Study Shows Fruit and Baking Soda Combination Not An Effective Tooth Whitener.

Despite YouTube videos and even the Dr. Oz Show claiming otherwise, a study published by a University of Iowa dental researcher assert that mixing fruits such as strawberries and baking soda will not whiten teeth. Indeed, according to the American Dental Association, any tooth whitening substance must contain the “key ingredients” hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide.  You really want something that penetrates into your teeth and breaks down the stain molecules.  If you don’t have that, you get just the superficial, and not the whitening from the inside, which was what you really want.
