Words of Wisdom No.6 – Brush your teeth with baking soda once a week
While most of us only reach for the baking soda when we’re cooking up sweet treats, this common ingredient can actually be used to create a brighter smile. This is one 1950s housewife trick that still remains popular today. For shiny white teeth, using baking soda once a week can give you a perfect smile.
Baking soda can be sprinkled on top of regular toothpaste or used on its own simply by dipping a wet toothbrush into a small container of baking soda. Brush the teeth in small, circular motions for two minutes before rinsing. The particles in the baking soda work to scrub stains and plaque from the teeth for a brighter smile. To make this trick a habit, keep a small container of baking soda in the cabinet next to your toothpaste as a reminder.
Adding this bright smile trick to your weekly routine will give you the clean, shiny smile you’ve always wanted. Keep it up over the course of a few weeks and you’ll see a noticeable difference in the look of your smile. Be sure to recommend this trick to your friends when they notice your beautiful smile, too!
Whether you’re preparing for a special occasion or just want a perfect smile, taking care of your teeth is an important part of your daily routine. Using braces or Invisalign can help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. While your teeth are being straightened, you can still use this trick to keep them shiny and bright. We recommend using baking soda to brush your teeth once a week to keep them clean and bright for your best smile.
