DIY Homemade Natural Teeth Whitener

Though turmeric is notorious for leaving a yellow stain on almost anything and everything, it can be a great tool to naturally brighten and whiten yellow teeth. Although the exact reason as to why it works is not known, many swear by it. Try it to believe it!

Turmeric is also good for sensitive teeth and dental problems like toothaches and gingivitis, thanks to its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antibiotic properties. The medicinal properties mainly come from a component in turmeric called curcumin.

Along with turmeric, this homemade natural teeth whitener includes baking soda and coconut oil. Baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate (do not confuse with baking powder), works as a mild abrasive to remove stains from your teeth.

Plus, it facilitates plaque removal by neutralizing acids produced by the bacteria. Plaque buildup can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.

Coconut oil is another excellent ingredient for oral health. It is often used in oil pulling because it draws out bacteria and treats issues like toothaches, bad breath, tooth sensitivity and gum disease. It also helps whiten and brighten your teeth.

  1. I believe and appreciate ur infos on home remedies and i wish i cud also be a member so i can also be benefited on all ur infos a million thnx

  2. Add an equal (to turmeric) amount of finely powdered Bay-Leaf (Tej Patta) to this mixture and see the difference. You may try Sarson Oil instead of Coconut Oil too! Another magical ingredient can be powdered Wood Coal (Dry Wood soaked with Pure Ghee burnt thoroughly) at home. I am using this all in a single mixture along with a good tooth paste (Both Sparkling White from Himalaya AND Dabur Red Paste) [since these tooth paste dont make detergent like fluff and helps in thoroughly rubbing the teeth for longer time] for the last 6 months twice daily. I have seen my teeth go 5-7!!! shades lighter. Especially useful if your teeth have gone yellow because of medicines. Maintain your pH levels of both mouth and stomach alkaline (pH7+) preferably.
