Sparkling white teeth are ideal. They’re showcased in magazines, movies, and TV shows on our favorite models and actors. It can seem impossible to keep your teeth so white on your own, yet these beautiful people make it seem so easy to have a great smile—their secret is professional teeth whitening.
That’s why you need McCullough Dental. We have professional teeth whitening systems such as Life-Like that can get you your movie-star smile in seemingly no time at all!
Teeth Whitening From a Bakersfield Dentist
At McCullough Dental, we offer high-quality, prescription-based whitening solutions that will clear up your teeth after a few uses. The Life-Like gel solution is perfectly safe and very effective in removing stains caused by wear, alcohol, tobacco, and coffee.
Our solution sits in a whitening tray, which you then fit snugly over your teeth. You’ll leave the solution on for a specified number of hours—which Dr. McCullough will prescribe depending on your desired shade of white. Then you’ll repeat the process over a few days. Soon, you’ll see a notable improvement in the color of your teeth.
The best part? You can complete the whole process from the comfort of your own home! Life-Like take-homes kits have the benefit of professional prescription care and the convenience of adhering to your own schedule.
Over the Counter vs. Professional
You might have seen teeth whitening kits at the local pharmacy. Though these kits may be much cheaper than our professional kits, they can leave you with uneven end results, cause tooth and gum irritation, and even damage your teeth in some cases.
With prescription kits, you can know that you are getting quality treatment that is safe to use. If you do notice any irritation during or after your treatment, our Bakersfield dentist is here to help. With drugstore kits, you don’t get that kind of professional care.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Even though our whitening kits are applied out-of-office, they are prescription-strength and dentist-approved. We will work with you closely to give you a safe treatment that gets you the pearly smile you’ve always wanted. If you’re considering teeth whitening, here are some advantages of our treatment:
- Convenience: We will provide you with a kit that includes appliances and whitening solution, along with a suggestion about the frequency and duration of use. You’ll get to apply the solution when it’s most convenient for you—such as at night right before bed.
- Confidence: Many of our patients are self-conscious about their smiles before they receive the whitening treatment, but teeth whitening can improve your self-confidence! After you’ve been using the solution for a few days, you’ll notice a remarkable difference in your smile, and probably your mood too.
- Professional Results: You’ll get the assurance of knowing that your whitening kit is dentist-approved. Our dentist will guide you through how to use the solution, and he will be there to help if you experience any discomfort or irritation during treatment.
- Safety: Our bleaching gels have a neutral pH, so they won’t damage the tooth. And your teeth will be whitened with very minimal sensitivity. The gels and trays are designed for your maximum comfort and satisfaction.
Quality dentistry is our highest priority, and we love a good aesthetic too. Our Life-Like teeth whitening treatment checks both of those boxes. With this treatment, you can have excellent service and a beautiful smile!
How Long Will My Teeth Stay White?
The Life-Like treatment will last varying amounts of time for each patient. Your eating habits can be a factor in the longevity of the treatment. There are certain foods and beverages that will darken your teeth more quickly than others. If you avoid the following, your whitening treatment can possibly last for two years.
- Balsamic vinegar.
- Tomato sauce.
When you notice that the treatment is fading, you can certainly go through the treatment again. Usually, the additional treatments produce quicker results than the first treatment. However many treatments you need over the years, McCullough Dental has the quality whitening you’re looking for.
