Whitening in Almeria

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Almeria

Last fact-checked: 14 March 2020

Planning a trip to Spain for your next holiday? Then what better opportunity to treat yourself to a brighter smile with teeth whitening in Almeria—the perfect accompaniment to that new tan!

A fantastic smile has the potential to be one of your best features; if yours could do with a little sprucing up, then the good news is that it’s easily fixable with a simple teeth whitening procedure.

As we age, our teeth tend to yellow, especially as all those years of consuming teeth-staining food and drink (particularly black coffee and red wine) add up. A teeth whitening treatment is a quick way of improving your smile dramatically. As it will only take a couple of hours out of your holiday, it will be well worth it.

What Is the Process for Teeth Whitening?

You will have a consultation with the dentist, who will examine your mouth to make sure you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. If you have any dental health problems, such as active gum disease or tooth decay, the treatment is best avoided until you have a clean bill of dental health. This is because the whitening treatment may exacerbate existing problems, as well as cause increased sensitivity that you may experience for the rest of your life.

It’s also important to know that not all teeth stains will be removed with teeth whitening procedures, as the gel-laser combo only works on external stains. Thus, if you have teeth staining caused by antibiotics you’re out of luck because this is an internal stain. The only way of effectively altering the look of these stains is with dental veneers.

Laser Teeth Whitening: For laser teeth whitening there are multiple different systems on the market, like Zoom!® or BriteSmile®. All are equally as effective in terms of whitening ability, but the procedure may vary slightly in terms of the application method of the whitening gel. However, the basic procedure remains the same and is carried out at your dentist’s office.

It generally takes between one and two hours to complete the treatment. The dentist will first clean your teeth thoroughly, and then prepare your mouth by placing a rubber dam around the teeth to protect the soft tissue from the bleaching gel. You will be asked to don protective glasses to shield your eyes from the bright light of the laser beam. The gel is applied to the teeth and after each application, the laser beam is directed at the gel to activate the bleaching agents that whiten the teeth.

This is where the two systems may differ. Some systems require just one application of the gel which may be left on the teeth for up to 45 minutes. Others require multiple applications but for a shorter time, normally around 15 minutes, with the gel being removed and reapplied each round. This may be repeated several times. At the end of the procedure, the dentist removes all traces of the gel and cleans your teeth and mouth again. The procedure is complete and all that’s left is for you to show your new smile to the world.

At-Home whitening kits: Dentists usually offer at-home whitening kits, which while not as effective as laser teeth whitening, do usually give better results than any over-the-counter remedies. You will need to arrange for two visits to the dentist for this. At the first one, the dentist will make impressions of your mouth which are sent to a laboratory where custom-fit trays that are placed over your teeth are made. These trays will hold the whitening gel and are typically to be worn overnight while you sleep.

In the morning, you clean your teeth and the trays and repeat the process for a period of two weeks, or until you are happy with the degree of whitening. You can always get more gel from a dentist at home to top-up the whitening effects.

Is the Quality of Teeth Whitening in Almeria as Good as at Home?

Yes it is. Healthcare in Spain is among the best in the world and, as an EU member state, Europe-wide regulations on hygiene and safety are followed. Dental clinics are state-of-the-art utilising the best technologies and world-renowned brands. All dentists you’ll see on the Dental Departures site are all highly-skilled and able to offer the same excellent quality you would expect from a dentist at home.

You are right to want to assess the quality of the dental care abroad—it is your dental health after all and you obviously it makes sense to look after it as best you can. This is why Dental Departures lists only pre-screened clinics that have been background-checked for quality.

Is Almeria a Good Location for Dental Tourists?

Almeria is a traditional, old Spanish city with a stunning Moorish fortress but it has all the modern facilities and amenities you would expect to make for an enjoyable holiday. It overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and is perched on a craggy stretch of coastline with gorgeous beaches, hidden coves and traditional fishing villages where you’ll find authentic Spanish food while you watch the sun dip down beyond the Bay of Almeria.

It’s a world away from some of the more raucous Spanish resorts that get packed out with tourists, making it a great place to unwind and take life at a slower, steadier pace. If this sounds like your type of place, then Almeria will be well-suited for a trip as a dental tourist.
