Natural Teeth Whitening – Fact or Fiction?

And whilst I’m all for anything that could be quicker and cheaper than the tried and tested methods, some of the recommendations (Facebook, I’m looking at you here..) can be downright harmful.

Here’s a great article about charcoal products, oil pulling and turmeric from the American dental Association. https://www.mouthhealthy.org/en/az-topics/w/natural-teeth-whitening

The TLDR version…. Stick to what your dentist and hygienist recommend….
