Does baking soda make your teeth whiter?
does brushing your teeth with toothpaste and also baking soda right from the box make your teeth whiter?

no. brushing your teeth with blood does.

it does somewhat help. I wouldn't go with those whiteners (even from the dentist). they make your teeth senstivie and the enamel thinner in the long run. this would be the best way to go without ruining your teeth

Can you help me with my question please

Did you ever notice how the celebrities have white teeth? It seems like every time you turn around you see a pearly white smile shining back. They're plastered on magazines and billboards. But did you know that most of the stars get their white teeth from veneers?

Veneers are a porcelain coating that dentist puts on top of your teeth. The average person cannot afford the thousands of dollars it would take to get veneers put on their teeth so that means that we have to get white teeth from a different method.

There are many methods that you can try to get white teeth. One of the most commonly heard of is using baking soda and peroxide to make a paste to brush teeth with. Make the paste the same consistency of toothpaste and leave on your teeth for two minutes.

After you rinse your mouth brush your teeth with regular toothpaste to get the peroxide/baking soda mixture out of your mouth. The basis behind this is that the peroxide will have bleaching effect on your teeth while the baking soda will gently rub the stains off.

It is not recommended to use baking soda and peroxide if you have any dental problems other than discolored teeth.

If you're going to use the baking soda and peroxide mixture to get white teeth make sure you do not use this method more than once a month because the baking soda's grittiness can rub the enamel off of your teeth.

Also using peroxide too often can hurt your gums. Peroxide actually kills your white blood cells when it is applied so overuse can reduce your gums ability to heal.

Hellooo Emma:)
ask ur dentist... but anyway it prolly does. If you ask your dentist, then he'll give you the truth.

from personal experience yes, it does all you have to do is put a sprinkle of baking soda on your toothpaste and brush your teeth as you would regularly and after a week or so your teeth will be noticeably whiter.


James P
Yes, it does my friend

softball chickadee
Yes u can also get tooth paste with it already in there like arm in hamer tooth paste. It works but it tast horrible u should brush ur teeth with the baking soda and then use reagular tooth paste to get rid of the taste.

Mr. and Mrs. Q
Yes. I used to do it, and it really works, but I just hate the taste.

You could just get toothpaste with baking soda in it.

It does! Also, I have another remedie that will help you!

Having less-than-brilliant teeth doesn’t have to mean a trip to the dentist or a whitening kit. Try this all-natural remedy instead.

You Will Need -
Baking soda
Hydrogen peroxide
Plastic wrap
Mint flavoring
Cranberry juice

WARNING! - Do not whiten teeth if you have cavities, open sores, gingivitis, or other gum disease.

Step 1:
In a small bowl, mix 2 teaspoons each of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Stir until it is the consistency of regular toothpaste. You may need to add a bit more peroxide.

TIP - Add a drop or two of sugar-free mint flavoring. To get rid of the Hydrogen Peroxide flavoring.

Step 2:
Apply the whitener to a toothbrush and use as if it was regular toothpaste. Leave the whitener on your teeth for at least two minutes.

Step 3:
Rinse thoroughly. Do not swallow the whitener solution.

TIP - Try rinsing with cranberry juice to get rid of the whitener’s taste; it also kills bacteria.

Step 4:
Cover the bowl with the plastic wrap and set the extra whitener aside for another use.

Step 5:
Brush with the peroxide paste no more than once a week. Hydrogen peroxide can cause tissue damage if used too often.

DID YOU KNOW? - Tooth enamel is the hardest tissue in the human body.


Strawberries contain malic acid, which is great for removing stains on your teeth.

You Will Need -
1 ripe strawberry
1/2 tsp baking soda
A soft toothbrush
Dental floss
Hydrogen peroxide
Step 1:
Mash the strawberry with a fork and mix it with the baking soda. The baking soda buffs away stains from coffee, tea, and blueberries that penetrate your enamel over time.

Step 2:
Using a soft toothbrush, apply the mixture to the teeth you want to whiten.

Step 3:
Let the mixture set for five minutes.

Step 4:
Brush your teeth with toothpaste as usual. Floss to get out any seeds from the strawberry.

TIP - Rinsing with a little hydrogen peroxide mixed with water after brushing kills bacteria and whitens teeth.

Step 5:
Rinse your mouth with mouthwash to wash away residual acid. Your teeth will be gleaming and stain-free.

DID YOU KNOW - In the Middle Ages barbers also practiced dentistry.
