Teeth Whitening � The Cost And The Procedures

One of the main types of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. If you are concerned about your appearance, you have undoubtedly thought about teeth whitening at one point or another. Most of us in recent years have bought over the counter whitening toothpaste. There are also kits available that you may have seen (or tried) such as whitening strips, whitening trays, and so on.

So why are these over the counter products not working? What is the secret that dentists know that consumers don�t? The secret is that the chemicals and/or equipment needed for perfect whitening, especially at the strength needed, are not cheap. In order to truly make your teeth as white as they can be, only professional equipment and products will work best.

You may have been afraid to get your teeth professionally whitened because of fear of the cost or the procedure itself. Neither one is something to fear; let�s consider why.

The Cost

Dental cosmetic surgeries range in cost, depending on what needs to be done, and the extent of the work needed. Whitening can be affordable, however, so ask your dentist for a price quote on various whitening procedures.

You might be surprised that you could afford these procedures without financing or saving up. Keep in mind that, yes, cosmetic type surgeries are usually going to be totally out of pocket. Most insurance companies do not cover this type of dentistry. However, again, you can afford it! If you are able to afford new clothes from time to time, or finance a mortgage or a car, you can afford a beautiful smile.

Even if you put away $20 a week for a few short months, you would already be able to afford your whitening procedure. Saving money can be a difficult process for some, but it is a good alternative to financing since no interest is involved.

On the other hand, certain types of financing are interest-free. You may have financing available to you (through a credit card introductory offer, for example) at low or zero interest. Most credit card companies allow automatic payments online. So you could open up a credit line with this kind of intro offer, set up auto pay, and forget it! After the promotional period, you could just cancel the card and everything would be paid off. This is equivalent to forcing yourself to save the money, in essence.

Regardless of how you choose to pay, the procedures are within your means, so put that out of your mind. And you deserve to have a beautiful smile. Your friends, family, and coworkers will notice. It will make a difference in your sense of well-being and even the responses you get from supervisors and clients at work.

The Procedures

Whitening procedures are generally painless. There are many different types of procedures, which include in-office, professional take-home kits, and laser whitening.

Your dentist will be able to instruct you as to which one is right for you, and will tell you in advance if you will experience any sting or discomfort. If you will, such discomfort is usually very mild and worth it.

If you are very afraid of even mild discomfort, just tell your dentist and he or she will help you choose a procedure that will get you results without any reason to fear the process.

Nothing should hold you back from getting the gorgeous brilliant smile you need and deserve!
