How Do Teeth Become Stained?

Does Teeth Whitening Work for Everyone?

Unfortunately, there are some situations where teeth whitening won’t work. For example, any discoloration caused by medications or an injury may make your teeth resistant to whitening efforts. Additionally, whitening won’t work on crowns, veneers or fillings. In fact, attempting to brighten porcelain or ceramic restorations could leave them looking dull and worn.

When you visit our office for an initial consultation, we’ll first assess your oral health to make sure there won’t be any hiccups that could derail your new smile. Then, based on the types of stains you have and your preferences, we’ll work with you to formulate the perfect plan to upgrade your appearance and send your confidence soaring.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Before you go all-in on any dental treatment, certainly you’ll want to be clear on what it’s going to cost. Below, we’ll touch on all the factors that impact the cost of teeth whitening in Manchester. Though it can vary from patient to patient, gaining a better understanding of the elements involved will help you know what to expect before your smile rejuvenation.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

While professional teeth whitening treatment has a preset cost, there are aspects regarding the particular patient that can make it more or less expensive, such as:

  • Preparatory treatments : If a patient has cavities or gum disease, these will need to be addressed first. Otherwise, teeth whitening may lead to further problems and may not yield optimal results.
  • The degree of discoloration : Severely stained teeth may require multiple treatments for the patient to achieve their desired shade.
  • The cause and location of the discoloration : Are your teeth stained due to an age-related issue or a medication you take? Is the staining located on the enamel surface or within your tooth?

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

  • Professional Take-Home Whitening Kit: For this, the dentist creates a customized set of trays and provides professional-strength whitening gel for the patient to use at home. Altogether, it usually costs a few hundred dollars.
  • Professional In-Office Whitening: The cost of in-office teeth whitening generally ranges from $400-800.
  • Store-Bought Whitening Kit: These trays and gel are available in most grocery stores and pharmacies, and the cost typically spans from $20-100.
  • Whitening Strips & Gels: This is easily the cheapest option. Strips in particular usually cost $20-40 for a box that lasts two weeks.

Store-Bought Teeth Whitening vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

If you prioritize cost when you pursue teeth whitening in Manchester, your wallet may appreciate it, but the impact on your smile likely won’t be what you were hoping for. Why is that the case?

For one, the products used by your dentist are several times stronger than anything you can find at the store. This enables your dentist to deliver much better, more noticeable results upon your smile. Also, the exam your dentist performs before proceeding with whitening treatment may be crucial. It could prevent you from accidentally irritating your mouth due to a cavity or infection that snuck under your radar.

While a professional treatment might be more expensive upfront, odds are you’ll end up enjoying your smile more and spending much less cash in the long term because you won’t have to bother with touch-ups every few weeks.

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Because teeth whitening is considered an elective procedure, it is very rarely covered by dental insurance. Fortunately, here at Fromuth & Langlois Dental, you don’t have to pay for the treatment entirely upfront. If needed, you can break up the cost with CareCredit’s low-to-no-interest financing. We also have an In-House Membership Plan which offers 10 percent off teeth whitening and other treatments, as well as an array of benefits at no extra cost! When you contact our office, be sure to ask us for details about either one of these options.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

If you aren’t happy with the appearance of your smile, you don’t need to settle for it. Teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to enhance the beautiful features of your smile. However, you may have some unanswered questions about the treatment. Here are the answers to some of the most common inquiries that we receive about teeth whitening in Manchester. If you don’t see your question listed below, don’t worry! Just give us a call and we’d be happy to provide you with the information you’re looking for.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Many patients are hesitant to commit to teeth whitening because they are worried that the procedure will hurt. Fortunately, professional whitening treatments are completely custom, so you are much less likely to experience discomfort than if you opted for a store-bought kit. If your teeth are more prone to sensitivity, let our dental team know. By spacing out treatments, avoiding hot beverages, and using a special toothpaste, this unpleasant sensation can be avoided.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Treatment Take?

Professional teeth whitening is both effective and can be completed fairly quickly. If you opt for in-office teeth whitening, your smile can be lightened up to 8 shades in a single visit. Take-home teeth whitening can gradually whiten your teeth over the course of just a couple weeks. If you have more pigmented discoloration, you may need additional whitening treatment to achieve your smile goals. If you want your pearly whites to be brighter by a certain date, let us know! This way, we can create a plan to help you get the results you’re looking for in time for the event.

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?

Teeth whitening isn’t a permanent treatment. Results will typically last anywhere from a couple months to a few years depending on how well you care for your smile. In order to prolong your results, you need to implement a solid at-home oral hygiene routine, attend your six-month checkups, and avoid poor dental habits. Touch-up treatments are also available to help maintain the whiteness of your teeth.

Does Teeth Whitening Work on Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns can’t be whitened like your natural teeth can. Whitening gels can actually weaken the bond between your tooth and restoration which can cause additional complications. This is why it’s so important that you share your dental history during your consultation. You can keep your dental crown from becoming discolored by following excellent oral hygiene practices and avoiding bad habits, like frequent consumption of dark-colored beverages and smoking tobacco products. If you don’t like the color of your dental crown, you can have it replaced to better match the rest of your smile.
