There are plenty of products and/or services on the market that promise to brighten your teeth. While some of them actually work, others simply do not. What is even worse is that you will be asked to spend tons of money, which is a good thing somehow if it achieves the desired result. But before you even consider these products and/or services, consider these natural –and definitely unconventional – ways of whitening your teeth.

#1. Oil


This could either be sesame oil or virgin coconut oil. This is where you are going to use it for gargling, not cooking. Sesame oil or virgin coconut oil is swished around inside the mouth and then spat out after fifteen minutes. As the substance is vigorously “pulled” back and forth between your teeth, the mucous membranes inside your mouth absorb nutrients from it.

Sesame oil has omega-3 fatty acids, iron, calcium, and vitamins A, B, and E; while virgin coconut oil has antibacterial properties that promote healthier gums and cavity-free teeth. Just make sure not to swallow any of the spittle that will form as you gargle.
