Tooth staining is a common cosmetic issue affecting both men and women. It can be the result of some foods and beverages, such as red wine, sweets that contain abundance of artificial dyes; unhealthy habits, such as smoking, or simply genetics. Now, the market offers a plethora of commercial tooth-whitening products. But, these are both expensive and time-consuming, and what’s more, they often fail to provide the desired results.
On the other hand, you have all-natural alternatives, such as the one with apple cider vinegar, which provide amazing tooth-whitening results.
Apple cider vinegar is the byproduct of apple fermentation; it’s loaded with pectins, healthy enzymes and essential minerals. When it comes to oral health, it works on two levels – it eliminates tooth stains, whitens your teeth and destroys all mouth bacteria that cause bad breath.
