There’s whitening toothpaste, whitening treatment such as ZOOM whitening, whitening strips, but there’s also a good amount of delicious foods that may help whiten your teeth.

Below are 5 foods that have some interesting components to help with teeth whitening!

STRAWBERRIES

If you get a sweet batch of them, you’ll probably not want to share any. On top of the sweet flavor strawberries have something called malic acid. This is an all natural component of strawberries that removes surface tooth discoloration. Throw some strawberries in that morning cereal, or enjoy them with some cheesecake and you’ll have that malic acid    working in your favor!

PINEAPPLE.

Pineapples can not only make most smoothies super tasty, it’s good for teeth whitening too! Pineapples are one of the only foods that contain an enzyme called bromelain. Bromelain can help with removing plaque from the surface of your teeth and it serves as a natural stain remover too! Grab some Tajin, sprinkle it on some pineapple and enjoy healthier and whiter teeth!

HARD CHEESE

Yes all that delicious cheese can actually help with your teeth! Those hard cheeses that you may come across on a cheese plate contain high levels of actic acid and calcium. This is what ends up helping keep your teeth strong. A little extra help that it does is icnrease saliva production which washes away extra debris between your teeth. So grab some crackers, some wine, and some cheese and help your teeth be as healthy as can be!

CELERY

It may not be your kid’s favorite but celery can actually help keep your teeth clean slowly but surely. The interesting thing about celery is that the crunch factor that it has is what helps scrub your teeth clean. Celery also to eliminate bad breath bacteria in the long run. We recommend it with some creamy peanut butter as mid-day snack to crunch away that bacteria!

BROCCOLI

Broccoli is a very beneficial food for so many aspects of your oral health! It has the benefit of reducing bloating in your body which includes inflammation in your mouth. The little green trees also contain good amounts of iron and can polish your teeth, this will definitely lead to that whiter smile. Steam some up, slice a lemon, sprinkle some salt and enjoy a whiter smile!
