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.
The best method to whiten your teeth is by use of custom trays with a professional whitening agent. This method is approved by the ADA. Some baking soda can be too abrasive and wear away at your teeth.
