Stained, yellowing teeth can be a turn off while the sparkle adds charm to your smile Here is how to get sparkling white teeth without spending much on the dental cosmetic products or a dentist visit too. Raid your kitchen for the ingredients.

  • Gargle with apple cider vinegar in the morning and then brush as usual. The vinegar helps help remove stains, whiten teeth, and kill bacteria in your mouth and gums.
  • Baking soda has bleaching properties. Use it directly or make a paste with strawberry and baking soda and spread on teeth. Leave for 5 minutes and immediately brush with toothpaste.
  • Detergent foods like apples, celery and carrots clean teeth naturally while foods such a spinach, lettuce and broccoli prevent from staining.
  • Tea, coffee and red wine alter the brightness and color of your teeth. To prevent stains brush your teeth or drink water immediately after having them.
  • Smoking turns the teeth yellow and in extreme cases black. Here is another important reason to quit.
  • Chewing mild chewing gum without artificial flavours can help reduce yellow stains on your teeth.
  • Lemon juice is a wonderful natural agent. It helps remove tartar (plaque). Mix little lemon juice with water and use as a mouthwash.


  • Brush salt on your teeth as it’s a natural cleanser and effectively removes stains.
  • Avoid carbonated drinks as they are highly acidic and can actually dissolve the upper layers of the tooth. This makes teeth sensitive and prone to discolouration.
  • Using a banana peel as a brush can even do wonders for your teeth.
