Coconut Oil Pulling

A beautiful white smile is one of your greatest assets and the first thing people notice about you.??✨

After your teeth whitening our specialist actually recommend that you refrain from using any toothpaste with whitening properties or baking soda. After this recommendation, it never fails that our clients then don’t know what to do. We get it, everyone buys the whitening toothpaste and ONLY the whitening toothpaste. 

Our next question - do you have any coconut oil? Coconut oil is a staple in most homes these days and no wonder. It is a miracle oil! With so many benefits we can’t stop recommending some extra at-home remedies. So for the next two days, we recommend gently brushing your teeth and using coconut oil versus your everyday toothpaste. Coconut oil has so many benefits and is a popular choice because it has a pleasant taste and offers many additional health benefits. 

  • Whitens teeth 

  • Helps prevent gingivitis and cavities 

  • Kills bacteria that causes bad breath 

  • Reduces inflammation 

  • Improves detoxification 

  • Reduces tooth sensitivity and pain 

  • Removes bacteria 

  • Helps clear the sinuses

Once you are able to use your regular toothpaste we still recommend that you sub in coconut oil every now and then. You can either brush with it or use the traditional method of oil pulling by swishing around a tablespoon of oil for 15 minutes and then spitting it out.

Here are a couple more at-home Teeth Whitening techniques that we recommend our clients do between their office visits.

  1.  BRUSH WITH BAKING SODA. It has natural whitening properties, which is why it's a popular ingredient in commercial toothpaste. It's a mild abrasive that can help scrub away surface stains on teeth.

  1. BRUSH WITH HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. Hydrogen peroxide is a natural bleaching agent that also kills bacteria in your mouth. In fact, people have been using hydrogen peroxide for years to disinfect wounds because of its ability to kill bacteria. Many commercial whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide, although at a much higher concentration than you will use. (psssst… we use a 17% food grade and dental-grade hydrogen peroxide for our whitening treatment)

  1. USE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. Apple cider vinegar has been used for centuries as a disinfectant and natural cleaning products. Acetic acid, which is the main active ingredient in apple cider vinegar, effectively kills bacteria. The antibacterial property of vinegar is what makes it useful for cleaning your mouth and whitening your teeth.
