Natural Teeth Whiteners
Natural Bleaching Agent: Strawberries
Strawberries are powerful teeth whiteners that contain both an astringent and vitamin C. The astringent in strawberries effectively aids in the removal of surface stains while vitamin C whitens teeth by clearing away plaque.
Natural Toothbrush: Apples
A crunchy apple acts like a toothbrush as you chew it. The process of chewing an apple removes excess food and bacteria from your mouth while scrubbing away surface stains. Apples also contain malic acid, a chemical used in teeth whitening products, which helps dissolve stains.
Natural Mouthwash: Raisins
Raisins help to keep your teeth white by inducing saliva production. An increased level of saliva naturally helps to rinse away plaque.
