With time it becomes hard to maintain a white set of teeth no matter how many times you brush your teeth. Unfortunately, brushing your teeth will not make them whiter (unless you have not brushed your teeth for days). Moreover, whitening your teeth in a dental clinic can be very expensive and even if you opt to do the whitening procedures at home, it might still be quite pricey.


Nevertheless, some natural and easy solutions exist.

MSH China has decided to cover the seven best natural ways to whiten your teeth at the comfort of your own home.

Most type of teeth discoloration fall into two categories, extrinsic stains and intrinsic stains.

Extrinsic stains affect the outside of the enamel which is the hard outermost surrounding area of teeth. These stains are typically easily removed or corrected at home or in a dental clinic. Generally the results from consumption of foods and drinks which contain pigments such as coffee, tea but also smoking. 

Intrinsic stains occurs on the inside of the tooth, called the dentin. This type of teeth yellowing is harder to remove since it affects the whole tooth.

Number of other factors can also influence the color of your teeth. Research has shown that there are people who are born with a natural tendency to have tooth discoloration while others maintain the whiteness of their teeth a lot easier. This case is called dentinogenesis imperfecta and amelogenesis imperfecta.

The outside layer of your teeth naturally thins out with time exposing the inner part of your tooth as you get older.

The color of your teeth could be a representation of your health. It’s easy to develop discoloration when you’re ill especially if you’re going through tough medication treatment.

The color of your teeth could be affected by teeth trauma if you’ve suffered an injury. An injured tooth that has a crack or one that split will develop discoloration a lot quicker than a healthy tooth.
