How To Have White Teeth Naturally At Home (Works 100%)!


According to statistics, in 2015, Americans spent more than 11 billion dollars on teeth whitening as well as additional 1.4 billion dollars on at-home whitening products. When it comes to teeth whitening, there is a vast variety of products that we can choose from. Unfortunately, over-the-counter teeth whitening products contain harmful chemicals.

Yellowish Teeth

Yellow teeth can be caused by numerous reasons. For example, specific foods can stain the enamel, i.e. the outer layer of the teeth. Also, build up of plaque increases the risk of the teeth going yellow. Often, the teeth can become yellow if the hard enamel has eroded away and the dentin underneath is revealed. Dentin is a naturally yellow and bony tissue which is located underneath the enamel.

How to Whiten the Teeth without Being Exposed to Chemicals

Oil pulling

This traditional Indian folk remedy has been used to better oral hygiene and to remove toxins from the body. Oil pulling is swishing oil in the mouth cavity with the aim to get rid of bacteria which increases the risk of plaque and yellow teeth. Traditionally, Indians used sunflower or sesame oil; however, any other oil will work. For example, coconut oil which has a pleasant taste and it’s rich in different health benefits. It has lauric acid which can lower inflammation and destroy bacteria. According to a recent study, daily swishing with sesame oil lowered one of the primary types of bacteria in the mouth that cause plaque and gingivitis within a week.

Lack of Studies

Unfortunately, there are no scientific studies that can prove the whitening effect of oil pulling on the teeth. Nevertheless, this method is harmless and worth the try.

How to Do It

Put a tbsp of coconut oil in the mouth and swish it throughout the mouth cavity for 15 to 20 minutes. Then, spit it into the toilet or a trashcan since it could go back to solid form in the drain pipes and cause a clog. This method doesn’t expose the teeth to acid or other eroding ingredients.

Fruits and veggies

With certainty, they’re not a substitute for regular teeth brushing; raw fruits and veggies can help you rub away plaque as you chew them. Pineapple and strawberries are considered to be the most effective fruits for teeth whitening.

A mixture of baking soda and strawberries will remove teeth discoloration and any remaining stains. Make sure to limit the use of this remedy to several times per week. Just smash a fresh strawberry and mix it with half a tsp of baking soda and brush the teeth with the mixture.

According to a study, toothpaste with bromelain, an enzyme in pineapples, was more beneficial in eliminating stains on the teeth than regular toothpaste.

Brushing and flossing

Even though some tooth discoloration comes with age, often times, it’s a consequence of plaque buildup. Hence, to lower bacteria in the mouth and prevent build-up of plaque, you need to brush and floss the teeth daily.

Apple cider vinegar

The active ingredient in ACV, acetic acid, has the power to destroy bacteria and the antibacterial properties will cleanse the mouth cavity and whiten the teeth. A study has shown that this vinegar has a bleaching effect on the teeth. However, the acetic acid can also erode the enamel therefore, it shouldn’t be used daily. Prior to use, dilute it with water and swish in the mouth for couple of minutes and then spit it off and rinse the mouth.

Prevention Is Vital

Limit the intake of staining foods and drinks

Specific foods and drinks like coffee, red wine, dark berries, and sodas are known to stain the teeth. Therefore, their intake needs to be limited. An effective way to avoid staining from drinks is to drink from a straw when possible. Chewing tobacco and smoking significantly contribute to yellowish teeth.

Limit the intake of sugar

Excessive amounts of sugar encourage the growth of bacteria that cause plaque and gingivitis. Therefore, brush the teeth after consumption of sweet food.


Foods rich in calcium like milk, cheese, and broccoli may protect the teeth from enamel erosion and maintain the whiteness of the teeth.

Other Unproven Methods

  • Activated charcoal- it supposedly removes toxins from the mouth and eliminates teeth stains
  • Kaolin clay-brushing with this clay is believed to remove teeth stains
  • Fruit peels– rubbing the teeth with orange, banana, and lemon peels is believed to make the teeth whiter

For severe teeth discoloration, consult your dentist.… Read more

The Surprising Reasons for White Spots On Teeth


White spots on teeth cause many people to be self-conscious about their smile. Of course, having white teeth is a sign of good oral hygiene and dental care. But white spots on teeth shouldn’t be ignored because they can sometimes be the first sign of tooth decay. However white blotches or patches under the tooth enamel that appear whiter aren’t always a sign that tooth decay is happening. The white spots could appear because of weak tooth enamel, a lack of calcium in the diet, consuming too many acidic foods, or a result of wearing braces.

If you notice discolored patches on your teeth, you should try to find out the cause of the white spots. The white spots are often a sign that minerals are leaching out of your teeth, a process called demineralization or decalcification. If left untreated, weakened tooth enamel can lead to tooth cavities forming and causing dental problems. There are many home remedies to help even the color of your teeth and get rid of the white patches. However, reversing the process of demineralization will take some time and patience.

Please read on to find out why white spots have appeared on your teeth. You will also find out in this article how to make your own homemade toothpaste to remineralize the enamel surface of your teeth. We will also look at easy ways to prevent the appearance of white blotches under the hard, shiny surface of your teeth.

What Causes White Spots on Teeth

There are many factors that can cause white stains on your teeth. During the course of a day, the bacteria and pH levels in our mouths constantly change. Usually, saliva helps to naturally cleanse acids from the teeth and prevent a layer of plaque building up. Also, good oral hygiene practices help to remove plaque-causing bacteria.

Here are some of the main reasons why spots can appear under the enamel of your teeth.

Poor oral hygiene

Poor oral hygiene can cause demineralization in the tooth structure and lead to the appearance of white spots on teeth. The teeth are made up of many minerals and are protected by a hard layer of enamel. Poor dental hygiene can cause a buildup of bacteria in the mouth which causes acidic compounds to weaken tooth enamel.

Information in the International Journal of Nanomedicine said that a lack of regular teeth brushing can lead to acidic properties eroding the surface of the tooth. This can cause a change in the mineral content of the teeth and eventually cause areas in the teeth that appear whiter. This is a process called decalcification or demineralization.

Wearing braces

Wearing braces can cause a buildup of plaque around the orthodontic bands and brackets which can lead to visible white blotches in the teeth. The white spots aren’t directly caused by the dental braces but because it is usually difficult to clean around the metal brackets.

A report in the Journal of Conservative Dentistry commented that white spots on the teeth are often seen when orthodontic braces are removed. These white lesions are usually a result of acidic and sugary content in the diet causing a buildup of plaque around the brace brackets.

Eating acidic foods

If you have a diet high in acidic foods, then you are at more risk of developing white spots under the hard enamel on your teeth. A buildup of acid in your oral cavity can cause the enamel to thin and cause decalcification in your teeth.

According to the International Journal of Nanomedicine, tooth demineralization that results in white spots is caused by the acidic content of food and drink. These acidic foods erode the enamel which protects the teeth.

The Journal of Conservative Dentistry explains that the white spots are due to bacteria causing calcium to leach out. If the lack of minerals isn’t replaced or addressed, then white patches will be visible in the teeth.

Consuming sugary drinks

It is a well-known fact that too much sugar and consuming sugary drinks are bad for your teeth. However, sugary drinks could be to blame for white patches on your teeth. Sugar also causes damage to the protective enamel on your teeth causing them to have a white stain-like appearance.

The Journal of Zhejiang Science reported that white spots are commonly seen in people who drink a lot of sugary drinks, including fruit juices and citrus juices. In these cases, the scientists reported that the white spots were connected with dental erosion caused by too much sugar.

Too much fluoride

A condition called fluorosis is when too much fluoride is ingested while teeth are still forming. Although many dentists say that fluoride is essential for healthy teeth, there are many recent scientific studies that have highlighted the dangers of fluoride in water.

Studies into the effects of fluoride on teeth while they are developing have shown that this chemical can have a negative impact on oral health. For example, the Journal of Applied Oral Science found that ingesting excessive amounts of fluoride can cause a child’s teeth to develop white discoloration.

Nutritional deficiencies

Nutritional deficiencies can affect the health of your teeth and cause a condition called enamel hypoplasia. Brown to whitish patches under tooth enamel is often seen in cases of enamel hypoplasia.

For example, the journal Caries Research reported that nutritional deficiencies can cause the surface of the teeth to be less mineralized. Researchers found that these deficiencies affected enamel formation and white, yellow, or brownish spots developed.

Tooth bleaching

Getting whiter teeth by bleaching can also cause whiter patches under the tooth enamel to appear. This happens because the bleaching agents affect the protective enamel layer on the teeth.

The Australian Dental Journal recommended that after bleaching teeth, you should use a remineralizing toothpaste to help build up the mineral content of your teeth and strengthen the enamel. This can help to repair any damage to the enamel and prevent white spots appearing on your teeth.

Celiac disease

One side effect of celiac disease is the appearance of white spots under the tooth enamel. Celiac disease is an intolerance to gluten and can result in tissue damage due to malabsorption of essential nutrients in the body. This can cause enamel hypoplasia and other abnormalities in the tooth structure.

According to the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario, celiac disease can cause tooth discoloration that results in yellow, brown, or white spots. It can also cause dry mouth syndrome, and the lack of saliva in the mouth can also contribute to the appearance of white patches on the teeth.

How to Get Rid of White Spots on Teeth Naturally

Looking after the health of your teeth and gums is one of the best ways to prevent and treat white spots on your teeth. However, just regular brushing may not be enough to remove the discoloration on your teeth.

Here are some ways to help remineralize your teeth to help gradually get rid of the white blotches that are affecting the look of your teeth.

Homemade remineralizing toothpaste

In cases where decalcification has caused white spots to appear in your teeth, many studies recommend using a toothpaste to remineralize your teeth. For example, the Australian Dental Journal (quoted earlier) recommended a remineralizing toothpaste to repair damaged enamel layers.

It is easy to make you own remineralizing toothpaste to help remove white patches from your teeth.

How to use:

The recipe for a homemade toothpaste is as follows:

  1. You will need 5 teaspoons calcium powder and 3-5 teaspoons of virgin coconut oil.
  2. Gradually mix the coconut oil with the calcium powder until you have a thick, fine paste.
  3. Add a drop of food grade peppermint oil to give a fresh taste to the toothpaste.
  4. Use a clean popsicle stick to apply the homemade toothpaste to your toothbrush.
  5. Clean your teeth 2-3 times a day to help restore minerals to your teeth and get rid of the white tooth patches.

After brushing your teeth to remove the buildup of bacteria and remineralize your teeth, you can try out one of these mouthwashes to help keep your teeth clean – saline solution or baking soda mouthwash.

Eggshell toothpaste

You can also make an eggshell toothpaste to help remineralize your teeth and eliminate white stains and lines from your teeth. Eggshells contain high amounts of calcium and other minerals that are essential for healthy teeth.

The Journal of Clinical & Diagnostic Research found that brushing your teeth with eggshell powder can help to reduce the number of cavities and white spots on teeth. For examples, the researchers found that the high pH content of eggshell powder helped to lower acidic content in the mouth. Also, the levels of calcium help to restore essential minerals to the teeth.

How to use:

Make a great natural toothpaste using eggshells to help remove white spots from your teeth. Here is the recipe:

  1. Boil eggshells in a pan of boiling water to kill off any bacteria from the shells. Ideally, you need enough eggshells to create 1/4 cup of eggshell powder.
  2. Allow the eggshells to dry before grinding them in a coffee grinder to create a fine powder.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon baking soda to the powder.
  4. Add just enough virgin coconut oil to form a paste of toothpaste consistency.
  5. Use as you would any regular toothpaste to remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and help eliminate white patches from your teeth.

Avoid foods that damage tooth enamel

If you have a problem of white spots on your teeth, you should avoid foods that damage tooth enamel. As already mentioned in this article, acidic and sugary foods destroy the protective layer on your teeth and can lead to more cavities and white teeth spots appearing.

Some research suggests that foods containing phytic acid prevent the body absorbing some nutrients and minerals. For example, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that phytic acid impairs the absorption of calcium, zinc, and iron in humans.


Foods that contain high amounts of phytic acid are brown rice, beans, peas, grains, seeds, and nuts. Of course, a healthy diet should incorporate these healthy foods. However, you could limit your intake of these phytic acid foods while you are using natural toothpaste to remineralize your teeth.

For more information on what foods to avoid for healthy teeth and gums, please read my article on how to fight cavities and tooth decay naturally.

Eat for healthy teeth

As well as avoiding or limiting certain foods that negatively affect the health of your mouth, you can incorporate certain foods that help boost dental health. This can make sure that you don’t suffer from a mineral deficiency that can result in white spots on your teeth.

According to dentist Dr. Alfred D. Wyatt Jr on WebMD, the best foods for oral health are cheeses, chicken, nuts (remember that nuts also contain phytic acid mentioned previously) and milk because they provide plenty of calcium. For people who are lactose intolerant and cannot ingest milk products, Dr. Wyatt recommends green vegetables that are high in calcium. Also, firm vegetables and fruits such as apples and pears have a high water content and help to stimulate saliva production which protects your teeth.

Of course, calcium is an essential mineral for healthy teeth and bones, and you can read my article about better sources of calcium than dairy products to give you some great sources of calcium that will keep your teeth strong.

Oil pulling

The Ayurvedic technique of oil pulling helps to remove a buildup of plaque from teeth and prevent cavities forming. Oil pulling involves swishing 2 tablespoons of high-quality organic cold pressed oil around your mouth for 15-20 minutes. This helps to prevent white spots on teeth, pull toxins from saliva and acts as an antiseptic mouthwash.

A review published in 2017 in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine published information on the effect of oil pulling for dental health. Researchers have found that oil … Read more

How to Remove Dental Plaque in 5 Minutes Naturally, without Going to the Dentist


Dental plaque is the buildup of food waste in both the internal and external teeth surfaces. This is an oral problem which can contribute to bad breath and other oral health problems if the residues harden and become calcined in the teeth and cause bleeding. Even though there is no definitive solution to the prevention of plaque, there are specific homemade methods which can help you lower the accumulation of the residue and prevent the worsening of the disease.

Who Is at a Higher Risk?

Smokers can experience yellowish stains on their teeth because the nicotine piles up on the teeth and people who drink too much coffee or tea are more prone to dental plaque. If left untreated, plaque can cause tooth decay and loss of teeth.

What Can You Do?

The average individual should consult their dentist every 6 months to do a procedure known as deep prophylaxis, a dental procedure which cleanses the teeth thoroughly. Although the procedure is affordable, a lot of people avoid it because they are afraid of dental treatment. If this is the case with you as well, do not worry, there are two potent natural remedies which can save you a trip to the dentist’s office.

Home Remedy No.1

You will need:

  • Half a liter of water
  • 60 grams of flour nutshell


In an aluminum container, on low heat, boil the water together with the flour nutshell. Wait for it to reach the boiling point and then leave it to boil for 10 more minutes. Turn off the heat. When the mixture cools off, you can use it to brush the teeth for 5 minutes, 2 times per one month.

Home Remedy No.2

You will need:

  • 2 tbsp of sunflower seed
  • 2 tbsp of lime juice
  • Half a liter of water


Put the ingredients in an aluminum container and simmer it over low heat for 60 minutes. Use the mixture to brush the teeth for 5 minutes, twice per month.

Additional Tips:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing the teeth after meals
  • Opt for an organic toothpaste since conventional ones have overly-aggressive substances that damage the pH of the oral cavity
  • Use a mouthwash, preferably a homemade one
  • Do not forget dentist visits every 6 months or so

5 Steps For Healing Your Tooth Decay And Reverse Cavities


Solid gums and teeth make it simple for you to eat and in addition appreciate sustenance. Various issues can negatively affect your oral wellbeing. Be that as it may, taking great care of your gums and teeth will keep them solid as you age.

The most ideal approach to keep great oral wellbeing is to eat solid and have legitimate oral cleanliness. Indeed, different supplement insufficiencies are the principle guilty party of tooth rot, for example, low levels of fat-solvent vitamins, for example, vitamin An and vitamin D and An in your body. Shockingly, the standard American eating regimen is high in prepared nourishments and low in vitamins and minerals.

That is not all, phytic corrosive present in some plant nourishments has been found to add to tooth rot. To be more particular, phytic corrosive is really a compound present in plants. This compound is made, with the goal that plant tissues could store phosphorous. Phytic corrosive is available in vegetables, nuts, seeds, and grains. When you devour seeds and grains, the phosphorous found in them isn’t promptly bioavailable, which implies your body can’t process it. Besides, phytic corrosive abatements the measure of phosphorus accessible from the nourishment you eat. Likewise, it ties with minerals, similar to zinc, iron, magnesium and calcium to make a phytate. At the point when bound as phytates, every one of these minerals are made inaccessible to you. Along these lines, nourishments rich in phytic corrosive go about as hostile to supplements by decreasing your blood phosphorous levels and meddling with your body’s capacity to assimilate essential minerals from your eating routine.

Be that as it may, you can expel the corrosive by dousing vegetables, nuts, and grains medium-term in an answer of water and 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice.… Read more
