We all know some of the bad foods that will harm our teeth over time including candy, soda, and sugar. The good news is that cosmetic dentists are aware of some healthy foods that can actually help to keep your teeth in good shape. These foods will not cancel out the need for oral care and you still may need some cosmetic dentistry, but healthy food can make cosmetic procedures easier and help them to last longer. Here is a list of teeth-friendly foods according to the article “Diet for Healthy Teeth Includes Beneficial Foods for Oral Health” by the Cosmetic Dentistry News website:

These foods either help cleanse the teeth and get your saliva flowing or they are packed with minerals and vitamins crucial for oral health. Through proper oral care you can feel confident that you are doing the best you can to help your smile be as healthy as it can be.
