Teeth Whitening in Hewitt, TX
Brighten Your Smile
Everyone deserves a smile they can feel proud of. But if you have stained or discolored teeth, it can be difficult to smile with confidence. Thankfully, our Hewitt cosmetic dentists offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening options for your convenience.
What Causes Stained Teeth?
Teeth can develop stains for a variety of reasons, some of which include:
- Lack of Oral Hygiene — The most common way that teeth develop stains is due to a lack of oral hygiene. Make sure to brush and floss daily, in addition to visiting our office for biannual checkups.
- Tobacco — Smoking or chewing tobacco often leaves nicotine stains on your teeth, causing them to appear yellow.
- Some Foods and Beverages — Many popular drinks are known to stain teeth, including coffee, tea, red wine, and soda. Some foods may leave stains as well, such as berries, pomegranates, and curry.
- Certain Medications — Antibiotics like tetracycline or doxycycline may leave stains on your teeth.
- Aging — Your teeth will inevitably lose some of their natural whiteness as you get older. Stains may also appear in parts of your teeth where the enamel has worn down.
The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System uses customized trays and a patented bleaching gel to deliver stunning results in a short amount of time. It’s designed for comfort and convenience, allowing you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home without the need for special lights or lasers.
For patients who are in a hurry, we also feature an in-office option for faster results. If you choose this option, you can achieve your smile goals in just a few short appointments. Your dentist will still provide you with trays to take home for periodic maintenance, helping your new smile last for many years to come.
KöR whitening is strong enough to remove tetracycline stains, and you can even enjoy beverages like coffee and red wine after treatment without ruining your results. It’s also safe for ages 14 to 90, so teenagers and elderly patients can enjoy the same advantages.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is tooth sensitivity normal after a whitening treatment?
No, your teeth should not feel sensitive after a professional whitening treatment. Our practice proudly uses the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System to tackle deep stains and go beyond the tooth’s surface. It’s safe, strong, and provides results almost immediately after treatment. With KöR Whitening, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of teeth whitening without the damaging effects of store-bought treatments.
How can I maintain a whiter smile?
After a teeth whitening treatment, it’s important to take care of your smile to prevent further staining and avoid possibly damaging your teeth. Use a soft-bristled brush with lukewarm water when cleaning your teeth, and avoid hot or cold foods for at least a day. Our Hewitt dentists recommend increasing the time between treatments, lowering the amount of time spent whitening, and using less-concentrated bleaching gel.
How does KöR Whitening stand out from at-home whitening treatments?
The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System requires continuous refrigeration to ensure the gel is as fresh and potent as it was the day it was made. This incredible whitening treatment can brighten your teeth up to six shades, in as little as three appointments. After just two weeks, patients can expect incredible, unmatched results with a smile that’s up to 16 shades brighter.
What is the difference between in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments?
With in-office whitening treatment, patients can expect faster results and brighter effects. Here at Central Texas Dental Care, we use stronger, more effective bleaching concentrations that over-the-counter treatments can’t match. In-office whitening goes beyond surface-level stains and gets down to the enamel, while at-home whitening can only eliminate stains on the tooth’s surface.
