A bright smile can light up the room, and change the atmosphere in that one moment. But many people have accumulated stains on their teeth that make them self-conscious and embarrassed to flash their less-than-megawatt smile. Diligent attention to dental hygiene and whitening toothpaste can help remove a good portion of these stains, but for resistant stains on crowns, you might need a helping hand. Luckily, there is an ingredient in your kitchen pantry with the remarkable power to help remove those stains.
Wet the brushes of the soft-bristled toothbrush.
Dip the head of the toothbrush into the baking soda, making sure that there is an even coat of the soda on the bristles.
Brush the baking soda onto your stained crowns, using the mirror to make sure to cover all the stained areas.
Let the baking soda sit on your crowns for two to five minutes.
Brush the mixture off of your crowns, spitting it into the sink and rinsing your mouth thoroughly with water.
