The Tea And Teeth Question

Reno teeth bleaching best price

What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea?
Why, Denis, of course.

Joking aside, a common concern for Carson City patients can be stained teeth. I’m Dr. Shane Sykes of The Reno Dentist. 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, there is always teeth whitening as an option. Our other services include:

Dentures and partial dentures
Invisalign
Root canals
Porcelain veneers
Wisdom teeth extraction

The cost of living is going up in Carson City, Spanish Springs, and Virginia City. Come on in, Sparks, and let us share our competitive pricing, financial options and superb service with you. Cosmetic dentistry may be less costly than you think.

Our specialty is cosmetic dentistry. A popular service in our office is dental implants. We would love to do restorative dentistry if that appeals to you.

Now you know that tea doesn’t have to stain teeth permanently. What’s your next question?

Fighting Bad Breath and Removing Tooth Stains

cosmetic dentist Sparks NV

Did you know that brushing and flossing fights bad breath and removes stains?

If you have persistent stains that brushing can’t remove, get your teeth bleached at The Reno Dentist for a dazzling, stain free smile.

The American Dental Association recommends two minutes as a minimum time for brushing. Most folks think they brush that long but would be surprised if they actually set a timer. Most of us only brush for about a minute, if that.

I am Dr. Shane Sykes of The Reno Dentist. In my office, we practice preventative dentistry by working with our patients to establish essential oral hygiene habits.

If you are looking for a a family dentist in Reno, I invite you to come meet my knowledgeable team.

Our address is 855 W Seventh St Ste 200, Reno, Nevada. We offer general and restorative dentistry, including TMD treatment and dental implants.

And here’s a quick cold-fighting tip for my Reno clients: get a new toothbrush when you catch a cold. A toothbrush teeming with germs can re-infect you!

Reno Dynamic Dental Duo: Teeth Whitening and Veneers

Reno Teeth Whitening and Veneers Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in Reno and throughout Nevada.

Numerous ads for whitening products in our local Reno media contain terms such as ‘white brite’, ’22 carbamide peroxide’ and ‘peroxide teeth’. They look tempting, but how do you separate tooth bleaching fact from fiction?

First, and especially for our local Reno Nevada patients, we recommend talking to Shane Sykes DMD at The Reno Dentist at our Reno office. Just because teeth whitening products are readily available in Spanish Springs and Virginia City, it doesn’t mean they are all safe or appropriate for every person. Getting a professional opinion is a good first step.

Don’t be fooled by smile whitening hype and risk damage, especially if you need tetracycline teeth whitening. If you have existing cosmetic dental work such as crowns, bonding, partial dentures or bridge work, it is especially important to talk to a Sparks dental professional about worry-free dentistry teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening kits are not the only way to quickly improve your smile in Spanish Springs. Many of your Virginia City and Carson City neighbors have benefited from porcelain veneers. There are several brands of veneers such as Lumineers by Cerinate, da Vinci and Mac. We can help you decide on which is best for you.

Veneers are sometimes called ‘instant orthodontics’ because they can correct tooth misalignment and gaps as well as provide instant teeth whitening.

Porcelain veneers can also fix chipped teeth and cover stains. The vast majority of Reno veneer recipients are extremely pleased with the results.

All Tooth Stains Are Not Created Equal

Reno Teeth Bleaching Will any of our locally advertised Reno teeth whitening options remove the stains from your teeth?

The effectiveness of teeth bleaching in Spanish Springs depends partly on the types of stains.

Extrinsic tooth stains are the easiest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.

Unfortunately, even if you avoid these common teeth stainers, your teeth will become discolored over time. Like gray hair, wrinkles, and memory lapses, a dull smile is an inevitable part of aging for Sparks men and women.

Intrinsic tooth stains develop from the inside out. Tooth injury and tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove completely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional tooth whitening available at your Virginia City cosmetic dental office.

If your teeth are stained, whether from coffee, tetracycline, or excessive fluoride, call The Reno Dentist at 775-322-5016. We have treated many Carson City patients with extreme tooth discoloration.

It is never too late or too early to brighten your smile.

Reno seniors can take years off their appearance by restoring the youthful white smiles they once enjoyed. Sparks teens and young adults with surface stains can prevent them from becoming intrinsic stains with Spanish Springs tooth bleaching.

Speaking of the younger set, did you know that people who drink energy drinks are at risk for many dental problems?

Call us at 775-322-5016.
