Every dental checkup performed at our dental office is designed to monitor and address all the facets of maintaining a healthy mouth. This includes a meticulous dental cleaning to remove hardened tartar and polish away minor surface stains. If the teeth in your smile suffer from significant dental stains, one of our skilled dentists might recommend performing a dental bleaching treatment.

The potent whitening agents and professional techniques our dentists use are the safest and most effective method for removing stains that have set deep into your tooth enamel. Once this is done, we can help you find the necessary measures to maintain your white smile between dental checkups.  

This typically involves cutting back on dark beverages, and certain foods, as well as tobacco use. At the same time, you might want to also try using whitening strips that have earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.

They can be a convenient way to remove surface stains while you go about your day. When the clear plastic strips are in your mouth the casual observer will struggle to notice them. While wearing them, you should not eat, drink, chew gum or use tobacco products.

Before you purchase any brand of whitening strips, you should look for the ADA’s logo on the package. This signifies that the product and its active ingredients have been researched for safe oral use.

If you live in the Taylorsville, Utah, area and you want to find the safest, most effective way to whiten your smile, please call 801-685-3429 to schedule an appointment at Southwest Dental LLC. Drs. Victor Pickett, Nick Rudelich, Curtis Condie, Michael Loeser, and Luke Rudelich are here for your smile!
