So what is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a process of bleaching that works on the dentin and enamel to lighten discolouration. Dentists use substances, such as carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide, to create an oxidation reaction.

Teeth whitening is an effective way to improve your smile and overall confidence, but just how much does teeth whitening cost? Well, that depends on where you go, the kind of treatment you choose, and the number of sessions you need to get your teeth to your desired shade of white.

Let’s have a look at what you can expect to pay for teeth whitening treatments, and the kind of whitening this affords you.

Teeth whitening at the dentist

If you speak to your local dentist, they’re likely to recommend a teeth whitening solution at their own practice. Now there’s nothing wrong with this. 

The setback with this option is the cost. 

While the whitening process may be quick, it is far more costly compared to take-home teeth whitening options. Professional in-chair whitening can cost up to $260 per tooth!

Teeth whitening at home

Teeth whitening kits typically contain one of two bleaching agents, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The ADA evaluates these two ingredients closely, so be sure to always look for the ADA’s seal of approval when purchasing these teeth whitening kits.

The ADA strictly recommends that whitening gels do not contain more than 6% hydrogen peroxide or 18% carbamide peroxide. We’re happy to say that Pearlii’s Teeth Whitening Kits follow ADA safety guidelines (many of our competitors do not).

Is teeth whitening worth the cost?

Your teeth are forever, and your confidence should be too. 

If you’re looking for a take-home teeth whitening kit, odds are you’re just looking for the best option. While Pearlii’s kits are at the higher-end ($89), you get what you pay for. 

Our kits are safe and gentle to use, vegan and cruelty-free. And best of all, Pearlii is giving back 50% of its profits to provide free dental surgery for people who can’t afford or access a dentist.
