The most attractive characteristic of a person is a shiny and healthy smile that can bring happiness and joy. However, each person needs to take care of the oral health. In this article, you will read about some very useful and interesting ways of improving your smile, brightening the teeth and solving some issues which can be harmful for your overall oral health.

Firstly, we will talk about some of the properties that the commercial products for whitening the teeth have.  In America, over 1 billion dollars are spent on these products every year. But, these products have some side effects, such as:
  • Toothache
  • Brittle teeth
  • The teeth becomes yellow very quick
  • Gum irritation
  • Receding gum
  • Infections and oral diseases
  • Translucent teeth
Some of the teeth whiteners have positive effects, but when they are used frequently, they do not last very long and they can cause grave teeth damage.
That’s why it is better to utilize natural products which come without side effects. A spice which is amazing and can make your teeth very white, without any side effects is golden turmeric.
It is also used for treating a number of other conditions as well. Its origin is from India and then is spread to Asia, Africa and Caribbean. Turmeric is being used as a medicine and for consumption for thousands of years in the whole world. Traces of this ‘gold’ ancient spice have been discovered on the teeth of some ancient skeletons.
If used in moderation, this amazing spice offers health benefits for the whole body. By using turmeric capsules you can incorporate turmeric in your diet which you can add in your drinks, smoothies and dishes.
In one study in India, it was conducted that curcumin, which is a potent compound of turmeric can relieve depressions sans causing any side effects.
In addition, you can also use turmeric for teeth whitening. You just need to prepare an incredible paste.
  • Coconut oil – 1 tablespoon
  • Peppermint oil – a little
  • Powdered turmeric – 2 capsules
First, you need to mix all the ingredients and then, dip your toothbrush into the paste and brush your teeth as usual. After that, spit it and wash your mouth. After a few days, your teeth will be considerably whiter.
