Oh I know the answer to this. (raising hand) Pick me. Pick me. lol
I just paid $2800 on dental bills for my daughter. Her front teeth were a little crooked, and I couldn't afford braces for her when she was younger. Anyway, to make a long story short, I wanted her teeth whitened as well. The receptionist said that the dentist was not the one who did the bleaching, the dental hygienist did and we had to make another appointment for that. I asked how much it would cost, she said if I wanted it done same day, it would cost $600. If done in two visits, $400. I said forget it.. that's too much money.
You know what she said? Actually she whispered... The whitening strips you buy at drugstore work as well. Crest Whitening strips has great reviews and it works. One box of strips is about $40, good for two weeks. My daughter's teeth were two shades whiter after two weeks. Amazing!
