The Tea And Teeth Question

Elgin teeth bleaching best price

Here’s a riddle from David Rice DDS in Elgin: What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea? Why, Denis, of course.

Lame jokes aside, a common concern for patients is stained teeth. In this blog post we’re going to talk a little bit about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages like tea.

Over time, tea, coffee and cola can stain the plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Tartar cannot, so daily oral hygiene is critical.

Between cleanings, rinse with water after drinking these beverages. 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 teeth whitening, one of the cosmetic dentistry services we provide.
