10 foods for a brighter smile



In addition to being juicy and delicious, strawberries can also help whiten your teeth! They act as a natural tooth whitener and help eliminate bacteria on your teeth and in your mouth. 

To get the maximum whitening benefits, crush a strawberry or two and smear on your teeth. Let sit for a couple of minutes, then rinse your mouth with water. Be sure to wait half an hour before brushing your teeth so that the sugar that's naturally present in strawberries can be removed on its own.
