Foods to Eat for Whiter Teeth

green and red healthy food

What you eat and drink can have a big impact on the health of your teeth. You probably know that sticky, sugary foods cause decay, and that coffee, wine, and tea can cause stains—but do you know which foods and beverages are actually good for your teeth?

Nuts, chicken, cheese, and dairy products are all excellent food choices, as they provide the minerals necessary for maintaining tooth enamel. Enamel is the thin natural coating on your teeth that is essential for preventing damage and decay. Crunchy fruits and vegetables, including apples, celery, and carrots, are great for boosting saliva production and washing away stain-causing food particles. As far as beverages go, fluoridated water is the best choice. To help keep your teeth white and healthy, it’s important to limit sugary or stain-causing foods and beverages.  

For more tips on how to keep your teeth in good shape, schedule an appointment at Oak Creek Dental Care of Columbus. You can call (888) 751-3514 to learn more about our routine checkups and emergency dental services.
