If you prefer coconut oil, take a tablespoon of coconut oil and put it in your mouth. Swish it around for 15-20 minutes. Then, brush teeth as you normally do.
Besides coconut oil pulling, we offer you several other tricks you can do at home and make your teeth whiter.
This is how you can whiten your teeth from home using ingredients that you can find in your pantry. All these recipes are very simple and very effective.
The first trick includes strawberries and baking soda. Crush the strawberries and mix them with a teaspoon of baking soda. Dab your toothbrush into the mixture and brush your teeth with it.
You should not do this more than once or twice a week.
The second trick includes apple cider vinegar and baking soda. Mix these two ingredients until you get a consistency like toothpaste. Apply it on your toothbrush and scrub away. Don’t do it too regularly because soda is acidic and can wear out the tooth enamel if you do it more than 1-2 a week.
The third trick is an olive oil mouth rinse. Fill your mouth with olive oil and swirl it around and around. It is not acidic and this treatment can be done every day. If you don’t like the taste of olive oil in your mouth, there is another option. Soak a cotton pad into the olive oil and rub it along your teeth.
The fourth trick is rubbing teeth with the inside of a banana peel. It is really effective so give it a try.
The fifth trick is similar with the previous one and includes rubbing your teeth with the inside of an orange or lemon peel.
The sixth trick is adding a pinch of table salt on your toothpaste before brushing teeth. Doing this every day really helps whiten your teeth.
The seventh tip is eating apple every day because they really clean your teeth. It is definitely a good option.
The tip number eight is to use milk in your coffee and tea. The reason for that is not just the calcium in milk, but also it reduces the capacity of coffee and tea to stain your teeth. It is a good thing to keep in mind.
Tip number nine is to decrease the intake of caffeinated things, such as tea and coffee, but also energy drinks because they include lots of sugar and caffeine and are bad for you in so many ways.
