Whiter Teeth In 5 Days…


FullSizeRender-5 copy 2



Disclaimer: I have to admit that I’m not one of those people who was naturally blessed with flawless skin, teeth that didn’t need braces (I had braces twice), or a body type that can eat whatever it wants and not have to work-out (those people seriously have to be aliens). But it’s okay, it’s helped me realize that working hard for certain things makes you appreciate them all the more.

So when I say that you can have whiter teeth in just 5 days … WITHOUT giving up red wine, coffee, tea, or blueberries… it might sound too good to be true, but it’s not!

Try these easy steps and your friends will be asking your beauty secret within days.





For this natural home remedy you will need:

– 1 Lemon

– Baking soda

– Toothbrush

– Water (for rinsing)

– Small Bowl (for mixing)

Mix 3-4 teaspoons of baking soda with enough (fresh) lemon juice to form a paste, please note that it’s normal for it to bubble. Use a tissue or paper towel to wipe your teeth clean of any excess saliva, then apply paste to your teeth with your toothbrush. Let sit for one minute, then rinse with water. It won’t taste like delicious lemonade by any means, but the baking soda and lemon mixed together will act as a natural bleaching aid to your teeth. I recommend trying this each morning for 5 days in a row.

The lauric acid found in coconut oil helps rid your teeth of bacteria that causes plaque, helping them to appear whiter. Coconut oil also helps promote gum health, and freshens breath. Win, win!

Place 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in your mouth and allow it to soften. Push and swish the coconut oil around and through your teeth for about 10 minutes (I use this time to do my eye make-up or get dressed), then spit out the oil, rinse with water, and brush your teeth as usual with your favorite toothpaste. This can be rather time consuming and is probably my least favorite teeth whitening method… So I only do the coconut swish 1-2 times per week.

* If you don’t like the taste of coconut I highly suggest skipping this teeth whitening method, the coconut flavor can get pretty intense.

Last but definitely not least.. Crest White Strips.

I literally SWEAR by these whitening strips. I know it’s not a natural home remedy, and I promise I don’t work for Crest, but I seriously promote these strips every time I get a compliment on my “white teeth”. They are super easy to use, extremely affordable (especially compared to the bleaching trays I previously bought from the dentist), and I see results in 2-3 days. My dentist now asks what I’m using to bleach my teeth and I give 95% of the credit to these heaven-sent strips!

BONUS: Use the Crest 3D White toothpaste in conjunction with the whitening strips and your teeth will get whiter than you’ve ever imagined!
