Whitening in Thailand

The Ultimate Guide to Whitening in Thailand

Find a quality-checked dentist and book your teeth whitening in Thailand with Dental Departures.

Aussies and Kiwis visit southeast Asia more than anywhere else in the world – and Thailand is their number one destination. Having a teeth whitening treatment here while on holiday makes sense as it will only take a few hours out of precious holiday time, but will save at least 50% on costs back at home.

An unbeatable holiday destination, Thailand's dental services are gaining a respect parallelling its tourism trade. Regardless of whether you are trekking in Chiang Mai, bargaining hard in Bangkok or indulging in some rest and recuperation on one of its many idyllic beaches, Thailand is sure to deliver, either as a holiday destination or for its dental services. 

Imagine returning home from holiday with a dazzling smile.

Why have Teeth Whitening in Thailand? 

Thailand’s dental facilities are excellent. Having been leaders in dental tourism for many years the infrastructure and expertise here is second-to-none. Thailand was the first country in Asia to gain accreditation with the prestigious Joint Commission International, an organization which monitors global healthcare standards. 

By booking with Dental Departures you will be given access to quality-checked dentists whose qualifications and expertise are verified - and you are able to check this information for yourself on our website. Along with real patient reviews and lots of other valuable information we provide you with the information you require in order to choose a reliable dentist. 

Visiting a Thailand dentist for teeth whitening treatments is cost-effective, and we will guarantee that you won’t pay more than you need to. 

How long do Teeth Whitening take in Thailand?

The length of treatment depends on whether you are having laser teeth whitening in a dentist’s clinic or whether you are using the at-home professional whitening kits. Both methods use a gel containing a bleaching agent, with the in-house laser system consisting of a much stronger bleaching agent.

Laser Teeth Whitening

For the quickest and most noticeable results laser teeth whitening is the best choice, taking only around 2 hours to complete.

The process involves the application of the gel to your teeth, with the laser’s beam directly activating the bleaching agent in the gel. The gel is applied in 3 x 20 minute intervals and the laser activated after each application. Your dentist will be careful to ensure the soft tissues in your mouth are covered so the gel only comes into contact with your teeth and you will be given protective goggles to protect your eyes from the laser beam. After the third and final application your dentist will remove all traces of the gel and clean your teeth thoroughly to complete the procedure.

Professional Home Whitening Kits

The professional whitening kits involve the application of the gel to your teeth by using a tray which fits over your teeth. The tray will need to be made specially to fit your teeth and so you will need an appointment with your dentist for the impressions to be made to send to the lab where the trays are custom-made.

After a few days you will need to go back to your dentist to pick up the trays and the gel. You will be shown how to use them and will probably have to wear them each night for a number of weeks until you are happy with the results. 

What is the cost comparison of Teeth Whitening in Australia and New Zealand to Thailand?

Laser teeth whitening in Australia costs around AUD $588 but in Thailand prices start from AUD $230. The at-home whitening kits are around AUD $270 in Australia but inThailand are as little as AUD $66.

Teeth whitening treatments are one of the most affordable of all the cosmetic dentistry procedures in Thailand, and with so little time involved why not treat yourself to that new white smile?
