Prices are for a 35-year-old female New Yorker who straightens and whitens her teeth and has some work done on her lips. Prices are based on quotes from a New York dentist and dermatologist. Not covered are dental veneers, which can serve as alternatives to the combination of orthodontics and whitening. Prices are rounded to the nearest dollar.

Note: Information provided here is not medical advice and should not be construed as such. Dentists say teeth-whitening treatments are not recommended for use by pregnant or lactating women because no studies have been done on the effects of use for this group. Whiteners work on natural teeth, not on caps, crowns, veneers, dentures or white fillings
