How To Eat Your Way To Whiter Teeth (No Health Food Shop Required)

By  | 


Unless you were blessed with the world's most perfect set of nashers or, you know, you have a REALLY good dentist who gave you free check ups on the sly, chances are you wouldn't mind your teeth being at least a couple of shades whiter. Simon Cowell, we advise stop reading from this point on.

While there are toothpastes that claim to give you a whiter smile in 'just one use*' (*but not really), and, of course, there's always the option of getting your teeth professionally lasered by a dental professional, chances are you don't have the money or the patience to get that gleaming tooth look. 

However, we're here to tell you that there are foods we guarantee you're already eating that are scientifically proven to give you whiter teeth as you chow down on them. Yes, you have our permission to fist pump. 

We've done our homework and found the best treats that'll enhance the natural white undertones of your teeth, and help drive away the stains we're all guilty of building up over the years. 

So, put down that coffee (or glass of red wine, depending on your beverage preference and where you are in the world at this point in time), and grab yourself one of these foods to gnaw on instead…

Thanks to their crisp skin and firm inner texture, biting into an apple helps to remove any plaque build up on your teeth. Try eating one after lunch if you don't fancy brushing your teeth in the office loos (shudders).

Unlike other berries, strawbs act as a natural astringent that helps to remove surface discolouration from the enamel of your teeth. What better excuse do you need to indulge in champagne and strawberries this eve?!
