Frank Vidjak and Fanny Yacaman encourage you to book an appointment at their practice, Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry, to discuss the advantages of professional-grade teeth whitening solutions.

How do teeth become stained?
There are many reasons why a patient might deal with stained teeth. Some of the more common causes of tooth discoloration include:
- Certain habits such as chewing tobacco and smoking cigarettes
- Darker beverages, such as soft drinks, teas, and coffees
- Dark berries such as blueberries and raspberries
- Tomato sauce and other similar acidic foods
- Regular consumption of chocolate without brushing and flossing afterwards
- Genetics, with some patients having yellower teeth than others
- Trauma, which can cause a single tooth to change in overall color and appearance
What can be done about staining of the teeth?
In most cases, patients can keep their teeth from staining by stopping bad habits and starting to brush and floss after every meal. This will remove any acids, sugars, and other elements that may become stuck on the natural tooth structure. Additionally, patients can seek the help of a dentist who offers professional-grade whitening treatments that will lift deep stains from natural tooth enamel and provide results that can last many months. Patients can ask their dental team about how to care for their smiles to enjoy a whiter smile longer.
