Great Food For Great Smiles

Teeth And Eating: Best Foods For A Great Smile

Everyone wants a great smile. A great smile is one of the first things people notice, and the biggest part of a great smile is vibrant, healthy, pearly white teeth. And while there are dozens of whitening products and solutions to help you acquire a dazzling smile, let's look at a simpler, more natural way to help you get the same effect.

Just as there are certain foods and drinks that are good for your overall health, there are many that are especially good for your smile. Here's a list of foods and drinks that will help you acquire, and maintain, the bright white smile of your dreams.

Fresh Fruit: Fresh fruit is probably the very best choice you can make for dental health. Fresh fruit stimulates saliva, which decreases the amount of acid in your mouth. Further, saliva helps wash away unwanted food particles.

Apples are probably the best fruit to eat for healthy teeth. Not only do they provide the benefits described above, but they also have contain a natural cleansing abrasive that basically helps polish your teeth.

A quick note ... we emphasize fresh fruit here, because dried fruit often has the adverse effect. Dried fruit usually has a fructose additive, and can easily stick in between your teeth. Choose fresh fruit instead.

Carrots And Celery:

These two fiber filled vegetables are excellent for your teeth. While they don't contain the natural abrasives of, say, the apple, they serve to stimulate the gums, which is crucial for dental health.

Sugarless Gum:

The main benefit of sugarless gum is that it serves as a saliva stimulant. The more saliva in your mouth, the less chance of unwanted food particles which may lead to cavities and gum disease. Further, sugarless gum won't harm tooth enamel. Publisher's Caution: Most sugarless gums contain artificial sweeteners that can be harmful to your health - look for stevia based gum.


You knew we'd mention water, didn't you? Well, it's true, water is good for your health on so many different levels, but particularly for oral health. Water flushes away food particles, and it often contains flouride which helps keep enamel strong. Tea is another excellent beverage for your teeth, as it contains flouride as well.

Of course, consuming specific foods and drinks are only a part of an overall strategy for optimal oral health. A good diet, proper dental care, and good brushing habits weigh in heavily. But why not give yourself an extra advantage? Incorporate these food and drink products into your daily regimen, and enjoy your best smile possible.
