Eat These 4 Foods for Whiter Teeth

Teeth whitening solutions have become enormously popular in recent years. Our office offers powerful, customized whitening solutions such as Zoom! and KöR whitening systems. Large oral care companies such as Crest, Colgate, and Rembrandt sell take-home whitening strips that can be purchased at nearly any Wal-mart or Target. While we certainly recommend using these solutions to gain whiter teeth, there are some foods you can eat to maintain your white teeth, regardless of whether the beautiful sheen of white comes naturally or through cosmetic means. Here are the best foods to eat for whiter teeth, according to WebMD:

1. Celery/Carrots/Apples: Crunchy fruits and vegetables aren’t just good for your cells. They also trigger your mouth to produce saliva, which helps digest food and wash away particles that can stain teeth.

2. Strawberries: These delicious, bright red berries contain an enzyme called Malic Acid that acts like bleach to brighten your smile.

3. Broccoli: Raw broccoli florets act as a natural brush that scrub your teeth after eating, decreasing the number of staining particles that exist from other foods.

4. Baking Soda: Baking soda has long been known as a natural tooth whitening agent. Often found in natural toothpaste, this ingredient can be rubbed on your teeth after eating to give your teeth the natural white color you’ve been looking for.

We all want whiter teeth. These foods can help us get the smile we want, while also enhancing our diet and overall level of health, a win-win for everyone.
