Whiten your teeth by eating apples

They are that indispensable to you – you highly need them to stimulate you, to get you going and to brighten up your day. One of the consequences of this indulgence: over a period of time you will develop stains on your teeth, which will dull your smile.

The mildly acidic and astringent quality of apples cleanses and brightens your teeth. Chewing foods like apples, celery, sugarcane and carrots, actually help scrub away stubborn stains over time. It is almost like brushing your teeth with a nature’s toothpaste; a toothpaste which not only acts as a teeth whitener from the outside but also promises good dental health from the inside. Being a tea/coffee drinker, if you weren’t consuming these foods earlier, do so now. You will begin to notice the cleansing effect of these foods on your teeth right away.

However do not forget to rinse your mouth with water after eating apples. If you don’t get a chance to do so then at least drink some water to rid your teeth of the sugar or acid that it may have deposited. Alternatively, try a stick of sugarless gum. This chewing action stimulates flow of saliva. Saliva neutralizes acids produced by plaque bacteria and helps clear the mouth of food that plaque bacteria usually feast on. So chew gum and smile on.

    Eat as many apples and lemons as you can - this is not the best choice you have: firstly, this will damage your stomach and then to your teeth. Too much acid eventually destroy your teeth enamel. Think to something else, buy an over the counter product, you'll see some moderate effects but at least wouldn't harm to yourself.

    After eating an apple, it's still important to brush your teeth. The apples still have sugar and acid in them which can damage the teeth. Leaving the sugar and acid on the teeth will reverse the benefits that eating an apple gave the teeth.
