Teeth Whitening in Singapore. Home or Dentist?

Teeth Whitening was a tough task back in 90’s as there were only couple of options available at the dental clinics. Gone are those days when your dentist would make molds of your teeth, send them off to a lab, wait for a week to receive back your custom fitted teeth whitening mouthpiece filled with peroxide (at a very low concentration) pressed against your teeth and gums. After 3-4 visits, your teeth would be officially declared whiter after having spent several hundred dollars.

Thanks to the technological advancements, teeth whitening in Singapore, both in the dental office and at home, has changed immensely over the last two decades making the process simple and less time taking.
