Dental Veneers vs. Teeth Whitening Treatments

Do you know the difference between dental veneers and dental teeth whitening treatments? Basically, dental veneers cover or fit over damaged or injured teeth and cap existing teeth to fill in gaps, smooth surfaces, protect tooth enamel worn down by age, and straight uneven tooth alignment, cracks, and chipped teeth. Dental veneers are placed on the surface of the teeth, adjusting fit for optimal function and appearance.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening procedures promote white teeth and bright smiles. If you have yellow teeth from drinking too much coffee, tea, or smoking, teeth whitening procedures performed through certified dental providers provide beneficial, and optimal, results.  Tooth whitening procedures are available in over-the-counter products and those provided in the dentist’s office. The most common techniques include laser tooth whitening, over-the-counter whitening toothpastes, whitening gels, strips, and others that employ tray-based tooth whitening techniques.

Teeth Whitening vs Dental Veneers

Laser-based tooth whitening is available in most dental offices and provides the best, and most immediate, results. This technique combines processes of bleaching gels and laser light therapy to enhance the appearance and color of teeth that is monitored by cosmetic dentists.

Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers in the United States cost between $1,000 and $2,500 per tooth, although such veneers may last over a decade.  Composite veneers may cost between $250 and $1,500 per tooth, and generally last up to seven years. Teeth whitening procedures cost an average of $100 and $800 for treatments achieved in a dental office.  For individuals wishing to use at-home bleaching trays, custom fit trays provided by a dentist may cost anywhere between $300 and $2,000. Facilities such as Dental Solutions in Bangalore, India and Sani Dental Group in Los Algodones, Mexico, are just two excellent destinations for your dental health, wellness and smiles.
