Want pearly white teeth? Try stacking up on these foods.

5 natural ways to make your teeth white and shiny

However, the same way certain foods can cause staining to teeth, there are other foods that can help brighten your teeth as well.

Check out six foods that can help you achieve pearly whites.

1.Apples

Biting and chewing on apples helps to scrub away debris, stains and bacteria from the mouth.

2.Water

Water helps to reduce acidity decreasing the chances of your enamel being damaged (still water that is). Swishing water in your mouth after eating or drinking foods that stain should also help to keep stained teeth at bay.

3.Garlic and Onions

Raw garlic and onions contain compounds known as thiosulfinates and thiosulfonates which help reduce bacteria on teeth thus reducing the production of plaque.

4.Strawberries

Strawberries contain malic acid which is an astringent that acts as a bleaching agent. The malic acid in strawberries helps to keep teeth white.

5.Pineapples

Pineapples contain and enzyme known as bromelain which interrupts the process of teeth staining and discoloration.

6.Carrots

Raw carrots help to increase the amount of saliva in the mouth which in turn helps to clean your teeth. Carrots also contain vitamin A which are responsible for strengthen the tooth enamel.
