Teeth Whitening Bismarck ND

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with one of our simple “bleaching” procedures.

What are the details of teeth whitening?

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.

In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. We’ll want to take “after” photos at your next appointment.

Dental bleaching can be used to help correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in teeth whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.

How is teeth whitening done?

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Helps correct brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining
  • Works on people of any age
  • Is a great solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and bringing a smile alive

At Bismarck Family Dental, PC, we offer either in office bleaching or at home bleaching options for our patients. Ask either Dr. Van Erem or Dr. Holzer for more information regarding in office bleaching. For at home bleaching, an impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening may occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to see improvements in yellowing, aging, or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.

Considerations for Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
