#6. Fruit power
Not just veggies, but even fruits are good for your teeth. Pears and apples are the best of the lot. And, yes we already told you about the goodness of strawberries.

Water is not just great for your health, but for your teeth as well. Water keeps your mouth hydrated and reduces acidity too. Sipping water in between your alcholic drinks and while eating dark, pigmented foods will keep your teeth clean by preventing them from staining.
#9. Say no to certain aerated drinks
Aerated drinks work like poison for your teeth. The acid in these drinks robs you of the upper layers of your tooth, which contain calcium and phosphorus, thus weakening your jaw bones. Make sure you avoid black coffee as well because it will stain your teeth, which will steal their shine and make them look dull.
#10. Avoid alcohol and smoking
Smoking is not only bad for your body, but also for your gums and teeth. Yes, drugs, alcohol and smoking can cause major issues to your teeth and gums. They can cause the erosion of the enamel from the teeth that will make them look old. A lot of people who smoke suffer from gum issues in the future and so it is best to avoid smoking, drugs and other forms of tobacco as much as possible to get sparkling white teeth.
