Do You Know What Happens When You Wrap Your Teeth In Aluminum Foil? Amazing Results!

The quest for whiter teeth has spurred a cottage industry of store-bought solutions and provided a steady stream of customers for dental services providers. Both solutions are not exactly what we could call wallet-friendly, leaving many to wish for a lower-cost alternative that also happens to be fairly simple. As shared by Providr, this DIY solution checks off both boxes, and is something you can do in the comfort of your own home to boot.

The home-based whitening solution requires just a few simple things to get started. You’ll need baking soda, toothpaste, and some aluminum foil. Simply mix together some of your regular toothpaste with baking soda, cut out some small rectangles of aluminum foil that would fit well over your top and bottom teeth, spread the mixture in the center of the foil and apply to your teeth.

They are essentially homemade whitening strips that can be worn around the house while you tend to other tasks. You can wear the strips for about an hour and use twice a week, and you should start to see noticeable results fairly quickly. Two notes of caution: be careful not to overdo it or you’ll risk harming tooth enamel, and be careful not to have the paste come in direct contact with the gums. Users can apply a little vitamin E oil to their gums before beginning for a little extra protection.
