Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

While professional teeth whitening is one of the most cost-effective methods for upgrading your pearly whites, you’ll want to know what to expect when it comes to paying the bill. Our team offers a couple of options for brightening your grin, and it’s also a good idea to see how they compare with store-bought cosmetic products. We’ll review your situation during your consultation as well as the factors that can influence the overall price of your procedure. Until then, here’s what you should know about the cost of teeth whitening. 

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

While this professional cosmetic dental service typically comes at a set fee, several factors can impact how much you’ll end up paying for the process to achieve your dental goals. These can include:

  • The kind of discoloration: Extrinsic (outer) stains will usually be much easier to lift compared to intrinsic (inner) stains, making them cost less in most cases.
  • The severity of staining: The more discolored your smile is, the more treatment you might require, which can increase the overall price to help you reach your cosmetic goals.
  • Preliminary treatments: If you have underlying issues like gum disease or tooth decay, we’ll need to address these before going forth with your teeth whitening, increasing the end value of your dental care.

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

With several kinds of teeth whitening treatments and products out there, here’s what you should know about each option:

  • In-office teeth whitening: This treatment has the highest upfront value, typically ranging from $400-$800—even over $1,000 in some instances.
  • Take-home teeth whitening: These custom professional whitening kits can often be priced at several hundred dollars.
  • Store-bought whitening trays: These over-the-counter trays can be purchased at your local drug store at about $100 or less.
  • Over-the-counter gels/strips: As the most affordable solution, you can usually buy a box for $20-$40.

Inexpensive vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

When it comes to upgrading your pearly whites, going for the solution with the lower cost isn’t always the best idea. Though it might seem like it’ll save you money, many of these products don’t provide the same level of results and aren’t as safe for your teeth and gums as professional treatment. In some cases, you might have to get touchups more often than you would with your dentist, meaning you’ll spend more on over-the-counter products in the long run. With professional teeth whitening, you can enjoy amazing results that can last much longer, giving you more bang for your buck!

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Most cosmetic dental services won’t be eligible for dental insurance coverage. Still, this doesn’t mean you won’t have other ways to make your treatment more manageable for you. To help you afford your dental care without worrying much about breaking the bank, our team offers a dental savings plan that can get you discounts on various options, including teeth whitening. We’re also partnered with CareCredit—a third-party financier that can turn your overall cost of treatment into low-to-no-interest monthly installments!
