Whitening in Tunisia

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Tunisia

Last fact-checked: 7 February 2020

Smarten up your smile with teeth whitening in Tunisia . Laser teeth whitening is one of the most effective cosmetic dentistry treatments available. It’s quick, inexpensive and you’ll have noticeable results in less than a couple of hours. It’s also a great treatment to have on holiday as there’s virtually no downtime—so get started now with Dental Departures to save a few hundred pounds.

A great smile can increase your confidence and raise self-esteem. Other people respond to you more if you smile, and if you have white teeth you’ll have the confidence to carry it off. White teeth are associated with youth because they tend to stain and become yellow as we get older—partly as our enamel becomes thinner and you can see the yellow, dentin layer of the teeth showing through, and partly because of staining from food, drink and lifestyle habits, like smoking.

It’s worth knowing that if a substance stains your clothes, it will also stain your teeth .

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

You should bear in mind a few important safety aspects when using teeth whitening products . Although the procedure is commonplace it is still a medical procedure, albeit a cosmetic one, and it should be undertaken with due care and attention.

Before you consider any form of teeth whitening treatment, you must first ensure your oral and dental health is in the best condition, with no active gum disease or tooth decay which can be made worse with whitening treatments .

The last thing you want to do is cause permanent damage to teeth or gums with whitening procedures .

If your teeth are discoloured due to antibiotic staining , teeth whitening treatments will have little effect because they are only effective on extrinsic stains (those on the outside of the teeth). Unfortunately, antibiotic stains are intrinsic (on the inside of the teeth) and if you want to fix these stains, then the only solution is to use dental veneers .

Are Teeth Whitening Treatments Suitable for Dental Tourists? 

Laser teeth whitening is a great treatment to have as a dental tourist because the treatment isn’t painful; has little downtime; is quick and provides noticeable results straight away. In fact, your teeth can be whitened by up to 14 shades, great to show off during the remainder of your holiday in Tunisia and after you’re back home.

If you think laser teeth whitening results may be too dramatic, you can always opt for take-home whitening kits. The whitening effect of these kits, issued by your dentist, are gentler and deliver a more subtle result than laser teeth whitening. Unlike laser teeth whitening, you are in control of how white you want your teeth to be, carrying out the treatment at home and stopping when you achieve the result you desire.

What Is the Procedure for Teeth Whitening? How Long Will it Take?

Laser Teeth Whitening:

The process of laser teeth whitening typically takes between one and two hours. The first step is for the dentist to clean your teeth, removing tartar and stubborn stains. Protective goggles are given to you to protect your eyes, and a rubber dam is placed around your teeth, which protects the soft tissues in your mouth from the bleaching gel.

Once you are prepared, the dentist will apply the whitening gel to your teeth. The bleaching agents in the gel are activated by the laser, which the dentist applies once the gel is in place. Then, depending on the system your dentist uses, the gel is left on the teeth for a period of 15 minutes, removed and then the process repeated another two times. Alternatively, the gel may be applied just once but left on for 45 minutes.

Once the allotted time is up, the dentist will remove all traces of the gel and clean your teeth thoroughly, which completes the procedure.

At-Home Whitening Kits:

You will require two appointments at the dentist for this treatment. At your first visit, you will need impressions of your mouth taking. These are sent to a laboratory where custom-fit trays are made to fit over your teeth. These will hold the whitening gel.

After a few days, you can go back to your dentist’s office to pick up your gel and trays. They will make sure they fit and demonstrate how they should be used. Most patients wear them overnight while they sleep, rinsing them out and cleaning their teeth thoroughly when they wake up to remove all the gel.

The great thing about at-home whitening kits is that you can obtain further gel from your dentist at home if you want to top-up the whitening effect in the future.
