The famous Florida Strawberry Festival is in town! The Strawberry Festival will feature famous performers and run for a total of 10 days, from March 2nd to March 12th. Every year, the Sunshine State celebrates one of its most popular fruits in the spring.
Strawberries have a reputation for helping to naturally whiten your teeth. Is this true? Not necessarily. While strawberries can help to temporarily whiten your teeth, the citric acid that helps achieve this effect will wear down your enamel over time and cause more issues than it solves. Additionally, strawberries are high in natural sugars that can lead to dental issues like cavities.
Verdict: while they are delicious, there are other whitening treatments that have a better outcome.
That leads to the question, are strawberries good for your overall health? Yes! They are high in antioxidants and vitamin C, as well as many other vitamins your body needs. We suggest as with anything that they are eaten in moderation to prevent any issues with your tooth enamel. Once it’s gone, there is no way to get it back!
