen peroxide is included with gels to whiten. However, this substance in the gel is not more than 10%. Doctors warn that the pure peroxide can burn the mucous membrane of the oral cavity and cause the body great harm. Experts advise not to use the applications of lemon zest, and strawberries.
