9 Ways to Make Your Teeth White and Bright!

Asian girls believe that "A white complexion is powerful enough to hide seven faults.” Whitening is not limited to skin tone but also your teeth. A bright, white set of teeth plus vivid bright lip color always make a bold statement to your look. Aside from deep cleaning of your pearlies, I bet many of you have heard of other teeth whitening methods like Oil Pulling, Whitening Toothpaste, Whitening Strips or Cold Light LED Teeth Whitening etc. If you want a killer smile, scroll down for the PRO-tips, then you can get a wow-worthy smile in no time!

Method 1: Use electric toothbrush

According to an article published on 《Cochrane Library》in 2014, “ There was an 11% reduction in plaque and a 6% reduction in gingivitis after using an electric toothbrush for 1-3 months.” On top of that, the spokesperson of the American Dental Association Maria Lopez Howell suggested that people having rheumatism, arthritis, osteoporosis and the elderly should choose an electric toothbrush because it would not damage the hand joints.

Electric toothbrush normally has a more powerful cleaning effect than a manual one. As its high vibration frequency helps remove the grimes on teeth and plaque to prevent the formation of calculus. Plus, most of them are featured with timers to ensure the teeth process costs only 2min - the best period of time. Thus, using an electric toothbrush is a better way to keep your teeth clean whilst maintaining oral health. 

I have been using an electric toothbrush for years too. Recently, I discovered that not only did Zenyum provide straightening teeth service but also provided an electric toothbrush with 33,000 times vibration per minute. That will create microbubbles and fine pressure waves to precisely clean the interdental and gums. Bonus is its 3 modes - the whitening mode is designed with a specific vibration to specialise on wiping off stains and so achieve whiter teeth.



Method 2: Use toothpaste with activated carbon

Toothpaste with activated carbon is the sidekick of an electric toothbrush to keep your teeth white at all times - it is due to the natural cleaning principle of activated carbon. It can absorb the color-changing particles to make your teeth look whiter and brighter. This method is so convenient and suitable for busy bees as you just need to change a new toothpaste and throw away the old one in your bathroom! 

CURAPROX BLACK IS WHITE Whitening Toothpaste is featured with activated carbon technology for whitening your teeth while the Hydroxylapatite covers your teeth as a shining shield to make your pearlies look shinier.

Another BE YOU Toothpaste from the same brand is curated with 6 scents. The upgraded herbal formula soothes gum and promotes its production whilst the whitening ingredients such as Glucose Oxidase will transform glucose to oxygen, so as to make your teeth look whiter.


Method 3: Use whitening strips

When it comes to an efficient way for teeth whitening, many people will immediately think of whitening strips, because it is so convenient, effective and efficient. It contains chemical whitening agents which will oxidize when in contact with the teeth, reduce the pigment and so get brighter teeth. However, remember to use and choose the suitable whitening strips, because a wrong way to use may cause an opposite effect, making the teeth more sensitive and fragile!

Method 4: Cold Light LED from dentist

Cold light whitening is one of the most effective teeth whitening methods acknowledged by dentists, and the cost is higher among the others. It can penetrate the active agent into tooth tissue and decompose the accumulated pigment on teeth. The result can last for half to a year, and is so obvious yet effective. However, this method may have a chance to damage your teeth, so be sure to consult your dentist before trying cold light whitening treatments.

Method 5: Oil pulling with coconut oil

The oral care method of using coconut oil as “mouthwash” is called "Oil Pulling". Both Gwyneth Paltrow and Hyun A have shared the benefits of Oil Pulling on their personal social media platforms before, not to mention the two Hong Kong singing queens - Sammi and Joey are the followers! In addition to teeth whitening, Oil Pulling can also enhance personal immunity - best practice amidst the pandemic.

Oil Pulling is to swish coconut oil in the mouth for 10 to 20 minutes and then spit it out to remove stains, bad breath whilst maintaining oral hygiene. I recommend you to choose organic or cold-pressed virgin coconut oil because it contains less impurities and so you won't swallow extra impurities and bacteria in your body accidentally. Oil Pulling is also very time-sensitive. If you want to maximize its effectiveness, you should swish it in the morning with an empty stomach, prior to drinking water or brushing your teeth, and maintain it for a week. After a week, you will see the results - magic!

Produced in Thailand, the HEAVEN Oil Pulling Mouthwash contains food grade peppermint that feels refreshing and comfortable, whilst detoxifying your body and improving many chronic diseases. Above that all, it serves up removing plaque and stains, reducing tartar formation, and whitening teeth.



Method 6: Use mouthwash after meals


Mouthwashes work in a variety of ways, including preventing tooth decay, reducing plaque, reducing inflammation of the gums or soothing sensitive teeth, and some even help whitening your teeth. You can choose the mouthwash that suits your needs. Some food residues may stick to your teeth or interdentals after meals, so if you rinse your mouth immediately after eating, you can spit out the food residues to reduce bacteria growth.

Most of the big-brand mouthwashes are formulated with lots of chemical ingredients, which may cause discoloration or paralysis of the tongue, so I suggest you choose the natural and organic SOSORO Natural Oral Rinse. It protects your teeth with 100% natural herbal ingredients and is chemical-free, suitable for your whole family.


Method 7: Use dental floss

To achieve a set of white teeth, you should first maintain your teeth and gums healthy. The Department of Health recommends that you should go to the dentist for teeth cleaning once or twice a year. Result? You always feel your pearlies cleaner after cleaning. Dental floss can remove the plaque between the interdental to ensure that food residues are not left in the hidden parts whilst it can also remove tartar and stains.

Zenyum Fresh Floss Picks is formulated with charcoal mint flavor. It works to prevent the formation of plaque, and effectively clean the teeth whilst taking care of the gums!


Method 8: Use interdental brush

Aside from dental beat, the interdental brush is the key to keep oral health because gums are very sensitive and fragile, and toothbrushing is difficult to brush them, so the interdental brush becomes so paramount. If your teeth bleed when you brush, you may already have mild periodontal disease. You need to go to the dentist to clean your teeth first and use professional equipment to wipe away the calculus, then use the interdental brush regularly to maintain oral health. The Swiss brand Curaprox's CS PRIME Interdental Brushes are made with patented cural® surgical wire, its thin and slender brush head will not cause injury to your gums, best fit for allergy-sufferers!


Method 9: Use soft-bristle toothbrush 

If you have damaged tooth enamel or gums, it is recommended to use a toothbrush with soft bristles, as hard bristles may cause oral injury that can damage your enamel and gums continuously. In general, dentists recommend us to use soft bristles, but if your mouth is severely hurt already, your dentist will recommend you to use a toothbrush with extra soft bristles.

If you want to restore your teeth health, you should use the “Hermes in Toothbrush Industry” - CURAPROX Velvet Toothbrush. It is a highly recommended brand among the professional dentists in Europe and the United States. It can thoroughly clean every corner of the teeth to guarantee no food residues remain in them, leaving them healthy and white. Moreover, this Swiss brand is such a stylish trend-setter, their stunning color combinations instantly level up your bathroom in no time!
