Ways to naturally whiten your teeth


Nobody likes yellowing teeth, or the expensive dental bills that come with a brilliant new smile.  The sad truth is some people no matter how many times they brush their teeth have stained teeth from drinking coffee, tea, and smoking. First impressions matter in this world and having teeth that look like you don’t brush can and will send a signal that you don’t really care about yourself. Who doesn’t want to have a beautiful smile with sparkling teeth? The good news is here are a few secrets to naturally whiten your teeth.


  1. Brush after drinking or eating

The best way, but not always the easiest, is to simply brush your teeth after eating or drinking something. If this isn’t an option for you then you should rinse your mouth after drinking discoloring drinks such as coffee and after eating discoloring foods such as tomato sauce.


  1. Coconut Oil Pulling

Can it be true? Coconut oil to clean teeth? Just when you thought you heard it all when it comes to coconut oil, it comes to the rescue as a teeth whitener. Some people are attesting to their teeth becoming whiter by applying coconut oil to their teeth after they brush. But for most people, they are praising the results of oil pulling. Simply put a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth and swish it between your teeth for 5 to 20 minutes. Another option is to add a few drops to your toothbrush or a corner of a clean wash cloth and brush/ rub it on. Also, coconut oil has antimicrobial properties so it’s great for your gums.


  1. Apple Cider Vinegar (AVC)

It makes sense that apple cider vinegar would eventually remove stubborn stains on the teeth, especially from coffee and nicotine. It has been proven that it does work but you have to be consistent and it takes a least a month of continuous usage to see results. Be careful, as with all acids, it can remove the enamel on your teeth as well. After brushing with ACV, you will need to brush again with regular toothpaste, or rinse your mouth out really well.


  1. Strawberries

Gather some strawberries and mash them up into a paste. Apply the paste to your teeth using a soft, clean toothbrush or finger. Leave the paste on for 2 to 5 minutes. Wash off thoroughly all the strawberry paste and seeds. Brush your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste. This process should be repeated every time you brush your teeth, as it will take a few days to work.


Research has shown that both chemical and all natural whitener products can damage the teeth by removing the enamel. Bottom line all whitening products should be used in moderation. The best way to whiten teeth is by feeding your body lots of healthy foods for stronger bones, teeth and gums and omitting coffee, tea and sugary foods in your diet. If you smoke, stop smoking and brush and floss your teeth every day!
