I’m a sucker for nice smiles and I think I have my mother to blame for this. Ever since I was two years old, I have attending the dentist annually. As I got older, this practice has now increased to every 6 months including the hygienist. I was taught to look after and be proud of my teeth by my mum and was always terrified not to neglect them after all the care and money my mum had contributed. This is emphasized by the fact that I had to start wearing a brace from the age of 9. All my teeth had come in too early and my skull had not grown to accommodate this. There were perfectly inline, they just had come out too far out of my little face. Long story short, teeth removed, pushed back, train-tracks, head brace and five years later all was fixed.
That’s just a brief account as to why I’m obsessed with nice teeth and looking after them.
As I grew older and into my forties, I frequently asked my dentist about teeth whitening as I was noticing mine didn’t look as bright as some of my friends in photos. I knew that this was because they had veneers, a ‘Hollywood Smile’ or at least had had hardcore teeth whitening.
I’m not a sultry mouth closed smile kinda gal. I’m a big cheesy grin putting it all out there kind of happy. Anyway, I digress. My dentist always said not to get my teeth whitened as my teeth were perfectly white and natural looking – they’ll never be the glow in the dark a la Ross from Friends beaming smile as that wasn’t real.
As the years went by, I could see more and more people I knew going down the path of whiter teeth and at 43 with years of coffee abuse, I was getting frustrated with my whiter than average natural teeth just not cutting it.
Then I heard about The Smile Bar. At the Smile Bar, they don’t whiten your teeth per say, they just remove some of the stains to showcase your natural teeth. This was exactly what I was looking for and I needed to know more!

It offers four treatment packages that include Single Whitening (1 x 20 minutes at AED 290), Double Whitening (2 x 20 minutes, AED 570), Triple Whitening (3 x 20 minutes at AED 850) and Yearly Whitening (12 x 20 minutes, AED 2,900).
I tried the 20 minute treatment and my teeth went from shade 16 to shade 10. I’m really happy with the results, but not sure I want to go any whiter. The results should last for around two weeks and you can go every month to get this topped up. One thing I did love was that normal life resumed immediately. I have read that on some occasions, you need to wait 3 days to drink coffee/ tea / foods that stain. But, with the protection they popped on to each tooth after the treatment, it means that I can eat and drink anything I want immediately. That said, I think I’m going to be more cautious and let this last!
Other services include a selection of nail treatments including manicures, pedicures, gelish applications, acrylic & gel extensions for the ladies. The Smile Bar also offers products from Swedish ‘Brilliant Smile’ to help maintain post-treatment teeth.
The Smile Bar is located at the First Floor, Palm Strip Shopping Mall in Jumeirah 1, Dubai.
