Here are some foods that are known to actually help brighten your smile.

The fact that the fruit is loaded with malic acid helps to remove surface stains on your teeth that are caused by eating oily and foods that contain more spice. They also have antioxidants that prevent your teeth from attracting stains and bacteria.
Discolourations are caused to the damage caused to our teeth enamel, and the calcium and phosphorous in curd helps in taking care of the enamel on our teeth. This in turn helps in keeping our teeth white and shiny.
