Bright, White Teeth? Here’s What to Eat!


There are many options for whitening teeth, and a variety of products that promise quick, safe results. While many over-the-counter options exist, ranging from strips to toothpastes, making a few simple changes to your regular diet can help give you the pearly whites you want.



Foods that Whiten Teeth

There are many safe ways to whiten teeth, but using natural foods that benefit your health in multiple ways is a great option. Here are some foods you can add to your plate to keep your smile shining bright:

  • Strawberries – The malic acid in these tasty summer berries can remove surface stains from teeth. Add them to salads, desserts or your morning cereal to help keep teeth white.
  • Nuts and seeds – The hard texture and slight abrasion that chewing nuts and seeds causes can help rub surface stains and plaque off teeth.
  • Apples – The hardness of this popular fruit can help strengthen your gums, while the water content will increase saliva production in your mouth, helping to neutralize colonies of bacteria that cause plaque.
  • Broccoli – This crunchy vegetable is a health powerhouse, and it won’t stain teeth! Instead of staining, the florets help scrub the surface of teeth while you chew.
  • Oranges – While the acidity of this citrus fruit can wear away tooth enamel, making teeth appear whiter, they may also weaken teeth. We recommend eating them in moderation.
