Christmas is the season of smiles and all the cool kids are thanking The Smile Bar for their pearly whites. Before the merry-making begins, it’s important to make sure you look and feel you’re at your most confident. Luckily, The Smile Bar invited us to try out their teeth-whitening treatment so that we can have teeth that shine brightly throughout the holiday season.

Here’s everything you need to know about this new cosmetic treatment.

Developed and patented in Sweden, The Smile Bar uses the latest in teeth whitening technology to help you prime your bright white smile to perfection. It’s a safe, non-invasive treatment, giving you visibly whiter teeth in as little as 20 minutes.

Before the treatment starts, they’ll be asking about your eating and drinking habits, a background on previous teeth-whitening procedures, and they’ll check the shade of your teeth before asking you to brush your teeth.

I had my first treatment way back in June and my shade was 30–which is quite yellow, thanks to my habit of drinking coffee every morning. My first whitening treatment got me 10 shades lighter. Going back last month, I had my teeth shade checked again and I got to maintain my shade 20 teeth. The Smile Bar gave me a Triple Whitening Treatment (₱7499) this time and I went from shade 20 to shade 14. Here’s what it looked like:

What I like about The Smile Bar is that it’s totally painless, not at all uncomfortable (they have couch pods, free WiFi, and soft pillows!), and they don’t bleach your teeth to an unnatural color. The treatment just brings back the original shade of your teeth, before all the stains and yellowing. Though it’s important to note that the whitest shade varies per person. My teeth could be as white as Shade 10 while others can reach the shade 6 or 8.

Maintaining your whiter teeth isn’t hard, either. They have a NanoSeal Total + (₱1299), which is a one minute solution, fitting for people who are always on-the-go. You no longer have to wait 72 hours post-treatment to eat your favorite food and drinks. You can also avail their toothpaste and mouthwash (which I did the first time) for a longer-lasting smile.

A special self-care treat

A nice pamper session that helps you prep that smile for the festivities to come, One Single Whitening (₱3999) session lasts for a total of 30 minutes, including an assessment of the type and degree of discoloration present in your teeth. See immediate results with your smile 2 to 9 shades whiter. Maintain a bright and healthy smile by availing of a Double Whitening (₱5999) or Triple Whitening (₱7499) treatment for long-lasting results.

For those who frequent social gatherings, the Premium Smile Bundle (₱28,499) is your partner in maintaining a flawless, photo-ready smile. The bundle comes with 12 direct whitening sessions with no expiry, so you don’t have to worry about staying on top of your treatments.
