Your teeth become naturally darker with time due to ageing or lifestyle choices such as drinking tea or coffee or smoking. Teeth whitening procedures can eliminate stains and restore your teeth to their natural colour. The cost of teeth-whitening varies depending on the product or method you choose.
Whitening toothpastes can remove stains only from the outermost layer of your teeth, but they usually cost less than 20 dollars.
Whitening strips are a step up from toothpastes because they contain bleaching agents. Whitening strips cost between 20 and 40 dollars.
In this method, a dentist prescribes a fitted mouthpiece and a strong bleaching agent for at-home use. These trays can cost between 400 and 1,000 dollars.
In this procedure, a dentist applies a strong bleaching agent directly to teeth, using a shield to protect gums. This procedure costs between 400 and 1,000 dollars depending on how many sessions are needed for the desired results.
Teeth-whitening procedures are not permanent. They last up to three years depending on you and your lifestyle choices.
