One of the fastest ways to have a makeover is to have your teeth whitened. You instantly have a better smile, giving you more confidence. I’ve had my teeth whitened in the past and as much as I want to do it often, I don’t, because I’m concerned with sensitivity during the procedure, its long-term effects and safety, and of course, the cost.
So when I heard about The Smile Bar, I got drawn to it because it seems different.
The Smile Bar is a teeth whitening salon from Sweden that offers a fast and effective teeth whitening process. It’s been around in Sweden for a decade already, and recently it expanded to Hong Kong, Bangkok, and now, the Philippines.
As soon as I entered, I knew this place was unique. The place is so sleek and chic, with the colors red and white dominating the area.
Instead of dentists’ chairs, there are egg chairs where you can sit comfortably during the treatment.
They also offer Bose headphones and iPads you can use while undergoing the procedure.
There’s a room called ‘shading area’ where you can check your before and afters.
And a powder room where you can brush your teeth. You don’t even need to bring your own toothbrush as they provide you with one, coupled with a bottle of distilled water for gargling.
You can choose among the following: Single Whitening for 20 minutes at P2999, Double Whitening for 40 minutes at P4999, Triple Whitening for 60 minutes at P6499, and Year Whitening for 12 20-minute sessions at P24999.
Since I’m going to have my teeth whitened anyway, better go for the gold so I went for Triple Whitening. Before starting, their staff named Chen made me fill up a health declaration form. This procedure may be safe but it’s still not suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Chen first checked the color of my teeth using a shade guide. My ‘before’ shade is S22.
Chen then led me to the powder room for the pre-whitening procedure which consists of a mouth rinse and brushing of teeth to loosen the stain out of the enamel. At this point, I was impressed with Chen because she was patiently guiding me every step of the way.
Afterwards, I sat comfortably on the red egg chair while Chen applied the gel on my teeth. Their gels and products are 100% safe, painless, and efficient. The secret is the teeth whitening gel, which safely removes discoloration and stains from the enamel.
The LED Plasma Light technology activates the whitening gel. This is done for 20 minutes, and since I signed up for Triple Whitening, it’s repeated for two more cycles.
I did not feel any sensitivity or tingling sensation throughout the procedure. I just didn’t move much because I didn’t want the LED Plasma Light to be misplaced. The three rounds lasted for an hour but I didn’t notice it at all because I was happy entertaining myself by watching Youtube.
By the 1st cycle, my teeth whitened by 2 shades. After the 2nd cycle, it whitened by another 4 shades. By the 3rd and last cycle, my teeth whitened by 2 more shades. From S22, it went down to S14- a total of 8 shades lighter and brighter!
Fast, efficient, no pain, comfortable, and affordable. I’m sure you’d agree it’s a great deal. And oh, there’s one more upside- no downtime! By availing of the Nano Seal Total+, a liquid solution applied on the teeth after the procedure which protects the teeth and enamel instantly, you are free from any eating, drinking, and smoking restrictions in an hour. This add-on service is only P1299.
Now, excuse me as I flash my pearly whites. 🙂
