    I had done at Phuket Bangkok hospital. A bit expensive I think 9000tb for memory but was about 3 years ago.

    Never been there but have been recommended by a few people Promaji near Merlin Hotel as a good Dentist, but not heard how they go with whitening though.

    Yeah... I had it done.... the laser whitening.. NEVER AGAIN!!!

    There was nothing wrong with the dentist or the procedure. And it was cheap.... 9K from memory, that included manual cleaning the day before. The problem is, with laser whitening, if you have sensitive teeth it will HURT like a mother for a couple of days.

    When I had finished, the lady asked if I wanted pain killers... I said "No"... Then I walked down stairs and the cooler air of the a/c down there hit my mouth. The pain is searing, so straight back up the stairs for the aforementioned pain killers 5555...The pain comes and goes for a couple of days. It will strike out of the blue...

    The treatment worked, and was done professionally.. I was happy with it... So if you have non sensitive teeth I say go for it... If, like me, your teeth are sensitive, still do it, but be prepared for moments of agony for a couple of days afterward, that hit at any time. albeit, it only lasts a minute or so, but man it hurts.

    Another way to achieve whiter teeth, without the pain, is Colgate Optic White. It works, and will lighten your teeth by at least 3 grades of whiteness (if that makes sense). Also, you can mix some bi carb soda with the paste, and that will further improve your teeth. But use it sparingly (the bi carb I mean, not the paste). It is abrasive and can damage enamel if used TOO much.. Maybe use it no more than one in three times you brush your teeth.

    This is the same clinic i have used for years.

    They are very capable...even providing me with an escort to the ATM as i hadn't realised i would have to pay per treatment done! <7>

    They are always busy and have many repeating customers.

    Why is the sensitivity only temporary?

    I really don't know... The lady warned me it MAY happen... and it did 5555... But I found this:

    "Although tooth sensitivity with whitening is very common, it is usually of short duration, lasting typically 24-48 hours. Years ago, most teeth whitening products contained very harsh ingredients that were found to actually damage teeth and cause extreme sensitivity. Products have improved greatly since then and now use high quality ingredients that are gentler on your teeth."

    And this, which was my experience:

    "rebecca's pocket

    .: January 2007 --> Zoom Teeth Whitening Caution

    Zoom Teeth Whitening Caution
    As a public service announcement: If you were thinking of having your dentist whiten your teeth using the Zoom System —don't do it! No one told me about the risk of SHARP SHOOTING PAINS inside your teeth during and after your procedure. It doesn't happen to everyone, they tell me (NOW they tell me) but it happened to both me and my husband. Let me be clear: this is a pain of short duration (though the sealant hurt—BAD—until they wiped it off) but it is more intense than any mouth pain I can remember, including my toothache. It continued to occur for the rest of the day ("perfectly normal"). My teeth are whiter, but it was not worth it. I would never do this procedure again.

    It can hurt like a bastard, but not everyone gets the pain. I wish I had known about it before I went 555

    Has anyone been to this clinic recently? I'll be going in for a whitening when there. Checked out their site and all their doctors have at least 10 years experience and some as many as 40. State of the art equipment and some very positive reviews.

    Dave's experience scared me a bit though, so I'm on the fence about laser whitening.

    Anyone else had it before?
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Yes , in the UK, I had the same thing with sensitivity , you need to avoid , strong coloured foods and drinks ( coke , coffee , red wine ) for a few days afterwards , take some Sensodyne or another brand of toothpaste for sensitive teeth to use as well , it helps

    Only ever heard bad reports and will never do it again remarks.
    Everyone knows dental work is cheap here in LOS and many go for the the whitening and plenty say that it wasn't worth it in the end.
