There are few things more attractive than a nice set of pearly whites and a warm smile! Regardless of the shape of your smile, I think you’re beautiful and I encourage you to use it often! Smiles are free and have the power to bring so much joy to the world.
Today, I want to give you a tool that is natural, safe, efficient and guaranteed to leave your teeth whiter than it found them!
The Problem With Commercial Whiteners
Americans spend over 1 billion dollars a year on over-the-counter tooth whitening products. But are you getting what you’re paying for?
Most people have no idea that most whiteners come with risks, such as:
- Teeth becoming translucent
- Gum irritation
- Gum receding
- Oral infections/disease
- Teeth becoming brittle
- Teeth going yellow again faster than before
It’s true… although many teeth whiteners will work short term, the results often don’t last. Overuse can lead to serious issues that are not worth the temporary satisfaction at all!
The good news is you don’t need these chemical teeth whitening products!
As with most things, mother nature has some tricks up her sleeve to help you get that vibrant smile you’ve always wanted.
The answer to whiter teeth is in your pantry. If you’ve been hanging around the health and wellness community, then I’m sure you’ve heard of this increasingly popular spice. It’s actually one of my favorite superfoods to use every single day.
Turmeric is a naturally vibrant, golden spice that is often used to make mustard appear yellow. “What? A yellow spice that will help make your teeth more white? Pretty sure you’re crazy, Drew.”
Although turmeric’s powerful color actually stains fabrics and surfaces, when it comes to your teeth – turmeric is a great teeth whitener! Strange, I know. But it’s true.
- Tablespoon of coconut oil
- capsules worth of turmeric powder (about ½ -1 teaspoon)
- little peppermint oil
- Wet your toothbrush and dip it in the mixture. Brush it on teeth as you would toothpaste. Allow to sit for 3-5 minutes.
- Spit and rinse well.
- Continue daily for a few days or even a week until you see desired results
And that’s it!
The great thing about using natural remedies made from superfoods is that they almost always contain multiple benefits. Many studies have been performed to show the benefits of turmeric in dentistry and for oral hygiene.
