Strawberries have malic acid, which can work as an astringent on teeth to help lighten them, says Dr. Irwin Smigel from the American Society for Dental Aesthetics.But be careful to only do this occasionally as long-term acid exposure can damage teeth. Seeds and nuts also help rub plaque and stains off the surface of teeth, says Dr. Matthew Messina, also from The Dental Association. They’re also a good snack, which contain protein and healthy fats. Messina also says that broccoli helps whiten teeth because the florets scrub the surface of teeth, giving them a brief and natural midday brush.
Another tooth super food to improve dental health is drinking some milk or eating some yogurt. Messina says the high calcium content strengthens teeth, making your enamel healthier and whiter.
A good at home remedy I’ve tried a couple times to whiten my teeth is mixing 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide and just enough water to make a paste. Use this home remedy just a few times a month as it can erode enamel if done too often.
To make your teeth seem instantly whiter, try a bright red lipstick, which brightens the appearance. Looking for a good lip plumper home remedy? Try cinnamon, which makes the blood flow to the lips, and plumps your lips right up.
