We all know to avoid soft drinks, coffee and tea, and smoking in order to protect our pearly whites. There are many natural foods that can help achieve and maintain that beautiful white smile. They are easy to find in a grocery store, so start incorporating them into your daily diet now.
Cauliflower and Broccoli.
As you chew these vegetables, the florets scrub the surface of teeth, providing a natural mini-brush.
Celery and Carrots.
These fibrous crunchy vegetables scrub off stains from your teeth. The high water content brings out bacteria-washing saliva in force.
Strawberries and Apples.
They contain malic acid, a natural enzyme that removes surface stains from teeth and whitens the enamel.
Yogurt and Chesses.
Dairy foods are full of calcium which strengthens tooth enamel, and insulate teeth from harmful acids in the mouth.
Other foods that are also known to whiten teeth includes onions, pineapples, seeds and nuts. The abrasive texture of most fibrous vegetables and nuts actually strips stains from your enamel, buffing away discoloration and whitening the surface of teeth.
