Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

If you have stains or discoloration, there is a good chance you are eligible for teeth whitening. However, it is important that you have good general oral health before starting any cosmetic treatment. After discussing your medical history and pinpointing the areas that need to be treated, we will formulate a personalized treatment plan. This will include an explanation of the process as well as the cost and what you can expect when it comes to maintaining your results.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Using Zoom! teeth whitening in our dental office, you can expect to see beautiful results in less time. Unlike over-the-counter kits that you can buy at your local drug store, our team will provide a much more effective whitening treatment.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

When meeting with our dental team, we will use Zoom! products to apply the professional-grade whitening gel before allowing it to penetrate the initial layer (the enamel). Breaking up and blasting away stains and discoloration on and below the surface, you’ll notice a smile that is several shades brighter in about an hour.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

To ensure that you get the most out of your teeth whitening experience, you should remember to do the following:

  • Maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home that includes brushing twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and rinsing with an ADA-approved mouthwash. Be sure you do not use traditional toothpaste, as this can be too abrasive.
  • Limit the amount of dark-colored beverages and foods you consume (i.e., soda, coffee, tea, red wine, etc.).
  • See your dentist in Philadelphia for regular six-month checkups and cleanings.
  • Quit smoking and using tobacco products that weaken your immune system and cause staining.
  • Ask about touch-ups should you notice any yellowing occur.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

As much as you may want teeth whitening, you should learn its price first. You’ll likely exceed your budget if you don’t. That said, the cost of teeth whitening varies by patient. You can only get a precise estimate by consulting our dentists in person. When you do, our dental team can find ways to make your care more affordable. We’ll even walk you through whitening’s cost factors, types, and payment options. Please keep reading for more details, or call us soon.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Since it affects your whole grin at once, a whitening treatment usually has a set price. Still, factors can influence how many sessions you need for desired results. These include the following:


  • Your Stains’ Severity – The darker and deeper your tooth stains, the more they’ll cost to remove. Patients may need many sessions to clear up severe discoloration.
  • Your Stains’ Type(s) – Your stains’ type also shapes whitening’s cost. For instance, extrinsic stains are often fixed in one session. In contrast, intrinsic ones (i.e., those beneath the enamel) aren’t easily erased.
  • Need for Extra Services – You may need other services besides a whitening treatment. (Dental crowns, fillings, etc.) If so, the cost of your overall care will rise.


Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

In reality, teeth whitening comes in different kinds. Which of its type you choose will impact your treatment price. The four available options are:


  • In-Office Teeth Whitening – When done in-office, teeth whitening costs roughly $400-$800. However, its price can reach $1,000 or more at times.
  • Take-Home Teeth Whitening – A take-home whitening kit is usually a few hundred dollars, at least when a dentist provides it. This cost reflects the kit’s custom trays and bleaching gel.
  • “Over-the-Counter” Teeth Whitening – Over-the-counter teeth whitening isn’t customized for your teeth. Due to using generic trays, it often costs $100 or less.
  • Teeth Whitening Strips/Gels – Most stores now carry teeth whitening strips and gels; they’re the least costly whitening option. In fact, a single box of strips only costs around $20-40.


Store-Bought Teeth Whitening vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

When you first consider it, you may be confused by pro whitening’s popularity. One could assume that people would like less expensive options. Even so, there’s a reason for this high regard. Dentist-approved methods have excellent qualities that reflect their price.


As proof, look at the traits of the different whitening methods. Strips and gels don’t cost much, but they don’t work well either; most take months to show any effect. Meanwhile, pro whitening is pricier but offers fast and clear results. It’ll leave your grin several shades whiter after only a treatment or two.


Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

In most cases, dental insurance doesn’t cover teeth whitening. It views brightening work as a needless luxury. Luckily, other methods can make whitening affordable. The most notable ones are a practice’s financing options. With the right one, your whiter teeth will be budget-friendly.


Consider our own Dentex Dental Group of Philadelphia. Today, we offer third-party financing through reputable financiers. They’d allow you to pay for a whitening treatment in monthly installments. As a result, a brighter smile wouldn’t strain your finances as much.
