Im curious if there is a more paleo approach to whitening your teeth? The store bought whiteners cause my inner cheek skin to peel. I imagine this isn't good.
i know this is an old post, but maybe i can save a couple of folks from gross chemicals and tons of money --
ok, it sounds super crazy and the info you find will be wacky, but "oil-pulling" i.e. swishing oil around in your mouth for about 15-30 min daily - ACTUALLY WHITENED MY TEETH. no joke. i saw results like 5 days in and stopped after 12. google it.
This dentist maintains that baking soda will eventually causer gum recession http://askdrellie.blogspot.com/search?q=baking+soda+gums
She advocates minimally invasive dentistry and if Paleo isn't enough to resolve any dental issues you may have, her blog is well worth a look. She feels that cares, the disease that causes cavities, can have a contagious component. This could be important for the Paleo in a household with non paleos
I have been using a dry mixture of one part sea salt to three parts baking soda.
moisten brush, dip into dry mixture, and brush normally.
Leaves you crisp and clean, with no residue. This has markedly whitened my teeth, too.
I've been doing this for about 9 months and I love it.
I combine 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide with 1 part water and swish it around in my mouth for about a minute before I brush my teeth in the morning and evening. Works quite well — my teeth were significantly whiter within a week of regular use. Be sure not to swallow the hydrogen peroxide, though! I also like Weleda Ratanhia Mouthwash Concentrate and use that after I brush — it's around $6 on vitacost.com and it's so concentrated that one bottle will last you six months. Healthy gums help your teeth look whiter, too!
I am using a Teeth Whitener in Malaysia , Bright Smile. It contains 44% Carbamide Peroxide. Do check the content of your product. Maybe you should consider switching to a peroxide based whitener. The one I currently use is pretty decent with decent result. The only downfall is my tooth became slightly sensitive after treatment which is quite frustrating especially when I eat.
