Everyone wants a healthy and shiny smile. This article explores several natural ways to brighten your teeth, improve your smile, and solve the problems that could destroy your oral health.
While many people spend a fortune on commercial teeth-whitening products, these products often have harmful side-effects, including:
- brittle teeth
- gum irritation
- translucent teeth
- receding gum
- oral diseases and infections
- teeth become yellow quickly
Furthermore, some teeth whiteners offer positive effects, but the effects are often short-lived. Likewise, frequent use of these products can result in severe teeth damage.
For those reasons, it’s advisable to avoid those products and use natural remedies instead.
One of the most effective natural remedies when it comes to teeth health is the wonderful, golden turmeric.
Besides being incredibly effective in teeth whitening, turmeric is also very beneficial in the treatment of several other health conditions. Unlike other anti-inflammatory medications that are effective, but cause myriad side-effects, turmeric provides positives effects for all the body organs. However, it should always be used in normal doses, lest it leads to mild nausea and diarrhea.
To incorporate turmeric in your daily diet, you can add turmeric capsules to your different dishes, drinks, and smoothies. This is also the ideal form to use it when making your natural toothpaste.
Moreover, according to a study conducted by experts from an India-based medical college, curcumin, turmeric’s main ingredient, has the potential to alleviate depression symptoms without causing any side-effects.
Here’s how to use turmeric to whiten your teeth naturally:
What you need:
- 2 capsules of turmeric powder
- A tablespoon of coconut oil
- Some peppermint oil
Make a paste by mixing the ingredients. Dip your toothbrush into the paste before brushing your teeth with it for 3-5 minutes. Afterwards, spit the paste out and rinse your mouth. Your teeth should be incredibly white after a couple of days.
