Cost Of Teeth Whitening

The cost of teeth whitening can vary a lot depending on what types of teeth whitening methods you are looking at. Here is a breakdown of the few ranges of prices and the results you can expect to find with different teeth whitening procedures.

Less Than $10

The cost of whitening teeth doesn’t get much cheaper than buying a box of baking soda or a tube of teeth whitening toothpaste.

Baking soda is a natural abrasive and can be use as a home remedy for stained and discolored tooth. However, be aware that baking soda is not effective when the stains are too deep, and it cannot generate immediate results. Neither is it a good long term solution to whitening teeth since it is quite abrasive and can damage the teeth enamel permanently if used frequently.

Practically, teeth whitening toothpastes cannot bleach or whiten your teeth however they can be used to remove mild surface stains on the teeth or help retain the whiteness of your treated teeth from other teeth whitening methods.

$20 To $80

This is the price range for over the counter strips and professional teeth whitening kits, trays or gels. A majority of these products are approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or American Dental Association (ADA) and can be either purchased online or at any major drug store outlet.

These kits generally have a lower peroxide concentration and will usually need 14 days or more to achieve noticeable results. However, with regular use, these kits can be just as effective as the treatment you would get from your dentist at a fraction of the cost.
