Teeth Whitening


Sparkling white teeth are ideal. They are 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 people make it seem so easy to have a great smile—their secret is professional teeth whitening.

That is where McCullough Dental comes in. We have professional teeth whitening systems such as Life-Like that can help you achieve a movie-star smile in seemingly no time at all! Schedule a consultation with our dental team to find out more about professional teeth whitening and all of the ways it will benefit your smile.

Teeth Whitening from a Bakersfield Dentist

At McCullough Dental, we offer high-quality, prescription-based whitening solutions that will brighten 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.

The solution sits in a whitening tray that fits snugly over your teeth. You will leave the solution on for a specified number of hours—which Dr. McCullough will prescribe depending on your desired shade of white—and then repeat the process over a few days. Soon, you will 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-home kits offer professional quality with at-home convenience.

Understanding Your Dental Needs

When it comes to your overall confidence and how you view yourself, it is important to be realistic. Especially when it could affect your oral health. When you use over-the-counter teeth whitening kits you expose your smile to harmful ingredients, uneven results, and enamel damage.

Whether you want a brighter smile for family photos, a high school reunion, or increased overall confidence, then you will want lasting results that are safe for your smile. Professional teeth whitening can give you the smile you have always wanted, without sacrificing comfort or convenience.

Solutions That Enhance Lives

Teeth whitening does a lot more than give you a whiter smile. It can improve your quality of life, as well. Have you consciously or subconsciously covered your teeth while talking, eating, or laughing because of stains or discoloration? If so, teeth whitening will benefit your day-to-day interactions by giving you complete confidence in your smile.

With personalized whitening kits, you can get the long-lasting, bright smile you want in a short amount of time. Our dental team will work with you to create a treatment plan that accommodates your needs, goals, and dental health for stunning results!

Why Choose Us?

McCullough Dental believes that every patient should be treated like family and every treatment should be tailored to each unique smile. That’s why our dental office combines experience, expertise, and advanced dental technology to help our patients reach their dental goals.

What Are the Treatment Options?

In-Office Care

During your appointment, our dental team will discuss your smile goals and evaluate your current smile needs. We will use this information to create a personalized treatment plan. Unlike store-bought kits, our dentist will provide you with your timeline and projected results. If at-home style isn’t for you, you can receive the same whitening treatment in our office at the hands of a professional.

Take-Home Kits

We also offer personalized take-home whitening kits to ensure that you receive comfortable and convenient care. These kits give you the freedom to pick your schedule and whiten when it works for you. Like our in-office treatments, the take-home kits use professional, dentist-approved solutions that are specific to your smile.

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.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Even though our take-home whitening kits are applied outside our office, they are prescription-strength and dentist-approved. We want you to look and feel your best, so we will work closely with you to help you safely achieve that pearly smile you have always wanted. Our teeth whitening treatment offers several benefits:

  • Convenience: We will provide you with a kit that includes trays and a whitening solution, along with information about the frequency and duration of use. You will get to apply the solution when it is 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 have been using the solution for a few days, you will notice a remarkable difference in your smile (and probably your mood too!).
  • Quality: With our kits, you get the assurance of knowing that your whitening solution 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 will not damage the tooth. This way, your teeth can be whitened with very minimal sensitivity. Similarly, 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!

Frequently Asked Questions about Teeth Whitening

Why shouldn’t I use over-the-counter whitening kits?

You might have seen teeth whitening kits at the local pharmacy. Though these kits may be affordable, they can leave you with uneven results, tooth and gum irritation, and in some cases, damaged teeth. Professional teeth whitening will protect your oral health while giving you the results you want.

How long will my teeth stay white?

The longevity of Life-Like treatment results will vary for each patient depending on factors like eating habits. Certain foods and beverages will darken your teeth more quickly than others. If you avoid the following, your whitening treatment can potentially last up to two years.

  • Tobacco/smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Coffee
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Soda
  • Berries
  • Tomato sauce
  • Curry

Heavy consumption of these foods, beverages, and substances can quickly reverse the results of your whitening. If you choose to consume them, do so in moderation to ensure a longer-lasting, white smile.

When you notice that the treatment is fading, you can go through the treatment again. Usually, the additional treatments produce results more quickly than the first treatment. No matter the number of treatments you need over the years, McCullough Dental has the quality whitening you are looking for.
