The pursuit of perfect teeth

We all know the foods that can darken your smile but what about the ones that can help naturally whiten it?

The pursuit of the perfect smile to get those pearly whites extra white can come right from your kitchen.

Apples, celery, and carrots work by scrubbing your teeth clean with their crunchiness.

And how about preventing staining? Try snacking on a cube of cheese before drinking your wine. The cheese coats the teeth with a film that guards against stains.

"They stimulate saliva in your mouth.  The saliva will wash away plaque and discoloration in your teeth." said Dr. Nancy Rosen, DDS.

Dentists even say rubbing the white part of an orange peel on your teeth can help remove tartar accumulation.
