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 and at-home teeth whitening procedures.
Dedicated to improving smiles at any stage of life, this specialist dental practice offers orthodontics for both children and adults, using the latest technologies. For brighter, whiter teeth, Orange Orthodontics uses Zoom Whitespeed, an LED light technology that’s been clinically proven to lighten teeth with an average of eight shades whiter in just one visit. Patients can also opt for Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite take-home kits, which offer the convenience of whitening your teeth in the comfort of your own home.
This Tanglin-based dental clinic also uses Zoom for in-office whitening. Or, if you prefer, you can opt for the take-home whitening kit, 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, in order to remove the surface stains 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.
Dr Catherine Lee Orthodontics
This penthouse clinic in the financial district has an ocean theme running throughout. Teeth whitening is typically done after patients have completed their orthodontic treatment such as braces or Invisalign. Head dentist Dr Catherine Lee recommends the professional home whitening kit (custom-made trays) with professional supervision, as it’s milder and suitable for those who travel often.
