Everyone wants an impressive pair of pearly whites. If you’re looking for an alternative way to whiten your teeth or to keep teeth looking bright between whitening’s, you’re in luck. It turns out you can actually eat your way to a brighter smile! There are certain fruits and veggies out there that naturally remove stains and help whiten tooth enamel.

When it comes to eating foods that will keep your pearly whites in pristine condition, there are a few things you want to keep in mind: chewing and saliva production. Eating fiber-rich fruits and vegetables that require a lot of chewing — like apples, strawberries, watermelon, carrots, broccoli and celery — can all help to brighten your smile.

Eating foods that increase saliva production can also be key to scoring a blindingly white smile. Salvia acts as a natural cleaning agent for the mouth, so noshing on drool-worthy citrus fruits like lemons, limes, grapefruits and oranges can all crank up your saliva production. Plus, apples and strawberries are also known to have a high amount of malic acid, which increases saliva and can even help to brighten tooth enamel.
