Whitening in Bogotá

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Bogotá

Last fact-checked: 15 March 2020

Brighten your smile with teeth whitening in Bogota and improve your pearly whites. With the help of Dental Departures, you can find the best clinic to whiten your teeth and get the chance to explore this scintillating South American city at the same time.

Bogota has a wealth of cultural and tourist attractions to make for an enjoyable visit. From the historic La Candelaria to the peak of the Monserrate overlooking the city, the Colombian capital is blessed with a wide variety of sites to entertain visitors.

Times have changed very much for the better in Colombia over the last couple of decades. The stronghold of the drug cartels and associated violence that marred the country have largely disappeared, and cities like Bogota are blooming. Colombia is one of the Travel Industry’s hot spots of the last few years—so get in and see it now before everybody else does!

Why Bogota?

Most of us are happy to save a little money—and an increasingly easy way of doing so is by combining dental care with a vacation. Dental treatments for Americans and Canadians are becoming hideously expensive, and cosmetic work, like teeth whitening, isn’t covered under most insurance plans anyway. The treatment is a quick, simple and highly effective way of transforming a smile.

When you visit one of the world’s up-and-coming dental tourism hubs, like Colombia, it’s made all the more affordable.

The dental clinics in Bogota offer laser teeth whitening treatments, as well as take-home treatments. Both procedures lighten the teeth and remove stains and discoloration. However, the most effective and safest treatment is through in-office or laser teeth whitening, which is performed at the dental clinic. Take-home kits can be used on their own, and some people who have undergone laser teeth whitening use these kits as a top-up, to keep their teeth looking whiter for longer.

Am I Suitable for Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is not suitable for everyone. Children below the age of 16 years old, pregnant, lactating women, people with sensitive teeth, gum disease and allergies. Make sure you know the facts about teeth whitening to check your own suitability. Any underlying dental health issues could lead to increased sensitivity and possible damage to gums and teeth. Speak to a dentist if you want to know if it’s a good option for you.

And as for the big question as to whether it really works, in most cases this is a definite “yes” – the differences can be night and day. However, there is a caveat. If you have teeth that have been stained by antibiotics, teeth whitening products will have no effect because the stain is on the inside of the teeth, not the outside.

What’s the Procedure for Teeth Whitening in Bogota?

Laser teeth whitening takes a couple of hours in the dentist’s office. The procedure starts with a thorough teeth clean by your dentist before a rubber dam is placed over the teeth to protect your gums and tongue from the bleaching gel. You will be given protective glasses to shield our eyes from the laser.

The whitening gel is applied to the teeth and activated by the laser. Some systems require three consecutive 15-minute applications of the gel, and others a single 45-minute session— it just depends on the system your dentist uses. After the final application of gel, the dentist removes all the gel and cleans your teeth again. That’s the end of the procedure and you should now be able to see a dramatic difference with your teeth appearing up to 14 shades whiter.

Take-home whitening kits will require two visits to the dentist. First, impressions are taken of your mouth and sent to the lab where trays are made to fit over your mouth. These trays are where the bleaching gel will be squeezed into each night before application.

You will return to the dentist to pick up the trays and gel. Your dentist will demonstrate how the kit is to be used, which is typically every night for a fortnight. You can always get more gel from your dentist at home if you need a top-up in the future.
