Teeth Whitening Abroad​


Teeth Whitening Abroad



What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a dental treatment recommended to those with severely stained or discolored teeth or just for cosmetic reasons, such as enhancing the appearance of someone’s natural smile. Patients can ask to have their natural shade of teeth restored or further whiten them, sometimes up to 8 shades. 

To get their teeth whiten, one might need:

  • your natural tooth
  • an overall healthy oral cavity

The global tooth whitening market value amounted to about 2.37 billion British pounds in 2016, and is forecasted to grow to 2.85 billion British pounds by 2021.

People will always opt for a teeth whitening procedure as a means to display the ultimate smile, mostly because this isn’t an expensive treatment. Dental tourists usually choose to whiten their teeth while getting something else done abroad.

Dental tourism facts and numbers

Not sure whether to travel abroad and benefit from dental treatment yet?

Did you know that…

• teeth whitening in Western Europe is priced significantly higher than the ones in the Eastern and Southern Europe?

• Eastern Europe offers tooth higher-quality whitening treatments at lower prices?


Cost of teeth whitening abroad

Often times, people postpone a teeth whitening in lack of more affordable financial options. Due to the high dental treatment costs available in Western Europe, cosmetic dental procedures can easily take second place when it comes to priorities.

Eastern European countries, however, are very promising, timely, and extremely affordable when it comes to teeth whitening prices. Romania is one of them. It’s a place where the quality of dental care is exceptional and patient satisfaction is always guaranteed.

While teeth whitening prices range between £310-580 in the UK, quotes from dental clinics in Romania offer considerable lower tooth whitening rates: £120-230.

When are teeth whitening abroad most often indicated?

Teeth whitening mainly addresses people with one or more of the following issues: discolored, severely stained, yellow, or unaesthetic teeth caused by smoking, tartar, poor dental hygiene, unhealthy diet, lifestyle, genetics, antibiotics, certain drinks (coffee, red wine, tea), and aging (this is the biggest factor).

What are the advantages of teeth whitening abroad?

  • increase self-confidence
  • helps kill bacteria that may cause gum disease and/or tooth decay
  • reduce the risk of serious health problems
  • affordable option for any budget

What are the disadvantages of teeth whitening abroad?

  • the effect of bleaching on natural tooth is not permanent compared to crowns and veneers
  • many times, it requires two or three sessions more compared to instant veneering
  • it is not effective for all forms of discolorations, such as banding seen in severe tetracycline staining


Teeth whitening abroad time requirements

The quickest and easiest way to whiten your teeth is in-practice or in-chair whitening (30-90 minutes) as opposed to home whitening kits (2-4 weeks). You can whiten teeth up to 8 shades within just one visit to the dentist’s. It really depends on the treatment procedure you opt for.

Depending on the type of treatment, a mould may need to be taken at the first appointment. For other and most types of whitening treatments, this is unnecessary. Getting your teeth whitened requires only 1 visit/day and 30-90 minutes.

A normal tooth whitening visit to the dentist would go like this: first, decide on which color suits you best (with a dental shade guide); secondly, apply an isolating gel to prevent gum irritation or damage; thirdly, put the bleaching agent on your teeth (gel/paste), then use a laser meant to whiten your teeth, or just wait for the whitening agent to work its magic.

Risks and implications of dental whitening abroad

  • not recommended to patients with sensitive teeth or gums
  • unwanted side effects triggered by choosing the wrong treatment provider or if the treatment is applied incorrectly, too frequently, or for too long – usually happening when opting for (usually illegal) cheap teeth whitening
  • unsuitable to pregnant women
  • unsuitable to patients with teeth/gums with issues
  • patients with fillings/crowns/veneers on the front teeth can’t benefit from tooth whitening as these don’t change color
  • the teeth whitening life depends on the how much the patient sticks to a dedicated aftercare program
