Baking soda is an abrasive powder that removes the stains on teeth by scrubbing away the smooth, shiny enamel and making it rough. Please use any regular toothpaste. Also why would you prefer baking soda over toothpaste?

No it's not recommended to use any such thing because it will abrade your enamel layer and leading to exposure of dentin which causes sensitivity.
