Can Baking Soda and Lemon be Used for Teeth Whitening?

Posted OnMay 25, 2016

Most people desire whiter teeth. While some home remedies can be useful, combining baking soda with lemon juice is definitely not one of them. Baking soda is an abrasive powder that removes the stains on teeth by scrubbing away the smooth, shiny enamel and making it rough. Lemon is acidic and therefore also erodes the surface of your teeth. Although your teeth may look whiter after using this method, it is not good for you. It will cause your teeth to become prone to stains due to the roughness of the enamel. Regular use of this will cause sensitivity and more serious problems.

The safest way to whiten your teeth is to visit a dentist who can recommend either in-office whitening or a home whitening program which use safe products, certified by reputed organizations such as the American Dental Association.
