Whitening in Palma de Mallorca

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Palma de Mallorca

Get teeth whitening in Palma on your next holiday and rejuvenate your smile. The simplest way of making a real difference to how you look, a bright, white smile takes years off you—and if you get laser teeth whitening the effect will be dramatic.

Is Teeth Whitening a Good Treatment to Have as a Dental Tourist?

The fact is that most dental treatments can be just as easily undertaken overseas as a dental tourist as they can at home. They may take a little more planning than usual to make sure any treatments are completed before you return home, and, of course, to research and find a suitable clinic that you trust.

While you can get a variety of over-the-counter teeth whitening products (and it’s a moot point whether any of them work as well), the treatments offered by dentists are more effective. They offer in-office whitening in the form of laser teeth whitening, or at home whitening kits. Obviously, you perform the latter treatment at home, but you will need a couple of trips to the dentist’s office to have trays made that fit over your teeth to contain the whitening gel. Provided you have enough to time in Palma to wait for your trays to be custom-made, this treatment is perfectly fine for dental tourists.

On the other hand, laser teeth whitening requires just one visit to the dentist, lasting around two hours. This is also a good treatment if you are a dental tourist because:

· The treatment is pain-free and has no downtime so it likely won’t interfere with enjoying your holiday. Some people do experience sensitive teeth for a day or two after the procedure so talk this over with your dentist, especially if you have sensitive teeth.

  • The treatment is quick.

· The results from laser teeth whitening are immediately noticeable.

  • The treatment is highly-effective.

· Laser teeth whitening is cheaper in Palma than at home.

Am I A Suitable Candidate for Teeth Whitening?


Some people are not suitable got teeth whitening. If your dental health is poor, for example if you have gum disease, then it’s not recommended you have your teeth whitened. Not only could it potentially worsen your condition but may leave you with permanently over-sensitive teeth and/or gums, which is certainly not something you’d like to live with long-term.

Other people that won’t benefit from teeth whitening are those who have antibiotic staining from exposure to drugs like tetracycline whilst in the womb. As this staining is on the inside of the teeth (intrinsic), teeth whitening treatments will have no effect as the treatments only work on external (extrinsic) stains.

What’s Involved in the Laser Teeth Whitening Procedure at the Dentist?

Laser teeth whitening is carried out in just one session at the dentist and typically takes no more than a couple of hours. Before treatment commences, your teeth will be compared to a shade chart, and again after treatment, so you can see exactly how many shades lighter your teeth become following the procedure.

The dentist will prepare your mouth for the treatment by cleaning your teeth thoroughly. A rubber dam is placed around the teeth so the bleaching gel doesn’t get on our tongue or other soft tissues in the mouth. You will be asked to put on protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the bright laser beam. The bleaching gel is then applied to your teeth and a laser beam used to activate the whitening agents in the gel.

This is where things may differ slightly depending on the teeth whitening system your dentist uses. For example, some systems require three applications of the gel and laser, 15 minutes apart, whereas other systems require just one application of the gel for 45 minutes. Don’t worry—whatever system your dentist uses, the results will be comparable.

After the final application of gel and laser, the dentist will remove all traces of the gel and clean your teeth again—then the shade chart will be used to demonstrate just how much lighter your teeth have become.

What’s Involved in Getting an At-Home Whitening Kit? 

Impressions of your teeth are made during the first visit to your dentist. These are sent to a laboratory where custom-fit trays are made to fit over your teeth. This is where you put the whitening gel.

You will need to return to your dentist to pick up the trays and your gel, as well as receive a demonstration on how to use them. Once you have finished the gel (it usually lasts around two weeks if you use it every night) you can always go to your home town dentist at home to get more.


Can I trust the Quality of Teeth Whitening Treatments in Spain?

Of course. Spain is a European Union member state, not a third-world, poverty-stricken country. It has good standards and also conforms to Europe-wide regulations of health and safety.

The dentists in Spain are well-trained and the materials they use are from the same world-renowned brands your dentist at home uses. Don’t think that just because you are paying less that the materials are inferior quality, because they aren’t.

You may feel over-awed trying to find a dentist overseas, but we can help you find good-quality dentists that you can trust. At Dental Departures, we partner only with facilities we would go to ourselves. If we don’t feel comfortable about them then you won’t find them listed on our website.

We do a barrage of background checks, including onsite visits and looking through criminal/legal records. We substantiate dentist qualifications and professional memberships, as well as publish clinic photographs, patient reviews and prices so you can easily compare facilities and choose where is right for you.
