Using baking soda to whiten teeth?

I am a heavy tea drinker. My dentist recommended using baking soda to help whiten my teeth, but I've read it can be rather abrasive. What has been your experience? Recommendations?

    Your dentist actually -recommended- baking soda? Crazy. Baking soda is abrasive and wears away the enamel of your teeth which will make them substantially more prone to cavities - especially bad if you drink your tea sugared. I saw this new toothpaste out, I can't remember the name of it, but it promises effective whitening without the abrasiveness. It's new, by a major brand, and comes in a blueish-purple box. You can find it at Wal Mart and other such places. I haven't tried it because it's a little out of my preferred price range, but it might be worth a shot!

    I think the company the person above me is talking about is the Crest 3D toothpaste.
