Do you need to brighten your smile? Clinics in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia offer effective teeth whitening at a lower price. Combine your treatment with a wonderful vacation in one of the popular tourist destinations in Asia.

KL is home to the world’s twin towers–the Petronas Towers. Beneath this iconic building is Suria KLCC shopping mall, which is an upscale retail center that features foreign brands. It also has a philharmonic theatre, an art gallery, a Science center, and an underwater aquarium. Just a few steps away from the Petronas Towers is the spacious KLCC Park that has a water fountain, jogging track, walking park, and wading pool for kids.

Visit other interesting sites such as historical buildings, museums, wildlife parks, or nearby beaches. Taste local cuisine from the hawker stalls or get souvenir items and traditional goods from Central Market. There’s plenty to explore in the KL and surrounding areas, where you can take snapshots to show off your newly whitened teeth.

Please Tell Me More about Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening lightens your teeth and removes stains and discolorations. A number of whitening systems are available: toothpastes, rinses, gels, strips, trays, and many others. The safest and most effective way to whiten your teeth is through laser teeth whitening or take-home whitening kits provided by a dental clinic.

First, it’s safe because the dentist from Kuala Lumpur performs a complete examination before the treatment. This includes a review of your dental and medical conditions. Once confirmed the procedure is right for you, the dentist will begin the treatment by covering your gums and oral cavities with a gel or rubber shield to protect them from the effects of the solution. It’s extra protection which you can’t get when using over-the-counter whitening systems.

Second, it’s effective because you can see the results right after the treatment. This depends on the degree of discoloration. In some cases, the dentist recommends take-home kits.

Take note there are two types of stains: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains stick to your teeth due to food, dark-colored beverages, tobacco, and the routine wear and tear. Intrinsic stains form on the interior of the teeth, caused by aging, trauma, or exposure to some minerals or excessive ingestion of fluoride. Teeth whitening techniques will have no effect on intrinsic staining. Your dentist can help guide you through your options.

How Will I Know if It’s Right for Me?

The dentist from KL will check if the treatment is best for you. A complete examination will be taken to check your suitability for the treatment as damage can be caused to your teeth if you are not suitable. Teeth whitening treatment is best for people with healthy teeth and gums (no dental restorations). Just a reminder, it’s not recommended for:

  • Children below 16 years old
  • Pregnant or lactating woman
  • People with sensitive teeth, gum disease, or sensitivity
