We provide teeth whitening to clients across Belfast, but we are sad to say that we’ve never really dealt with any major celebrities looking to get their teeth whitened. Maybe this is because most celebrities live over in Hollywood, and they have their own secret methods for achieving that bright white smile. But what secret tricks do they use? We’ve outlined some weird tips that we’ve read online about how certain celebrities of present and past whiten their teeth.
Oil pulling is a bizarre practice that has been around for years, and is popular amongst a certain branch of celebrities – the crazy kind. Although the practice has been popular amongst Eastern countries for years, many Western doctors have been quick to dismiss claims that it could actually improve the appearance of your teeth. We’ve tried it once, and apart from tasting disgusting, we didn’t notice much improvement. A recent surge in popularity amongst celebrities has convinced us to try it again though, maybe using coconut oil instead of sunflower oil (yuck).
But aside from anything else, there are some claims that oil pulling could be potentially harmful. There have been reported cases of Lipoid Pneumonia in people that regularly practice oil pulling, which doesn’t sound too good to us.
So sure, give it a shot. It might work for you, who knows? But don’t expect a miracle cure for your teeth. If you’re looking to get your teeth whitened, you might need professional teeth whitening.
