Teeth Whitening

 

Teeth Whitening

Whitening can be performed with an In-Office method or a Take-Home method.  Many different techniques and types of bleaching systems are available with a large variety of results that may depend on each person's ability to whiten their teeth.  Many In-Office bleaching systems can achieve a brighter and more immediate result, but the result may fade sooner and may also cause a person to experience a greater amount of sensitivity. We prefer to offer the Take-Home method due to less sensitivity, better long term retention of the whitening and the ability to keep your trays for future maintenance of your new white smile. 

 

About Pola Day and Pola Night

Fluoride Release

The addition of fluoride remineralizes the tooth surface, helping to reduce post-operative sensitivity.

 

Desensitizing Agent

The Pola Day and Pola Night gels contain a desensitising agent which acts on the nerve endings, and desensitises them at the pulp-dentin border, in turn minimising sensitivity and maximising patient comfort.

Neutral pH

Pola Day and Pola Night’s neutral pH ensures the full release of the peroxide without jeopardizing patient comfort.
