My friend went gluten-free in May. A couple weeks ago her son asked if she had changed toothpaste because her teeth look so much whiter.

Mine had been yellowish but I bleached them before changing diet so I can't tell.

I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this.

I don't think mine are any whiter, but I wouldn't doubt that it's true. gluten-free seems to fix a lot of problems. And if the person had a lot of heartburn or acid reflux associated with gluten, that could definitely affect the teeth.


Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.

My teeth didn't whiten when I went gluten free, but they DID start responding to the whitening mouthwash that I use. I never was able to whiten my teeth prior to going gluten free because it just wouldn't work, it would make them look dirty. Now, my teeth are much whiter than ever before thanks to the mouthwash. I've also noticed that my teeth feel stronger, like I can eat an apple now. I could never do that before, it just hurt too much.

I've noticed that my lips are getting redder (increased circulation? more B vitamins?), so that might have an effect on how white my teeth look.
