10 amazing teeth whitening natural remedies!

Not happy with your smile? Are your teeth stained, yellow or covered in tartar? Check out these 10 amazing natural remedies that can help you whiten your teeth:

  1. Baking soda is perhaps the most widely used home remedy for teeth whitening and the reason for that is because it actually works. Mix it with a few drops of water so that you get a toothpaste-looking mixture and simply brush your teeth with it. Make sure you don’t use this method more than once a week because although it is efficient it can damage your teeth’s enamel if used in excess.
  2. Sage has also been proven efficient in keeping a healthy oral hygiene. It removes the stains of the surface of the teeth and also has an antibacterial effect. Simply get a sage leaf and brush your teeth with it. Don’t use it more than twice a week because, such as baking soda, due to its abrasive properties it can increase your teeth’s sensibility and damage the enamel.
  3. Clay and lemon juice used once a month makes all the difference in the world. You can use clay on its own once a week. Mix one tablespoon of clay with a few drops of water and gently brush your teeth with the mixture for 4 minutes. Rinse well.
  4. Hydrogen peroxide is not just for hair. You can successfully use it to whiten your teeth, as well. For this method, you need a 3% bottle of hydrogen peroxide which you can find at pharmacies, and a cotton pad which you use to wipe your teeth. You can also combine it with baking soda or clay for even more surprising results. Make sure you do not ingest it.
  5. The malic acid found in strawberries or apples is also helpful in teeth whitening. You can eat them often or you can make toothpaste out of them. Crush 2-3 strawberries and apply them on your teeth. Leave to act for a couple of minutes before rinsing.
  6. Lemon juice, on its own, is a wonderful teeth whitening remedy. It is especially helpful to remove nicotine stains on the surface of your teeth. You can use the juice of a lemon, or you can rub your teeth with lemon peel.
  7. Celery and carrots are also helpful in removing dental stains. Plus, they freshen the breath by killing the bacteria responsible for bad breath.
  8. Raisins stimulate the production of saliva thus removing plaque. Include them in your diet or eat them as a snack.
  9. Mix 1 teaspoon of clay with a pinch of baking soda, dry sage or a couple of drops of sage essential oil and 1 drop of peppermint essential oil and you got yourself a homemade natural teeth whitening toothpaste.
  10. Ash contains potassium hydroxide which efficiently removes dental stains. Make sure you rinse well after using it to scrub your teeth.
