It sounds amazing, doesn’t it, that turmeric, a plant leaving stains on almost everything, can help whiten teeth! These three beneficial ingredients will not only clean and whiten your teeth in a natural and harmless way, but it will also help your teeth and gums overcome infections and inflammation and tooth decay. You can use it to relieve a toothache in case of sensitive and tender gums as well as to prevent caries and bad breath. I have done this and believe me it works. You can also add a little bit of peppermint for flavor, and don’t be shocked if your toothbrush turns yellow.
