Professional teeth whitening cost
Useful information like teeth whitening cost, the actual procedure, and aftercare instruction will help you make the best decision for yourself.
You are considering whitening your teeth to get your confident smile back? There are typically 2 common options for this: at-home and in-office teeth whitening. To know which one fits you, you can learn about the cost and benefits of teeth whitening, as well as aftercare instructions in addition to consulting with your dentist.
The advantages of in-office teeth whitening
There are certain advantages, including:
- Guaranteed safety
- Quick results
- Tooth and gum sensitivity can be managed
The disadvantages of in-office teeth whitening
- A significant difference between at-home and in-office teeth whitening cost
- The results may not turn out as expected since they depend on several factors such as age, genetics, and the severity of tooth discoloration
- The stains and plaque will still build up on your teeth after the procedure. Therefore, monitoring in conjunction with a teeth whitening method with a lower chemical concentration at home is necessary to maintain the white color and shiny shade of your teeth.
Types of teeth that should be whitened at a dental clinic
You should have your teeth whitened at a dental clinic if the main causes of your tooth discoloration are:
- Frequent intake of dark-colored vegetables, fruits, wine, coffee, and soft drinks
- Aging. Your teeth will get darker, staining yellow, brown, and blue-grayish over time (due to genetics or eating habits). Yellow teeth are the most likely to respond well to whitening treatment.
Types of teeth that can be whitened at home
At-home teeth whitening should be done instead of in-office teeth whitening in certain cases, including:
- Tooth damage that results in dark dentin
- Excessive contact with fluoride, resulting in fluorosis and, thus, a change in teeth color
- Long-term use of powerful antibiotics that affects the tooth enamel, causing tooth discoloration
- Stains that don’t respond well to in-office teeth whitening.
People that are not eligible for in-office teeth whitening
Despite its advantages, this dentistry procedure may not be right for you if you:
- Are under 18 years old
- Have visible tooth filling and plastic crowns
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have sensitive teeth and gums. To prevent overreaction, your dentist can recommend at-home teeth whitening with a low concentration of carbamide peroxide
- Stubborn stains. Some stains can resist strong whiteners used at dental clinics. In such cases, you may need an intensive at-home teeth whitening plan or alternatives for hydrogen peroxide such as dental veneers, crowns, and fillings
- Have transparent teeth due to old age, especially the weakened front teeth caused by aging.
Preparation for teeth whitening
To prepare for the procedure, your dentist will carry out the following steps:
- Your teeth are cleaned to remove all the plaque, food particles on the surface and between teeth.
- Next, your dentist will perform further examination to check for underlying issues such as severe tooth decay, cracks, and gum disease.
- Photos of your tooth shape and color are also taken to compare with the color scale, giving your dentist a more precise look at the produced changes
The cost of in-office teeth whitening
The cost of teeth whitening is a big concern no matter which treatment options you go with. Dental clinics typically charge quite different prices for each type of service. However, the average teeth whitening cost is about 3,000,000 VND for all of your teeth per in-office visit and about 2,000,000 for each jaw if done at home.
On the other hand, do not ignore the service quality that can be seen through certain factors. There are many cases where people believe in advertisements promising optimal results for cheap teeth whitening services and go to low-quality dental clinics. As a result, not only their teeth get darker but they also become more sensitive, even resulting in damage to the enamel – not to mention some clinics give a rather vague cost listing, making the customers feel like they are gaining benefits and then taken aback when being charged with unexpected extra cost.
Therefore, be careful when you place your trust to avoid paying to do more harm than good. All things considered, The East Rose Dental (Old Rose Dental Clinic) with modern facilities and equipment as well as a team of qualified technical specialists from various prestigious universities around the world will bring you a white, shiny smile at a reasonable cost that is published transparently and clearly as follows:
