Everyone wants whiter teeth but sometimes brushing and flossing alone is not enough to fight stains. Although there are many products that can help you achieve a whiter smile, some are not FDA approved and can cause painful tooth sensitivity.
If you are looking for a natural way to whiten your teeth, simply add more strawberries to your diet. It’s a safe and delicious way for a white, healthy smile.
According to Dr. Irwin Smigel, president of the American Society for Dental Aesthetics, strawberries contain malic acid that acts as a natural astringent to help remove surface stains and discoloration. If you mix a strawberry with ½ teaspoon of baking soda, you can create your own natural tooth whitener.
Strawberries also contain antioxidants that help to reduce bacteria in your mouth and vitamin C which helps to clear away plaque and reduces inflammation in your gums, preventing periodontal disease.
Give your taste buds a sweet treat by adding strawberries to any meal. Rev up your morning by slicing them into your cereal, sprinkling them on a salad, or give your parfait some pizazz!
For a brighter, healthier smile, sweeten up your diet with mouthwatering strawberries.
