Teeth Whitening for an Instantly Brighter Smile
Nothing works faster to give you a healthy-looking smile than bright, white teeth. Although there are many over-the-counter products that claim to produce great results, nothing works as well as professional teeth whitening. Dr. Cutbirth, Waco dentist, can make your smile instantly brighter and reduce or eliminate stains caused by coffee and tea, cigarettes, aging or some forms of medication.
We have two types of teeth whitening procedures available. One is done with a laser treatment in our office, and the other type is a “do-it-yourself” process that you can perform in your own home. When you visit our office for a “DIY” professional teeth whitening treatment, we’ll create a custom-fit tray especially for your teeth. We’ll also provide you with our powerful whitening gel so you can continue whitening your teeth at home until your smile is as bright as can be!

Why Professional Teeth Whitening is Best
There are countless over-the-counter whitening products available. And although some of them may work to some degree over the course of time, nothing is as fast or as effective as professional whitening treatments – even the “do-it-yourself” variety. There are two reasons for this. The custom-made tray that we create especially for your teeth during your initial visit fits your teeth snugly, which means that the whitening agent will have better contact with your teeth than other OTC products can provide. Secondly, the whitening gel we provide is powerful enough to get the job done quickly.
You can choose to have a laser whitening treatment done here in our office, or you can choose the at-home treatment so you can whiten as often as you’d like.

How Whitening Fixes Discolored, Dark or Stained Teeth
Having discolored or stained teeth is embarrassing. Fortunately, the simple process of bleaching your teeth can eliminate discoloration instantly! Bleaching your teeth is easy and safe – and you won’t believe the beautiful results!
We offer two types of bleaching methods:
- Zoom Whitening – power bleaching with a laser, a process that is done in our office.
- Crest Whitening – at-home bleaching, where we provide you with special whitening gel and a custom-fitting tray.
The primary difference between these two treatments is the power of the bleaching agent used. Power bleaching typically requires anywhere from three to six visits to our office. At-home bleaching usually takes as long as four weeks of regularly performing the bleaching process at home.
Damaged teeth should be repaired prior to bleaching, and sensitive teeth need to be protected before the process can take place.

Choosing the Right Tooth Whitening Method for You
Professional whitening definitely has a dramatic effect on your smile. If you follow healthy habits after your teeth are bleached, the beautiful results can last up to five years! Our patients enjoy higher than a 90% success rate with teeth whitening. Exact results will depend on how stained your teeth are and certain personal habits, such as smoking or some medications that you take.
It’s important to remember that bleaching will not work on dental material used in crowns, veneers, etc. And Dr. Cutbirth may recommend that you avoid whitening if you have periodontal disease, worn enamel or sensitive teeth. Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding may also not be good candidates for teeth whitening.
Once Waco dentist, Dr. Cutbirth, determines that it’s safe for you to have your teeth whitened, the next step involves selecting which method is best for you. Some treatments are done in our office, while others can be done at home. Laser bleaching done in our office will have instantaneous results. At-home bleaching can take longer. Depending on the strength of the gel used and the amount of time the gel is exposed to your teeth, at-home bleaching usually requires several treatments over a period of weeks to achieve optimum results. Different types of stains require different methods of whitening, and Dr. Cutbirth can help you choose which method is best for you.
Whitening Your Teeth Safely in Waco
Generally speaking, teeth whitening is safe. The American Dental Association has given its seal of approval to a wide variety of whitening products over the last few years. However, you should know that whitening your teeth could increase your sensitivity to hot and cold foods for a day or two after the procedure.
