Your Brick NJ Dentist Brightens Your Smile
A perfectly white smile can be a hard thing to maintain. From age and dietary choices made, over time our smile can shift from its vibrant original shade to one that may be less desired. For this reason, your dentist in Brick NJ Dr. Pulido offers treatments such as in-office teeth whitening to help our patients get the bright smile they love back, using the highest strength methods available. We also recognize, however, that it may not always be easy to fit in an appointment for whitening (even though sometimes it can take just one visit) into your busy life. With that in mind, below we have supplied you with information on natural foods you can eat that help whiten and enhance your smile.
To start, it should come as no shock that fruits and vegetables are one of the best methods to improve not only your smile but your whole body health. Apples, for one, can help eliminate bacteria in the mouth, strengthen teeth and gums and whiten the teeth no matter if they are chopped up or eaten whole. They also have a high water content, so assist in cleansing the mouth much in the same way our own saliva does. Vegetables, like broccoli, act as a natural polisher of the teeth with their fibrous nature, and can also help boost enamel health by providing essential nutrients and vitamins. A variety of other fiber-rich, “tougher to eat” veggies and even some nuts and seeds can also work at removing the stains on teeth if eaten regularly.
When it comes to maintaining a healthy mouth and protecting the teeth, calcium-rich foods and beverages are the way to go. Add some milk, cheese, and chicken to your diet to see the benefits of calcium in the mouth, and not just in your taste buds.
By maintaining a healthy diet, rich in fruits, vegetables and the essential vitamins and nutrients, you can be providing yourself with a naturally vibrant and healthy smile while eating deliciously.
