... dentist recommended brushing with baking soda
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.
