Whitening in Barcelona

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Barcelona

Last fact-checked: 14 March 2020

Spruce up your smile with teeth whitening in Barcelona. If you’re on holiday or business in Spain’s most-visited city, why not upgrade your smile and save potentially hundreds on the price back home.

Just a couple of hours in the dentist’s chair can really transform your smile and you’ll be surprised what a difference it makes. If you feel confident, you will tend to smile more, which can significantly affect people’s perception toward you. It really is one of the most effective cosmetic dental procedures you can get for your money—and it is one of the least expensive ones, too.

Laser teeth whitening, carried out at a dental clinic, is the most effective way of whitening teeth. However, dentists can also provide at-home whitening kits so you can do it yourself in the comfort of your own home. These differ from over-the-counter products because custom-made trays are provided to hold the gel and fit over your teeth at night. The whitening power of the gel is stronger than over-the-counter products, too.

Why Is Teeth Whitening a Good Treatment for Dental Tourists?

Teeth whitening treatments are a quick cosmetic dentistry procedure that can make a big difference to your smile. So, what makes it such a great option for dental tourists visiting Barcelona?

1: It’s Effective: Your smile can be improved either subtly or dramatically, depending on what treatment you opt to have. Laser teeth whitening can whiten your smile by up to 14 shades, whereas at-home kits provide a gentler whitening effect.

2: It’s Quick: Laser teeth whitening is over in around two hours in the dental office. For an at-home whitening kit, the time spent at the dentist will be less, but you will need two visits—the first to have impressions made of your teeth (for the custom-made trays), and the second to pick them up.

3: No Downtime: Although you may experience a little tooth sensitivity after laser teeth whitening, you should be able to carry on with your normal daily activities without too much discomfort.

4: You’ll Save Money: Dentists in Spain are generally less expensive than dentists at home, so why not take advantage of the lower prices?

Can I Trust the Quality of the Whitening Treatments in Barcelona?

Spain has a high standard of healthcare services and, as a European Union member state, is subject to Europe-wide regulations on hygiene and safety. Dental clinics are privately run, and so they tend to be modern and equipped with the latest technologies, using internationally-branded materials and applying up-to-date techniques.

However, like anything else in life, it always pays to do your own research to find a suitably reliable facility. All of the verified clinics listed with Dental Departures have already been pre-screened; when you book with us, you get the peace-of-mind that you will be seen by a trustworthy dentist.

Onsite visits and legal/criminal records checks are among the steps we take in our verification processes and you can also see details of dentist qualifications, professional memberships and patient reviews for each facility on our website. Listings also include location maps, clinic photos and prices. This all allows you to easily make comparisons and book your dental appointment at clinics like these in Barcelona with confidence.

What Is the Process for Teeth Whitening? 

The dentist will first need to make sure that you and your teeth are suitable for laser whitening. While a common procedure, it is still a medical treatment and your oral health will need to be in good shape, not only for the treatment to be effective but also for your safety.

Teeth whitening procedures can cause permanent damage if you have underlying problems, such as tooth decay or active gum disease, which could lead to permanent sensitivity in the teeth or gums—a problem that no-one wants for the rest of their life.

Some types of staining, such as antibiotic stains, will not be removed with teeth whitening treatment. In this case, it’s best to consider other alternatives, like dental veneers, to correct this problem.

The bottom line is that teeth whitening is an effective, safe treatment for most people. But, it’s certainly worth getting acquainted with the facts about teeth whitening and bearing in mind safety tips and advice before you fly out.

Procedure for Laser Teeth Whitening:

Carried out at your chosen dentist’s office, the first step involves the dentist cleaning your teeth thoroughly. Then, to protect the soft tissues of the mouth, a rubber dam is placed around the teeth. You will be asked to wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light of the laser.

Once these preparations have been carried out, the process can begin. A whitening gel is applied to the teeth and the laser directed at the gel to activate the bleaching process. Some systems require an application for 15 minutes, with the process repeated another two times, while others require one 45-minute application. Once over, the dentist cleans the teeth again removing all traces of the gel before you can admire your dazzling new smile in the mirror.

At-Home whitening kits:

Impressions are made of your mouth at the dentist’s office, which are sent to a laboratory to produce made-to-measure trays to hold the whitening gel. You place the gel in these trays and fit them over your teeth, typically overnight while you sleep. In the morning, remove the trays and clean your teeth and trays thoroughly to remove all the gel. Use the trays for two weeks (or until you have reached your desired result).

You can pick the trays and gel up from your dentist a few days after your initial appointment.
