Sip to Celebrate International Tea Day | Tyngsboro Dentist

When the weather is chilly, nothing warms us up like a nice hot cup of tea. When the weather is warm, a tall glass of iced tea hits the spot like no other. It doesn’t matter the time of year – there is a perfect time to enjoy some tea. So much so, the world consumes 25,000 cups of tea every SECOND. That’s 2.16 billion cups a day! Tea is a centerpiece for some cultures and has some incredible health benefits, making it the most consumed beverage after water. It’s no wonder that the United Nations created International Tea Day on May 21, 2020.

While green tea seems to have more health benefits than black tea, tea in general has tremendous ways of keeping us healthy. Just look at all the benefits from one little beverage:

  • Contains antioxidants
  • Reduces one’s risk of heart attack and stroke
  • Aids with weight loss
  • Protects the bones
  • Prevents tooth loss
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Helps battle cancer
  • Soothes the digestive system
  • Helps the body to feel more relaxed

You read it right – drinking tea helps prevent tooth loss. But if you’re an avid tea drinker you know that after a while, your teeth begin to stain. It’s going to happen – it’s part of its chemical makeup. But that doesn’t mean you need to walk around with a dingy grin – there are plenty of options you can do to brighten a stained smile. But it all starts with good dental hygiene. Brushing twice a day, combined with flossing and rinsing will only keep those tea stains at bay until your checkups. So, enjoy your tea, whichever way you prefer it. Your teeth will thank you for it.

Achieve the Perfect Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry | Tyngsboro Dentist

We all want that perfect Hollywood smile – the kind that lights up a room when we enter it. Unfortunately, we aren’t all that lucky to have that smile naturally. But it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Cosmetic dentistry can create the bright natural looking smile you deserve. Whether you are interested in a complete smile design, restoring chipped teeth or just need a simple whitening treatment, cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile. Here is a basic list of dental procedures that you can select to get that smile you’ve always dreamed of next time you visit the dentist:

Porcelain veneers. Fingernail-thin shells are adhered to the front surface of the tooth. Veneers can fix several aesthetic problems with just one treatment.

Whitening. There are at-home whitening kits and in-office whitening treatments. At-home bleaching kits use carbamide peroxide solutions to oxidize and bleach your teeth.  In-office bleaching (chair side, light-activated or one-hour bleaching) uses hydrogen peroxide gels and a heat or light source and lighten your teeth by six to eight shades in one to three visits, and sometimes less.

Bonding. Sometimes your issues aren’t major. Gaps, chips, broken teeth, spots and discoloration can all be repaired with bonding. You can regain your smile and confidence.

Crowns. A perfectly fitted restoration that repairs and strengthens a tooth that has fractured, has a large cavity, an old filling that has failed, or has had root canal therapy. Unlike an inlay or onlay, a crown completely covers the tooth.

Invisalign. The invisible way to straighten teeth. Using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners.
