What Is the Cost of Teeth Whitening?
Hi, my name’s Dr Stefanie. I’m a dentist of Lifestyle Smiles. One of our patients Brian, from Sandringham, yesterday asked me about the cost of teeth whitening, so I thought I’ll make a video sharing with you what I shared with him.

Teeth whitening is a very popular cosmetic treatment. These days, people tend to desire straighter and whiter teeth. Generally speaking, there are two ways of doing teeth whitening. The first way is through a professional dentist, which is the way we recommend, and I’ll explain why shortly. The other way is to purchase products off the internet or through a local chemist, and a lot of times that’s a lot cheaper, and there are reasons why that’s the case.

As a dentist, I urge everyone to have a dental consultation and assess their teeth before doing any forms of teeth whitening, whether it’s professional or over the counter. The reason is that over the years people have come to me because they bought a product off the internet or off the shelf, and they had major issues with how the product was impacting their teeth, whether it is too strong for their teeth, or it was burning their gum. So regardless of what you choose, it is super important to double-check with a dentist in terms of the product that you’re using, how you’re using it, and also check your teeth to make sure that you are safe to do teeth whitening.

So what determines how much it costs with whitening your teeth with a professional dentist. Firstly, what is the colour of your current teeth? how yellow are they? and what sort of result do you want to achieve? If you have really yellow teeth, or even worse, like if your teeth are grey, or they’ve been stained by some form of antibiotic like Tetracycline, then they will naturally be alot more challenging to whiten, and will take a lot longer to treat.

So the duration which you need to whitening your teeth for, may affect the price of teeth whitening.

And sometimes… depending on the condition of your teeth and what your expectations are, teeth whitening just isn’t suitable.

What is the type of whitening products that your dentist use. There are so many brands out there. Most of them are quite similar, but doing teeth whitening through a company such as Zoom, which is a very well-known and established brand, can be slightly more expensive than other brands, which you may or may not have heard of. So the quality of the product and the brand can affect the price, but usually not by much.
Generally speaking, regardless of whether you choose to do In chair whitening, take home whitening, or a combination of both, teeth whitening is one of the most cost effective ways to improve your smile without blowing the budget. Typically, that could range anywhere between $300 to $900.

So that’s pretty much about it. Hope you got something out of this video.
