What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea?
Why, Denis, of course.
Joking aside, a common concern for Draper patients can be stained teeth. I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood of Salt Lake Dental Care. Today, let’s talk a little bit 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. Thorough daily rituals of oral cleaning are valuable for this. Tartar (which forms if the plaque remains on the teeth for over 24 hours), on the other hand, will need to be removed in-office during a teeth cleaning appointment. Either way, between cleanings a wise method for avoiding tea staining is to rinse with water after drinking tea or to eat something and then to 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, teeth whitening is a popular option. Our other services include:
