Whitening in Mexico

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Mexico

Last fact-checked: 20 March 2020

Treat yourself to a dazzling white smile with teeth whitening in Mexico. There are plenty of clinics just over the Border if you live near enough to take a trip, or you can visit a dentist while on holiday, returning home with a smile you can be proud of. Book online with Dental Departures and save yourself over 50%.

Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and least painful cosmetic dentistry procedures available for turning a lackluster smile into a dazzling white one–and it can all be achieved in a couple of hours in the dentist’s chair.

Traveling specifically to Mexico for tooth whitening treatments is probably not going to save you money unless you live near the Border, but it certainly will if you are already there. Vacationers and leisure travelers often have spa treatments as a holiday treat, so why not treat your teeth to a makeover, and return home with a noticeably brighter smile?

Am I Suitable for Teeth Whitening?

It’s good to ask the question about whether you are a suitable candidate and to know the facts about teeth whitening. Although most people think of it as a cosmetic procedure, teeth whitening treatments are medical procedures and care should be taken with their application—overuse can permanently damage teeth, with consequences that may include pain or discomfort for the rest of your life. It’s also worth knowing that for some stains, like antibiotic staining, teeth whitening doesn’t work.

Generally, you should have good oral health with no tooth decay or active gum disease before considering teeth whitening treatments.

Why Have My Teeth Whitened in Mexico?

Regardless of how well you look after your teeth, over time they will become discolored by food, drink or smoking. Not only do yellow teeth look aging, but they can diminish your confidence. Returning your smile to its true whiteness will make you look younger, and give you some self-assurance you may have been lacking.

The best dentists in Mexico use the same modern technologies that your dentist at home uses. There are a number of laser dentistry teeth whitening brands and systems in use, including Brite Smile® and Zoom!® The one your dentist uses will be a matter of personal preference but they are all equally effective.

Booking an appointment through Dental Departures will give you access to good quality dental clinics offering laser teeth whitening, so you can be certain of receiving a high standard of care, on par with anything you would receive at home. We pre-screen clinics, confirming dentist qualifications, professional memberships and more, providing reassurance that you will be seen by a trustworthy professional. Take a look at our top-rated clinics in Mexico for your teeth whitening:

Supreme Dental Clinic, Los Algodones
Ocean Dental, Cancun
KEMMClinic, Mexico City

The Dental Departures’ price guarantee also ensures you will always get the most competitive price for your teeth whitening in Mexico too.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Take in Mexico?

Teeth whitening may be done at your dentist’s office with one of the laser whitening systems, or at home with a professional take-home kit. Both use a peroxide-based gel, but the one at your dentist is a lot stronger than the one you use yourself at home.

Laser Teeth Whitening: The treatment only takes hours to transform your smile. Before treatment starts, your teeth will be cleaned thoroughly and any stubborn stains and tartar removed. Your dentist will match your teeth’s current shade with a chart so that you can see how many shades lighter they are when the treatment is finished.

Your mouth will be prepared so that the bleaching gel is only in contact with your teeth and not the soft tissues of your mouth. Goggles will be provided to protect your eyes from the laser. The gel and laser are applied three times in total, with a wait of 15 minutes between each application, although the exact number of applications may vary, depending on the system your dentist uses.

After the final application, all traces of the gel will be removed and your teeth cleaned thoroughly. The shade chart will be used to assess how many shades whiter your teeth are after the treatment, compared to before.

Professional Home Whitening Kits: A more subtle result is achieved with home lightening kits, and they also take a longer period of time. The gel will be applied to your teeth every day using custom made trays until you are happy with the lightening result achieved.

You will normally need two visits to the dentist. At the first visit, impressions will be taken of your teeth and sent to the lab to make the trays. This usually two or three days and you will return again to the dentist to pick-up your trays and gel.
