Tooth Whitening: Beyond Baking Soda

At Smiles by Shields, we’re your Jacksonville dentist to help you achieve and maintain beautiful, healthy teeth.

If you are looking for safe teeth whitening in Jacksonville, FL, contact us today. If you are searching for a quick way to remove stains from the surface of your teeth, you may find the solution sitting in your kitchen cabinet.

NewHealthGuide.Org explains how baking soda can be used with other household goods like plain water, hydrogen peroxide, or toothpaste as a home remedy to brighten your smile. When it comes in contact with water, baking soda releases free radicals that attack teeth stains and help remove discoloration caused from a variety of food sources and tobacco. It also serves as an abrasive to help remove surface stains. Along with helping to whiten the teeth, brushing with baking soda helps dislodge plaque built up on the teeth that may be causing that yellowish discoloration.

Even though baking soda can be used to whiten your teeth, please keep in mind that it is not a permanent fix to whiter teeth, and the results may only be temporary. The results you will receive cannot compare to the bleaching effect that you will get from our office. Our tooth bleaching process is simple, safe, and effective.

If you are seeking a way to brighten your smile, give Smiles by Shields a call today to schedule an appointment with your Jacksonville dentist Dr. Tiffany Shields.
