Why do I even need teeth whitening in the first place?

There are plenty of factors that can negatively affect the color of the teeth. Chief among them are food and beverages with dark pigments that literally stick to the teeth and stain them. These include items like coffee, wine, tea, darkly colored berries, and various sauces. Basically, if it will stain your shirt, it will stain your teeth!

Natural aging, genetics, and even some medications can discolor the teeth as well. Enamel naturally wears down over time, revealing more of the yellow dentin that lies underneath.

Our Teeth Whitening Options

If your teeth are slightly yellowish or brown, then teeth whitening is a great option for you. However, if they have more of a gray color, then they will likely not respond to bleaching, but we can help brighten them using treatments like porcelain veneers and direct bonding.

Our whitening treatments include:

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Perhaps you’re afraid the cost of teeth whitening is too pricey. Fair enough – an over-budget treatment won’t do your smile any good. The reality, though, is that teeth whitening’s price varies by patient. Thus, you’ll need to consult Dr. Chandy herself for a precise treatment estimate. Whatever the expense, though, trust that Aegis Dental will walk you through whitening’s financial details. To learn more, just keep reading or call us .

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

In general, teeth whitening usually has one set price. However, certain factors can affect how many treatments you’ll need for desired results. These include the following:

  • Stain Type – Whitening works best on extrinsic stains, those caused by foods and drinks. Meanwhile, it’s less effective at removing intrinsic stains – marks left beneath the enamel.
  • Stain Severity – Dark and severe tooth stains may need extra whitening sessions. In that case, your treatment expense would increase.
  • Preliminary Work – Some patients need prior procedures before a whitening treatment. If that applies to you, costs will rise.


Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

The price of teeth whitening also depends on the type. Therefore, your expense will depend partly on whether you get:


  • In-Office Whitening – The most traditional type, in-office whitening ranges from $400 to $800. It can, though, cost $1,000 or more in some scenarios.
  • Take-Home Whitening – When provided by a dentist, take-home whitening kits use custom-fit trays. As such, they usually cost a few hundred dollars.
  • OTC Whitening Trays – Since they aren’t custom-fitted, over-the-counter whitening trays cost $100 or less.
  • Whitening Strips & Gels – The cheapest option by far, teeth whitening strips or gels can be found at most stores. They cost $20-$40 per box and include enough strips for up to two weeks.


Inexpensive Teeth Whitening vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

If you’re surprised by professional whitening’s popularity, that’s only natural. You might think patients would prefer the cheaper choices. That said, there’s a good reason for this situation. 


You see, a dental treatment’s quality is reflected in its cost. Very cheap procedures will have poorer effects, while pricier services have better ones. Given this fact, cheap, store-bought strips and gels don’t work well. In contrast, costly whiteners lighten enamel in a short timeframe. Professional treatment, in fact, can whiten your smile by six to eight shades!


So, remember to consider whitening results in the future. If you don’t, you may not get the quality of care you want!

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure, so it’s hardly ever covered by dental insurance. Still, there are other ways to make it affordable. Here at Aegis Dental, for example, we provide:

  • Special Offers – As it happens, our practice is running a special on teeth whitening. For only $299, we can use Zoom!® whitening to brighten your smile by six to eight shades.
  • Flexible Financing – Our office works with Care Credit , a third-party financier. Through them, you could pay for whitening with low-interest installments.

Ultimately, you can trust Aegis Dental to brighten your smile in a budget-friendly way. With that said, please book a visit to our practice for more financial details.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

As long as you’re receiving whitening treatment from a qualified dentist, then your teeth and gums should be safe during the procedure. This is because our team uses professional-grade bleaching agents which are both more powerful and safer than store-bought products. Many of these items have no oversight from a licensed professional, and they can actually cause damage to your teeth. However, whether you choose our in-office or at-home whitening kit option, you can be sure the treatment will be specifically designed to address your unique smile.

Am I a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Are you unhappy with the color of your smile? Do you have one or multiple stubborn stains that won’t go away after brushing? If so, then you’re likely a good candidate for teeth whitening. You’ll have to schedule an initial consultation with us to be sure, as we’ll need to assess your oral health first. During your examination, our team will check if there are any underlying or developing issues like cavities or gum disease. After we’ve provided the necessary treatments, we can determine if your smile is healthy enough to undergo your chosen whitening procedure.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

While this may be a concern for many patients, you likely won’t feel much discomfort from professional teeth whitening. Not only are the bleaching agents safe for your pearly whites and gums, but your treatment will be customized for your dental needs. This means there’s less of a chance that you’ll experience any uncomfortable sensations in your smile. But if your teeth are prone to sensitivity, be sure to inform us so that we can adjust how we administer your treatment. We may provide you with prescribed toothpaste, space out your whitening appointments, or advise you against hot and cold beverages to minimize the discomfort.

How Can I Make My Whitening Results Last?

Once you have the bright smile of your dreams, you’ll want to make the most of them for as long as possible. This will depend heavily on how well you care for your teeth. Here are several practices to follow that can help you maintain your new and improved pearly whites:

  • Keep good dental hygiene (brush twice daily, floss once a day, rinse with mouthwash often)
  • Schedule routine checkups and cleanings with us every six months
  • Avoid poor oral habits, such as chewing on fingernails, using teeth as tools, and smoking
  • Reduce how frequently you consume dark-colored foods and drinks, like coffee and blueberries
