How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

A bright smile is considered a sign of youth and vitality, mainly because the older we get, the more coffee, tea, or tobacco stains take hold of our pearly whites and dull them. For many people, they hide their smile out of self-consciousness, or worse, they don’t smile at all. Dr. Amin Samadian firmly believes that a dull smile isn’t just a cosmetic issue, it’s a quality of life issue.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Zoom teeth whitening gets below the surface of your teeth much better than any whitening toothpaste, at-home strips, or over-the-counter whitening gel. Stains get embedded deep after a lifetime of drinks that stain, such as coffee or wine, and foods that linger, such as marinara sauce, curry, or berries. 

Zoom teeth whitening is a light-activated gel with a 35% hydrogen peroxide concentration—stronger than any over-the-counter product—that works to brighten your teeth 6-10 shades lighter in a single treatment. The gel is applied to your teeth three times during your 1-hour appointment, and the Zoom light activates the gel. The gel’s oxygen molecules break up under the light, disrupting even deep stains. 

What is the Procedure Like?

Your level of brightness is chosen from Dr. Samadian’s shade guide, and your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and polished for the best possible adherence to the gel. Your lips receive a balm to minimize irritation from the retractor holding them out of the way, and Dr. Samadian applies the gel to your teeth. The light is positioned for 15 minutes, and the process is repeated two more times. Any remaining gel is removed and your mouth is rinsed. Some patients experience some sensitivity but it’s easily controlled with Advil or Tylenol and resolves quickly.

You’re encouraged to avoid teeth-staining foods and drinks for 5 days to allow your whitened shade to set. If the idea of not drinking coffee or dark caffeinated beverages for a week is daunting, Dr. Samadian recommends a straw and a thorough rinse to remove any residue. A take-home gel provided by Dr. Samadian will help preserve your new whiter teeth for longer, up to a year.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

As with any aesthetic procedure, the cost can vary with geographical location and experience of your provider. Dr. Samadian believes good dental care should be accessible to everyone, and prices all treatments as competitively as possible. He’s also founded a dynamic healthcare membership model, Dion Health, so patients have unrestricted access to premier medical services for quality, continuous care.

No matter your situation, Dr. Samadian makes your comfort, safety, and satisfaction—including the financial aspects—a top priority. In the US, Zoom teeth whitening can be priced as low as $400 and as high as $1,000, with an average price of $625. Some of the prices is contingent upon the amount of staining your teeth display, which impacts the method and amount of gel application. This includes the in-office treatment as well as the supplies and gel you take home for the continued preservation of your results.

If you find yourself more worried about showing your teeth than letting your smiles shine bright, Zoom teeth whitening could be the answer you’ve been hoping for.
