Despite an influx of over-the-counter toothpastes and gels marketed to deliver dramatic results, the most effective way to brighten your smile is by visiting the dentist for laser teeth whitening.  

Whether you have a special occasion coming up or just fed up with that yellowing smile, it's possible to receive the same standard of care while saving hundreds of dollars in Los Algodones, Mexico's famous dental tourism border town

Why Get Teeth Whitening in Los Algodones?

Los Algodones is the self-styled world capital of dentistry, boasting over 300 clinics and 900 dentists across just a few square blocks. It is also within walking distance of the border crossing and around seven miles away from Yuma, where an international airport connects the region with the rest of North America.

It is a particularly convenient destination if you can drive and reside in Arizona or California. Visitors can park their car on the US side and walk over to their dental appointment - then back again on the same day. 

The town itself does offer a modest choice of souvenir stalls, cantinas and hotels, as well as opticians and drug stores selling low-cost eyewear and pharmaceuticals.

What Is the Process for Laser Teeth Whitening?

The procedure only takes a couple of hours, but there are different systems available; thus, the actual process may vary slightly, depending on what system is being used. There is no need to be concerned that one system is inferior to another as all offer comparable results.

The dentist will first make sure you are suitable for the procedure. If you suffer from sensitive teeth or gum disease then the treatment could aggravate those conditions so you may be advised not to have the treatment.


  • The dentist will use a shade chart to ascertain the exact shade of your teeth before the treatment.
  • Next, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned before a rubber dam is placed around them to shield your tongue, gums and other soft tissues in your mouth from the bleaching gel.
  • Protective glasses will be placed over your eyes to protect them from the bright light of the laser beam.
  • The gel is applied to the teeth and left for a specific amount of time: For Zoom!®, the gel is left on the teeth for 15 minutes before the laser is applied. The gel is then removed and the process repeated again 3 times more; for BriteSmile®, the gel is applied just once and left on the teeth for an hour before the laser is applied.
  • Once the final laser treatment has finished, the dentist removes the dam and cleans your teeth again, removing all traces of the gel.
  • Using the shade chart again the dentist will show you how many shades lighter your teeth have become (which could be up to 14 shades).

The Bottom Line

The low tooth whitening cost Algodones dentists offer is worth the trip over the border if you live in Southern California, Arizona, or planning a money-saving dental trip to Mexico anyway.
