Teeth Whitening in Fargo, ND
There are many reasons to use teeth whitening as a safe way to improve your smile. As time goes on, normal wear of tooth enamel leads to a dulled aesthetic. Consuming dark colored beverages such as coffee, tea, and red wine, or habits such as smoking, can result in yellow or brown teeth. With at-home teeth whitening options, you can enhance the aesthetics of your smile at your own pace in the comfort of your own home.
What Does Teeth Whitening Involve?
Our goal is to create the look of a naturally white smile. One of the more popular options offered by Dr. Lundstrom is the take-home whitening system, a personalized treatment that produces noticeable results. A key to the success of any teeth whitening system is the professional grade whitening agents used. To take full advantage of this powerful, yet non-abrasive solution, patients are provided with custom whitening trays that securely hold the whitening agent against their teeth.
Dr. Lundstrom will provide you with proper care instructions for safe and effective at-home whitening. We also encourage regular follow-up visits at our Fargo dental office to monitor progress as well as to assist with any issues that arise during treatment.
The amount of time you will wear your tray at home depends on the degree of discoloration and your unique smile goals. This ranges from twice daily wear for 30 minutes to wearing the trays overnight for a period of a few weeks. Some sensitivity is normal after whitening and should subside gradually afterward. Contact us immediately if the sensitivity does not diminish over time.
The whitening agent contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride) to help reduce sensitivity as well as strengthen enamel and improve overall oral health. While effective, teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. To keep your teeth bright, Dr. Lundstrom will work with you to provide regular maintenance. It is also important to note that teeth whitening will not change the color of restorations such as fillings or crowns. Dr. Lundstrom may recommend replacing these restorations to give your smile a more consistent, natural appearance.
