5 Tips for Going on a White-Teeth Diet

Everyone wants bright white teeth and a winning smile, but sometimes the foods we choose to eat make this difficult or impossible. Your tooth enamel is one of the hardest parts of your body, but it still needs careful treatment to stay healthy. A proper, tooth-conscious diet will help immensely. Here are some tips on choosing the right foods for better teeth.

Curb Snacking

A habit of snacking between meals only increases the chances of exposing your teeth to foods that could damage them. Sugary snacks can cause tooth decay, and even hard foods like seeds that are otherwise healthy can speed erosion of tooth enamel if eaten consistently. If you have to take the edge off your hunger, try something like citrus fruits, apples, or dried non-sweetened. Fruits can help clean away other food remnants without doing harm.

Tooth Care

Good tooth hygiene is important to strong, healthy tooth enamel. Drink milk for calcium, and plenty of water after your meals. Chew sugarless gum to help clean your teeth. Try never to skip flossing and brushing. If you have permanent damage to your teeth, such as cracked or capped teeth that never seem to be white enough, ask a clinic like Malony Dental & Cosmetic about new cosmetic dentistry procedures that might correct the problem.

Major Stain Sources

These are coffee, tea, red wine, pomegranates, dark acidic spices like curry, and dark berries like blueberries, blackberries, or dark raspberries. While there are other foods that can help keep your teeth white, those above should be removed from your diet if you want healthy white teeth. The good news is that chocolate is still on the menu, so long as it’s dark chocolate that’s low in sugar.

Clean as You Eat

Some foods that actually scrub your teeth as you eat include crunchy raw veggies. Try adding a plate of sliced or whole carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, or celery to your meals. Hard cheeses will have the same effect of removing food particles and stimulating saliva. Fruit lovers might like raw, unsweetened strawberries, pineapples, apples, peaches, or oranges as a healthy, tooth-cleaning dessert.

Foods to Avoid

Any foods that are high in sugar should avoided, especially soft drinks and candy. The acid in carbonated drinks can do additional damage. Many commercial fruit drinks are also high in sugars. These eat away at tooth enamel and leave tiny pits where tooth decay and staining can take hold. Be sure to check your nutritional labels for sugar content. Starchy foods like white bread, rice, potatoes, and pasta can also lead to high acid levels in the mouth.

Like any diet, a nutritional plan for your teeth may call for sacrificing some of the foods you love. But stronger, healthier, brighter teeth will be worth it.

Sure, one will need a special diet to keep his teeth white. But normal teeth aren't perfectly white. Thus teeth whitening Orange Park FL can be a very effective way of lightening the natural color of the teeth without removing any of the tooth surfaces. It cannot make a complete color change, but it may lighten the existing shade.
