Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. There are a number of at home tricks you can do to brighten your smile. Today's challenge is to try a natural teeth whitening method.

Here are some natural ways to whiten your teeth:

  • Eat crunchy fruits and vegetables- Raw crunchy fruits and vegetables like celery, carrots, apples, and pears are naturally abrasive so they polish your teeth and remove stains from your tooth enamel.
  • At home stain remover- mix baking soda and lemon juice into a paste, put it on your toothbrush, and brush your teeth. This combination will remove surface stains and will brighten your teeth.
  • Use strawberries- crush strawberries into a pulp, put it on your toothbrush, and brush your teeth. Let it sit for 5 minutes before you rinse your mouth with water.

How often do you go to the dentist? Do you have any teeth whitening tricks? Have you ever tried a natural method?


One mom who participates in all 10 days of the challenge will be entered to win a $50 American Express gift card and Dove Beauty Bars!

I just don't understand why some people choose to live in filth.

I love love love my smile (and I love to smile).

I go every six months to the dentist to keep my teeth looking and feeling good. And I use strawberries all the time to keep them white. I haven't used a mass-produced teeth-whitening product in years since I heard about the strawberry tip.

I have a secret with my teeth. :( Not sure if I am ready to say it in a big public post. Scared that I would be bashed.

I don't go to the dentist as often as I should and I do not try to whiten my teeth either. I brush regularly and use mouth wash, but that's about it. I floss a few times a week too.

I do not go to the dentist but we do do oil pulling at home! We brush. I have a pretty large phobia of the dentist.
