Teeth Whitening

If you want to improve your smile's appearance, professional teeth whitening is an excellent treatment option to consider. Custom take-home whitening trays at our Moorhead dental office make the process convenient, and you can’t argue with the stunning results that the treatment provides.

It’s a fact of life that your bright smile will fade over the years. Microscopic holes open in dental enamel and trap food particles and stains from many foods and drinks. Tobacco use creates brown stains that you can’t brush away, and even genetics can be a factor.

Enjoy a Brighter, Refreshed Smile with Professional Whitening

Fortunately, for many people, the answer to dull, stained, or yellow teeth is customized take-home teeth whitening kits. Don’t compare over-the-counter whitening kits to those Dr. Atchison prescribes for his Moorhead patients because they are two different things.

Teeth whitening kits you buy at your drug store are one-size-fits-all. You typically get a generic whitening tray and a mild whitening gel. 

When you choose a cosmetic dentist to manage your whitening, you get:

Customized Whitening Trays

You can’t compare generic boil-and-bite trays to custom fabricated whitening trays that we make using impressions of your teeth. A custom whitening tray fits your mouth perfectly and covers all surfaces of your teeth evenly. This provides even, consistent results and prevents the gel from seeping out and damaging tender gum tissue.

Prescription-Strength Whitening Gel

Dr. Atchison matches the strength of the whitening gel to your needs. Those with tooth sensitivity may require a milder prescription, while others can get a more potent product. 

Supervision by a Cosmetic Dentist

Have you ever used a drugstore whitening kit only to be disappointed by the lackluster results? So have a lot of people! If you have, you’ve found that there’s little support other than an 800 number to call.

When you choose professional teeth whitening with our cosmetic dentist in Moorhead, we are always here for you. Experience tooth sensitivity? Call us, and we’ll adjust the strength of the whitening gel. Hoping for more dazzling results? We will work with you until we help you achieve your dream smile.

How Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening Works

We’ll fabricate your custom whitening trays, and when they’re ready, you’ll pick them up, along with the prescription whitening gel. Our dental team will demonstrate how to place the gel in the trays and instruct you to wear them 20-30 minutes a day or longer, depending on your needs.

Wear your gel-filled trays every day for 2-3 weeks, and while results vary, be prepared to see a noticeably whiter smile! The trays are yours to keep, and you can use them along with any leftover gel to perform monthly touch-ups to maintain the bright results.

Ready to Get Started with Professional Teeth Whitening?

If you are ready to get started with teeth whitening at our Moorhead, MN dental office, call to schedule a teeth cleaning with our hygienist. This step is necessary to clear away any plaque and tartar that could produce uneven results.
