What is tooth whitening and how much does it cost?
We all like to have radiant teeth and a perfect smile. Having white teeth is a fundamental part of oral aesthetics. That is why one of the most common treatments in a dental clinic is teeth whitening.
It is obvious that taking care of our oral health and seeing a dentist regularly helps to avoid suffering from any oral problems. However, with the passage of time, due to certain foods and drinks such as coffee or carbonated beverages, tobacco or a lack of perfect hygiene, it can happen that our teeth turn yellow, greyish or simply lose their immaculate white.
In this article we will look at what teeth whitening is, what types exist and how much it can cost. We will answer the most common questions about this popular treatment.
What is tooth whitening?
Tooth whitening is a dental treatment that aims to improve dental aesthetics, achieving a whiter and more uniform shade in all teeth.
This treatment manages to eliminate any type of stain on the outside of the teeth or their discolouration. This can occur for a variety of reasons, as mentioned in the introduction.
Whitening agents are used for whitening and are usually in the form of a gel that is applied to the teeth during different sessions and in different ways. It should be noted that these can cause sensitivity to cold during the treatment, although this will disappear once the treatment is over.
The advantage of tooth whitening is that the teeth are not filed, so they are not weakened. It is the best option for young patients or those who have teeth in good condition and only want to change the colour.
What types of whitening are there?
There are basically two different methods for whitening teeth. One is done over several sessions in a dental clinic and the other is done by the patient at home using products provided by the clinic. Let’s take a closer look at these methods of teeth whitening:
- In-clinic whitening: this is a whitening treatment carried out in a dental clinic, such as the Baldrich Dental Clinic. It is carried out in several sessions of approximately 20 minutes and is done using a cold light lamp.
- Home whitening: in this case, the patient is given splints, after taking the correct measurements, and whitening products. The product is applied daily to each gap in the splint and is worn for 30 minutes. The procedure lasts approximately 15 days and can sometimes be repeated months later to achieve a more radiant white or to maintain the colour already achieved.
How much does tooth whitening in Viladecans cost?
There is no specific answer to this question. As we have seen, there are different treatments, each with a different price. In addition, each patient is different, will have more or less yellowish or greyish teeth and, therefore, will need more or less sessions or products to achieve the required colour for a perfect smile.
If you want to have a whitening or have any doubts about this treatment, you can ask for a first appointment with no obligation to study your case and find out how much it might cost, which method is more recommendable and how long it will last.
