I need some direction on how to whiten teeth with baking soda?

In brief: Bleaching teeth

Baking soda is an abrasive, so it doesn't really whiten teeth, rather, it can remove some superficial stains like coffee, tea, smoking etc.

I agree with the statement above, and would also add, baking soda can abraid tooth structure causing sensitivity to cold and loss of gum tissue. Overall, take it easy with baking soda, maybe go with hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide for a better, safer result.
