Here’s a riddle from The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria: What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea? Why, Denis, of course.
Lame jokes aside, a common concern for some of our 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 plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Daily oral hygiene is vital.
Between cleanings, rinse with water after drinking tea. Be sure to brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth 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 teeth whitening.
At The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria we can transform yellow or dull teeth. People trust their smiles to our cosmetic dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!
