Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Teeth Whitening

How can we help you?

At Azalea Dental, we pride ourselves on educating our patients about dental care so they can be an active participant in their own oral health.

As a patient, you have a right to be informed about your treatment. We make every effort to explain a procedure in enough detail for you to understand why it's important and how it can benefit your oral health.

But you may still have questions, and we've shared a few of those we hear most frequently. We're always here for you, so if you still need more information, please don't hesitate to contact our office.

Teeth Whitening

The cost of cosmetic dentistry treatments can vary a great deal – as do people’s budgets! Dr. Riley is happy to help you by examining your teeth and discussing your dental goals and your current budget. While most procedures done purely for cosmetic reasons are not covered under insurance, certain procedures may be covered in some circumstances, so we are also happy to check your insurance coverage and help you maximize your benefits.

Is Cosmetic Dentistry in 29483 Right For Me?

What type of improvements are you looking to make? If you want to whiten and brighten your smile, then an inexpensive professional take-home whitening kit may be all you need to look your best. Many improvements that are often done with dental veneers, such as repairing chips, discolorations, or enamel imperfections, can also be done with dental bonding, which costs less and can be completed in a single day. You might be surprised by the affordability of some cosmetic dentistry procedures!

We understand the importance of having teeth that are both healthy and attractive, and our dental office offers solutions that can help you fit your dental care into your budget more easily. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express, and we also accept Care Credit, a line of credit that is available specifically for health-care needs.

At Azalea Dental whitening options are In-Office or Take-Home whitening. In-office whitening is a process in which we apply a solution to your teeth and activate it with a light. The total process takes between 45 and 60 minutes. It also includes a "touch up" kit for use at home and the total cost is $515.00. The take-home system involves us taking impressions of your teeth and making custom "trays", (think sports guard but smaller). In addition to your custom trays, you get three tubes of a whitening solution and you can purchase more at any time. This process takes about 15 minutes to take impressions and then usually 24 hours to get your trays made. The cost of this system is $300.00.
