Stained teeth can be successfully returned to a brilliant, beautiful white. Various treatment options are available at ConfiDental, the premier aesthetic dental office in Beverly Hills. The causes of stained teeth can vary quite dramatically depending on lifestyle habits, with smoking and certain foods often the primary culprits.

About teeth whitening

When looking into whitening treatments, it is essential to consider tooth sensitivity, as some procedures may result in increased sensitivity and other issues. However, when a professional dentist performs teeth whitening, several highly effective treatments can give long-lasting results for up to two years with proper upkeep. ConfiDental Beverly Hills offers specialized whitening treatments tailored specifically to handle the type of stains our patients have.

Teeth are essential to our physical appearance; as such, it is crucial to take preventive measures to ensure they remain clean and free from stains. Here are some tips on avoiding staining your teeth, keeping them healthy, and looking their best:
