This is NOT a good method.  I'm a dental assistant.  Using anything this abrasive can ruin the enamel on your teeth which can lead to some not so nice things like sensitivity or even cavities.

To whiten teeth I think one should go for whitening toothpaste. That's a better option rather then using salt.

Using sea salt is an excellent way to whiten your teeth. Use it twice a week instead of using toothpaste. Rinse out your mouth well after just so your don't swallow it. As with anything, check with your dentist first in case there is a reason why you shouldn't try this method.
