Why Choose Dr. Olga Kandov for Teeth Whitening?

How Does Zoom! Teeth Whitening Work?

When arriving for your appointment, Dr. Kandov will first place a guard around your lips and gums to prevent the bleaching solution from irritating these soft tissues. Once it is firmly in place, she will begin to apply the special hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth. Once a specialized light is shined onto your teeth, it will mix with the bleaching gel and penetrate the enamel, breaking up any stain molecules.

Depending on the desired shade, this process can be applied multiple times in order to achieve the necessary results.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Cost of teeth whitening

Achieving a brighter smile doesn’t come with a set price. The cost of teeth whitening is largely based on various factors that Dr. Kandov will determine when meeting with you during your initial consultation. Once she better understands the status of your smile as well as the severity of the stains, she can formulate a cost estimate and discuss available payment options to help you stay within your budget. Right now, we’re offering our patients 4 sessions of in-office teeth whitening and custom take-home whitening trays for only $549!

Factors that Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

The various factors that Dr. Kandov will consider when determining the cost of teeth whitening include:

  • How severe the stains on your teeth appear
  • The reasons for your tooth discoloration
  • The location of your tooth stains
  • If you require preliminary treatments to eliminate decay or gum disease

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

In-office teeth whitening

When choosing Dr. Kandov for teeth whitening, you can expect to see results in as little as one hour. Why? Because she offers in-office whitening, making it easy and convenient for patients who want to see a brighter smile in less time.

But just to give you an idea as to how much you can expect to pay for different types of teeth whitening, here are some cost estimates to consider:

  • Professional Teeth Whitening: On average, in-office teeth whitening can cost between $400-$500 but can go as high as $1,000 depending on the needs of the individual. Personalized professional at-home whitening kits run between $200-$300. Right now, our patients can get 4 sessions of in-office teeth whitening as well as customized take-home whitening trays for only $549!
  • Store-Bought Trays: It often costs less than $100 to purchase a store-bought whitening kit with trays.
  • Whitening Kit: The most affordable option is a store-bought whitening kit that is one-size-fits-all. These run between $20-$30.

Fast Teeth Whitening VS Inexpensive Teeth Whitening

It can be tempting to opt for store-bought whitening kits solely because of the price tag. However, it will likely cost you more in the long run because these products often lack the power to eliminate tooth stains. Unfortunately, many individuals end up paying more money for dull results, which can actually damage their smiles.

With in-office teeth whitening, not only is a skilled cosmetic dentist overseeing the process, but the results are evident within just one hour.

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Patient paying for treatment

Dental insurance is unlikely to cover the cost of teeth whitening simply because it is considered a cosmetic treatment. Because it is an “elective” service, Dr. Kandov offers other ways for patients to pay without having to give up their savings. This is accomplished through:

  • Dental Financing – With CareCredit, you can apply for a low-to-no interest payment plan that aligns with your budget. With no hidden fees or penalties, you can pay for your treatment monthly.
  • Dental Passport Program – Instead of financing, you can choose to enroll in our Dental Passport Program. This offers many of the same great benefits as traditional dental insurance, but you only have to pay one low, flat fee. Plus, you receive 20% off on whitening procedures!

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Shade guide for teeth whitening

If you are considering teeth whitening, there’s a good chance you have one or maybe even a few questions. Although this treatment is popular and extremely common, it does require that you understand the steps you’ll need to take to prepare and properly care for your brighter smile. If you would like to learn more, we’ve provided the answers to some of the most common questions asked by our patients over the years. If you don’t see yours listed, please feel free to contact our team.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

With a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Kandov, you don’t need to worry about teeth whitening causing any pain. Although it is possible to experience some slight sensitivity following treatment, it will dissipate quickly, unlike over-the-counter products that can make eating and drinking your favorite foods and beverages difficult days and even weeks later.

Should you normally suffer from sensitivity, we do suggest that you inform our team beforehand so that we can make sure to tailor your treatment plan accordingly. Your whitening session may need to be spread out further, and you may need to avoid certain hot and cold foods and beverages for a short amount of time.

What’s the Difference Between Professional and Store-Bought Teeth Whitening?

There are many drastic differences between professional and store-bought teeth whitening, some of which include:

  • The bleaching agent used in professional whitening is high grade and can eliminate stains beneath the enamel’s surface. Store-bought solutions are watered down and can only remove some surface stains.
  • Professional treatments are overseen by a qualified cosmetic dentist, whereas store-bought kits require you to perform and monitor your results on your own.
  • Seeing a trusted professional for whitening treatment will ensure the safety of your teeth and gums. When using a store-bought product, you run the risk of irritating your soft oral tissues if done incorrectly.

Does Teeth Whitening Work on Dental Crowns?

Unfortunately, dental crowns cannot be whitened because they are artificial. They are not porous like traditional tooth enamel, so the bleaching agent can’t penetrate to remove stains or discoloration. It is also possible that if you try to use teeth whitening to improve the color of your restorations, you might break down the bonding agent used to hold it in place. This can lead to another dental visit to try and reattach your customized restoration.

If you want to make sure your crown properly matches a whiter, brighter smile, you may need to talk to Dr. Kandov about undergoing teeth whitening before receiving a dental crown.

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?

No, teeth whitening is not permanent; however, it is possible that with regular care and maintenance, your results can last several months. The only way to extend the life of your brighter smile is to maintain optimal oral hygiene, stop smoking (if you do), eat healthy foods and cut back on sugars and starches, stop biting your nails and eating ice, and not using your teeth as tools. Also, you’ll want to avoid or limit your consumption of dark-colored foods and beverages that can easily stain your teeth.
