A smile is a wonderful thing, and one should certainly not feel conscious to smile and express their feelings. Teeth can look more yellow or darken especially as you age. As the outer enamel wears away, the yellowy dentin underneath becomes more visible. Dentin is the second layer of calcified tissue beneath the outside enamel layer. There are plenty of products to choose from when it comes to whitening your teeth. However, most whitening products use chemicals to bleach your teeth, which concerns many people.
If you want whiter teeth but also want to avoid the chemicals, there are plenty of natural remedies, which can be reliable, safe and most importantly cost-effective.
