Here’s a riddle from Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper WY: What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea? Why, Denis, of course.
Alright, alright. Lame jokes aside, a common concern for patients is stained teeth. In this blog post, we’ll talk about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages, including tea.
Over time, tea can stain the teeth. This staining eventually turns into plaque, which, over time, forms tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. This is one of the reasons daily brushing and flossing are absolutely vital.
After drinking tea, rinse your mouth with water, and brush and floss your teeth at the end of the day, making sure to reach every corner and crevice. It is absolutely vital that the debris doesn’t harden into tartar. Otherwise, you might need a procedure known as scaling in order to remove it.
If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, you may want to consider KöR® teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and other cosmetic dentistry options offered at Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper WY.
