There are plenty of teeth whitening options, including over-the-counter teeth whitening strips and professional in-office whitening treatments.
How much does teeth whitening cost? The cost of professional teeth whitening can range as high as $650, depending on the treatment type. In this article, we’ll look at the cost of teeth whitening and help you decide if teeth whitening is right for your child.
Teeth whitening should be approached with caution and is not recommended for children who do not have all of their adult teeth. Even children who have all of their adult teeth can be at risk for developing tooth sensitivity issues where the teeth become very sensitive to extreme temperatures and hot or cold food and beverages.
If you decide that something must be done about teeth discoloration, there are several teeth whitening treatments available:
The cost of teeth whitening treatments can vary widely. For example, a tube of teeth whitening toothpaste costs around $4. The cost of professional teeth whitening can vary, as well. In-office bleaching can cost up to $650.
