We all love smiling fearlessly, right?

Unfortunately sometimes, improper oral hygiene, unhealthy food habits, and unhygienic product usage can turn your teeth pale yellow. And this can shake off your confidence in public. 

Top 5 DIY teeth whitening facts you should know

Baking Soda

Baking Soda is an old-fashioned trick that helps in lightening the prominent strains from your teeth. All you have to do is wet your toothbrush, put a pinch of baking soda on it, and brush gently to remove lighter stains easily. 

According to Relative Dentin abrasivity (RDA), Baking Soda ranks at 7 (0 to 269) on the dentistry scale. This shows the gentleness of baking soda. 

Oil Pulling

Make a coconut oil-infused mixture by taking equal parts of coconut oil and baking soda. You can also add food-grade essential oil for fresh breath. Brush and swish your mouth with this mixture for getting an expected teeth whitening effect. 


Fruits are another DIY Teeth whitening technique that includes lemons, strawberries, and oranges. Make a paste using baking soda and cider vinegar infused with any of these fruits. Let this paste rest on your teeth for a few minutes before rinsing off. 

Turmeric Powder

Turmeric is one of the best spices that acts as an effective tooth whitener. Therefore wet your toothbrush and dip it into a 1/8 spoon of turmeric powder. Brush your teeth with it, spit and floss for mouth clearing. You can also use this as a part of your regular toothpaste. 

Whitening Toothbrush

Whitening a Toothbrush can be a perfect aid to your teeth whitening impression. It contains carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide that will lighten up two shades and make your teeth look white and clean.

However, not all DIY teeth whitening products are safe. Few can damage the teeth enamel and erode your tooth too. Therefore it is advisable to see your professionals and seek consultation regarding using at-home teeth whitening products.
