Your smile is key to making a great first impression – and whiter teeth apparently make you appear younger! Here are some dental clinics in Singapore that provide various in-clinic teeth whitening procedures and whitening teeth kits for home use.
This Raffles Place-based dental clinic offers both in-office whitening and at-home whitening, depending on your preference and timeline. While the clinic’s in-office Aesthete Spa Whitening System treatment can deliver highly effective results within just one visit, the at-home treatment can give you the same results, only over a longer period of time. The at-home method involves wearing customised whitening trays with a lower concentration of whitening gel that makes it safe for self-administration.
According to DR DAPHNE CHUA, both whitening solutions are safe and non- invasive, and very effective, when administered correctly. While slight sensitivity is common in the first 24 hours after in-office whitening, the sensitivity is usually quite bearable.
Some patients even opt for both whitening solutions. So, they get quick results with an in-office treatment, then use the whitening trays at home to maintain the same brightness over a long period of time.

Expat Dental offers “In-Chair” whitening options, as well as take-home teeth whitening kits at each of its two locations. In fact, a combination of the two usually offers the best results, says DR CLARA GIBSON.
The clinic’s One Stop Oral Health Solution package is especially great value if you’re looking to clean and brighten your smile. It includes a clean and polish, an exam and in-office x-rays, as well as in-chair whitening. If you prefer a teeth-whitening kit, Expat Dental offers a similar (and even more cost-efficient) Custom Take-home Whitening Solution package. It includes a clean and polish, a dental exam, in-office x-rays and custom moulds for take-home trays, plus a tube of whitening gel.
Before any brightening takes place, your dentist will discuss your concerns with you and help determine if there are lifestyle or dental factors causing your teeth to stain or darken, says Dr Gibson. They’ll do a thorough examination, assess your gum health and check for recession or other factors that could cause sensitivity when whitening.
For in-office teeth whitening, this Orchard-based clinic uses Zoom (the brand of dental technology, not the video-conferencing service!). Or, if you prefer, you can opt for the whitening teeth kits to take home, which includes custom-made trays and whitening gel. With the kit, you’ll be able to freshen your pearly whites whenever it suits you. During the whitening procedure, you’re recommended to wear the tray for around 60 minutes, once per day for up to 14 days. During this time, surface stains are removed from your teeth’s protective layer. It takes about 24 hours for this barrier to fully develop again. During this period, you’ll need to avoid dark foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, red wine and dark sauces, in order to minimise re-staining.
