How Orange Peels Can Improve the Whiteness of Your Smile
Posted on 6/20/2019 by Dr. J. Derek Tieken
When people describe a great smile one of the most common words, they use is white. A good smile involves bright, white teeth. To get white teeth, people will go to almost any length.
They will seek out professional whitening procedures and spend money on products guaranteeing the desired look. They do not know they could turn to something in their refrigerator for help. Orange peels can improve the smile by helping make the teeth whiter.
What Do Oranges Have
Finding natural home remedies for different problems is not a new idea. Many of the things we have in our home contain ingredients that also do other things. In the case of orange peels to help whiten teeth, it is the vitamin C, pectin, limonene, gluconate and soluble fiber found in the white part of the orange peel that helps whiten the teeth. These compounds can act as natural teeth whiteners.
There is a reason to turn to the orange peel as a whitener. It does not contain the acid found in the orange that you eat. The acid in the orange can eat away at the enamel instead of whitening it.
How to Use an Orange Peel
It is important to follow a few steps when using an orange peel as a whitener. The first step is the orange. It is best to find oranges that were not grown with any pesticides or chemicals. Organic oranges are typically the best to use. Once you have the orange, clean the outside thoroughly before peeling. You can then run the white part of the peel on your teeth. After doing this brush and rinse your teeth.
Orange peels offer a natural alternative to teeth whitening. The results that people will get will vary and will depend on other factors, including their diet and oral hygiene habits. Whitening with an orange peel does not provide a long-lasting effect, but it can help.
