Pulse.com.gh brings you foods that will whiten your teeth naturally.

1.Strawberries

A paste made of strawberries and baking soda has been known for years to reveal a naturally whiter smile. The malic acid in the bright fruit acts as a whitener from mother nature, but brushing afterwards is a must since the berry also contains sugars.

2. Apples

Apples also contain high levels of malic acid. The act of biting and chewing on this crunchy fruit gently scrubs away debris, stains, and bacteria from your mouth. It is cleansing exercise for the mouth. The natural scrubbing action washes particles from the teeth and keeps them white.

3.Cheese

Being devoid of color, most cheeses will not stain teeth. They also contain calcium and phosphorus, which help strengthen teeth and gums through re-mineralization. Those properties also help in insulating teeth from harmful acids in the mouth.

4.Broccoli

Broccoli is high in fiber, and eating lots of fiber helps reduce inflammation in your mouth (along with the rest of your body). Eating crisp raw broccoli can help clean and polish your teeth and, according to research in the European Journal of Dentistry, the iron in broccoli has the added benefit of providing a wall of protection for your teeth against the enamel-degrading acid that’s produced by bacteria. This helps prevent stains and cavities.

5.Oranges

Eating tart fruits such as oranges and pineapples may cause the mouth to produce more saliva, which washes teeth clean naturally. Beware of using lemons directly on teeth, because too much acidity can damage teeth.
