The Best Teeth Whitening Method in Boca Raton, Florida
In the past 10 or so years, we have had a huge increase in the amount of people looking to improve their smile by straightening or changing the shape of their teeth, or brightening their smile a few shades whiter.
The reason for the influx in cosmetic dentistry is that the technology to create more beautiful and attractive smiles has become more accessible for common people. Cosmetic dentistry cost has fallen and what was once relegated to Hollywood and the richest people, now people of all ages are getting cosmetic works done.
The most popular demographics for cosmetic dentistry are people from the age group of thirty to fifty and predominantly women.
Teeth whitening at dentist office is by far the best, most effective, longest lasting method. It is, however, more expensive than the other methods.
How to whiten teeth is something that we have been considering for years.
We have perfected our craft, resulting in hundreds of satisfied clients in and around the Boca Raton area. We have done laser teeth whitening for the majority of clients, providing for whiter smiles and perfect pictures.
Teeth bleaching cost has hovered around $500 to $600 for over a dozen years. The process works like this:
- We apply a bleaching agent across the teeth, ensuring that the results will be a uniform shade of white.
- We’ve then dry this bleaching agent using LED or UV light, depending on your situation.
- During this time the stains on the teeth are broken apart and dissolved.
- Boom! Whiter teeth!
However, the bright shade of white does not last forever, end results will vary but it is likely that you will need to have repeat bleaching every few years in order to maintain your new shade of white.
As teeth whitening dentist specialists we will tell you that not all teeth are created equal. Heredity, dietary, and smoking habits can all have an impact on the color of your teeth.
Best Over The Counter Teeth Whitening
Are you looking for a cheaper alternative to having your teeth brightened in an office? You can find many teeth whitening products over-the-counter.
These products include teeth whitening strips and teeth whitening trays.
The treatment may take a little bit longer. Usually treatment is administered by you, at home, over 2 to 3 weeks. In general costs for such products are less than $100.
If your teeth are not the shade of white you want but also oddly shaped, you may be an ideal candidate for tooth veneers. There are two types:
- Composite veneers
- Porcelain veneers
Veneers cost between $500 and $5000, depending on how many teeth you are looking to cover up.
A veneer is a thin sheet of material that is applied over the tooth (teeth) in question to either give it a more attractive look and shape and/or to hide unattractive color or stains.
Lumineers cost a bit more, but are a great option if you have no stains to hide. As the material is thinner, there is the possibility of stains and yellowing being seen from the exterior. Veneer cost is rarely covered by partial dental insurance, a good portion of the cost may be coming out of your pocket.
The best dental insurance plans will provide you with absolute flexibility in deciding which dentist you want to have your cosmetic works done. If you’re considering cosmetic dental works in the future, we suggest you get a dental insurance quote now, suggesting that you will be having cosmetics in the near future.
Be sure that if you elect to take an elective procedure, that your oral health is in excellent condition. Meaning, x-rays are recent, no cavities, and definitely without gingivitis.
