Here we have 5 natural and effective ways to whiten teeth without affecting your enamel and bank account. Before you get into home remedies you should know that all of these methods should not be used at the same time. Pick one at a time and stick to it routinely.

Let’s discuss all methods,

#1- Use of Baking powder and lemon juice:

Mix a teaspoon of baking powder and freshly squeezed lemon juice, and brush your teeth with the paste of this mixture for two-three minutes. You will feel wonderful after it because baking powder eliminates stains on the surface of your teeth while lemon juice lightens your teeth. Remember do not leave it on your teeth for more than three minutes because it may damage your enamel.

After a couple of weeks of using this home treatment once or twice a week, your teeth will be so blinding.

#2- Activated Charcoal:

Activated charcoal has recently been gaining fame as an amazing home remedy for teeth whitening. Activated charcoal is one of the easiest and most inexpensive products to naturally whiten teeth. As an antioxidant, this stuff really works wonders by removing all the toxins and surface stains left by tea, coffee, and food consumption. So if you want to try it, here is what you should do. Crush up one charcoal tablet into a powder and apply it to your clean and wet teeth brush and brush your teeth as normally you do. Brush your teeth with this paste for three minutes. If you decided to brush your teeth with activated charcoal for whitening teeth then use it only in moderation

#3-Powdered milk and Toothpaste:

Dairy products significantly improve the health of your teeth. But milk in dairy products is special because milk contains calcium and phosphorus which encourage the remineralization of teeth. You can either put more dairy products in your diet or simply use powdered milk to brush your teeth and combine it with your toothpaste for an even better effect. Just put some toothpaste on your teeth brush and add a bit of powdered milk on top and brush your teeth.

Do this one or two minutes for one time in a week to get white and strong teeth,

#4-Hydrogen Peroxide:

Hydrogen peroxide is a bleaching agent so make sure if you want to use this remedy your teeth are not too sensitive otherwise it will damage your teeth. If your teeth are strong then simply dip a cotton swab into peroxide and simply or gently rub it on your teeth. And be careful using this whitening remedy because this remedy is not recommended for frequent use; it can harm your enamel.

Doing it one or two times a week is plenty. 

If you do not want to harm your teeth then you simply find a toothpaste that has hydrogen peroxide in it from the store near you.

#5- Follow a white-teeth diet:

Firm and crisp foods can make your teeth white and cleaner. There are several products that can help you to reach your goal:


These berries are rich in malic acid. These acids assist in converting carbohydrates into energy your muscles use. In addition, they can effectively dissolve superficial teeth stains.


Vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli can make your teeth whiter if you crunch these products raw. It’s not easy to chew these vegetables. That’s why when you do this your mouth will produce a lot of salivae. Saliva along with hard vegetable pieces breaks down staining.

Quit cigarettes

Smoking leads to serious teeth damage such as:

  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth loss


Finally, if you want a white and happy smile you need to take care of your teeth regularly. According to DR.KATHLEEN W. WILSON: “You should brush your teeth twice a day right after you get up from the bed and before you go to sleep at night.” In the morning you clean the bacteria and plaque from your teeth that have accumulated at night. And when you brush your teeth before sleep you remove pieces of food from your teeth.
