Teeth Whitening: Do-It-Yourself vs Done for You (Dentist)

You want whiter teeth, but the sticker price at your dentist office scares you. This is the biggest setback for many people who want to improve their smile. They want whiter teeth but they also like the feel of money in their pocket.

The truth is at-home teeth whitening products aren’t always cheap, either. In order to be effective you need to purchase the products with higher peroxide strengths and those products tend to be higher in price than products with lower peroxide strengths.

In fact, what makes your dentist’s teeth whitening procedure so expensive is the fact that they are using professional strength peroxide. So, what’s the solution? How do you save the most money possible while still getting that bright white smile you desire? Go through these simple steps to make your final decision:

  1. Price the procedure at your dentist’s office. If you can afford it, go with it for maximum results. If you can’t afford it, move to the next step.
  2. Do some research to discover at-home products with higher strengths of peroxide.
  3. Price the higher strength products and go with the highest strength you can afford. This will likely give the best whitening results.
