Teeth Whitening in Singapore

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Our WHITEN+ gel contains oxygenating molecules which effectively and gently penetrates and breaks down the stains within the tooth.

Thanks to its special formulation and utilising light energy, the oxygen generated will remain trapped in the gel and completely conveyed toward the enamel, maximising the whitening action.

Our WHITEN+ program is designed for effective teeth whitening to align with your unique lifestyle and needs. It is a safe whitening treatment that complies with the standards set by Directive 2011/84/EU, guaranteeing its quality and effectiveness.

What You Should Know About Teeth Whitening

Does Teeth Whitening Damage Teeth?

The active ingredient in whitening products (hydrogen peroxide) goes through the outer layer of your teeth and into the second layer called the dentin.

 

It removes and bleaches the stain particles in the tooth, thus whitening the teeth. 

 

This process does not damage the tooth layers or integrity of the tooth, but can sometimes lead to temporary sensitivity. The sensitivity is temporary and has no long lasting effects.

 

 

 

How Long Do The Results Last?

 

Teeth are naturally porous and will accumulate stains over time as you eat and drink dark coloured foods, smoke or clean your teeth improperly. 

 

The rate at which this happens will vary from person to person. Avoiding stain causing factors, and regular brushing and dental cleaning will prolong the effects of teeth whitening.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are Whitening Strips Safe Or Effective?

Improper use of over-the-counter whitening gels and strips can cause increased sensitivity and damage to your gums.

Also, these over the counter products have a lower concentration of the active ingredient for whitening which makes them less effective than whitening at the dentist.

 

Teeth whitening at the dentist is safer as we:

  • Check that your teeth are suitable for whitening
  • Take precautions to protect your gums
  • Monitor the progress after each stage of the whitening.

How Can I Maintain White Teeth?

As teeth are naturally porous, they will pick up stains over time. Regular consumption of coffee, tea or cigarette smoking are the main causes of yellow teeth.

 

To maintain white teeth, you may choose to use the take home whitening trays periodically, as well as regular dental cleaning with our WHITEN+ program.

 

If you feel that your teeth turn yellow too quickly after whitening, another option is to consider Ceramic Veneers to permanently change the colour and shape of your teeth. Ceramic Veneers do not stain as easily as your natural teeth. 

How Much Does It Cost For Teeth Whitening In Singapore?

Teeth Whitening cost in Singapore varies depending on the type of whitening. Typically, there are 2 types 

 

1. In office whitening:
  • This is more expensive as the results are immediate after the session

2. Take home whitening with customised trays:

  • You have to apply the gel and wear the trays for around 30mins - 2hrs every day for 2 weeks. This is usually cheaper, and also the trays are reusable for future maintenance.
Is Teeth Whitening Painful?

Every person has a different experience with tooth whitening, as it depends on their enamel, the outermost layer of the tooth.

 

The thickness of the enamel layer will affect if the tooth whitening is painful, as well as how effective tooth whitening is for them.

 

People with a thicker enamel layer will feel little or no sensitivity, and will have a better result with whiter teeth. If the enamel layer is thinner, it is more likely to have short term sensitivity and less whitening effect.

Main Causes of Yellow Teeth

Food and Drink

Coffee, tea and red wine are some major staining culprits. What do they have in common? Intense colour pigments called chromogens that attach to the white, outer part of your tooth (enamel), staining the external surface of your teeth

Tobacco Use

Two chemicals found in tobacco create stubborn stains: Tar and nicotine. Tar is naturally dark, and stains teeth dark black. Nicotine is colourless until it’s mixed with oxygen. Then, it turns into a yellowish, surface-staining substance.

Age

Below the hard, white outer shell of your teeth (enamel) is a softer area called dentin. Over time, the outer enamel layer gets thinner with acids and brushing, and more of the inner yellowish dentin shows through.

The inner layer also gets yellower with age, and this also exacerbates the yellow appearance of the teeth.

Other Causes of Yellow Teeth

Trauma

If you have been hit in the mouth or teeth before, it is possible for your tooth to change colour as a result. This occurs because the tooth reacts to the injury by depositing more dentin, a yellowish layer beneath the enamel.

Your tooth may also change colour due to an internal injury, so it is always better to visit your dentist if you suspect any injury. Internal discolourations may require internal whitening to lighten the teeth.

Medications

Tooth darkening can be a side effect of certain antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications.

Children who are given antibiotics such as tetracycline and doxycycline during the development of their teeth may experience the discolouration in their permanent teeth.

Chemotherapy and head and neck radiation can also darken teeth. These types of internal discolourations are more difficult to whiten.

Enamel Erosion

Sometimes, teeth turn yellow due to the surface of our teeth (the enamel layer) wearing out. This can be due to physical abrasion from harsh particles and heavy brushing, or can be linked to acid erosion. Once thinned, the effect is permanent as your enamel layer cannot grow or thicken. Whitening can help improve the colour. but there will be limitations to the results.

Beyond White Teeth

Natural teeth have limitations for whitening. For a smile that you can fully customise to be as white as you like, consider veneers. Veneers are delicate layers applied to the tooth surface, transforming its appearance. They enhance tooth color and fix imperfections.

Thank you very much!

李岳侨

Beautiful and friendly dental clinic, was recommended by my colleague. Been coming here for dental cleaning and fillings. Always a good visit!

J. Kho

This dental clinic has very good staff who are well trained and friendly. The dentists are also very good and will explain the treatment in detail before starting treatment. The equipment is very high tech and I believe they are able to do high quality work as I did my crown here and it looks much better than my colleague who also recently did his at another place. The waiting room is also very comfortable. good job!

C. Zheng De

This clinic is one of the best I have ever seen. I saw dr Justin for my implant which I did many years ago, the tooth was loose, and other drs told me to remove it as they could not find out what brand it was but dr Justin was able to take 3d xrays and locate the brand and specially ordered the part in. he saved me from having to do a surgery to remove and put a new implant which would have cost me a bomb. the tooth looks even better than the original thanks to the experieced dental technician Katsuya from Japan. 

Very happy and will keep coming back for my regular dental. 

G. Hock An

my workplace is close by and I had a problem with my tooth for a few days, so I made an appointment to come down. The receptionist who booked my appointment was very helpful and friendly to explain the way to the clinic from my office. I saw Dr Nicholas who was able to do a root canal treatment on the same visit so that I didn't need to come back. I felt safe and comfortable to do my dental treatment here as the dental picks are all wrapped up and sterilized and only opened before each treatment when im inside. 

P. Wendy

I had an amazing experience at this dental clinic. Dr. Justin Giam is a skilled dentist who explained everything thoroughly. The staff was friendly, and the clinic is conveniently located near my workplace. Highly recommended!

S. Goh

I am so glad I found Dental Designs, it was recommended to me by an expat friend. Dr Rares is the best dentist I have ever encountered. He is extremely conscientious and empathic in his work, with a great attention to detail. His work is stellar,  and he is always tuned in to the patient's needs. I have had multiple dentists in Oslo, Norway and in London, and although some of them have been excellent, I can truly say that not one of them has been of his caliber.

h. hjertenes

Great dental clinic! Dr Giam is very friend and his treatments are very gentle. He is good at explaining his treatment to his patients and a lot of great cafes nearby as well. Excellent customer service and helpful receptionist. Decent location too!

C. MichaelJr

My dental implant procedure here was top-notch. Dr Justin did the surgery for me and he was skillful.The team was patient and made sure I felt relaxed throughout. They even sent me a message to check up on me for post-surgery care. Thank you!

J. Florentyna

Dr. Tiffany Tan did an excellent job with my Invisalign treatment. My teeth are now perfectly aligned, and it was a comfortable process from start to finish. The clinic's hygienist, Kelly, is fantastic as well!

W Y

I can’t recommend this clinic enough, was so glad to have found it. Great facility, really enjoyed the ambience with radio music. But thats beside the point, Dr Tiffany is so terrific, they are so kind and really care about doing a good and meticulous job, and are so professional to share with me all x-rays of my teeth and explaining the issues and the process. I’ve never had any dentists that are so genuine and pro-active to help the patients be informed and understand the situations thoroughly. I feel very assured to be in such good hands. Thank you greatly!

T. Pham

I had a dental veneer procedure to fix my chipped front tooth, and the results exceeded my expectations. The clinic is conveniently close to my workplace, and the entire team was friendly and skilled. A great experience overall!

L. Chia Heng

Dr. Justin Giam and his team are exceptional. I had a replacement for my dental crown, and they made sure I felt comfortable and relaxed throughout. The clinic is just a short walk from the MRT station.

A. H.

I fell down and chipped my front teeth on holiday and came to doc Justin who is my usual dentist. he was able to fix it same day and by now I dont even remember which teeth was chipped. best doc in town!

l. pienkowski

I appreciate the professionalism and patience of the staff here. They did a fantastic job with my ceramic filling, which was much better shape and bite than the other one i had done previously at another clinic, and the clinic's location in the CBD is perfect for me.

R. Phua

The hygienist, Kelly, provided me with the best scaling and polishing I've ever had. The clinic is not only convenient but has friendly receptionists and great staff. I highly recommend it!

L. Josephine

I have been coming to this dental clinic for years and I bring all my family and recommend to my colleagues to come as well, because they are just so good. Especially Dr  Justin Giam, he is very skilled in crowns and veneers for me. My father's implant denture was able to be done smoothly, which was important because we have to fly in to Singapore to come for the dental treatment, so it saves us so much time here. The assistant doctors are also good to do the usual fillings and cleanings without any pain. The receptionists are friendly and helpful for making the appointment a pleasant one. Very good job dental design!

L. Winnie

I needed replacement retainers, and I found that dental designs provide clear retainers with same day pickup. its convienent as its close to my office and I could go out for a coffee while waiting.

E. Michael

My tooth has been hurting on and off for the past months and I ignored it as I was busy. i went to the dentist near my house and was told to extract it and do an implant as it was decayed and the cavity was too big. I didnt want to extract my tooth so i looked for other options and found Dental Designs where I was able to be seen and my tooth could have a root canal treatment and crown done instead of extraction. the tooth is functioning well and I can bite normally, there was no downtime. i strongly recommend Dental Designs as the dentist here is much more skillful and knowledgeable and the receptiontists are also very friendly.

J J

I did a whitening procedure here in the clinic and had good results, my friends commented it was much whiter and I'm happy with the results. there is a little sensitivity but it goes away after one day. highly recommend this clinic if you are looking for a dentist to do teeth whitening. the cleaning was also very comfortable and i didnt feel any pain or bleeding.

L. Kathleen

I read about Dental Designs as I wanted to do Invisalign treatment for a long time, and I chose Dr Tiffany Tan as she has good reviews. During the first consultation, she took time to listen to my concerns and also explained various options for me to suit my needs. There was also no hard selling even though I could not decide to do the treatment on the same day, the staff was also all smiles and very helpful. I came back again with my wife and Dr Tiffany was very patient in explaining my condition and the treatment options again, thus I decided to go with them. I completed my Invisalign treatment after about 18 months and the results are just as what Dr Tiffany promised. All my colleagues and friends are able to see the difference, I had an underbite which is completely resolved. The whole process was very smooth and the whole team was just so helpful and responsive throughout. Kudos to Dental Designs and Dr Tiffany Tan!

L. Ian Jun Jie

The dentists here are very skillful and do a good job, the staff is also very friendly and its easy to book appointments over whatsapp. I recently had to do a root canal and dental crowning for my tooth and the process was easy.

M. Hui Tan

Best experience I ever had at a dental clinic or medical clinic for that matter. I've been to many clinics in UK and Sydney and none of them are as good as Dr Tiffany. I have been using a specially prescribed mouthguard at night which cost me close to 3000 AUD from a specialist in Melbourne as otherwise I would have jaw pain when I woke up in the mornings. I went to a consultation with Dr Tiffany Tan as I wanted to straighten my front teeth which had shifted a little over the years.  Dr Tiffany was able to assess not only that my teeth could be straightened but that the bite was all wrong. I started on Invisalign treatment with her and 2 years later I am able to chew steak and peanuts without wincing, and I do not need the special mouthguard at all. Thanks to Dr Tiffany, I now have a normal life without pain and trust me it is unbelievable how much my bite affected my life prior to my Invisalign treatment. Thank you Dr Tiffany and the Dental Designs clinic team, you guys are amazing!

L. Mallory Alice

I saw Dr Justin to fix my teeth veneers which I had (stupidly) done at a dentist in Thailand as my friend brought me there during a holiday. He was able to check it and advise that my gums were badly infected due to the poor veneers which they did, which was causing a bad smell in my mouth. Dr Justin had to remove all the veneers and the hygienist Ms Kelly is also really gentle and I had the best clean in my life here with the air cleaning. Dr Justin was then able to give me new veneers which are properly fitted and which looked so natural compared to the other ones that were done and I feel like they are my real teeth. There is no more bad smell and my teeth and gums are healthy now!

S. Matthew Lucian

Firstly, I want to commend the dentist here Dr Justin as he is skilled in his work and delivers what he promises.

Additionally, I am seen within 15 minutes each time I come for my appointment, which is not the case when I attend other medical appointments in Singapore. 

The staff are also excellent. 

Z. Nael

Visited this clinic for the first time today after reading all the reviews. Indeed a dental clinic with very good service. The receptionist was very friendly. My appointment was at 12pm and I saw Dr  Justin at 12pm without any delay. He was very professional with his work and casual when talking. Made me feel comfortable. Took pics of my teeth to tell me what is wrong and what needs to be done. Not pushy at all asking me to do this and that. Price is pretty reasonable for where they are located. Thanks for the great service!

M. Yousuff

Popped into Dental Designs on Cecil street for the first time a couple of weeks ago and then a filling just yesterday. Staff are highly professional, from the front desk to the doctor and dental assistant.

Dr Peter Tang is fantastic at what he does. Really good bedside manners, explains the procedure in great detail to make sure I know what is going to be done and also removed my fear of having my teeth cleaned. Will definitely make this place my regular go-to for all dental matters!

Frequently Asked Questions on Teeth Whitening in Singapore

The basic concept of teeth whitening, is the bleaching of the outer layer of teeth to remove stains that have penetrated into them, so that your teeth colour can lighten by various shades.

There are basically 2 different types:

  1. The Take Home Whitening method, where your dentist will be take a scan of your teeth to create a customised whitening trays. These trays are thin and light to wear. You add a small amount of whitening gel to the tray and wear them from two to six hours per day or overnight until the desired whitening is achieved. This process usually takes two weeks. The trays are kept and can be used again for touch-ups.
  2. The In Office Treatment is where the teeth are professionally whitened with a high concentration whitening gel, with results seen immediately after the treatment.

Over 10 years of clinical use of teeth whitening products containing 10% carbamide peroxide have not shown any damage to existing fillings.

However, please take note that whitening does not work on existing restorations such as tooth-coloured fillings, crowns, bonding, veneers, and bridges.

This means that any pre-existing dental work may appear darker after teeth whitening, as only your natural teeth will lighten. These restorations may need to be replaced afterwards to match the new tooth shade achieved.

Teeth whitening does not cause damage to the structure of the teeth. Studies of teeth whitening products using 10% carbamide perixide showed no effect on the hardness or mineral content of a tooth’s enamel surface.

Many factors play into the length of time that teeth whitening lasts. For example, smokers or those who drink beverages that stain teeth, such as red wine or coffee, may not have the same long-lasting effects as those who do not smoke or drink those beverages.

Results following teeth whitening can last from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the potency of the treatment and how well one can maintain their oral hygiene. 

Reducing exposure to staining agents like the ones mentioned above will reduce the rate at which the teeth stain again and prolong the whitening effect.

Temporary tooth sensitivity can occur after the teeth whitening process, but it typically subsides after a few days. You can try to avoid cold or sour food or drinks, and use sensitive toothpaste to reduce sensitivity. The intensity and length of time associated with tooth sensitivity after whitening varies by patient.

It’s best to have realistic expectations before undergoing any whitening treatment. Your dentist should be able to explain what to expect with whitening.

Not all whitening treatments are equally effective on all people, and not all teeth will whiten to the same degree.

Teeth whitening can change a tooth’s colour by several shades, meaning teeth that are more stained or discoloured won’t whiten to the same degree as teeth that were whiter originally.

It also depends on the structure of your teeth as to how effective the teeth whitening will be.

Teeth whitening has become a popular way to prepare for weddings and other social events where people want to look their best. But because some treatments can take time to be effective, you should make sure you leave enough time before the big day.

Home whitening kits using gels can take up to two weeks to achieve results. If you have your teeth whitened professionally by your dentist (sometimes called an “in-chair” treatment), the treatment may be completed in a single appointment of about 1-2hours.

If you have an oral health condition such as tooth decay or gum disease, this should be treated as a priority before arranging a cosmetic treatment. If you haven’t had a cleaning done for a while, this will need to be done before the whitening so as to allow the gel to contact your teeth properly.

Your dentist will let you know what to expect from teeth whitening and if you are able to have teeth whitening done. When you’ve found out what the treatment involves and what the possible side-effects are, you’ll be in a position to judge whether teeth whitening is the right option for you.

Everyone responds differently to whitening treatments and everyone will whiten at different rates.

Stains that have recently formed are easier to treat than those that have been present for many years.

Teeth that are yellow or brown tend to respond better to whitening than teeth that are grey in colour.

Younger patients typically whiten more quickly than older patients, but do know that every patient is different and results will vary across individuals.

When whitening, keep in mind that your smile looks most natural when the colour of your teeth matches the whites of your eyes.

Some people want a Hollywood white smile, which is usually whiter than what natural teeth can achieve. In such cases, it may be worthwhile to consider ceramic veneers as an option, as they can be made to a much whiter shade if you desire, and they do not change in colour over time.
