It's been one week since I've started the turmeric teeth whitening method! Did it turn my teeth white? or stain it yellow?
Let me just get one thing out of the way, the turmeric definitely DID NOT stain my teeth! PHEW!
If you missed my previous blog post sharing my first time experience using this method you can check it out HERE and this is the blog that intrigued me to try the natural method posted by Healthy Holistic Living
Before I get into the results, the photos that I took of my teeth were unfortunately inconsistent (with lighting) and I forgot to take a photo on the Wednesday. So please be mindful when viewing the photos!
DAY 1 - Thursday February 11, 2016
I took this photo the day I filmed my announcement that I was going to try the turmeric method and BEFORE I tried turmeric. First thing's first, this photo is very bright and I'm not sure why it's so much brighter than all the other photos I took the days after (maybe it was my shirt, the sun that day or where I clicked focus). In this photo my teeth look so white, but they really aren't, so unfortunately this photo is a poor representation of the colour of my teeth before I started the method.
For the rest of the photos, I took them right after I used the turmeric paste!
DAY 2 - Friday February 12, 2016
In this photo, my teeth look more true to colour and I decided to start holding a piece of white paper to compare my teeth and hopefully see a difference.
DAY 3 - Saturday February 13, 2016
Day 3 compared to Day 2, I feel like there's a slight "whiter" difference.
DAY 4 - Sunday February 14, 2016
DAY 5 - Monday February 15, 2016
DAY 6 - Tuesday February 16, 2016
DAY 7 - Wednesday February 17, 2016
I forgot to take a photo this day :(
DAY 8 - Thursday February 18, 2016
DAY 9 - Friday February 19, 2016
DO YOU SEE A DIFFERENCE? (Click on the photo for enlarged view)
In my opinion, the photos from Day 2 to Day 9, I did not see much difference. In fact, my teeth fluctuate in colour (white/yellowy/blue) due to colour imbalance. However, in real life, I honestly do believe the method SLIGHTLY whitened my teeth (around the gums). The turmeric method is not going to give you the same results as Crest White Strips, so don't have high expectations. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative that is all natural, I'd say give this method a whirl. I've read so many articles claiming that it's a miracle teeth whitener but of course through these photos, you will think otherwise. Maybe 1 week wasn't enough and so I plan to continue to use it and see if I notice any major differences over the next month. Unfortunately these photos aren't a great representation of my experience, and I apologize for that! I hope you guys enjoyed this little experiment and if you have tried this method and had a different or similar result let me know in the comments :)
Thanks for reading!
