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. I’m Dr. Mark Phan of OKC Smiles. 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. Daily oral hygiene is crucial.
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 bleaching.
