Baking soda is a common household product that has many uses around the home, from eliminating smells to cleaning carpets. Now, baking soda can be found in many toothpastes and teeth-whitening products. Using it to remove stains from teeth is common practice. But does baking soda whiten teeth, really? It does an excellent job at removing surface stains, but you should proceed with caution to prevent damage to your enamel.
you are more likely to erode your Enamel with Baking soda,leading to increased sensitivity.Visit a cosmetic dentist for a consultation and guidance about bleaching procedures.
Dear Practo User,
Using baking soda is not advisable. As you mentioned, a yellow layer is deposited over your teeth, you need to visit a dentist nearby to get a thorough checkup done. This deposit could b plaque.

Visit a dentist and get scaling (professional cleaning) of your teeth done. You can also get whitening done.
Hi..... Brush your teeth after you eat. Keep a toothbrush at work to use after eating. Brush using a fluoride-containing toothpaste at least twice a day, especially after meals.....
Floss at least once a day. Proper flossing removes food particles and plaque from between your teeth, .... Schedule regular dental checkups. See your dentist on a regular basis — generally once or twice a year — to have your teeth or dentures examined and cleaned.
yes, as a home remedy for teeth whitening, you can add a pinch of baking soda in water and rinse with it. or you can also apply strawberry crush on your teeth and leave it for sometime. you should consult a dentist and get a good scaling and polishing done. brush twice a day, maintain proper brushing technique, rinse after every meal and floss regularly.
