If you are really going for a smile makeover for your teeth consulting a proper cosmetic dentist and proper planning will help you optimize your cost and efforts. Keeping the cost realistic and affordable depends on proper guidance from your dentist and the time you spend researching on teeth whitening products and techniques.

Tooth whitening costs largely depends on the manufacturer of the whitening product and the types of treatment. Laser whitening treatment can be quite expensive. It ranges from $500 to $1000. This again varies from location to location depending on the ingredients used and the brand you adopt.
The standard fees of teeth bleaching or teeth whitening techniques are dependent on which process or products are needed. Whitening of one tooth may only cost $50-$100 in many parts of USA, whereas the laser treatment for your entire teeth will be much more costly.
Usually the price of teeth whitening increases with the frequency of in office treatments required by the patient. Generally dental insurance does not cover the cost of the tooth whitening.

At home trays kits are less expensive choices that range from $100-$1000. OTC whitening strips, toothpastes and brush hardly costs $20-$100. Refills of less expensive and the costly ones are available for $20-$100.

In some cases teeth veneers or bonding could be more effective than other teeth whitening methods. If you are going for porcelain veneers you would be paying $1000 - $2800 per tooth, compared to composite veneers that cost only $250 per tooth or more.

This also requires frequent clinic visits in alternative weeks according to the specific dental conditions. However, porcelain veneers are more effective than plastic and the effect lasts for 10-15 years or more depending upon the precautions you take up after the process is complete. Composite veneers can last for 5-7 years.

Lumineer Porcelain Veneers involves a cost of $500 - $1000 per tooth. This also has a long lasting effect for 10 years or more and requires just two visits to your cosmetic dentist.

You should be sure to avoid abusing whitening agents that can be unfavorable to your teeth and gums. While the cost is an essential issue of concern, it is also necessary that you adopt the right technique and the right product that is suitable for your dental condition is also equally important.
