Teeth Whitening – Greensboro, NC

You Deserve a Brighter Smile

Unfortunately, dental discoloration is an inevitable aesthetic imperfection that happens to us all over time due to factors like aging and genetics. It can also happen due to preventable reasons, such as poor oral hygiene and bad habits such as smoking. Many patients visit their local department store in search of the perfect teeth whitening kit, but the truth is, over-the-counter teeth whitening won’t provide you with the beautiful and lasting results that you’re looking for.

That’s why cosmetic dentist, Dr. David Fisher offers professional take-home whitening that can have your smile up to ten shades whiter in a matter of two weeks. Because your cosmetic dentist in Greensboro uses trusted and tested ingredients, this treatment is completely safe for your mouth, so you won’t have to take a gamble on your oral health like you would with store-bought whitening products.

How Does Take-Home Teeth Whitening Work?

For patients who have busy schedules or would rather whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, take-home teeth whitening is ideal. When you visit our office, Dr. Fisher will take impressions of your mouth to model your whitening trays from. The precise fit will ensure that the whitening gel will evenly cover your teeth, so one area doesn’t appear whiter than another.

Once your trays are ready, you’ll receive your entire kit, complete with extra-strength whitening gel that’s significantly stronger and more effective than any over-the-counter kit. We’ll provide you with directions for how long to keep your trays on so you can achieve your ideal results. After about two weeks, you’ll notice that your smile is more beautiful and brighter than ever before.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

When it comes to choosing a cosmetic solution like teeth whitening in Greensboro, you’ll natural want to know how much it will cost. With so many solutions available over the counter at your local drug store, you may wonder why it is best to seek professional treatment when you can pay so little in the store. Although dental insurance is unlikely to cover the cost of this type of treatment because it is not “medically necessary,” you don’t have to settle for less. Instead, our team will be happy to go over affordable payment alternatives that will keep you well within your budget while achieving high-quality, long lasting results.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Although it is true that teeth whitening is a set price, there are factors that must be considered before we can give you the total amount for your treatment. Not all patients require the same number of treatments, which can make a significant difference in the overall cost of care. Also, the following criteria is also incorporated into your cost estimate:

  • The severity of your tooth discoloration
  • Where the stains are located (on the surface or inside the tooth)
  • The cause of your tooth stains and discoloration (i.e., age, medication, bad habits)
  • Whether or not you will require preliminary care to address cavities

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost?

Dr. Fisher is pleased to provide his patients with take-home whitening kits to brighten and whiten smiles. As a cosmetic dentist in Greensboro, he will work to ensure you receive the professional-grade products that are safe, effective, and will lend beautiful results in about two weeks. But how much can you expect to pay to receive these results? Let’s find out:

  • If you were to see a dentist for in-office whitening, it would roughly cost between $400 and $800. In certain cases, it can go as high as $1,000 or more.
  • If you prefer a take-home whitening kit, these come with customized trays that are created using digital impressions taken of your smile. As a result, these can cost a few hundred dollars.
  • Should you opt for an over-the-counter whitening tray that is not customized to your smile, you can expect it to be more affordable (around $100 or less).
  • If the cheapest option is what you’re looking for, store-bought whitening strips or gels will only cost you between $20-$40 per box, and you’ll have enough to treat your teeth for roughly two weeks.

Fast Teeth Whitening VS Inexpensive Teeth Whitening

As you compare the price ranges above, you may be thinking to yourself that an over-the-counter whitening kit is a no-brainer solution. But before you move in that direction, you’ll want to think about the actually price you’ll pay to receive a whiter smile. Just because these kits are cheaper does not mean you’ll achieve your desired results. Most of these products only treat surface stains, never reaching those deep inside your teeth. Also, over-the-counter kits do not use the highest concentration of hydrogen peroxide like most licensed professionals do. As a result, you’ll be left with lackluster results.

Although you will pay more for Dr. Fisher to provide you with professional, custom-made whitening trays, you will find the results and longevity of your brighter smile is well worth the investment.

Options for Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

If you’ve ever wanted to have a brilliantly white smile like all of your favorite celebrities, look no further than our professional teeth whitening treatment. Our ultra-potent bleaching solution can clear away years and years of built-up stains to reveal the pearly white enamel underneath. To help you better understand this treatment and make the right decision for your smile, we’ve included this section with the answers to some teeth whitening FAQs in Greensboro.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

It should be noted that professional teeth whitening services tend to cost more than over-the-counter products. However, when it comes to dental care, you generally get what you pay for. You might not achieve the results you want with a store-bought solution, but our treatment can dramatically transform your smile. Most of our patients who have gotten their teeth professionally whitened have said it was worth every penny.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance?

Dental insurance carriers typically do not pay for the cost of elective procedures like teeth whitening. Our team would be happy to take a look at your plan though, just in case you qualify for coverage. We are in-network with many dental insurance providers. We also partner with CareCredit to help you finance your care with a low-to-no interest loan.

Also, we offer a FREE cosmetic consultation to help you decide whether teeth whitening or any other cosmetic treatment is right for you.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Depending on how well you take care of your teeth after finishing treatment, you can expect your results to last several months to a year or possible even longer. Generally, you can prolong the lifespan of your results by:

  • Avoiding staining foods and drinks
  • Sipping these drinks through a straw when possible
  • Abstaining from smoking
  • Diligently brushing and flossing each day
  • Seeing us for a checkup and cleaning twice a year

Are There Any Health Benefits to Teeth Whitening?

Believe it or not, getting your teeth whitened may actually benefit your oral health. After you’ve spent time and money brightening your smile, you’ll naturally want to keep it that way. As a result, you’re more likely to brush, floss, and attend dental cleanings regularly.

Do I Have to Do Anything Special Before Getting My Teeth Whitened?

There is nothing particular that you have to do before whitening. It’s worth mentioning, however, that the treatment works best on teeth that are free of plaque and tartar. Therefore, we typically recommend that you get a cleaning beforehand. Not only will it greatly improve your results, but it lowers your risk for oral health problems like cavities.
