Teeth Whitening – Virginia Beach, VA

Let Your Real Smile Shine Through

Sometimes, it’s hard to admit that your once-white teeth have turned yellow. However, there are plenty of reasons why Virginia Beach patients may have stained teeth, including the fact that enamel is very porous and absorbs pigments from food, drink, and nicotine. Plus, the natural aging process wears away your enamel, revealing the yellowish dental layer beneath. Fortunately, our talented cosmetic dentists have a solution: teeth whitening! To learn all about this cosmetic dental treatment, schedule a consultation with our team or read on.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

When it comes to the cost of teeth whitening, you can expect to pay more than you would if you were to buy a store-bought kit, but your investment will last significantly longer. But when comparing the price of teeth whitening to the amount you would pay for another type of cosmetic care (i.e., veneers, metal-free restorations, etc.), you can expect that your expenses will be much less. Learn more about what is involved in creating the cost estimate that our team will go over with you during your consultation.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Several factors must be considered when creating a cost estimate for your teeth whitening treatment. At Smile By Design of Virginia Beach, our team will meet with you to discuss the following before determining how much the total investment will be:

  • The reasons for tooth discoloration
  • The severity of your stains
  • Where the stains exist (on the surface or deep below the enamel)
  • Whether you need preparatory treatments (i.e., gum disease treatment)

Each treatment plan is different, so do not anticipate spending the same amount as someone else.

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

It’s easy to assume that the best option is a simple, over-the-counter teeth whitening kit from your local drugstore, but there are several different whitening solutions available to choose from, each with a different price point:

  • In-Office: At Smile By Design of Virginia Beach, we provide in-office whitening. The average cost for this type of service is between $400-$500, but it can go as high as $1,000 or more depending on the severity of the stains.
  • At-Home: At-home whitening kits provided by your cosmetic dentist can range from $200-$300.
  • Store-Bought Trays: Store-bought whitening trays might seem like a good idea because they are only around $100, but you may not get the results you truly want.
  • Whitening Strips, Gels: Although they are the cheapest options available, whitening strips and gels will run you $20-$30 but are unlikely to keep your teeth white for long.

Fast Teeth Whitening VS Inexpensive Teeth Whitening

You cannot go wrong in choosing professional teeth whitening. Delivering results in just one hour, you can expect to see a whiter, brighter smile in little time. But the idea of spending a lot of money to have your teeth lightened might not seem like the best use of your hard-earned money, especially when there are countless products available on drugstore shelves.

The reality is that these products do not contain the high level of ingredients required to eliminate stains above and below the surface of your tooth enamel. As a result, you’re left to spend more over time, putting your smile at risk for increased sensitivity and enamel wear and tear.

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

At Smile By Design of Virginia Beach, we are pleased to make teeth whitening accessible and affordable for our patients. This is why we offer access to third-party companies that provide flexible financing. By enrolling with CareCredit, you can pay off your whitening treatment over time with the help of a low-or-no-interest payment plan.
