Whitening in Budapest

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Budapest

Transform your smile with teeth whitening in Budapest . You can knock two-thirds off the price compared to home. So, if you’re visiting the city, make a little time to see the dentist to regain that knockout smile.

Budapest is a picturesque city located on the Danube River. Formerly the towns of Buda and Pest, they became one in the 1800s, but still retain their individuality. The City has many attractions in the form of its varied architecture, but also has plenty of unique attractions that will certainly keep you occupied outside your dental treatment.

Buda Castle is one of Budapest’s must-sees—although it’s hard not to miss it, as it sits proudly overlooking the city. The walk-through Castle Hill’s streets to get to the summit should be taken at a leisurely pace, as you will find plenty of nooks and crannies to explore in its narrow streets.

Budapest’s famous thermal spas are also not to be missed, with both indoor and outdoor pools available throughout the city. Some also offer pool parties aka “Sparties” where you can let yourself go splashing about in the water to pumping music and laser lighting.

A walk across the chain bridge over the Danube will bring you into Pest, where other sights, including Hungary’s Parliament Building, the French-style boulevard Andrassy Avenue and the cool District 8 neighbourhood are worth checking out.

With your teeth whitening treatment only taking a couple of hours, you’ll have more than enough time to enjoy the many sights of the city that Budapest has to offer.

Is Teeth Whitening a Good Treatment for Dental Tourists?


· Yes. It won’t interfere too much with the enjoyment of your holiday as it doesn’t hurt and there is no downtime for recovery (as with implants and other dental procedures).


· You should not experience after-effects (although some people do report a little increase in tooth sensitivity for a few days after the treatment).


· Laser teeth whitening doesn’t take long—only an hour or two to get a noticeably more attractive smile is worth the effort!


Is Laser Teeth Whitening Suitable for Everyone?

While laser teeth whitening is suitable for the vast majority of people, if you have cavities, gum recession or gum disease then it is probably best not to have the treatment. This is because it may increase tooth sensitivity, but more significantly may actually cause you pain or further damage to gums and teeth.

If your teeth are grey because of antibiotic staining, teeth whitening will not have any effect. In fact, the only way to achieve white teeth if you have tetracycline staining is to get dental veneers.


Can I Trust the Quality of the Teeth Whitening in Budapest?

· The standard of dental care in Budapest is typically of a good standard. Hungary is in the European Union, and adheres to strict Europe-wide regulations and health and safety. Thus, the care you receive in Hungary will equal or exceed the dental care you receive at home. Plus, the same renowned brands, including BriteSmile® and Zoom®, are available in Hungary as well.

What is the Procedure for Teeth Whitening?

Laser Teeth Whitening

This procedure takes up to two hours at your dentist’s office. Before treatment begins, the dentist will compare the colour of your teeth with a shade chart—and then again after treatment, so you can see exactly how many shades lighter your teeth have become.

Teeth are then cleaned to remove stains and tartar, and the mouth is prepared by placing a rubber dam around the teeth to keep the bleaching gel away from the soft tissues in our mouth. You will be given protective eye goggles to protect eyes from the brightness of the laser beam.

Next, the dentist applies the bleaching gel to your teeth. At this point, the different whitening systems may work in slightly different ways. Some systems only require one application of the gel, but it stays on the teeth for 45 minutes. Others require multiple applications, with the gel staying on the teeth for only 15 minutes each application before being removed.

The laser is applied to the gel to activate the bleaching agents, the gel is removed after the recommended amount of time. The process is repeated again another couple of times, if the system your dentist uses requires it.

After the final application, the dentist cleans your teeth again to remove all traces of the gel before showing you the shade chart so you can assess you many shades lighter your teeth have become.

At Home Whitening Kits

These will require two visits to the dentist, requiring tailor-made trays that fit over your teeth to hold the bleaching gel. At your first visit, impressions of your mouth will be taken and sent to the lab to make the trays. Then a few days, you can return to the dentist to pick up the trays and receive a demonstration.
