Tooth whitening can effectively brighten your smile for an enhanced appearance and increased self-confidence. There are several different tooth whitening methods, so the cost of your treatment will depend on the procedure you choose. At Desert Smiles in Phoenix, Arizona, Dr. Donald Wilcox, DDS offers in-office power bleaching and customized take-home trays so you can choose the tooth whitening option that is right for your smile and budget. In-Office Tooth Bleaching In-office power bleaching is the most powerful and effective tooth whitening treatment, and also the most expensive.
Dentist-dispensed take-home trays whiten your teeth about four to five shades. They are designed to fit your individual bite and cost between $200 and $600. Over-the-counter whitening trays cost between $40 and $100, but utilize a one-size-fits-all approach and are not as effective as customized home trays. Whitening strips cost about $25 and may brighten your smile one or two shades but they can be difficult to work with. Whitening toothpastes, which cost under $10, may remove surface stains and brighten your overall smile.
