Teeth Whitening Costs

The overall cost of teeth whitening depends on many factors, some of which include:

  • The dentist performing the procedure.
  • The locale where the procedure is performed. In general, health care procedures tend to be more expensive in metropolitan areas.
  • The brand of teeth whitening you select.
  • Your dental insurance (cosmetic dentistry is typically not covered by insurance).

On average, teeth whitening may cost approximately $450-$500 with the results lasting for several months or more, depending on how well you do maintaining your whiter smile. On the low end, whitening strips start at about $25 in the drug store. In-office whitening procedures can cost anywhere from $400 to $900, depending on the product, the provider and the location where the procedure is performed.
