I used to be a loyal Crest White Strips girl, until I found out an easier way to whiten my teeth. I swear by this, and my teeth have never been whiter. People constantly ask me if I have my teeth professionally whitened, and I always tell them no. Some people have a hard time believing me! And I’m like….why would I lie about this! Before you go to the cosmetic dentist and pay $$$ for professional teeth whitening, definitely try using baking soda. Not only is brushing your teeth with baking soda great for teeth whitening, it is also kills the bacteria in your mouth that lead to bad breath while removing plaque deposits from the teeth. It is important to remember to only brush with baking soda twice weekly, because it’s properties are so strong, and overuse can strip away some of the enamel on your teeth. All you have to do is wet your toothbrush, and then dip your toothbrush in baking soda, then a paste like substance will form…and then you can brush away for 2 minutes, and rinse. Keep in mind that baking soda does not kill the bacteria that causes cavities, so you will need to brush with your regular toothpaste right after brushing with baking soda. Don’t forget to drink your coffee with a straw..Your welcome!!
