We all want our teeth to look pearly white and to have a great smile. In this article we are going to talk about a natural, safe and efficient way to whiten your teeth and get the smile that you are dreaming of. Many people spend great sums of money on tooth whitening products, and many of those products do not even work. On top of that, they come with numerous risk such as:
- Oral infections
- Teeth becoming translucent
- Brittle teeth
- Gum irritation
- Gum receding
- The teeth will become yellow much faster than before
This means that despite having some short-term effects, they can cause some pretty serious health issues.
Turmeric belongs to the group of the most beneficial superfoods out there. Despite being yellow in color, it will whiten your teeth with greater efficiency than those commercial treatments.
How to use it?
You can use this spice by either mixing it with some water or you can prepare this mixture:
- ½ to 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
- One tablespoon of coconut oil
- Little peppermint oil
Dip the toothbrush in water and then dip it in the previously prepared paste. After that brush your teeth as you usually do and leave the paste to act for three to five minutes. Then spit the paste and rinse your mouth with water. Repeat this process every day for 7 days, and the results will be truly amazing.
