Whitening in Croatia

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Croatia

Last fact-checked: 2 April 2020

If you’re going on holiday, why not rejuvenate your smile with teeth whitening in Croatia? You can find treatment at our listed clinics for less than half the price you’d pay at home—with this quick and effective procedure improving your smile and taking years off (without the need for cosmetic surgery).

It’s a well-known fact that your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. It is also remarkable how a whiter smile can actually make you look younger too. This is because your teeth may yellow as you get older.

Why Is Laser Teeth Whitening a Good Treatment for Dental Tourists?

Treatment is Virtually Painless. You may experience a little tooth sensitivity, but it’s not like having major surgery where you may have downtime after the procedure for a considerable part of your holiday.

It’s Effective. Laser teeth whitening can lighten teeth by up to 14 shades. This is a dramatic difference that will be noticed by everyone.

It’s Quick. The laser teeth whitening treatment only takes a couple of hours to carry out—meaning you’ll still have plenty of time to enjoy your holiday.

You’ll Save Money on Laser Teeth Whitening in Croatia. Laser teeth whitening prices have come down in recent years, but you can still pay less than half-price in Croatia. And wouldn’t you rather be spending your savings on yourself than handing it over to your dentist at home?

Is Laser Teeth Whitening Suitable for Everyone?

Teeth whitening procedures work on external stains caused by, for example, tea, coffee, red wine and cigarettes. If you have dental restorations, including bridges, crowns or dentures, these will be unaffected by teeth whitening procedures, as will  stains caused by antibiotics. In these cases, the only solution is dental veneers.

Another utmost consideration is your general dental health. Teeth whitening procedures may cause permanent damage if you have underlying oral health issues, such as active gum disease or tooth decay. People tend to overlook tooth whitening as a medical procedure, and all medical procedures carry some risk. It should be treated as such, and a trusted clinician’s advice should always be sought before you embark on these procedures. Overuse is also a potential problem that can damage teeth or gums.

What about Other Teeth Whitening Treatments?

You can obtain take-home whitening kits from the dentist; these are certainly stronger than over-the-counter teeth whitening products of a similar nature but don’t offer the same dramatic results as using a laser. For many people, this may be enough to whiten their smile gently.

What about the Quality of Teeth Whitening in Croatia?

Dental facilities in Croatia are generally of good quality. Dental tourism is growing year-on-year with international patients attracted by low prices, better expertise and, of course, the fact that Croatia is a wonderful country to visit for a holiday.

Clinics are contemporary and equipped with up-to-date technologies, as well as world-renowned brands. Laser teeth whitening systems used by your dentist at home, such as BriteSmile® and Zoom!® are available in Croatia, as well as other systems. The choice is purely down to your dentist’s preference as there is little variation in the actual results.

However, we always recommend that you choose your dental facility with care—and that applies to dental care both at home and abroad. Obviously, at home, you can ask for recommendations from family, friends and neighbours, which isn’t normally an option when you are going abroad.

This is where Dental Departures comes in. All the facilities listed on our site have already been screened by us, allowing you to choose your dentist with confidence, knowing dentist qualifications and professional memberships have been verified, and other information, including patient reviews, clinic photos, maps and prices, are all readily available.

What Is the Procedure for Teeth Whitening? How Long Will it Take?

Laser Teeth Whitening: Laser teeth whitening takes around two hours. The dentist cleans your teeth thoroughly to remove tartar and stains. A rubber dam is placed around the teeth to protect the soft tissues in your mouth from the bleach contained in the whitening gel. You will also be given protective glasses to protect your eyes from the bright laser beam.

The dentist covers the teeth with the bleaching gel and the laser beam is applied to activate the whitening agents. Depending on what system is used by your dentist, the gel may be applied only once to the teeth and left for 45 minutes; the gel used in other systems may be applied to the teeth several times in 15-minute intervals. Once the final application of gel and laser is complete, the dentist will clean the teeth again to remove all traces of gel, and the procedure is complete.

At-Home Whitening Kits: At-home whitening kits require two visits to the dentist. Impressions of your mouth are taken during the first visit, which are then sent to a laboratory where custom-made trays are manufactured. These are to be fitted over your teeth to hold the whitening gel. You will return to the dentist to pick them up and receive instructions on how to use them with the gel. Typically, you will need to apply the gel to the trays and wear them nightly for two weeks (or until you have achieved the degree of whitening you desire). You can get top-up whitening gel from your dentist at home, but be careful not to overdo it.
