After you get braces, will the orthodontist whiten your teeth for free?

All you have to do is ask ; see if they routinely bleach teeth. Often orthodontists are not familiar with teeth whitening techniques as that is usually a dental treatment performed by general dentists. Occasionally, dentists who perform invisalign orthodontic treatment may offer free tubes of teeth whitening gel that can be placed inside the invisalign aligners.

That's like asking if the ear/nose?Throat specialist will do dermabrasion. Qualified orthodontic specialists limit their practice to only performing the highest quality orthodontic treatment. After your braces come off your general dentist may be called upon to do esthetic (whitening, reshaping) treatment for you to give you the best smile. For best results it's a team effort.

After you get a car wash do they polish it for free? Go back to your dentist. Get a cleaning and then bleaching afterward.

the costs are extremely (or should be) minimal. For patients where we think whitening is OK, we'll charge only $25 for the paste (their retainer serves as the tray). But everyone prices differently
