Teeth Whitening costs in the UK can range from £20 to £1,000, but what do we recommend?

This article covers every type of teeth whitening solution, including our recommended Boutique Whitening Treatment which costs only £375 with our 25% discount and Full Money Back Guarantee!* Other treatment option costs covered include:

  • Laser Teeth Whitening
  • LED Whitening
  • Professional Bleaching (Boutique Whitening)
  • Online order (at home) treatment

Improving your smile can be achieved through various methods, but teeth whitening stands out as one of the best and most effective options. In the UK, there are numerous whitening solutions available to help brighten and enhance your smile, especially if you have discoloured or stained teeth. If you have concerns about the colour or health of your teeth, you have likely considered teeth whitening. However, the cost of this treatment in the UK varies significantly due to various factors. Nevertheless, can one really put a price on the satisfaction of having a brighter smile?

In this article, we will explore everything you need to know about teeth whitening in the UK, including the cost of professional teeth whitening and the most effective methods available.

Laser Teeth Whitening

Laser Teeth Whitening Procedure
Laser Teeth Whitening

Laser teeth whitening is the fastest way to achieve a whiter smile, but it is also the most expensive - part of the reason why we don't recommend this at Edgbaston Smile. It can also cause serious sensitivity issues due to the intensity of the treatment which uses a strong hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel, accelerated by a laser.

How much does Laser Teeth Whitening Cost?

Laser Teeth Whitening will usually cost upwards of £750 but can be even more depending on the number of sessions you require and the location of your dentist. Maintenance costs can also be high compared to professional bleaching where trays are reusable and bleaching gel is relatively cheap.

LED Teeth Whitening

LED teeth whitening has the advantage of being able to be used at home, but it is much more gradual than laser teeth whitening, and can cause increased sensitivity and teeth damage over extended use.

How much does LED Teeth Whitening Cost?

LED Teeth Whitening costs can be slightly cheaper than Laser Teeth Whitening, but arguably offers reduced value due to its reduced effectiveness and increased adverse side effects.

Professional Bleaching (Boutique Whitening)

*Our Recommendation*

Teeth Whitening Gel Package (Boutique Whitening)

Professional bleaching/teeth whitening offers many advantages to other options including its price. Custom made trays ensure a comfortable experience and limited sensitivity issues when compared to laser teeth whitening. You can also wear your bleaching trays while you sleep or do other things, making them much more convenient than an in-clinic procedure for most people. Bleaching typically costs almost half as much as laser teeth whitening, and maintenance costs are extremely low.

How much does Professional Bleaching Cost?

Professional bleaching (Boutique Whitening) costs £375 with our 25% discount at Edgbaston Smile. This includes all the bleaching gel you will need as well as custom made trays and professional advice from our dental team.

Online Order/At Home Treatment

Online/At Home teeth whitening treatment can be an enticing offer with prices starting from next to nothing. Unfortunately, if these prices seem too good to be true it's because they are. Online teeth whitening treatments can be risky, ineffective, and you won't have a professional to help/advise on your whitening options.

How much does Online/At Home Teeth Whitening Cost?

Typically, good quality online/at home teeth whitening costs from £150, but results are not usually guaranteed.

Can you get teeth whitening on the NHS?

The NHS does not cover cosmetic procedures, including teeth whitening. Only patients with medical needs for whitening are eligible for NHS teeth whitening, and such cases are limited. To determine your eligibility, it is recommended to consult with your dentist. If you do qualify, the treatment fee will most likely fall under Band 3. You can find information on NHS dental fees on the NHS website. Edgbaston Smile is not an NHS dental clinic and all procedures must be self-funded.

Is teeth whitening suitable for me?

Most patients will be suitable for teeth whitening treatments, but in some cases other treatment may be recommended:

  • You will need to be above the age of 18 to have any cosmetic procedures
  • Your gums and teeth will need to be healthy
  • We recommend delaying your procedure if you are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • If you have crowns, veneers or bridges these will not be affected by teeth whitening so you may need additional treatment

Your teeth whitening consultation will include a full examination and determine your suitability for whitening treatment. Click here to book your teeth whitening appointment.

How Long Does Composite Bonding Last?

Composite bonding lasts for around 5 years on average. The material lacks the hardness of natural teeth, meaning it is more susceptible to wearing down, chipping, breaking or staining. These factors all contribute to its limited lifespan. However, composite bonding can last much longer if you make proactive efforts to protect it. Unhealthy eating and lifestyle choices can cause your dental bonding to wear down faster, requiring frequent repairs and touch-ups.
