Throughout the past several years, DIY teeth whitening technology has advanced significantly. While going to the dentist (which let’s face it, no one wants to do) is obviously the most effective way to give your pearly whites a refresh, there are plenty of safe and non-toxic treatments you can find over-the-counter. Many old-school whitening products were (and still are) chock full of potentially harmful chemicals like peroxide and fluoride, which some believe are dangerous for your health — whether you’re swallowing them or simply gargling with them. However, there are plenty of all-natural remedies to brighten up your smile, including baking soda and charcoal.
Aside from health concerns, traditional teeth whiteners in the oral care arena can also be problematic for those with sensitive teeth and/or gums, as well. These formulas may cause dental pain and irritation, which is why many make the switch to all-natural oral care products. If you’re looking for organic and chemical-free alternatives to traditional whitening products, we’ve rounded up some safe options to try.

3. ZIMBA Teeth Whitening Strips
These natural whitening strips harness the brightening powers of coconut oil for a natural lightening of stains and discoloration.
4. Aotto Activated Charcoal Natural Teeth Whitener
This activated charcoal whitening powder is easy to use. Simply wet the toothbrush, dip it in the powder and gently make circular motions on your teeth for two minutes. After the two minutes are up, you rinse your mouth thoroughly. The powder tastes like mint and coconut. You’ll begin to see results after one week of use.
5. Lumineux Ultra-Bright Whitening Pen
Unlike many of its counterparts, this teeth whitening pen uses natural ingredients, instead of toxic ones. It’s dual-action because the formula’s strong essential oils both remove stains and keep away new stains. Swipe some of this gel onto your teeth and you can start repelling stains just 60 seconds after application. If you’re whitening your teeth, though, steer clear of food and beverage for 30 minutes after.
