You’d Never Guess That These Two Ingredients Together Can Whiten Your Teeth!

There’s nothing more attractive than a great smile. Flash one to a stranger and it can change their day. Smile at a cute guy or girl and it’s one of the best ways to catch their eye. But just as surely as a great smile can enhance your looks, a bad one can ruin them. Yellowing teeth and bad breath can be a turnoff to just about anyone you encounter and it will have people looking away instead of catching their eye. So If you’re teeth aren’t up to snuff, how do you go about fixing them? Well, it’s actually pretty simple but the ingredients you’ll use might have you second guessing. Don’t worry, they work… and work well!

What You’ll Need

To get you on the way to a bright white smile, you’ll need just two ingredients:
  • Coconut Oil
  • Turmeric

Combined together, they form a paste, much like your regular toothpaste. In fact, if you wish to make it even more similar to toothpaste, you can even add in a few drops of peppermint oil. It will not only whiten your teeth, but leave your breath minty fresh.

How Does It Work?

If you were shocked to read that one of only two ingredients to whiten your teeth is turmeric, you’re not alone. Turmeric is a notoriously stubborn spice. Bright yellow in colour, even getting a little bit of it on clothing or certain surfaces, like plastic or wood, can stain them permanently. So you would probably think it would stain your teeth yellow, too, right? Actually, turmeric does the opposite.
Teeth are not perfectly smooth. If you were to look at your own teeth through a microscope, you’d see that they’re porous and have an uneven texture. Because they’re so fine, however, it doesn’t feel that way if you ran your tongue over them. It’s this texture, though, that causes stains.
