List Of Foods That Help Whiten Your Teeth Naturally

Unless you grew up with parents who took care of your teeth very well, taught you how to take care of your teeth and foods (and drinks) that cause damages to your teeth, you may have one or two problems with your teeth as you grow up. This may be occasional toothache, enamel erosion, decay and discoloration of the teeth.

Even if your parents took care of your teeth very well, as we age, our teeth tend to lose some of its whiteness and starting having discolouration. The once white teeth may now become slightly yellow due to foods that we have exposed it to. Several foods are very bad for the teeth and some of these foods go as far as wearing out the enamel of your teeth. This makes you feel some pain when you drink cold water or brush in the morning.

Let us leave that and go to the topic of the day. In as much as we have to avoid eating foods such as beverages like tea, dark sodas, and fruit juices that stain teeth to stop further discoloration, there are foods we should eat too to help us remove the stains already there naturally.

Foods That Can Whiten Your Teeth For You – Home Remedy

1. Strawberries

Strawberries are red in color but they have a component that helps your teeth get whiter. This component is called Malic acid, it acts as a natural astringent to remove surface tooth discoloration. You may want to start eating more of this. Recall that we also told you that strawberries and sone foods together can serve as anti-aging foods too.

Some people even use this fruit by mashing it up and leaving on their teeth for 5 minutes before rinsing it away. This gives the teeth more exposure time to the malic acid but that means wasting the strawberry by not eating it.

  1. Hello,
    Kindly write professionally. Your last sentence “… or whatever they call it” is hardly befitting of a writer. Have you researched to find out if dentists are helpful or not? And why such careless words in your writing?

    1. You clearly misunderstood the whole thing. The “whatever they call it” is in reference to the word scaling. “Scaling or whatever they call” because I was not so sure that’s the name everyone calls it. Whatever they call it or your dentist calls it.

      Why would someone even recommend seeing a dentist when he doesn’t think they are helpful?

  2. @ Glory- For me, I donot appreciate your criticism aas regards the write up, the most important thing is the knowledge that was passed, the use of the sentence” scaling or whatever it is called” by the author doesn’t depict that he or she hasn’t written professionally and for the records, I would suggest we give credit to the author for painstakingly trying to educate us all and improve our knowledge rather than paying attention to trivial issues. Many thanks
