Does More Calcium Make Your Teeth Whiter?


There has always been this idea that I wonder about.  We are always told that drinking milk is good for our teeth and milk has calcium in it.  With milk being white in color, I have always wondered if calcium or milk will make your teeth white.  It only seems like it should, but does it?

According to the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, which is one of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and part of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. It funds and conducts research on topics related to the health of children, adults, families, and populations.

This research department says that calcium also can help build strong teeth.  Both baby teeth and adult teeth need calcium to grow and develop.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that calcium can also help protect teeth against tooth decay.  After looking through the National Center of Biotechnology Information studies and the American Dental Association websites, I can't find anywhere where anyone has ever mentioned that more calcium will make your teeth whiter.
