What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Tooth discoloration can be attributed to genetics, but it is also caused by other factors, like age. Over the years, your enamel naturally thins, causing more of your yellowish dentin to be visible. Besides your genetic makeup and your age, other issues can influence the color of your teeth, like poor oral hygiene, consuming darkly pigmented foods and drinks, or smoking.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

At the first sign of discoloration, you might have turned to a few over-the-counter whitening products to reverse stains. Although whitening strips, toothpaste, and mouth rinses are affordable and widely available, you won’t achieve the results you want because they aren’t professional grade, so any results will be minimal, and they won’t last.

If you want noticeable improvement, you’ll need the help of your dental team at Cosmetic & Family Dentistry of Weatherford. Our systems contain professional-grade whitening agents that deeply penetrate the enamel to dissolve stubborn stains. Your teeth can become 4-8 shades brighter with results that can last with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene and avoiding stain-causing foods.

What are My Options for Teeth Whitening?

During your initial consultation, we’ll pinpoint the cause of your discoloration and stains to create a customized treatment plan.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments, and it’s often one of the first ones that people will try out. That being the case, you might not know what it’s like to pay for dental care that won’t be covered by insurance.

Fortunately, we make it as easy as possible to help you afford the dental care that you receive from us. Here’s what you should know about the financial component of your whitening treatment.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is typically offered at a set price. However, if you need multiple rounds of teeth whitening, this can increase the overall cost of your procedure.

This is sometimes necessary in the case of extremely severe stains or discoloration. There are also some kinds of discoloration that are intrinsic to the tooth, like those from aging; this is a little bit harder to deal with than extrinsic discoloration from stains on the surface of the tooth.

It’s also important that your teeth are in generally good health before you take on teeth whitening. For this reason, some patients may need a filling or dental crown before pursuing whitening.

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

You might be aware of the fact that there are various different kinds of teeth whitening available to you. Each of these whitening solutions has its own advantages, as well as its own price point.

In-office teeth whitening will be completed at our practice, typically within the course of a single hour. This is usually the most expensive option. In-office whitening generally costs anywhere between $400-800 dollars.

Professional take-home whitening is completed from the comfort of your home using specialized whitening trays. This process will usually take a 2-3 weeks to get results and will cost somewhere in the realm of a few hundred dollars.

Then there are the DIY whitening kits that you can get from the store. These tend to produce poor results but are undeniably cheaper than what we would offer you. DIY whitening trays will typically run you around $100, while whitening strips are generally around $40 per box.

Fast Teeth Whitening VS Inexpensive Teeth Whitening

Given how much cheaper store-bought whitening solutions are, you might wonder why anyone would invest in professional whitening treatment. The answer is that the whitening kits you’d buy from the store simply aren’t all that effective.

For one, the gel used in these kits is much less concentrated than what you’d get from us. This means that they won’t be able to whiten your smile to nearly the same extent. It can also be dangerous to use whitening solutions without supervision from a dentist, as any cavities or tooth decay you aren’t aware of could cause the whitening gel to come in contact with the sensitive interior of your tooth.

While store-bought whitening is absolutely cheaper, it’s not worth paying anything at all for a treatment that won’t work. If you really want a whiter smile, it’s best to talk to a professional.

Options For Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Given that teeth whitening is a purely cosmetic procedure, you generally can’t expect it to be covered by insurance. However, that doesn’t mean that the dental care has to be unaffordable. If you’re worried about paying for the entirety of your dental treatment in one lump sum, you might be interested in financing services from CareCredit.

This financing firm can be used to divide the cost of your dental care across several months, often with little-to-no interest. If you want to learn more, we’ll be happy to tell you more about your financial options at your consultation.
