A Tasty Way to Whiten Your Teeth

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.
