Are you thinking about getting your teeth whitened? If so, there’s never been a better time to get it done. There are actually a lot of different ways that you can get your teeth whiter. We’re going to go over the most popular ones below – along with average prices – so that you can choose which method is best for you.

Options for Teeth Whitening

Here’s a look at the different ways you can get your teeth whiter.

  • Homemade Teeth Whitening – If you’re feeling really confident and want to save some money, mixing up your own bleaching solution at home is one option that you have to get your teeth whiter. This is one of the cheapest options, with most of the materials needed costing under $10.

  • Whitening Toothpaste – Along with do it yourself teeth whitening kits that you can use at home, this is another solution that you can use by yourself. The good news is that this is a lot cheaper than visiting a dentist or even buying a teeth whitening kit. On the bad side, it’s going to take a couple weeks or more for you to see results. The cost for this method is only $5 to $15.

  • Kiosks for Bleaching – If you’ve seen these at your local mall, you may have been curious. Basically, some dentists are setting up in shopping malls in order to offer people a convenient way to get their teeth professionally bleached and whitened without having to go into the dentist’s office. This can cost anywhere from $40 up to $200 or more depending on various factors.

  • Whitening Strips – This is another way that you can get whiter teeth on your own at home. The cost for this is usually well under $30, although the cost is going to vary depending on where you buy the whitening strips and what brand you go with.

  • Custom Bleaching Trays – If you want something similar to what you would get at the dentist’s office, you might try custom bleaching trays you can put in at home. The negative is that this can cost anywhere from $100 up to $1,000 or more depending on a number of different factors.

  • Professional Teeth Whitening – You can get a brighter smile from your local dentist in just one hour. Cost will vary depending on the method used and on the dental office. Call your dentist to ask for a quote.

The best thing to do is to work to not let your teeth get yellow and stained in the first place. For example, if you enjoy xxx a delicious health drink that has a lot of fruit juice, you may want to make sure you brush your teeth right after you drink it. This can help cut down on the number of times you have to have your teeth cleaned professionally.
