There’s no denying that white teeth are something that most people would like. Not only are they on trend, but whiter, brighter teeth help a person look younger, as well as gives them confidence in their smile and their appearance. If you’re a smoker, a lover of coffee or red wine however you may notice that your teeth are less brilliant white and more grubby gnashers. There are things you can do however to restore that.
There are several different natural at home remedies to restore white teeth. Even if some of them may be overrated, they can be fun!
- Oil pulling with coconut oil. (To oil pull, put 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth and push and pull the oil through your teeth. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, so you may need to wait a few seconds for it to melt. Continue the oil pulling for a full 15–20 minutes, spit out and rinse. )
- Brushing With Baking soda. Baking soda is a mild abrasive that can help scrub away surface stains on teeth. You can also use it to clean your bathroom, so you know, multi tasking and all that.
- Rubbing A Strawberry Across Your Teeth. Cut a strawberry up and use the flesh to rub against your teeth. I mean, I don’t know if this will work but strawberries are tasty so no harm done here huh. Just make sure you don’t do it too much, or all the time, fruit acid can be bad for healthy teeth.

If you don’t fancy rubbing fruit around your teeth or swishing oil around your mouth, there are more reputable products and ways to get your teeth looking gleaming. From whitening toothpastes to charcoal powder and even LED lighting you can use at home, there’s so many things you can do. I personally love teeth whitening strips, particularly when you’re sat in front of the TV with a facemask on. The perfect chilled evening! Keep an eye out as I will have several reviews going out in the next few weeks!
