#NoMoreFomo: Nicola Monteath tries Teeth Whitening in Dubai for the first time. 

The Smile Bar Dubai

Tucked in a corner of Palm Strip Jumeirah – the open-air California-style mall – is this newly launched spa (if you can call it that) from Bangkok that is about to make Dubai residents smile from ear to ear. And trust me, you won’t mind showing off your teeth after a session here. You’re greeted by friendly staff as you enter, taken to a calm space filled with egg-shaped chairs and briefed about your teeth whitening treatment before it begins. First impressions were great, as this spot doesn’t boat that horrific dental clinic vibe and you don’t have to sit back on a reclined chair and do absolutely nothing for an hour. But the best part of it all – considering we are speaking about teeth whitening in Dubai – is that it is ridiculously affordable. Dhs290 for a 20 minutes session!

The Procedure

I was asked to quickly rinse my teeth and brush it gently to take off anything that will interfere with my teeth whitening process. I was recommended one session – each being 20 minutes long – to begin with. Sat in my chair, put on my headphones and chose a YouTube playlist from the iPad handed over to me. Sinatra it was, to calm my nerves a bit. A unique teeth whitening gel was applied on a mouthguard before being placed on my teeth. For some reason I assumed it would tingle a little, especially when the UV light was placed on. It didn’t, not even for a second. After 20 seconds, I rinsed my mouth, and was recommended a second session to make my teeth brighter. The end result was a shade eight times lighter than my previous shade – unbelievable. My teeth were slightly sensitive for a few hours after, but I was allowed to eat and drink whatever I wanted as a protective film was rubbed on to my teeth soon after the session was complete. If you want quick, painless teeth whitening, The Smile Bar is highly recommended.

Btw, once done, you can get a manicure/pedicure at The Smile Bar too!
