Cheaper Teeth Whitening Options?

Dentist-administered whitening is best
There's no question that dentist administered and supervised whitening is easiest, fastest and gives the best results. If you can't afford these types of whitening then you can always use over-the-counter products like Crest Whitestrips. They're slow, difficult to use and don't give the dramatic results that dentist administered whitening can give. You get what you pay for!
Cheaper Teeth Whitening options
There are SO many options for whitening your teeth these days. There are many over-the-counter products you can buy for under $50. However these products are not as strong as the ones we (dentists) can get for you. If you choose to go with the over-the-counter products, just make sure the product has the ADA seal of approval. Your dentist can get you stronger whitening products. I offer a 10-day system of pre-made trays (called Tres Whites) for $110. I love this product -- it's simple (one hour per day) and it works great.
