... dentist recommended brushing with baking soda
19 Nov 2009
This is good advice. Baking soda whitens teeth. Baking soda is able to penetrate the teeth’s enamel and lighten the stains from a yellow or brown to give a much whiter appearance. This is good preventative treatment if using chlorhexidine mouthwash.
If this does not remove the discolouration adequately then professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygenist will help remove the stain.
