Teeth Whitening Options

Posted in Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening procedures are one of the most popular discussions in dental offices! Many people are not satisfied with the color of their teeth. There are so many options for whitening your teeth, how do you choose which teeth whitening option is best for you?

Here are a few of  the most prevalent teeth whitening methods:

  • Light-Activated Teeth Bleaching: In this category there are several choices for brands as well. You will need to check with your dental office to see what they offer. With this way of whitening your dental professional will put peroxide on your teeth and then a bleaching gel. Once both are applies then a blue light will activate the two on your teeth. The whole procedure takes around an hour in your dental office. This procedure will give you instant results. The cost ranges from $300-$600.
  • Tray Bleaching: With tray bleaching your dentist will make an impression of your teeth and then create a plastic tray that will fit into your mouth. This tray basically fits like a mouth guard. Then you simply put a bleaching gel inside the guard and wear them anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour a day until your teeth are the shade you desire. Using a tray bleaching procedure will cost you anywhere from $400-$1000.
  • Drugstore Teeth Whitening Kits: With this method of teeth whitening you will take strips that are covered with a peroxide gel and keep them on your teeth for up to 30 minutes. Using drugstore-whitening kits is best for someone with light staining and also plenty of good tooth enamel. They do work but they won’t achieve the whitening that you can get in a dental office.  These kits typically sell for around $15-$20 apiece.
