Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Coffee, tea, red wine, and blueberries are just some of the things that can contribute to tooth discoloration over the years. And it’s not just dark foods and beverages that stain your teeth. Medications, smoking, and the aging process itself can all play a role too. As you can see, it’s almost impossible to avoid tooth discoloration completely. However, professional teeth whitening offers a solution that can reverse the effects of these factors and bring out the brightness hiding in your dull smile. In short, if you are unhappy with your smile because of dental discoloration – even if it’s relatively minor – schedule an appointment with our Loveland dental team to see if you’re a candidate!

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

There are two types of teeth whitening treatments available at our Loveland dental office: in-office and take-home. We’ll provide you with all of the details at your initial consultation, but you’re also welcome to read on to learn more about each in the meantime!

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Our dental office features in-office treatment with Zoom! Whitening system. Zoom! is designed around the use of a special light in conjunction with the bleaching gel to speed up the process and whiten your smile quickly and easily in just one dental office visit. You get to enjoy the comfort of our dental office and undergo hassle-free whitening that can improve the look of your smile by several shades in one sitting. Patients who have an upcoming event, like a wedding or a class reunion, often opt for Zoom! Whitening to get ready and look their best.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

After you’ve undergone teeth whitening in the dental office with Zoom!, we can create a take-home custom whitening kit for follow-up and maintenance. You can also skip in-office whitening and simply use take-home whitening to gradually whiten your teeth.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

To maintain your bright, beautiful smile, we recommend:

  • Keeping foods like dark chocolate, blackberries, and tomatoes to a minimum
  • Using a straw when drinking coffee, wine, soda, and juice
  • Brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash consistently
  • Getting a dental checkup and cleaning twice a year
  • Quitting unhealthy dental habits, like smoking

Now that you understand more about teeth whitening in Loveland, it’s natural to wonder how expensive it is. The answer is somewhat different for everyone because it depends on your unique circumstances. There are a few different factors that influence the pricing, which we’ve covered in more detail below. Continue reading to learn more about what impacts how much your teeth whitening will cost! If you have additional questions, please contact us and one of our team members would be happy to help!

Factors That Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Although teeth whitening has a set pricing structure, there are a few variables that can impact how many treatments you’ll need to reach your desired result which affects the total amount due. Our team considers:

  • The severity of the stains or blemishes. Darker teeth may require additional procedures.
  • The types of discoloration present, which can include stains that are:
    • Age-related (due to thinning enamel or consuming foods that stain).
    • Caused by certain prescription medications.
    • Either extrinsic (located on the surface of your tooth) or intrinsic (originating inside your tooth).
  • Whether you require additional procedures, first, like filling a cavity or treating gum disease.

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

There is more than one way to achieve a brighter smile and each method has its pricing structure. You can expect to pay the following:

  • In-office procedures. These generally cost between $400 to $800, though in rare cases may reach up to $1,000+ depending on your circumstances.
  • Take-home kits. Typically, these include professional-grade gels along with customized trays and normally are a few hundred dollars.
  • Over-the-counter whitening trays. These don’t have customized trays but you’ll usually pay $100 or less.
  • Commercial teeth whitening strips. Many stores and pharmacies carry boxed sets of gels or strips that are often $20-$40.

Inexpensive Teeth Whitening vs. Professional Teeth Whitening

It’s natural to wonder, based on the above information, why you should invest in teeth-whitening with our experts as opposed to purchasing something from the store. That said, professional treatments have continued to gain popularity for good reasons.

When it comes to enhancing your teeth, the quality of the product can make a huge difference in both the results as well as your oral well-being. Over-the-counter solutions don’t always give you your desired outcome, especially if you have more severe stains. Plus, the bleaching agents may cause tooth or gum sensitivity.

Our experts use top-quality ingredients that are more powerful while minimizing tooth sensitivity, meaning that you’ll get faster results with less risk. A single, one-hour in-office appointment can lighten your grin by several shades. Plus, we offer take-home kits with customized trays that can get excellent results in just a week or two from the comfort of your home.

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic procedure because the intent is to enhance your appearance. That means most dental insurance policies don’t cover the expenses. Thankfully, we believe cost shouldn’t keep you from achieving a bright, beautiful smile! We offer in-house membership plans to make it more affordable. There are several levels at different price points so you can select the one that works best for your wallet. Each tier includes a 15% discount on procedures completed at our practice.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Are you debating whether a professional teeth whitening treatment is right for you? Our team at Gerome & Patrice Family Dentistry is here to help! If you have specific questions on your mind, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our knowledgeable team to provide you with the accurate answers you’re looking for. However, if you would simply like more information before moving forward, read on for a few frequently asked questions!

How Long Will the Results From Teeth Whitening Last?

Once you experience the confidence-boosting effects of a brighter smile, you’ll want the results to last as long as possible! Typically, you can enjoy your new and improved smile for a few months to a few years depending on how you care for it. For example, if you indulge in stain-causing oral patterns (like using tobacco products or drinking coffee daily), then the discoloration will resurface. However, if you keep up with your oral hygiene routine and avoid poor dental habits, then you can prolong the lifespan of your pearly whites.

Will Professional Teeth Whitening Compromise My Oral Health?

One amazing benefit of choosing Gerome & Patrice Family Dentistry is that we treat your smile with the safest materials and the latest techniques. From the whitening gel to the UV light, every product has been extensively tested to ensure your oral health is not compromised on your journey to whiter teeth. Plus, whether you are undergoing one treatment or need a few appointments to achieve your smile goals, Dr. Gerome and Dr. Patrice will supervise your care from start to finish!

What Types of Products Are Used For Professional Teeth Whitening?

Unlike over-the-counter options that promise powerful whitening effects but use ineffective ingredients, our products are designed to deliver the natural, beautiful results that you desire seamlessly. If you opt for an in-office treatment, then a professional-grade whitening gel and a powerful light are used to brighten your smile in record time. If you would prefer to correct stubborn discoloration from the comfort of your own couch, then we will create a custom kit for you to use that will gradually whiten your teeth!

How Does Teeth Whitening From a Dentist Differ From Store-Bought Kits?

Since store-bought kits are marketed as cost-effective alternatives to professional teeth whitening procedures, many patients looking to brighten their smile wonder how the two treatment options differ. Perhaps the biggest difference is that the choices available at your local store rely on one-size-fits-all trays and weak whitening agents to deliver results that are lackluster at best. On the other hand, our team at Gerome & Patrice Family Dentistry uses techniques and products approved by the American Dental Association that are reliable and personalized to your unique smile. If you would like additional information on how our treatment differs from over-the-counter alternatives, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Gerome and Dr. Patrice at your initial consultation!
