Teeth whitening (chair-side)

Q: How much would a teeth whitening in Singapore cost?
A: It would cost around SGD$1200 - SGD$1500

Q: How many sittings is it going to be?
A: One sitting of 60 - 75 minutes.

Q: Is laser bleaching better than home bleaching?
A: Results for laser bleaching are immediate, whereas home bleaching, which is just as effective, requires more time to achieve the desired results. Most of the time, it is the patient that finds it difficult to follow through with the teeth-whitening home kit.

Q: How long does the whitening last?

However, how long the whitening can last is also dependent on individual’s habits such as the use of tobacco products, and the intake of caffeine and wine.

A: Whitening treatment is not recommended for pregnant women and children

Q: What are the side effects of tooth whitening?

  • Hi,

    I was wondering where I could get help with home bleaching? Is it available in all hospitals/centres AND dental clinics?

    and also,

    if I would like to put on braces + get my teeth whitened, which one should I go first?
