5 Foods That Whiten Your Teeth

 

 

A healthy bright smile is an attractive smile. It boosts your self confidence and enhances your mood.  But for some, getting teeth whitened professionally at a dental office might be a costly option even though it's a faster and the most effective way to do it.  However, keeping your teeth look bright and healthy doesn't have to cost a bomb.  Today we are going to show you 5 kind of foods that you can eat or use to help whitening your teeth without digging deep into your pocket. 

 

Strawberries

Strawberry! Who would expect that?  Well, not only this antioxidant rich fruit is delicious and good for your health, it can also whiten your teeth! Strawberry contains an enzyme called malic acid which acts an astringent that removes stain. Malic acid is being used in toothpaste and mouthwashes. So on your next grocery trip, remember to grab some extra strawberries! You can either mash it up and put it on top of your toothpaste or make your own toothpaste by combining the smashed up strawberry with baking soda!  Remember to rinse it away with water and don't let it sit for too long. Like any kind of acid, it might erode your teeth if overused. Once a month is recommended.
