A 33-year-old male asked:
How often can i use baking soda & lemon paste to brush my teeth so they can naturally whiten? is it safe? how about gargling mixture with water?

Do not use: I answered this in another one of your posts. The acid in the lemon will soften the enamel and the baking soda (which is abrasive) will then wear it away. Why not just use dental whitening products to accomplish your goals? They are peroxide based, which is natural.
