She has a smile that we all envy and now the actress has finally spilt the beans on her beautiful teeth
Julia Roberts has claimed the title of ‘best smile in Hollywood’ for years and is a source of inspiration to all of us who want beautifully perfect and white teeth like hers. Now the actress has finally succumbed to our thirst for knowledge and has revealed that she owes her gorgeous pearly-whites to – wait for it – baking soda!
A tip passed down from her grandfather, Julia has used baking soda for years, and her grandfather only ever had one cavity in his entire lifetime.
The run-down on baking soda on teeth
At Hyde Park Dental Care in Sydney, we understand the need for white teeth as it inspires confidence and radiates success. While baking soda can indeed aid in whitening up the teeth, it can also have a detrimental effect, too.
Baking soda is quite an abrasive powder and can wear down the tooth enamel if overly used. Once gone, tooth enamel will not grow back and will allow the dentin (thin enamel that sits inside the tooth) to show through, which is actually a darker colour than that of normal tooth enamel. If used incorrectly, baking soda can actually darken your teeth, not whiten them.
