Vegetables that are good for dental health

In the Vegetable Gardening
Hey, I am having yellowish stained teeth and the stains won't disappear no matter how hard I try. I use to drink a lot of coffee and I guess that might be the reason behind my stained smile.
My friends tease me for this. Whenever we pose for a pic, I always close my mouths shut in fear that my yellowish stained teeth would show off. I have tried several DIY's, but none of them are working.
So, I am planning to undergo a tooth whitening ( ) from Burlington in order to make them white faster. My dentist has asked me to include a lot of vegetables in my diet. I have heard that broccoli and carrot are excellent for dental health, as well as keeping teeth white.
I would like to grow them at home and is interested in knowing more about their cultivation. I am also interested in starting a vegetable garden at home. Please recommend some vegetables that can be grown easily. Thanks in advance.

Calcium-rich foods, such as low-fat or fat-free milk, yogurt and cheese, fortified soy drinks and tofu, canned salmon, almonds and dark green leafy vegetables help promote strong teeth and bones. Phosphorus, found in eggs, fish, lean meat, dairy, nuts and beans is good for strong teeth.

Crisp fruits and raw vegetables, like apples, carrots and celery, help clean plaque from teeth and freshen breath. Antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin C, and other nutrients from fruits and vegetables help protect gums and other tissues from cell damage and bacterial infection.
