Dark, discolored teeth can detract from the appearance of even the straightest smiles. If your smile has other flaws, stains and discolorations can make them look even worse. Teeth whitening from our Beverly Hills teeth whitening dentist is one option that can brighten your smile, and it can be used on its own for a quick pick-me-up or combined with other treatments for a transformative smile makeover.
Coffee, tea, smoking, wine, colas, and energy drinks are among the biggest offenders when it comes to stains, but they are not alone. The aging process can also leave teeth looking dull and discolored. Over time, the outer layer of enamel can be eroded, which allows the darker dentin to show through. In some cases, teeth can be discolored by intrinsic factors, such as injury, fluorosis, or antibiotic use. Our expert in teeth whitening in Beverly Hills will evaluate your teeth to determine the cause of the stains and recommend the most appropriate whitening treatment for your needs.
Teeth Whitening Beverly Hills
Your whitening options can vary based on your teeth. Our Beverly Hills teeth whitening dentist can dramatically brighten your teeth using Zoom, a topical in-office chair-side whitening treatment. Zoom can be performed in an hour or less, and you will leave the office ready to show off your new smile. At-home whitening may also be available. At-home whitening offers more gradual results and may need to be performed daily over the course of several days or weeks to achieve the desired degree of whitening. Topical teeth whitening can also be performed before veneers are placed to create the brightest white smile possible.
Keeping your new smile looking its best requires the right combination of at-home care and occasional touch-ups. When possible, avoid staining substances, such as soy sauce, berries, wine, and soft drinks. After every meal, rinse thoroughly with water as soon as possible. Brush teeth at least twice a day, floss daily, and visit us for a professional cleaning about twice a year. Touch-ups may be needed to keep stains at bay.
