You need to know what you are doing

We’ve mentioned the 80-90% profit margins and the huge appetite and growing demand in the UK with at least a £40 million spend. However, one of the key factors here when you’re thinking about tapping into this market is the need to know what you’re doing.

This is why it’s important to join Star Whitening, the fastest growing business provider to help you all the way!

We have many successful business owners who have chosen us as their top UK supplier to help them get started.

Let’s look at the figures together

Below is a chart that helps you consider your potential earnings and importantly the profitability when starting up a teeth whitening business.

Teeth Whitening Business Chart

*Please note these figures are for guidance purposes only

We can see from the chart that just providing 5 treatments per week at 1 hour each (5 hours) then you could receive an additional profit of £450 per week. Not bad, considering the number of hours worked.

Likewise, 10 customers per week = £900 profit and 20 customers per week = £1800

You will need to take into consideration travel time between appointments and associated fuel costs if you want to operate a mobile service with your clients.

In reality, depending on your schedule and how many new clients you can see each week offering teeth whitening, will have a bearing effect on how much you earn and the amount of profit that ultimately goes in your pocket!

This is where the planning comes in.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail 

Here is a list of some areas you will need to take into consideration when you maximise your profit margins. We will go through these and much more in depth when you enrol on the course, and we’ll support you with any questions you have when you’re up and running.

  • Your Diary
  • Re-ordering whitening gels
  • Sterilisation and cleanliness
  • Booking appointments
  • Confirming Appointments
  • Building your client base

As a UK leading wholesaler, we will also help you stretch your profit margins as much as possible by giving the best deals on the ongoing products you will require.

How to take payments

So far, we’ve discussed profit margins, value of the UK market, expected earnings and now we’ll cover off how to take payments.

Teeth whitening profitability

How much do you plan on earning with your teeth whitening business?

It’s quite simple really, you’ll need a mobile payments provider (we’ll give you details of the best on the market during our course) so you can accept payments on the go.

You can also opt for cash and Paypal, these payment means fit the business model quite well.

However, BACS payments and invoicing with your clients isn’t really used due to the instant payment required at the end of the treatment. You’ll want to move onto the next appointment rather than hang around waiting for payments to clear.


  • You can get started from only £1395
  • Profit margins operate around 80-90%
  • Market cap in the UK for teeth whitening is around £40 million
  • 5 customers per week = £450 take home profit (as a guide)
  • 10 customer per week = £900 take home profits (as a guide)
  • 20 customers per week = £1800 take home profits (as a guide)

You get to pay off your initial investment with 16 customers, so your return on investment can come back pretty quickly.

If you charge more and maybe you’re a dentist the you’ll need to see less patients to get back your original investment.

If you have a passion to give people a whiter smile, and you have the time to provide the treatment then most business owners will say it makes sense to start a teeth whitening business.

If you put the effort in, you will see greater results and we’re here to guide you through the process.

We may not be the cheapest out there in the UK, but our wholesale prices are extremely competitive and the teeth whitening products we sell are of the best and highest quality in every way, giving you and your customers the best value possible.
