Rubbing These Two Things On Your Teeth Will Make Them Whiter In Minutes!

This is a DIY you can do right now

Now it's no secret that there are a slew of unusual ways to whiten teeth, but the pearly-white-yielding concoction that this Desi blogger, Farah Dhukai, uses is slightly less jarring and just as effective for a whiter smile within minutes. She simply combines one tablespoon of coconut oil with a pinch of turmeric to create a paste, brushes her teeth with the blend, lets it sit on her teeth for five minutes, then rinses it off for an instantly brighter grin. But be forewarned, this method willturn your toothbrush yellow.

Here's the thing, you won't see a drastic difference the first time you try it. The idea is that if you get into the habit of doing this a few times a week, it will—like white strips—work gradually over time. This is because turmeric, an ancient medicinal herb, helps removes plaque (some that's not evident to the naked eye), which causes discolouration. But as opposed to harsh bleaches you'll find in over-the-counter treatments, its natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties make it super healthy for your oral health, much like it is for the skin. In fact, research has found that it can help prevent dental disease. And this D.I.Y.'s other ingredient—coconut oil—works similarly to wash out stains.
