West Jordan Dentistry options for whiter teethWhite, shiny teeth are the foundation for a better smile. Though good hygiene is an excellent start for keeping your teeth looking and feeling good, West Jordan dentist Dr. Keith Warr can recommend many different general and cosmetic treatments for enhancing the color of your smile.

Teeth whitening is obviously a popular solution for removing stains and restoring shine. In a session lasting a little over an hour, this procedure can remove months and even years worth of discoloration. Dr. Warr has found that patients enjoy best results with the Zoom! whitening system, which can lighten tooth color eight to 10 shades.

Zoom! is manufactured by Philips, the same company behind the innovative Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush. Dr. Warr recommends this toothbrush to all of his patients in the Salt Lake City area, and we carry it at the front desk. In just one week you could have not only a whiter smile but teeth that are up to five times cleaner, too.

Additional steps you can take to keep your smile shining include:

  • Cut back on foods and drinks that stain, such as coffee, rich sauces, berries, candy, and more
  • Don’t smoke – a good decision for the beauty of your teeth and your overall health
  • Use a whitening toothpaste on a weekly basis
  • See the dentist for cleanings every six months

During your regular appointments, Dr. Warr can provide hands-on guidance to help you maximize the health of your mouth and the whiteness of your teeth.
