3 Natural Ways to Whiten Teeth at Home

Brush your teeth and leave the mixture action for about 5 minutes, then rinse your teeth thoroughly. Repeat the procedure every evening.

Applying coconut oil on your teeth will definitely give you a beautiful smile. It doesn’t whiten your teeth right away, but the lauric acid it contains, protects your teeth from the bacteria in the plaque. Moreover, it improves the health of your gums and gives your mouth a fresher breath.
Remedy: Every morning before brushing your teeth, apply a tablespoon of coconut oil and move it all around your teeth for about 15 minutes. Then, wash your mouth with water and brush your teeth normally.
