Eat Your Way to Whiter Teeth! Part 2

There are many foods that can stain your teeth, but there are also many foods that can whiten them!

Most people already know that many foods and drinks can leave you with tooth discoloration, but what many people don’t know is that there are many foods that can leave you with a whiter smile! When you take advantage of Zoom Whitening in Texarkana, the last thing that you want is for your diet to ruin your white smile. Check out our last blog to learn about which foods can whiten your teeth, and keep reading to learn about more foods that leave your pearly whites bright:

#4. Apples

Apples are crisp and delicious, and when you bite into them, they help to scrub your teeth clean. Apples are also a good source of malic acid, which is actually an ingredient in many toothpastes that acts as an astringent. Malic acid also helps to remove stains and increases the production of saliva.

#5. Pineapple

Pineapples are so sweet that they couldn’t possibly be good for your teeth, right? Wrong! Pineapple is the only food that contains bromelain, which is a compound that has both cleansing and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, bromelain is an ingredient in many stain-fighting toothpastes!

#6. Cheese

Who needs another reason to eat cheese? Well, now you have one! Cheese is a good source of lactic acid and calcium, which not only help to keep the enamel in your teeth strong, but also help to whiten your teeth! Additionally, when you chew on cheese, it increases the production of saliva, which helps to wash away bacteria that can lead to decay and stains.

Keep your teeth white and beautiful by including teeth-whitening foods in your diet and visiting our dentist on a regular basis!
