August 13, 2014

While it’s certainly an important part of dental hygiene, brushing your teeth isn’t the only way to a whiter smile! Here’s a quick guide on how to eat your way to a whiter smile:

Lean Meats

Deli Meat, smoked chicken breast

Lean meats like chicken will help keep your smile white and beautiful. These meats contain ingredients like calcium and phosphorus, which help promote the health of tooth enamel and keep your smile bright and white!

Nuts

Whiter smile with nuts

Not everyone is a meat eater, and nuts are a great substitute to lean meats to keep your smile healthy!

Dairy

Cheese, Milk, Eggs for a whiter smile

Milk, cheese, and yogurt are high in calcium, which help keep teeth healthy, and in turn, white! Hard cheeses help even more by removing other food particles!

Fruits and Veggies

Crunchy fruits and veggies

Did you know that the production of saliva helps neutralize acids from foods like tomatoes, wines, or citrus fruits? Well, it’s true and it’s why you should be eating plenty of firm and crunchy fruits and vegetables! Fruits and vegetables like apples, celery, carrots, among others help stimulate saliva production as they require a lot of chewing.
