How Fast does Baking Soda Whiten Teeth – How to Use it to Whiten your Teethposted by: Gretchen
Teeth whitening and bleaching can get very expensive if it’s done by a professional dentist. Some whitening products are also quite ineffective and costly. However, there are less expensive methods to have the sparkling teeth that you want. One effective home remedy is through the use of baking soda. Honestly, I haven’t tried this myself. We’ll try to scrutinize its effectiveness from reviews and experiences of people who have tried. First of all, let’s understand what baking soda is.
What is Baking Soda ?
Baking soda is a white powder with crystalline grains and has the chemical formula NaHCO3. It has practical uses which include leavening agent in baking and household cleaner.
How to Use Baking Soda for Whitening Your Teeth ?
Dip your toothbrush into the box of baking soda. Make sure that the box is new and you’ve just opened it. Then brush your teeth in circular motion. Reach every surface to make sure all the stains are scarped off. Do this for 5-10 minutes. Then rinse your mouth with water well.
How Quick ?
Baking soda works by removing tough stains giving your teeth a whiter appearance. It can actively eliminate dulling plaque and tough yellow stains that are implanted on the surface. It actually dissolves into the surface of the teeth and this removes the stains. By brushing with baking soda, the stains are being scraped off. It’s really effective but should not be done with caution. You should only use this once every two weeks so as not to destroy your tooth enamel. It can also dissolve orthodontic glue so this is not good for those who have permanent retainers or have braces. How quick is it? Well, it depends on the stains. It may take time if the stains are really tough.
Using baking soda as a whitener may not give you the result that a professional can give you but this is a good way of maintaining the cleanliness and spark of your teeth. If you think it’s not enough it is better to make an appointment with your dentist.
