Hi friends, A lot of people want to have their teeth white and bright, but don't know how to and think that going to dentist is the only way.. but it isn't You can use many natural methods to whiten your teeth and below i have mentioned some steps which can be carried out at home in order to whiten teeth naturally. 1 ) Reduce the amount of drinks which cause the tooth enamel to stain, such drinks include coffee, tea, red wine and carbonated drinks. If you are someone who drinks a lot of carbonated drinks, and cannot stop, and consider drinking with a straw, so that the drink has less contact with the teeth. 2 ) Make it a habit to brush your teeth immediately after eating. 3 ) Rub raw strawberries on your teeth, and if you can puree them, then its even better. The enzyme in the strawberries acts as a whitening agent, but make sure after you have rubbed them on your teeth, brush your teeth to remove the sugars and acids. 4 ) Eating crunchy foods like carrots, broccoli, and apples and so on help in removing plaque which makes appearence of the teeth dull. 5 ) Make a paste of lemon juice and one teaspoon of salt, and use this paste to brush your teeth. Hope these tips might be useful for you....

Thankyou so much for this article. I am the one who tend to stay away from doctors as much as possible & believe in natural home remedies for almost everything. I want to ask you that as you mentioned about tea & coffee,does it make the same difference whether we drink it Hot or cool. One more thing,I am unable to understand carrots & apples make teeth white or vice versa. I think I can add one thing that you can use salt with mustard oil to massage your teeth to get them white.but i find it bad in taste & lemon juice & salt is very sour,so I sprinkle a pinch of salt with toothpaste.

hi kherasakshi , sprinkling a pinch of salt in the toothpaste is also a good idea... it doesn't make any difference in drinking coffee or tea in a hot or cool way...

Great tips. I have never heard of the strawberry thing before. Another tip is to brush your teeth more often. If you only brush once or twice a day, increase it to 3-4 times a day.
