Like many people, you may feel unhappy about the color of your teeth. Maybe you have even tried over-the-counter bleaching products with little to no success. You need an effective way to remove the stains that give your teeth that dull, yellow appearance. If you are tired of trying to smile with your lips together or looking for the exit when someone wants a photo, call 651-488-5522 for an appointment with our dentists. With our whitening system at St. Paul Family Dentistry, you can achieve that brilliant smile you have been dreaming of!

There are many causes of tooth discoloration, these include:

  • Stains from tobacco, coffee, tea, soda, red wine, berries, or any food or drink with dark pigmentation
  • Plaque and tartar deposits
  • Use of the antibiotic Tetracycline during childhood (this creates dark “ribbons” of color)
  • Ingestion of excess fluoride while teeth are forming (this gives teeth a “mottled” look)
  • Trauma to the mouth and teeth, which can cause yellow, brown, and gray spots
  • The natural aging process


If you have stained teeth, Drs. Peter Stanton, Joseph Opack and David Opack may recommend teeth whitening in St. Paul, Minnesota. Our dentists suggest a whitening tray system that will safely and effectively make your smile brighter and whiter. The process involves taking an impression of your teeth and creating trays fitted for your individual teeth. You can use these trays repeatedly to whiten your smile 4-6 shades! Our treatments are safe and effective. Call St. Paul Family Dentistry today to schedule an appointment and learn more about our whitening system.
