A healthy and shiny smile can be the most attractive property of a person, and it leads to bigger joy and happiness.
Nevertheless, it also needs to be taken care of, so this article will provide some quite interesting and useful information. Namely, we will suggest some natural ways to improve your smile, brighten your teeth and solve the issues that may destroy your oral health.
First of all, let us examine the properties of the commercial products for teeth whitening. Namely, people in the U.S. spend more than 1 billion dollars annually on these products. Yet, we need to question their efficacy.
The disadvantages of these whitening products are their harmful side- effects, which include:
- irritations of the gum
- brittle teeth
- receding gum
- teeth become yellow quickly
- translucent teeth
- oral diseases and infections
Some teeth whiteners offer positive effects, but they do not last for long, and the frequent use of these products can lead to severe teeth damage.
Due to all this, is it wise to avoid them. Instead, you can use natural products which cause no side- effects.
Fortunately, there is a way to obtain the desired effects completely naturally. The amazing spice that will aid you in this is probably already somewhere in your kitchen. It is the amazing, golden turmeric!
You should not worry about its effect, as turmeric’s color can only make your teeth exclusively white, unlike its effect on fabrics and surfaces.
Apart from being extremely effective in whitening your teeth, turmeric is also very useful in treating other health conditions as well.

This amazing spice was often called “gold” in many ancient scripts. Traces of it have been found on the teeth of ancient skeletons close to the Indus River, and also on many cooking supplies.
Unlike other anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals which are effective, but cause many side- effects, this remarkable spice provides positive effects for all body organ. Of course, if used in normal doses, otherwise, it can lead to slight nausea and diarrhea.
In order to include it in your daily diet, you can use turmeric capsules, and add them to your various dishes, smoothies, and drinks. It is best to use it in this form when preparing your natural toothpaste as well.
Furthermore, a study done by the experts of the medical college in India showed that curcumin, the powerful ingredient in turmeric was found to be able to relieve depression symptoms, without causing any side- effects!

Turmeric has powerful antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Its use will also protect you from gum irritations and reddening. Namely, people sometimes are not even aware that they are allergic to some of the chemicals in the different kinds of toothpaste they buy.
Toothaches and Oral infections
