Ever since I was a kid, I was always taught by my mom to eat strawberries because they're good for the teeth. And she is right all along. Not a lot of people know this, but eating strawberries can bring about a lot of benefits, including whiter teeth!

Hmm, keeping a list of the types of food that help promote whiter teeth is a good idea. It would be better if you also have a list of food that may stain your teeth, so that you can moderate your consumption of those kinds of food. But remember, there is no substitute to the good 'ol habit of brushing and flossing on a regular basis.
