It is pretty tricky to keep our teeth white. So many products we consume daily are damaging our teeth and gums, making our precious smile lose its sparkle.

If you want to bring back that glowing whiteness of your teeth, but you don’t want to waste money on numerous teeth-whitening products (that usually don’t work), make sure you introduce these 7 amazing foods to your everyday diet.

1. Broccoli

These high-fiber, coarse super-foods will do wonders for your teeth color as they act as scrubbing agents for your teeth. Just make sure you eat them whole. If you can eat them raw, even better!

2. Celery And Carrots

These crunchy veggies have high water content, which makes them great for your overall health, but these bad boys will also whiten your teeth by washing away food debris from your (dirty) mouth.

3. Oranges

Don’t use oranges just to make your freshly squeezed juice. It is the flesh of these sweet, delicious vitamin bombs that will help neutralize the acid in your mouth. Eat oranges daily and say goodbye to decay.

4. Apples And Pears

That nice crunchy sound you hear when you bite these fruits is actually the sound of your gums getting healthy and your teeth whitened. Eating these delicious fruits helps neutralize the acid in your mouth, while it also increases your saliva production, and we all know saliva helps us wash away all the bacteria in our mouth.

5. Milk And Yogurt

Yogurt and milk contain lactic acid, but it is the enamel-fortifying mineral calcium that makes these dairy products perfect for whitening your teeth. And they are delicious!

6. Cheese

Good news for us cheese lovers! Like milk and yogurt, cheese is full of calcium, which strengthens your teeth and gums. Hard cheese also contains casein – a milk protein that reduces the loss of minerals from tooth enamel.

7. Seeds And Nuts

Seeds and nuts have the abrasive texture that helps clean your teeth and remove surface stains. If you want your teeth whitened, make sure you consume the following:

  • sunflower seeds
  • almonds
  • walnuts
  • cashews.
