Natural, inexpensive ways to whiten your teeth

LOS ANGELES

Luckily, there are natural ways to achieve a bright smile without the use of whiteners:

  • The next time you're at the produce aisle, pick up a basket of strawberries. The astringent and vitamin C work together to whiten. Either rub them on your teeth or mash them up - just make sure to brush immediately after.


  • Mix baking soda with lemon juice. Lemons are a natural bleaching agent. Apply with a cotton swab and leave on for a minute.


  • A paste of orange peel and crushed bay leaves will freshen breath and brighten your smile!
