Are you in need of teeth whitening treatment? Maybe you’ve noticed lately when you smile in the mirror or look at pictures of yourself that your teeth are starting to yellow. Gradual discoloration of teeth is perfectly normal, but it can still make you feel self-conscious.
Professional teeth whitening treatment can give your dramatically whiter teeth in just one day. In-office whitening treatment applied by your dental office is the fastest, most effective option.
How much does teeth whitening cost? The short answer is: it depends. The long answer is as follows:
Over the Counter Teeth Whitening Products
Teeth whitening is quite a large market. There’s a wide range of teeth whitening products you can buy at the store or order online that may help to whiten your teeth. From toothpaste to mouthwash to plastic strips you place over your teeth, you can expect to pay anywhere from $5 for toothpaste to $40 or $50 for whitening strips. These products may offer mediocre results that typically don’t last very long. The cost of whitening strips can really add up over time. You may think it’s the cheaper option, but not in the long run.
In-Office Professional Teeth Whitening
Your dentist, and or dental professional can apply a professional grade teeth whitening treatment in the office that will provide dramatic results in just one day. The bleaching agent is applied to the teeth and a specialized LED light is used to activate it and accelerate the whitening process. Your teeth will already be shades whiter when you walk out of the dentist’s office following treatment. The average cost of in-office teeth whitening is around $500-$600. At Dental Partners of Vero Beach, teeth whitening services includes custom take home trays with solution for touch ups.
What Other Factors Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening?
Many different factors weigh in on the average cost range of teeth whitening treatments, such as:
- A dental examination, Diagnostic X-Rays and a Comprehensive Cleaning may be required prior to receive in office teeth whitening treatment. Patients who have compromised teeth and or oral health may not be immediate candidates for teeth whitening.
- Number of Treatments. Whitening treatments often work well the first time, but sometimes repeat treatments are necessary to get the desired results. Each teeth whitening treatment administered will add to the total cost.
