Transform your smile with powerful and painless professional teeth whitening!
A healthy, radiant smile with dazzling white teeth exudes self-confidence and pride. Individuals with attractive smiles don’t hold back; they laugh and speak unabashedly and without fear or embarrassment over yellow, stained teeth. The trusted professional teeth whitening services prescribed by Dr. Bridget Lervick at the Grandview Center for Dentistry in Edina, Minnesota, restore the beautiful brilliance of your teeth by combating even the most stubborn, intrinsic discoloration.
A world of whitening methods within arm’s reach
Dr. Lervick is privileged to provide many modern whitening options to her valued patients in Richfield, Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, and the greater Twin Cities area. Individuals can whiten their teeth in just one office visit. Or, they can get or restore their dazzling lighter teeth from the comfort and convenience of home with custom whitening “trays.” We also offer the industry-leading KöR® Whitening System.
The beauty of the “best”: KöR® treatment
The result of more than 30 years of clinical study, the KöR® process effectively, dramatically, and safely whitens teeth with stains that were formerly thought to be “untreatable” or “whitening-resistant.” In the past, patients with intrinsic blue, white, gray, brown, yellow, or orange discoloration had to cover up these resistant stains with dental bonding or porcelain veneers.
With KöR®, Dr. Lervick may prescribe the whitening gel to effectively break down large, dark stain molecules into small, colorless particles. This proprietary gel whitens by up to 16 shades without gimmicky light activation and heat. The “magic” is in the gel’s capacity to condition the teeth. So, the tooth structure can optimally absorb the active ingredients in the gel. In turn, teeth whiten better.
Additionally, KöR® is formulated with special “desensitizers.” Unlike systems that mask the problem, this form of deep bleaching gets to the core of whitening-related tooth sensitivity by “plugging” the microscopic tubules responsible for discomfort during treatment. The bleaching ingredients cannot then seep through the tubules and into the deeper layers of the teeth.
Dr. Lervick may apply the powerful yet low-risk KöR® gel at our office or via custom trays that optimally seal in the whitening gel for even, precise, and safe application. She may recommend a “hybrid” chairside, take-home approach for some patients.
In-office “power” bleaching
As indicated, office whitening is a great way to quickly transform the appearance of the teeth. Dr. Lervick takes safeguards to isolate the teeth from the rest of the mouth before applying the concentrated whitening gel. You can enjoy several-shades-lighter teeth ahead of a wedding, family or class reunion, or job interview in just one visit.
Custom take-home whitening kits
You may have tried over-the-counter whitening kits. At best, they produce lackluster results. At worst, they cause irritation or damage to the teeth and surrounding gums. The problem with these kits is they do not contain proven ingredients to safely and effectively remove stains from the teeth. If the OTC gel is formulated with proven ingredients, the concentration is usually too weak to make a noticeable difference in the color of the teeth.
Our professional kits contain clinically proven effective and safe ingredients, which are concentrated for maximum whitening. Dr. Lervick can also customize the type of gel and its concentration to address your unique needs; for instance, a less-concentrated formula may be prescribed for patients who are at risk of developing tooth sensitivity.
Additionally, OTC whitening trays are designed to “fit all mouths,” which means they fit “no mouths.” In turn, these trays can slide around. They may cause sores or irritation, uneven whitening results, and damage to oral tissues. Professional whitening trays fit snugly yet comfortably for precise stain removal – without the risk.

During your visit, Dr. Lervick will work with you to determine the best method to bring out the best in your smile. The appropriate product or approach depends on factors such as:
- Type of stains or discoloration
- The severity of stains or discoloration
- Risk factors for side effects, such as tooth sensitivity
- Existing dental restorations
- Financial concerns
- “Time horizon”
Patients seeking a conservative alternative to veneers that simply cover up stubborn intrinsic discoloration or severe stains may be appropriate candidates for KöR. Those who want to make a dramatic difference in their appearance in just one visit might opt for the chairside procedure. Our in-office visits provide the ultimate creature comforts – from cozy blankets and pillows to our inviting beverage station. And those who wish to gradually remove stains from the comfort and convenience of their home may be great candidates for our take-home whitening kits.
