A couple of weeks ago, I decided to make my own homemade natural whitening toothpaste recipe and see if it worked. Im a coffee and tea drinker, and my teeth werent horribly stained, but not really white either. To make a whitening paste, simply crush 1 strawberry into a pulp and mix in teaspoon of baking soda.
Spread this mixture onto your teeth using a damp toothbrush and leave it there for at least 5 minutes. When the time is up, wet your toothbrush and gently clean each tooth before rinsing the solution away. Making your own teeth whitening paste is fun, increases the brightness of your smile and attacks the foods and drinks that are the worst offenders of staining teeth in the first place.
To this end, stay away from any citricbased homemade solution, like lemon, orange or strawberry. The acid in these fruits can break down and harm your enamel. Made with other ingredients that also foster a healthy mouth and brighter smile, this DIY Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening Paste is a great way to brighten up those pearly whites!

Dr. Malmstrom: The baking soda in this tip may have some impact on whitening your teeth but there are no studies showing if coconut oil works as a tooth whitener. If youre going to do tooth whitening at home, youre better off using an overthecounter product rather than a DIY technique.
