Q.

Remedy for whiter teeth.

Good Day,

I am a smoker and have been for the last 8yrs, the tartar build up is seriously a problem for me i often find my tongue scraping at it till raw i can brush my teeth 3times a day as well as use the listerine tartar build up mouth wash and nothing works. Is there some home remedy that you can advise to me? That will not include spending thousands.

Regards,

The first step is to stop smoking-this is a major contributor to calculus build up.
Have your teeth professionally cleaned and follow the oral hygiene instructions to maintain them.
