Gum bleaching is how dentists would try to remove gum pigmentation in the past — the keyword there being tried. Using painful lasers, dentists would literally burn away an entire layer of the gum tissue in the hopes of getting rid of the melanocytes (which produce pigment-causing melanin). The results? Painful gums, no change in color, and absolutely no improvement in overall gum health. Luckily, using natural means to brighten your teeth has come a long way, and you don’t need to physically burn away layers of your own body just to get pearly white teeth again!
4 Ways to Lighten Your Teeth at Home:
1) Whitening Toothpaste - Regular brushing with whitening toothpaste will help remove surface stains on your teeth. For best results, use the toothpaste twice a day for two weeks. Make sure to brush for at least two minutes and clean between your teeth as well! 2) Coconut Oil - Rubbing coconut oil onto your teeth can not only make them feel healthier, but it can also help lighten their color. 3) Baking Soda & Lemon Rinse - Dissolve a tablespoon of baking soda in water and swish it around in your mouth. Then rinse with lemon water (a mixture of 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and 8 ounces of water). This will help refresh your mouth as well as keep it white and smelling fresh!

The best way to whiten your teeth is by using toothpaste that contains baking soda, which helps remove stains and can bleach the teeth. Baking soda is also a natural tooth whitener, meaning it will get rid of all the plaque and bacteria that cause yellowing.
To make your own baking-soda-based toothpaste at home:
1) Mix two tablespoons of baking soda with two tablespoons of water in a small bowl until it's fully dissolved. (You can also buy pre-made baking soda/water paste from any health food store.)
2) Add one tablespoon of coconut oil for some extra cleaning power. Add more or less depending on how thick you want your paste to be.
Natural Food Ingredients:
A sugar rub is an easy and natural way to brighten your gums at home. All you need is two tablespoons of white sugar, one tablespoon of water, and a pinch of salt. Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl until the mixture becomes wet and grainy. Once you've created this mixture, take it over to your sink and use a toothbrush to paint it onto the top and bottom of your gum line (where your teeth meet). Let it sit for about five minutes before rinsing with warm water. You can do this once every day or as needed until you see results!
Mix together one teaspoon of raw, organic honey with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Apply the mixture to your gums and leave it on for about five minutes. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with water afterward and then brush your teeth as usual. The bacteria in the honey will naturally kill any bad breath-causing bacteria, leaving you with fresher breath and brighter-looking gums.
To help naturally brighten your gums at home, mix the following ingredients together:
1 tablespoon of baking soda
1⁄2 tablespoon of salt
1 teaspoon of peppermint extract
1⁄4 teaspoon of vegetable glycerin (optional)
2 tablespoons of water. Apply this paste to your teeth and gums and leave it on for five minutes before rinsing. You can also use a toothbrush or small finger brushes.
