Hey guys, so who wants whiter teeth without paying the high price or without having sore gums? I've tried the Crest Whitening Strips years ago and it made my gums sore, however it does work. And the professional way is a little too pricey and I like a good deal. I've always purchased the whitening toothpaste which contains baking soda. Then it hit me. It's the BAKING SODA! Baking soda!
I discovered this during my High School years and still continue with this same routine.
Here's what I do:
1. Wet my toothbrush
2. Dip it in baking soda and slightly smooth it out with your finger
3. Apply toothpaste and brush!
The great thing is you can use any toothpaste while still getting the whitening effect. I've been doing this for at least 10 years! I drink coffee everyday. Sometimes when I take a few days off I notice the difference and then just start it up again. Back to whiter teeth! For $1.99! The price for baking soda. Technically you can get it for $1 at the .99 store. I put my baking soda in a travel soap container. Its wide and easy to dip my brush in on a flat angle, and I can bring it with me when I travel. My dentist always praises me on how clean my teeth are and my hygienist said its perfectly fine to use it. It's what included in the prophy paste-polish that the hygienist puts on our teeth after they scrub them and before they use fluoride.
So what about our enamel? Does the baking soda scrub it away? These are questions we think about and here is my answer to that and what I was told by my hygienist.
If you have any other questions relating to teeth post a comment below. My cousin is a hygienist so if there's something I don't know I can surely find out =) CHEERS ON GETTING WHITER TEETH NATURALLY!
