The Most Delicious Way to Whiten Your Teeth: Strawberries

Want whiter teeth? Try strawberries! According to Dr. Irwin Smigel, president of the American Society for Dental Aesthetics, these summer treats are loaded with malic acid, a natural astringent to remove surface tooth discoloration.

Getting your daily dose this time of year is simple and delicious with this farmers market staple. There are 101 ways to eat strawberries, but here at your favorite East Side Milwaukee dental office, we like to toss spinach, feta cheese and strawberries in a raspberry vinaigrette for a light but filling lunch. You can use a store-bought dressing or make your own with one of our favorite recipes.

1 tablespoon strawberry jam
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil

Whisk together the strawberry jam, vinegar, and olive oil until thoroughly combined. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
