Hi, Dr James here, and I’m one of the principal dentists at Elevate Dental. Yesterday, I was speaking with one of our patients Emma from Glen Iris, at a smile consultation appointment, and she asked me, “How much does teeth whitening cost?” So I thought I would share what I discussed with her in this video with you.
There are so many teeth whitening options nowadays. Prior to seeing me, patients have tried either over-the-counter products, products sold online, or even walk-in treatments at beauty salons and shopping centres. These have either proven to be completely ineffective or, worse, caused long-term damage to the health of the teeth and gums, that often costs much more to fix.
In our opinion, the safest options are either an in-chair teeth whitening at a dentist, which can range from 650 to 850 dollars, depending on the brand and technology that is used, and the length of the treatment, or the professional grade take home application kit, which can range from 320 to 450 dollars. Once again, it will depend on the brand that is used, the strength of the solution, and the quantity that is formulated for you. In addition, you can also have a professional-grade top-up kit, which is perfect if you’ve done previous whitening treatments before, and they can start from as little as 99 dollars..
One major factor that will significantly impact the price of your teeth whitening treatment is the condition of your teeth. This means the cause of the discolouration, how discoloured they are, and how white you want your teeth to be.
Teeth whitening is a great and cost effective way to upgrade your smile. I hope this video gives you a better understanding of your teeth whitening options and the price for each. If you are exploring this popular treatment, we can give you professional guidance on this.
