Natural way to whiten teeth!

Everybody wants whiter teeth, Products like Crest white strips do whiten the teeth. I don't have sensitive teeth , but when I use the strips it certainly makes my gums and teeth sensitive for a little while after use. There are several ways to whiten teeth naturally.

Remedy 1:
baking soda

mash 1 strawberry in a bowl, add a 1 tsp of baking soda
and brush with the strawberry puree /baking soda mixture

voila whiter teeth

Remedy 2: Oil Pulling (A detox for the Mouth)

1Tb Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (solid at room temp)

swish around in mouth for 10-20 minutes 

rinse with salt water and brush 

A couple days later teeth will be whiter gums and tongue will be pinker. 

Remedy 3: 

Dr Oz Teeth Whitening Remedy Ingredients:

Dr Oz White Teeth Remedy

- Baking Soda (around 1/4 cup of baking soda)
- Lemon Juice (from half of a lemon)

Dr Oz Teeth Whitening Home Remedy Directions:

1.  Squeeze the fresh lemon juice into the baking soda.  Dr Oz did not mention if you could substitute the pre-bottled lemon juice for a fresh lemon, but if someone experiments with this, please share with everyone how it works!
2.  The lemon juice and baking soda solution will bubble.
3.  Dip a cotton ball into the lemon juice and baking soda solution and apply it to your teeth.  I might even try a qtip to get into some of the nooks and crannies at the top of your teeth.
4.  Let the lemon and baking soda solution sit on your teeth for around a minute.
5.  Brush your teeth to remove the acid, because you do not want to leave the lemon juice and baking soda solution on for too long or it will erode your teeth.
