While the financial comparison might look attractive initially, teeth whitening in Bali is not worth the risk and inconvenience, especially not when you have access to world class whitening treatments that are safe for your long term dental health. Let’s take a closer look at dental tourism and whether the risk you undertake is really with the payoff.
The case for beautiful white teeth is no secret. Our digital lives have put the spotlight on everyone’s imperfections and the quest for the perfect smile really does make a difference to your beauty aesthetic.
White teeth are a hallmark of youth and good looks, because tooth discolouration is a sign of ageing. We are all born with white teeth but intrinsic and extrinsic stains that develop over time make a difference to the way we look.
While a teeth whitening treatment may have been very expensive a few years ago when they were first launched, they have become much more affordable now. World class treatments are available at local dental practitioners, who offer tried and tested approaches that protect your teeth while they whiten.
Why It Pays To Pay More?
If you haven’t done the research it is worth making the cost comparison with what you would pay locally vs a teeth whitening Bali treatment. If there is a price difference you would need to offset it against factors like
Protection By Australian Dental Legislation
Under the current legislation only registered and certified dental and medical practitioners may distribute teeth whitening products that contain more than 6% hydrogen peroxide.
This is because it has been proven how consumers are following unsafe practices at home, and do not follow the best practice guidelines.
Leaving a whitening solution on for too long or using it for longer than indicated by your dentist can have adverse effects on your teeth and cause damage to your dental enamel.
Selecting the correct concentration of bleaching agent for your teeth is also important, in order to not cause damage to your enamel.
Language And Communication Is Easier
Discussing your whitening goals with a foreign dentist leaves a large margin for error in communication. It isn’t worth taking the risk for a procedure that could be completed in an hour in your dentist’s office with minimal side effects.
Get Dental Care Post-treatment
If you have teeth whitening in Bali you impose more limitations on yourself, including the level of care you can get post treatment and the options that you , if something does go wrong.

Give Yourself More Options
If you have an in-chair whitening treatment and then decide you would like a top up treatment, visiting an Australian dentist makes this possible.
