3 years ago, I do not like coffee at all.Fast forward today, I literally can not start my day without drinking one tall glass/mug of coffee! My
addiction dependence to coffee made a huge impact on my teeth and health. Acid reflux became more frequent and my teeth turned more yellow. The stains on my teeth were very visible to the point that I do not wear pink or red lipsticks very often because these colors tend to highlight my corn yellow teeth. No amount of whitening toothpaste or even frequent brushing lightened my teeth. I wanted to have my teeth whitened for my wedding day. Luckily, Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics emailed me if I wanted to try their services. And guess what? (Malamang alam niyo na ang sagot!) One of the services they offered me was theri laser teeth whitening.

Before going to Shinagawa, I had no idea with regard to the procedure of teeth whitening. I did not researched at all because I was too busy transitioning from being an office girl to a full time private practitioner/freelancer. Ngayon pa ako nawalan ng time kung kelan supposedly marami akong time. Yes, truly ironic.
The doctors from Shinagawa were very kind and accommodating that they answered my questions from teeth care to the laser procedure to the very condition of my teeth. All of my issues were properly discussed by the dentists of Shinagawa. The teeth whitening procedure (done to me) uses chemically activated or light activated bleaching gel. It is composed of two steps oral prophylaxis and the teeth whitening procedure itself.
I underwent oral prophylaxis two weeks ago. Yesterday, I finally had the teeth whitening procedure. I was at the point of backing out because I have very low pain tolerance as in zero. Why? Dra. Frances explained to me that during the teeth whitening procedure teeth becomes very sensitive. This means that the patient may suffer from pangingilo to extreme pangingilo. Wow!! Eh pasta palang nga eh super takot na ako! haha. But, a blogger has to what she has to do right? The whitening procedure itself has three cycles composed of 15 minutes each. The whitening procedure depends on one's teeth sensitivity and the condition of the teeth enamel (meaning how quickly does the teeth react to the chemical and how badly stained the teeth are). They told me that there are patients that are good with the second cycle, there are some who finished until the third cycle without feeling anything and there are those who can even go to fourth cycle because their teeth are badly stained.
How does this teeth whitening procedure works?
First, the gums and other sensitive areas were covered securedly because the chemical or whitening agent is very strong because it can burn these areas. Of course, I took a selfie for everyone's satisfaction. O ayan, mukha akong alien na maganda ang kilay! Pantay yan in fairness. Salamat Ever Bilena and Milani Brow Tint. hehe
Then after applying the whitening gel, this laser was strategically placed in front of my teeth. I was given a red humongous shades to protect my eyes from the laser light. 15 minutes felt like forever. My heart was thumping like crazy during the first cycle. I went on and finished the second cycle without feeling anything. Before, we could start the third cycle I felt sensitivity. Aruy! I told the dentist not to proceed with the third cycle. I had episodes of pangingilo until evening and just now while typing this post, I experienced one.
Did my teeth became white? YES!!! It got two shades lighter. However, I noticed that it is not as white like those of celebrities. I imagined it to be pearly white. Like what the dentist told me, my teeth lightened a bit more today than how it looked like after the procedure. It does not look pearly white but it looked cleaner and way lighter. I am already thinking of wearing loud and vibrant colors this summer and I am so ready to flaunt these hues with my whiter teeth on photos.
Here is the before and after shot. To set the record straight, I do not have a nice set of teeth and I have an overbite too. (I am thinking of getting braces but let's see.)
Overall, I highly recommend Shinagawa Clinic. I will surely be a returning "client" next time because I was very much pleased on how well they took care of me during the procedure. They were very gentle all throughout the procedure.They were also kind enough to entertain and answer my questions.
