Natural and Delicious Tooth Whitening

March 19, 2018



Skip the bleach and try these natural and delicious ways to whiten your teeth.  Mother nature is amazing!


1.  Apples- eating apples can help whiten your teeth because they contain malic acid.  Many whitening toothpastes contain malic acid because of its stain fighting powers.  An apple a day keeps the dentist away!


2.Strawberries- Not only do strawberries contain malic acid but they also have ellagitannins which reduce stain causing bacteria in your mouth!


3.Broccoli- Your mom was right, eat your broccoli!  Crispy broccoli cleans and polishes plus the iron can provide a barrier to stain.


4.  Raisins- Surprise, this chewy, sticky, sweet food helps you produce more saliva.  Saliva neutralizes the pH of your mouth and cleanses the teeth.  Choose cereals with raisins or grab a handful for a healthy after meal treat!


5.  Cheese- Not only delicious but it contains lactic acid which protects against tooth decay.  Don't forget to grab some cheese with that Red Wine!


6.  Water- Need I Say More?!  Not only great for your body, but good for your mouth!  Sip away!
