How much does teeth whitening cost?

Costs of treatment vary from one clinic to another. They are based upon a number of factors which include the extent of the treatment required, the dentist’s fees, the materials used and the aftercare service.

As you can imagine, the more prestigious the clinic the more expensive the treatment will be. If a clinic is using the most up to date techniques with a high profile dentist then this will be reflected in the cost.

Costs also depend on whether you have in-house treatment or opt for a home whitening kit. In-surgery treatment such as laser whitening is quicker and so more expensive than a home whitening kit. The cost depends on the type of treatment you have.

As a rough guide, teeth whitening in general can cost from £300 up to £1,000 or more. Prices for individual procedures are as follows:

Laser teeth whitening: from £700 to £1,300

BriteSmile whitening: from £500 to £700

Gel-Tray whitening: from £300 to £700

Enlighten deep bleaching: from £500

Zoom teeth whitening: from £200

Teeth whitening is not available on the NHS who see it along with cosmetic dentistry in general as a ‘lifestyle’ choice. By this they mean it is something you choose to have done rather than a medical necessity.

If you are looking for financial help then consider dental finance. Many clinics operate their own finance scheme whereby you take out a loan to pay for your treatment and then repay it on a monthly basis. Check with your dentist about this.
