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

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.
