Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

There are many different ways that teeth can become stained. Here are some of the most common ones:

  • Aging
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Sugary and acidic foods
  • Using tobacco products
  • Pigmented foods and beverages
  • Genetics
  • Some medications

Some types of discoloration can be prevented, but others may not be in your control. There are two types of tooth discoloration: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth and are typically caused by foods, beverages, and tobacco products. Intrinsic stains are a result of medications, so this is something you should discuss with your doctor.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

In the world of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening is the easiest way to get started. Not only is it the simplest treatment but also the least expensive, so it’s a great option if you’re on a tight budget and only need to brighten your smile.

However, you may still have concerns about the cost. We are happy to explain everything when you come in for your consultation to talk specific numbers. In the meantime, here is some useful information for you to consider.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Typically, teeth whitening is offered at a set price, but your treatment could cost more if your discoloration is stubborn or requires multiple rounds of whitening.

Fortunately, before we move forward with the whitening procedure, we check to make sure your teeth and gums are generally healthy. If they aren’t, we’ll resolve those issues first. Once your mouth has cleared inspection, we can then focus on whitening your smile.

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

When you go to the store, you may find teeth whitening products that cost less than $40 all the way up to $100 for “more effective” results. In stark contrast, in-office teeth whitening at other practices can cost up to $1,000! At Distinctive Dentistry by Mullens & Nguyen, we offer KöR take-home whitening kits, which usually cost a couple hundred dollars. This reasonable rate gives you more affordability without sacrificing quality and your satisfaction with the results.

Inexpensive Teeth Whitening vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

At first glance, take-home whitening may seem a lot like the cheap (in every sense of the word) products you find at the store. However, these commercial products are inexpensive for a reason—the concentration of peroxide is much lower, which means you’ll see only a couple of shades of difference. On the other hand, when you pay a couple hundred dollars at our office for KöR take-home kits, you can expect to see eight or even ten shades brighter. In other words, you get what you pay for!

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

As an elective, cosmetic procedure, teeth whitening is rarely covered by dental insurance plans. As a result, you will be responsible for paying the entire cost. However, we can work with you and find a financial solution that works for everyone. For example, you may be able to finance the cost with CareCredit, which breaks up the cost into smaller monthly payments.

Also, be sure to check on our special offers. Sometimes, we offer discounts or seasonal promotions that you might want to take advantage of!

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

If you aren’t confident about your smile thanks to stubborn stains and pigmented discoloration, you may be a candidate for teeth whitening! The best way to determine whether teeth whitening is right for you is to schedule an appointment with us. This way, we can examine your teeth and learn more about the goals you have for your smile. If your teeth and gums are in good shape, we can move forward in the whitening process. If there are any issues, we can put together a treatment plan.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Treatment Take?

Professional teeth whitening is much more effective and faster than over-the-counter teeth whitening options. Professional take-home teeth whitening gradually whitens your smile over the course of a couple of weeks. However, if you have more pigmented discoloration, you may need additional treatments to get to the shade that you desire. If you have a big event coming up that you want your teeth to be brightened for, let us know so you can show off a whiter smile just in time!

Is Teeth Whitening Expensive?

Compared to other cosmetic services, like veneers, teeth whitening is very cost-effective. Opting for third-party financers, like CareCredit, can make treatment fit into your budget even better by breaking up the cost into manageable monthly installments. You should also be on the lookout for our special dental offers. This way, you can brighten your smile without breaking the bank!

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

When it comes to your teeth, you shouldn’t be taking any risks! That’s why it’s crucial that you only use products that are designed specifically for your teeth and gums. Products that have not been approved by the FDA and ADA have not undergone testing, so they could potentially be harmful. Fortunately, professional whitening treatments are extremely safe. In addition to being provided to you by a licensed professional, your custom trays will ensure that the solution does not spread to your gums or accidentally get ingested. The percentage of the solution is also adjusted to guarantee that you achieve your result safely.
