Does salt make your teeth whiter?

Report as

White Iodised salt and baking soda both make your teeth white.

My family has used these two together for years and they do whiten teeth.

You can just use salt or you can just use baking soda or you can use them together.

You have to be sure they are dissolved in water or you can hurt the enamel on your teeth, but they work beautifully to remove plaque and to whiten your teeth and sanitize your mouth as well.

Tastes nasty though.

True, but it does not contain any chemicals, alkilizes your mouth to help fight infections and whaitens teeth all at the same time.

To improve the taste, I like to mix my salt and baking soda in with my toothpaste. This way it tastes better and still gets the job done.

Yes I mentioned that idea to someone else about the baking soda. Truth is, I was not aware that salt had any whitening properties and using salt alone just does not sound healthy to the teeth for me. I wouldn't ever use it because of that.

beastman2 - the best way to do it is to wet your toothbrush and then dip the bristle tips in the baking soda. The only problem is that it doesn't taste good. I would use my favorite toothpaste and add baking soda to that.

according to chemistry we also know that sodium fluoride is also a salt and this in fact makes teeth brown when in excess.i don't know which kind of salt you are talking about but if it's the ordinary salt... nope.
