A dentist’s chair is dreaded by all of us and we also want to have white teeth. So, what do we do? Well, we turn to some natural remedies that whiten your teeth without harming them!

The following kitchen ingredients will leave you with naturally white teeth without harming your gums.

Coconut Oil

You must have heard about oil pulling?

Here’s what the deal is all about. Just take a tea spoon of coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for 5-10 minutes. The oil helps in removing build up of mild plaque as well as gives your gum a pink colour which in turn make your teeth look whiter.

Doing this once every week is a good idea.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Although the results of Apple Cider Vinegar are slow, but they’re worth the wait. Apple Cider Vinegar requires you to be consistent with its use and you will start seeing results in about a month’s time. Just apply it to your teeth daily. Afterwards, rinse your mouth and brush your teeth as you normally would and rinse your mouth again.

Don’t leave the vinegar in touch with your teeth for too long because the acid in it could actually harm your natural enamel.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is an excellent source of teeth whitening. Just add some to your toothpaste and brush as you normally would or if you think your stains are too set, mix it with some hydrogen peroxide and use that on your teeth for cleaning.

Although, you have to be super careful with it because too much can be abrasive and damage your teeth. Use it maybe once every 2 or 3 weeks.
