The Best LA Teeth Whitening Locations

If your best friends are coffee, red wine, and chocolate, your pearly whites might not be so pearly white anymore! No worries, though. You won’t have to part with your beloved coffee in order to get that bright white smile back! All it takes is a quick trip to a dentist to get your teeth whitened again.

Cost of Teeth Whitening in LA:

You may have invested in some drugstore whitening strips, only to find that your teeth are still not as bright as you’d like them to be. In this case, you may want to have your teeth professionally whitened. In Los Angeles, you can find a variety of options for teeth whitening. If you book an appointment with a cosmetic dentist, you could be looking at an in-office visit that costs upwards of $500. Teeth-whitening boutiques, run by technicians rather than dentists, offer cheaper options (some under $100) without sacrificing the results.

CARTE BLANCHE TEETH WHITENING – Los Angeles, Orange County, The Valleys

If you’re looking for… CONVENIENCE

$225 – per person

Lana, the owner of Carte Blanche, gets nothing but positive reviews from her customers. Who would complain, though, when you can watch Netflix and hang out with your besties while getting your teeth whitened? Lana will come to your house, work, or wherever you like. You can book a solo one-hour appointment, or you can have your significant other, best friend, or a whole group of friends book a whitening party together.

Carte Blanche uses a paint-on method, unlike conventional trays, which is a great option for people with sensitive gums and teeth. When traditional trays are used, the bleaching material can irritate the gums and cause extra sensitivity. The paint-on method involves a bleaching pen and cheek retractors, which reduce the likelihood of walking away with painful gums.

Wow!!!! Carte Blanche Teeth Whitening is the pinnacle of service, professionalism and results. I’m in awe of my new white teeth! My dentist couldn’t even get my teeth this white with the added bonus of the comfort and convenience of a house a call. I will definitely utilize this company to infinity and beyond. Last but not least, the price point is a deal. –F.Z. (Yelp)
