See what type of stains that your teeth hav, if they r extrinsic , can be cleared by routine teeth cleaning, if they r intrinsic that cn be done by bleaching, or laminates, venners.. ask your dentist for cost, pain usually does not happens in any of the above mentioned procedure. Adverse affects are more with bleaching like sensitivity, depreciation in whitening.
Other procedures are permanent solutions . And are more cosmetic but costlier as well..

Regards

Hi...Tooth whitening procedures(Bleaching)is the commonest and simplest procedures in the world of cosmetic dentistry...so it's painless while performing..but there are high chances of sensitivity after that...preferably you should go for thorough oral prophylaxis i.e scaling and polishing with microabrasion if required...most of the external stains will be cleared off...then see the results and amount of sensitivity...if results are ok then u need not go for the bleaching procedures or of too much of sensitivity for scaling itself then bleaching will be the worse scenario...On a lighter note tooth whitening procedures will never make your tooth sparkle like diamonds...few shades difference definitely will be visible depending on type of bleaching procedures (home bleach/In office bleach)...thank u...keep smiling

Hii.. please get Scaling and polishing done to begin with.Then if you need whitening , you have Office Bleach which is done by your dentist with or without Laser.
Other option is Home bleach wherein your dentist explains you how to do it, so that you can do it at home.

All Bleaching procedures are associated with transient sensitivity, dentist would use desensitising agents or prescribe paste to control sensitivity.

Price varies for the type of Bleaching you choose.Cosmetic procedures are usually pricy.
Note that whiteness  doesn't last long, you may have to top up bleach once a year.
