Teeth Whitening in Saint Paul, MN
You Don’t Have To Live With Dental Discoloration Anymore
Professional Whitening Treatments Deliver Dramatic Results
If you have noticed that dental stains and discoloration are dimming your smile, you are not alone. This is a common aesthetic complaint among patients of many ages.
Dental discoloration may develop due to:
- Staining foods and beverages
- Thinning dental enamel
- Poor dental hygiene
- Smoking or using other tobacco products
The good news is that there are effective teeth whitening treatments that can refresh your smile quickly. Our MCMID dental team offers three different dental whitening options:
As part of your consultation with our team, we will help you determine which of these whitening options is right for you.
The whitening gel strips that we use in-office have considerably more whitening power than strips that are available over-the-counter.
Our team will create custom dental trays to fit your unique smile. These trays hold the whitening formulation in place on your teeth, to maximize efficacy.
This whitening system is designed to extend the amount of time that whitening gel is actively whitening your teeth. KöR trays lock in whitening gel, while preventing saliva from entering the trays and diluting the formulation.

Crowns, veneers, and a bridge
It’s hard to believe that something so small could change my life in such a big way. I have been pain free with out drugs or surgery for years now. My teeth have been saved from more damage because I don’t grind them any more.
Veneers and crowns (learn more)
Veneers and crowns
This patient presented with 12 year old composite veneers. He disliked both the color and lack of vitality of his veneers. He had worn the veneers thin, so we replaced them with newer veneers and some crowns.
Crowns (learn more)
Very opaque crowns and extremely dark roots under the crowns from previous root canal therapies brought this patient to our office. We replaced the 3 front crowns and lightened the roots of the teeth with whitening. Not all of the darkness is gone but we achieved a noticeable improvement.
Full mouth treatment plan (learn more)
Full mouth treatment plan
This patient presented with rampant decay on the lower jaw and worn veneers on the upper jaw along with many fractured back teeth. She also didn’t like the shortness of her teeth and closed smile. A full mouth treatment plan including crowns, veneers, and a number of root canals and tooth build-ups created a very harmonious smile.
Crowns (learn more)
A fall brought this patient to our office to fix fractured crowns. We restored the 2 front teeth with long-term provisional crowns in a single appointment so she could heal and enjoy her smile again until we treated a number of other teeth that were in need of restorations. We then converted her crowns to Porcelain again.
Bonded Tooth (learn more)
A crash in gym class against a concrete wall caused this fracture. We were able to successfully bond the broken piece back onto the fractured tooth to give this young man his smile back.
Bonded composite restorations (learn more)
Bonded composite restorations
Small fractures on the front teeth were treated with minimally invasive Air Abrasion. Then bonded composite restorations were placed on these fractures to bring back our patient’s smile.
Rejuvinated smile (learn more)
This patient didn’t think her smile looked nice, she wanted a restored and rejuvinated smile. After vigorous gum treatment, an implant was placed on the patient’s right side for the missing tooth. Then the crowns were replaced to restore the harmony of the smile.
Two old thick composite veneers were replaced here to leave the patient with the nicer, refreshed smile.
Veneers that were recently bonded by her previous dentist kept popping off, so this patient requested that we redo all 6 front teeth to get more solid teeth. We also did a smile lift by removing some excess gum tissue and rounding the corners of the teeth to achieve a nicer, more feminine smile.
This patient presented with chief concerns of short teeth and a gummy smile, so we placed 6 veneers after lifting the gums back to expose more root. This created a more harmonious smile.
Very worn and angular teeth brought this patient to the decision that she needed to restore her beautiful smile. 6 veneers were placed to accomplish this smile enhancement.
This smile on the right was immediately after orthodontic treatment, and the patient wore composite veneers until she was mature enough to take care of veneers. The final treatments included crown lengthening and new porcelain veneers to provide a long-term beautiful smile.
Crown replacement (learn more)
Crowns were replaced on these 6 front teeth and gums were reduced to get these teeth more in proportion to the patients smile.
This patient sought us out to restore her worn smile and help her because she was grinding her teeth. We fabricated 6 veneers and placed her in a splint that not only protected her investment in her smile, but also relieved her terrible headaches.

Treatment to Fit Your Life
Because we offer three different ways to whiten your teeth, you can choose the one that best fits your needs. If, for example, you don’t want to keep whitening trays in place for hours, then you may like professional whitening strips better. When you are ready to whiten your smile, you’ll have plenty of options available to you.
The whitening formulations that we provide in-office are designed to be safe for your dental enamel and underlying tooth structure. These whitening treatments deliver dramatic results, while minimizing tooth sensitivity.
All of the treatments we’ve discussed so far whiten your natural tooth structure. However, sometimes it is preferable for the patient to resurface the tooth with dental bonding or porcelain veneers. Our St. Paul cosmetic dentists are here to help you whiten your smile, your way.
What Our Patients Are Saying
After working with Dr. Malterud for a couple of weeks to get the right fit for my NTI, the results are great. I may still get a headache but only for a few hours and not severe.
