Summer time is the time of year for cold, refreshing treats that help you and your family beat the heat. This summer, we’ve created some smoothies that are easy to make, and that your teeth will appreciate!

Scrumptious Strawberry and Watermelon 

Watermelon is high in vitamin C, which greatly benefits your teeth and gums by preventing cell damage that can lead to gum degeneration. Yogurt is an awesome source of protein, calcium and casein, all of which are great for building strong teeth and maintaining healthy tooth enamel. These smoothies are awesome for sipping outside and beating the heat!
