I wear clear, plastic retainers on my top and bottom teeth at night when I sleep. If I put baking soda in them before I wear them at night, will it whiten my teeth?

  • Baking soda causes the whitening of teeth but if you use them with retainers overnight it will irritate the gums and at the same time your retainer will also be ruined. You can use baking soda with the tooth paste or can make the paste of baking soda wit hydrogen peroxide and use it as the whitening agent. There are other options available for whitening the teeth like crest whitening strips or the whitening gels. But if you really want to have the quick and the best method then the professional teeth whitening is the best.
