Here’s a riddle from Prestige Dentistry in Palm Harbor and Trinity FL: 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, food and drink can cause plaque to form on our teeth. Tea can stain this plaque, and eventually turn it into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Tartar, on the other hand, requires an in-depth dentistry procedure known as scaling. Which would you rather have to deal with?
After drinking tea, make sure to drink some water to wash your mouth out. Brush and floss all the surfaces of the teeth thoroughly at the end of the day. If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, you may want to consider professional Zoom!® teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
