Like most old wives tale there is an element of truth in that strawberries can whiten teeth. The reason is that the acid inside the strwberry cleans your teeth from dark stains and gives the appearance of white teeth. But the problem of using strawberries to whiten your teeth is the acid may damage the enamel. This can reveal the dentin in your teeth which is made from a yellow substance. The seed in the straeberry can also scratch your teeth and causes further damage.

Yes? Apparently the malic acid in strawberries can remove stains, but must be mixed with baking soda (obviously) and PROMPTLY REMOVED by brushing, to avoid damage to the enamel. (This is also not recommended for frequent use.) In fact strawberries can whiten teeth. What you have to do is cut off the top part of the strawberry, and rub the pink and white on your teeth for about a minute. After you have done that, you brush your teeth with your regular toothpaste. It would whiten a little bit faster if you have baking soda in your toothpaste.

No! strawberries are a nutritional powerhouse for both you and your dog. Like their blue cousins, strawberries are full of antioxidants. They also boast high fiber and a lot of vitamin C. Here's a bonus: Strawberries even contain an enzyme that can help whiten your dog's teeth.
