Teeth Whitening Philippines
Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic dental service that removes stains and discolorations from the teeth. It lightens the aesthetic color of the tooth and brings it to its natural color without damaging the enamel. There are many teeth whitening services available in the Philippines.
Teeth whitening can also be done to bring your teeth to an even shade with your veneers. Just note that veneers can’t be whitened by any whitening treatment.
When choosing between in-office treatments or at-home kits, remember to opt for a service that is experienced and knowledgeable like The Smile Bar.
The Smile Bar is a leading professional teeth whitening service in the Philippines. Our presence in other countries, such as Thailand and South Africa, has allowed us to gain experience and learn more about the intricacies of safe teeth whitening at an affordable cost.
You can find our teeth bleaching services in BGC and Quezon City.
How much does Teeth Whitening cost in the Philippines?
On average, a tooth whitening session in the Philippines can cost you anywhere from Php 3,000 to Php 8,000, depending on session length and products used. The Smile Bar offers multi-session packages that reduce the cost of an individual session. Labour, the whitening gel, and use of facilities all play a role in the price of teeth whitening in the Philippines.
What is Teeth Discoloration?
Tooth discoloration is the process of your teeth’s color changing, often leading to a less bright, white, or uneven smile. Because everyone wants to have whiter teeth, here are two possible causes for tooth discoloration:
These are surface stains on the enamel (the outermost layer of the tooth) and are usually caused by lifestyle factors. Common culprits include consuming strongly colored foods and beverages (like coffee, tea, red wine, and some fruits and vegetables), tobacco use, and poor dental hygiene. These stains are typically yellow or brown.
This type of discoloration is caused by hue shifts within the dentin or the enamel of the tooth. Causes can be more intrinsic and include excessive fluoride consumption, exposure to certain antibiotics, and trauma.
When dealing with external discoloration, the good news is that there is something you can do about it, whether that’s by using a different set of dental products, toothpaste, or peroxide.
Extrinsic teeth discoloration is not permanent, it can be reversed. Contact us here at The Smile Bar to receive our top-tier teeth whitening services and get the cosmetic dental treatment that you’ve always dreamed of.
Causes of Teeth Discoloration
There are many possible causes of tooth discoloration. Here are some common ways that your teeth can lose its white luster:
Food and drinks
Coffee, tea, red wine, and cola are just a few of the many beverages that can cause tooth discoloration. As for food to avoid, blueberries, blackberries, and pomegranates are top culprits for teeth stains.
Nicotine and tobacco products
A study has found that if you chew tobacco or smoke cigarettes or cigars, you are more likely to experience tooth discoloration and feel unsatisfied with the color of your teeth.
In cases of tooth decay, brown spots may eventually turn black as the damage progresses.
The older you get, the darker and spottier your teeth become. This is part of the natural aging process.
Some people are just born with teeth that are more brown than others. In rare cases, there are also genetic disorders, like dentinogenesis imperfecta, which result in people being born with brown spots in their teeth.
Previous Dental Work
Old metal, silver, or white fillings done by a dentist can turn brown over time.
Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that relieves pain caused by an infected or abscessed tooth. Usually done by a dentist, this process involves the removal of the inflamed pulp. However, a tooth that requires this procedure may turn and stay brown because the root of the tooth dies and darkens.
Chlorhexidine mouth wash
Those taking this prescription mouth rinse for gum disease may be subject to its side effect, brown spots on teeth. Other possible side effects are altered taste perception and tartar build-up.
Antibiotics like tetracycline and doxycycline can stain teeth. However, this most often occurs in children whose teeth are still developing. Tetracycline is used to treat infections caused by bacteria including pneumonia and other respiratory tract infections; certain infections of the skin, eye, lymphatic, intestinal, genital, and urinary systems; and certain other infections that are spread by ticks, lice, mites, and infected animals. Doxycycline is an antibiotic that’s used to treat infections including chest and dental infections, skin infections and conditions like rosacea, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
If the nerves of your teeth are damaged due to trauma, brown spots may appear. In severe cases, the entire tooth may turn brown. Teeth are also known to turn gray in certain instances of trauma.

Teeth Whitening Aftercare
We’ve highlighted some of our top tips for teeth whitening aftercare below:
Avoid certain foods and drinks
The procedure will cost you money so making the most out of this investment ensures that your results will last for a longer time. Being aware of the food that can cause discoloration can help in avoiding them. A rule of thumb to note is to not take in any food or drink that will stain a white t-shirt within 72 hours of teeth whitening.
Should you decide to drink any of these beverages, drinking with a straw will help as it lessens the contact with your teeth. This is also a cost-friendly way to keep your teeth whiter for longer.
Some of the food that can lead to teeth discoloration include:
- Tea and coffee are brews that can stain your teeth instantly
- Dark-colored sauces such as red pasta sauce, soy sauce, and barbeque sauce
- Fruit juices and other acidic food that can weaken the enamel
- Dark chocolate which contains caffeine, an ingredient that causes stains
But if you really can’t help eating these foods right after your whitening session, Nano Seal Total+ is perfect for you. It is a two minute solution that remineralizes the enamel and seals the whiteness of your teeth allowing you to eat and drink anything you want right after your treatment.
Having proper oral hygiene
While most of these may seem familiar from our dentist, it’s all the more significant to do these after teeth whitening.
- Brush your teeth at least 2x a day with the right toothpaste.
- Floss your teeth at least once a day to get rid of plaque build-up.
- Rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash at least once a day to get rid of bacteria and plaque.
- Maybe opt for a Brilliant Smile Boost at least once or twice a week as a form of touch up and prevention for discoloration. Regular toothpaste may be used for the remainder of the days of the week.
- Add Brilliant Smile Oral Care to your daily routine, this is the perfect aftercare to maintain your bright smile at an affordable price.
Receiving touch up treatments
This may depend on what kind of bleaching treatment you got for your teeth, but the results’ length will depend on your diet and lifestyle.
Touch up treatments every six months or so are a great way to keep your teeth bright and restore that natural shine to your smile. If price is a concern, you may avail single whitening for touch-ups. However, it may be better to avail our Premium Smile Bundle (especially if you’re in Metro Manila) to lower the cost of each session.
