Try oil pulling
If you are looking to get rid of toxins while gaining whiter teeth, look no further than an oil pull! This ancient healing technique is claimed to "pull" germs (responsible for bad breath, gum problems, and tooth cavities) from your mouth. It may also help by moisturising gums for improved oral health.
The method is simple. All you need to do is:
Make sure you don't swallow the oil during this process, because it can upset your stomach.
The most effective and safe oils for this whitening home remedy are coconut oil, sesame oil, and olive oil.
Brush off the stains with Baking Soda
Readily available in most kitchens, baking soda is another ingredient in many home remedies to make teeth white. It is an inexpensive and easy home remedy for teeth whitening.
To use this home remedy:
Add a few drops of water to baking soda until you form a paste.
Apply the mixture to the toothbrush bristles and brush as usual for about two minutes.
Leave for another minute before rinsing off thoroughly and patting dry with a clean towel or paper tissue.
Use activated charcoal to whiten teeth
Activated charcoal is excellent at absorbing surface stains on your teeth that are causing yellowing. To clean your teeth at home with this home remedy:
Simply wet your toothbrush and dip it into the activated charcoal.
Brush your teeth as you would with any other toothpaste for two minutes before spitting out.
Be sure to rinse well, as activated charcoal can be messy.
Do not do this home remedy more than once a week, though, because too much of the activated charcoal could potentially wear down your tooth enamel.
Use hydrogen peroxide’s bleaching effect
Hydrogen peroxide, a bleaching agent, can also be used to lighten your teeth over time. It is also an effective home remedy for removing plaque and surface stains.
To use hydrogen peroxide as a home remedy for teeth whitening:
You can do this home remedy up to twice a day, but we recommend doing it once a day only to avoid potential damage to your tooth enamel.
