With teeth whitening becoming one of the most popular and requested cosmetic procedures around the world, The Smile Bar’s first flagship has been launched in Wan Chai, Hong Kong. Fresh from Sweden, the opportunity to give everyone a potentially perfect healthy smile in just 20 minutes using its revolutionary teeth whitening gel and a sophisticated whitening lamp. Just as you would pop in for a quick blow dry or get your nails done to look and feel good, The Smile Bar is a painless pamper that will leave you wearing a brilliant smile.
The Smile Bar is changing the way teeth whitening is seen by offering a radically different experience to guests. The first impression as you walk in is a minimalist high-tech space-age ‘salon’ and you wonder where all the equipment is, but as it turns out, The Smile Bar is a relaxing sanctuary that sets itself apart from all your misconceptions. You are seated in their specially designed pods (so retro, yet still so space-age looking) for a peaceful and harmless moment of relaxation while you let the formula do its work in 20 minute intervals and can potentially get your teeth between 2 to 9 shades whiter – it is not a case of “one size fits all” as the outcome depends on your dental hygiene, lifestyle (consumption of tea, coffee, cigarettes, etc.) and natural genes.
So what sets this treatment apart from others? Firstly, the ambience is refreshingly cool from a design aesthetic and the founder Andreas Worner and his team mate Julien Tanneau are very thoughtful in how they explain every step of the treatment process. Secondly, The Smile Bar’s revolutionary formula gel is 100% safe and does not affect your teeth enamel or gum in any manner. The formula acts only on the surface of the enamel without creating any pores. This highly advanced teeth whitening technique is only performed by trained professionals and is a painless experience.
Overall, the whole set-up is very calming and relaxing and is a quite refreshing state-of-the-art ‘salon’ that makes you feel good even before you see any potential results. The old mantra of “no pain no gain” simply does not apply to this treatment, as we did not feel any effects during and after, due to 7pH level in the formula gel. The harmless blue LED (and UV free) plasma light is placed right in front of your “denture guard” to add a further effect to making the gel work even better on the whitening process. Let’s face it, what else in this life has the potential to change how you feel in just 20 minutes and thus, can give your esteem such a boost and create a noticeable effect? We have avoided such treatments by the practice due to the chemicals used, so we loved this concept and how simple and effective it can be.
With four packages available from Single Whitening (1 x 20 minutes at HK$588), Double Whitening (2 x 20 minutes at HK$988), Triple Whitening (3 x 20 minutes at HK$1,388) and Year Whitening (12 x 20 minutes at HK$4,888), The Smile Bar creates a dazzling smile at an affordable price. Depending on the individual situation, the whitening effect can last up to six months however to maintain a pearly white breath-taking smile, the whitening treatment is recommended on a monthly basis. Before you leave, they provide some tips on how to maintain your brand new white smile and maybe you will want to purchase their mouthwash and toothpaste to ensure you maintain that great ‘new’ smile!
