Baking soda is a natural bleaching agent and can cleanse any stains. Using it for effectively clearing the tooth from stains is a good idea. Though it’s a mild coarse product, it helps in cleaning your tooth and making it shine.
People used to use sesame oil and other oils for oil pulling then, but now, you can use coconut oil for the same, which has a multitude of benefits, and zero side effects. When there is no harm, it’s not wrong to give it a try.
Hence we see few toothpaste brands that contain baking soda as a component in them, and using them will help in whitening teeth over a period of time. You can do this approximately thrice a week. Mix a teaspoon of soda, with double the quantity of water and brush them generally.
Fruits like Strawberry and Pineapple:
Strawberry has malic acid, which is eligible to clear off stains from the teeth. Combining it with baking soda will make your teeth shine, using it over a period of time, like for a month at a stretch. One disadvantage of this is they are known only to clear on the external layer, and not into the internal layer. Pineapple has an enzyme that is said to have whitening properties. You can rub the fruit against your teeth and get the benefits or just chew them well, and let the magic happen over a few days’ time. These methods are safe and effective to some extent, say 60%. Worth giving a try!
