Q – How much does teeth whitening cost?
To get really good results with teeth whitening, you’ll need either a home whitening kit that really works or you’ll have to get your teeth professionally whitened, so we’re only going to give you the retail cost for high quality products and services. A good home whitening kit will usually have an MSRP of over $100. Laser teeth whitening by a non-dental professional will typically cost from $100-$300 and to have your teeth whitened at the dentist usually costs from $250 to $600 or more, depending on how much is included in the package. If you are a smart shopper, you can find special offers and deals to help lower the cost.
Q – Does teeth whitening work?
Yes, teeth whitening does work on natural teeth that have experienced some surface and/or subsurface stains from eating, drinking or smoking things that leave stains on or in the tooth enamel. Most of our customers have been very pleased with their results from our home whitening products as well as our products for professional use.
Q – How long does teeth whitening last?
Average results for peroxide-based whitening gels last 6 months to 1 year and this also depends entirely upon your own tooth enamel and on your habits.
Q- Does it hurt?
Most people experience absolutely no sensitivity with Whiter Smiles RVA products. Only 5% of the thousands of people that used our Advanced Whitening kit (with 16% carbamide peroxide gel) have reported any tooth sensitivity or gum irritation.
Less than 1% of our customers reported experiencing an allergic type of reaction to our peroxide-based whitening gel. An allergic reaction can be painful and even cause blisters. This risk is included in the warnings on all our of products with peroxide-based gels. If this happens to you, discontinue use immediately and, if desired, see your dentist or physician about methods to help the skin heal faster. We recommend applying pure vitamin e oil to the irritated parts of the mouth.
People with gum disease might experience irritation because their gum tissues are not healthy. Only use whitening products if your gums don’t bleed when you floss.
People with tiny cracks in their tooth enamel, any stage of dental carries, or very thin or porous enamel might experience tooth sensitivity from peroxide-based whitening gels. If this happens to you, discontinue use and see your dentist if desired.
Q- How many shades whiter?
This depends entirely on the person. It is a natural whitening that will get you to your natural tooth color. Average results are 4-8 shades.
Q- How long does it take?
The Whiter Smiles RVA System is one to three applications of 15-20 minutes each, so it’s an hour to a Beaming Whiter Smile! Our home whitening kits deliver professional results at home, but it just takes longer. You will need to use the kit once or twice a day, without skipping, for up to 10 days. You leave the gel on the teeth for at least 30 minutes with each application. The longer you go, the better the results! Be sure to finish any whitening treatment with an application of Minerals Enamel Booster to seal in results and strengthen tooth enamel.
