One thing that most dentists would recommend when it comes to a natural teeth whitener is the use of baking soda, sounds weird I know! Just dab your toothpaste on some baking soda and start brushing normally. You shouldn’t even notice the difference compared to brushing with just toothpaste alone, as long as you don’t put too much on. It has a powerful cleaning effect, and the real bonus is that it is no real difference to cleaning your teeth in the regular manner.
Steps to Whiten Teeth With Baking Soda
1. Add a teaspoon of baking soda and a pinch of salt to a small glass and add just sufficient water to dissolve this mixture into a paste. The paste should be evenly blended and there should be no lumps of salt or baking soda.
2. Dip the bristles of a soft toothbrush into this paste and brush your teeth with it, just as you would with your usual toothpaste.
3. Do not swallow the baking soda mixture. After brushing your teeth with it for about two minutes, spit it out and rinse your mouth well with water.
4. Repeat the entire process once in two weeks for the best results.
