So most of us want whiter teeth…right? And we’ll do most anything to get it…right? Well now try something new, The White Smile Diet. This diet not only helps you shed a few pounds, but it will also help you keep your teeth whiter. These high fiber fruits and vegetables combined with your own saliva will naturally help whiten your teeth.
Another good tip would be to mix a little lemon with your water. The acids in lemon are a natural cleanser and will help strip away surface stain caused from coffee and tea. Drinking water is especially important after drinking coffee to help dilute the dark staining liquid. Try drinking dark liquids through a straw. This will also keep the liquid from hitting your teeth.
Below is a sample diet you can follow. The fruits and vegetables were specifically selected for their fiber content. If you decide to change it up, try keeping these fruits and veggies to get the most benefit.
