Light Up

Every Smile


There are many things that can cause teeth to become discolored. Some of our favorite treats, including wine and berries, leave deep stains. Even factors out of your control, such as genetics and aging, can result in yellowed, dull teeth that make you want to hide them behind tightly closed lips. The good news? Modern dentistry allows Dr. Holland to do more than keep your teeth healthy. Our dental office offers two convenient and effective solutions for teeth whitening in San Antonio, TX, creating a more vibrant and confident smile.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

At home teeth whitening kit

Take-home whitening produces dazzling results using a set of special trays and a professional-strength whitening agent. When you choose this solution, our team will design personalized trays similar to mouthguards football players wear, but thinner. Your trays will hold professional grade whitening gel against your teeth. Because you can keep your trays after your treatment is complete, you can also receive more whitening gel from us at a minimal cost. This means it’s possible to enjoy the benefits of teeth whitening for life.

The advantages of home whitening include affordability, customization, and reduced potential for sensitivity. When used as directed, you may notice results after just one treatment, though optimal results are achieved in closer to two weeks’ time.

Understanding the Cost of Teeth Whitening

Are you ready to light up the room with every smile thanks to professional teeth whitening? As a cosmetic service, teeth whitening typically doesn’t receive any insurance coverage. Fortunately, it remains as one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to dramatically improve your smile! If you’re interested in the cost of teeth whitening in San Antonio, the best thing you can do is come to see us for a consultation and custom estimate. In the meantime, keep reading to learn some important information about the price of teeth whitening.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Teeth Whitening

No two smiles are exactly alike, so we always use a custom dose of whitener for our in-office and take-home whitening treatments. The more significant the discoloration, the stronger or longer a treatment may need to be, which would naturally cause the price to go up. When you see us for a consultation, we’ll take these three factors into account to create your custom estimate:

  • The severity of your tooth discoloration
  • Intrinsic vs extrinsic staining (how deep the stain is)
  • If you need any preliminary treatments, such as a filling or gum disease treatment

Types of Teeth Whitening: What Do They Cost? 

When it comes to choosing a whitening treatment, you’ll find you have plenty to pick from both in our office and in stores or online. None of these services and products cost the same, nor do they all work as well.

Generally speaking, you can expect over-the-counter whiteners that you can buy at your local grocery store, pharmacy, or online retailer to be cheaper than one of our professional treatments. Whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, trays, strips, and gels can cost less than $20. However, this is often because of the quality of the whitening ingredients. Store-bought whitening products can only use diluted ingredients that are one-size-fits all, which often leaves people with lackluster results at best and sensitive teeth and gums at worst.

Alternatively, our professional-grade whiteners provide reliably dazzling results every time with little to no sensitivity. In-office whitening treatments and personalized take-home whitening kits will often cost a few hundred dollars, with take-home kits being slightly less expensive in many cases. However, in order to achieve the same beautiful results with over-the-counter whiteners, you could easily need to pay more than the cost of a professional treatment.

Options For Making Teeth Whitening Affordable

Teeth whitening is one of the most affordable cosmetic dental treatments available, but the savings don’t stop there! We offer FREE at-home whitening with new patient exams and X-rays as well as other limited-time promotions. Additionally, we’ve partnered with CareCredit financing to help make your brighter smile fit into your budget. CareCredit has a variety of flexible plans for qualifying patients to choose from. This will break up the cost of your teeth whitening into smaller monthly payments, often with little or no interest! Give us a call today or visit us online to learn more.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Now that you know more about teeth whitening in San Antonio, you might be ready to begin treatment. Of course, it’s completely normal to still have a few questions about the process. At New Image Dentistry, we want you to be well-informed before you decide to move forward. That’s why we’ve answered a few of the most common questions we receive from patients about teeth whitening. If you prefer to speak directly with a member of our team or would like to schedule a consultation, give us a call!

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Many patients are hesitant to commit to treatment because they’re worried it will hurt. Although this is a valid concern, teeth whitening is entirely customized to each patient’s unique dental needs, meaning you’re significantly less likely to experience tooth sensitivity. However, you must let us know if your teeth are prone to sensitivity so we can advise you on the best course of action to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. That could include using a specialty toothpaste, avoiding hot beverages, or spacing out your whitening appointments. 

How Can I Make My Whitening Results Last?

Your stunning, bright smile can last anywhere from a few months to a few years. Of course, it depends entirely on how well you care for your new pearly whites. Here are some ways you can ensure your results last as long as possible:

  • Practice good oral hygiene (brush twice a day, floss daily, use mouthwash regularly)
  • Visit your dentist for a checkup and cleaning every six months
  • Limit your intake of dark-colored foods and beverages (red wine, coffee, soda)
  • Quit poor dental habits (smoking, chewing on ice, using your teeth as tools)

Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Do you have stained or discolored teeth? If so, you’re likely a candidate for teeth whitening. Of course, the only way to find out for certain is by scheduling a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in San Antonio. They will conduct a thorough oral examination and ask about your smile goals. If your oral health is in good standing, they can start developing your plan. However, if there is an existing problem like gum disease, you’ll need the appropriate treatment first.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

There is no room for error when it comes to your smile which is why it’s crucial to only use products specifically designed for your teeth and gums. Products that haven’t been approved by the FDA and ADA haven’t undergone rigorous testing, meaning they could cause damage to your pearly whites. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening treatments are considered extremely safe. Not only are they administered by a licensed professional, but the custom-made trays ensure the solution doesn’t spread to your gums or accidentally get ingested.
