Hypo-calcification is the scientific term for white spots on your teeth. Everybody knows that white spots on your teeth put a limitation on your smile. This condition is majorly caused by poor oral hygiene, dry mouth and loss of minerals in your teeth. Fortunately, you can visit your dentist to help you get rid of white spots on your teeth if you are able financially. Alternatively, there are various options that are cost-effective as a home remedy. Below are home remedies you can apply:

Using a lemon. Lemons contain citric acid which is the perfect way to get rid of white spots. Take a lemon juice and add a pinch of salt and rub the mixture into your teeth for two to three minutes and rinse out with water. Apart from getting rid of your white spots, it will improve the health of your gums as well as removal of bad breath.

Using vinegar is another great way.  Vinegar has acidic properties which aid in rinsing your teeth. Get started by mixing baking soda and vinegar to make a paste. Use the paste to brush your teeth for two minutes and rinse it with clean water. You are recommended to do it weekly for better results.

Turmeric is another perfect way to brighten your smile. You only need to take some turmeric powder and mix with a pinch of salt, and lemon juice to make a paste. Clean your forefinger and gently rub the paste you created onto your teeth for about two minutes and rinse your mouth with clean water.

Lastly, oil pulling is another easy way to remove spots on your teeth. This method can only apply to those who can access coconut oil. Coconut oil has lauric acid.  All you need is take the coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for about 10 minutes. Clean your mouth with warm water after spitting out coconut oil. That all you need to do to brighten your smile.
