In a nutshell:
Ah, the classic DIY teeth whitening solution.
Baking soda can gently polish away stains on the surface of your teeth, thanks to its mildly abrasive nature.
It’s also a prevalent ingredient in toothpaste commercials.
Mix 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda with a few drops of water to form a paste then brush your teeth.
Don’t use this solution every day.
Instead, brush with baking soda twice to thrice a week.
Aside from being an antiseptic, hydrogen peroxide can act as a mild bleach.
But of course, pick one that’s food grade.
Going back, this home solution can help whiten your stained teeth.
Either brush using hydrogen peroxide alone or mix it with baking soda.
If it’s the latter, brush for 1-2 minutes twice a day for a week.
Like baking soda, hydrogen peroxide may increase tooth sensitivity.
As such, it’s not a long-term fix and is not suited for people who already have sensitive teeth.
Papain is an enzyme that occurs in papaya and may help whiten teeth.
A study pointed out that solutions containing this ingredient could provide modest whitening effects.
So, if you don’t mind eating papaya, then try eating more often.
Coconut oil pulling is another popular teeth whitening method that you can do at home.
In addition to teeth whitening, it helps remove plaque and bacteria from the mouth.
When picking coconut oil, go for a high-quality, organic oil that doesn’t have harmful ingredients.
Swish 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil in your mouth for 10-30 minutes.
Make sure the oil isn’t touching the back of your throat.
Also, don’t swallow it as it contains bacteria and toxins from your mouth.
Rinse your mouth with water and drink a full glass of water.
Lastly, brush your teeth.
Apple cider vinegar
When used in very small amounts, ACV can whiten your tooth.
To create a mouthwash out of it, mix 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with 6 ounces of water.
Swish this solution for 30 seconds, rinse with water, and brush your teeth.
Use it with caution and only for short amounts of time as it can damage the hardness and surface structure of teeth.
Lemon, orange, or banana peels
While this home remedy doesn’t have scientific research backing it, it’s worth a try.
Plus, it’s completely harmless since it doesn’t involve any harmful chemicals or harsh ingredients.
To do it, take a banana, orange, or lemon peel and gently rub it on your teeth.
Keep rubbing for around 2 minutes then wash your mouth and brush your teeth.
The peels of these fruits have citric acid, which theoretically, may whiten teeth.
