Your teeth are precious gems so it’s only right to treat them with the respect they deserve! So why not pay a visit to Smile Inc., which specialises in cosmetic services, alongside its regular dental offerings. Its qualified specialists and surgeons use what it describes as the “gold standard in teeth whitening” compared to other methods. This refers to the laser technology they use, which can get your teeth up to 15 shades lighter (depending on your starting shade) and will treat even the deepest of tooth stains (both internal and external) with just one single hour-long treatment. Smile inc. was actually responsible for introducing the first laser whitening treatment to Asia in 1997 (in Singapore to be exact), so you know something that’s stood the test of time for more than two decades must be good. It’s a fuss-free way to get those teeth sparkling again, plus there’s no need for any take home maintenance kits.

Central Smile is a family-oriented dental practice conveniently located in (you’ve guessed it) Central! Before proceeding with its laser teeth whitening service (which takes around an hour and costs $8,000) you will have to book an $800 consultation to check your teeth are suitable. The results generally last for around one year, but if you’re a smoker it may be shorter. There’s also an at-home gel kit (for $5,000) so you can do your own whitening, but again a consultation is required to take an impression of your teeth to ensure the mould fits correctly. The practice says some people decide to use the at-home kit for a bit of a top up, when they notice the effects of their laser treatment beginning to wear off.

But it can also offer dental services at its Mong Kok location, including LED teeth whitening. The process (which costs around $8,000) takes about an hour and consists of four stages. Some people may decide to stop after the first stage if they feel they have reached their desired shade of whiteness, while others prefer to complete the full duration of the treatment.

Bayside Dental has locations in Clearwater Bay, Tung Chung and Discovery Bay, making it ideal for those who live outside of the city. Its team of professionals (which is made up of both expats and locals), offer teeth whitening services at each of these three clinics. They can use a high concentration laser in office, which takes between 1.5 and 2 hours to complete the whitening process (and costs $7,800). An at-home service is also offered (for $4,500), which involves coming in to the clinic so they can make an impression of your teeth, and around one week later your kit will be ready. The clinic says most patients reach their desired shade of white within two weeks and can then just use what’s left in the kit for top ups (as and when required).
