Do you think it's possible to smile widely and be confident that your teeth are sparkling white? The answer is ‘Yes and without spending a fortune on dental cosmetics!’ What we need are ingredients, which are simple to use and are easily available.



  • Rubbing the inside fibrous part of the peel, of a ripe banana, makes your teeth sparkle.
  • Juice of half a lemon when rubbed firmly but gently on the teeth removes yellow stains and tartar.
  • Half a teaspoon of baking soda to which a pinch of salt is added and rubbed on the teeth with a fingertip shows excellent results.
  • Strawberries are very good for whitening teeth. They can be rubbed on the teeth in pureed form or cut into halves and used.
  • For quick results dip your toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide and then gently brush the teeth.
  • Table salt may be used to rub stains off the teeth. Use fingertips for best results.
  • Use the inside of an orange peel to rub the teeth for good results.
  • Munching on crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples, carrots, cucumber, celery and parsley help in removing stains on teeth.


  • Fizzy drinks peel away the tooth enamel due to the acids in them and make the teeth weak and yellowish.
  • Drugs like cocaine, ecstasy, etc, are not only bad for health but also have a telling affect on the teeth as they restrict blood flow to the gums and cause extensive gum damage.
  • Smoking is also a major don’t for dental health as well as for general health. Nicotine leaves a residue on teeth causing yellowish stains on them.
  • Dark colored juices, like cranberry juice, leave stains on teeth due to the pigment and sugar they contain. Drink such juices with a straw.
  • Black coffee is also a culprit against sparkling, white teeth.
  • Tomato sauce and balsamic vinegar are said to cause staining of teeth.
  • Red wine is said to stain the teeth as well as wear away tooth enamel. It is easiest to swish some plain water in the mouth while at parties.
  • It is better to drink green tea or herbal tea as black tea does cause some staining on the teeth.
