We all want whiter, brighter teeth. With the POLA whitening system, a beautiful smile is a goal you can quickly achieve. Tooth whitening is a process known as oxidation. Any discolorations within the tooth will be lightened. Organic materials break down to remove staining and create a whiter, brighter smile. There are many causes if tooth discoloration. Some of the most common include the consumption of highly colored foods (berries) and drinks (coffee, tea, red wine). Antibiotics at a young age, smoking, trauma, and aging can also result in discolorations. Whitening will remove any existing stains on your restorations, but will not affect the original shade. If you are considering some cosmetic restorations on your front teeth, speak to your dental professional about the whitening process before undertaking the restorations.
The POLA whitening system provides a couple of different options to meet your individual whitening needs:
The BOOST procedure is the answer for those patients living busy lifestyles. The POLA Office product contains 35% carbamide peroxide solution and is applied by your dental professional while you sit in the chair. You get whiter teeth instantly because of the extremely powerful peroxide. Your dental professional will fabricate custom trays for your treatment and the POLA product will be dispensed into your new trays. The best part is that the total treatment time is around 30 minutes!
POLA DAY AND POLA NIGHT
POLA Day and POLA Night are take home tooth whitening systems. Both are spearmint flavored, crystal clear gels that contain a unique blend of soothers, conditioners and water to reduce sensitivity. The gel is applied to custom made trays that you wear when you want to: at night or any time during the day. Your dental professional will recommend the exact product to suit your teeth and lifestyle. The POLA Day product is available in 9.5% hydrogen peroxide solution and is typically only needed once a day, 15 minutes at a time! POLA Night is made of a 16% carbamide peroxide solution and is made to work while you sleep! With either product, you should see results in about 5 – 14 days.
The POLA product is made to last indefinitely. Just simply touch up your teeth a few times per year for one or two days or nights to keep your smile looking brilliant. Without a touch up, your teeth will become stained by the same things that caused them to discolor in the first place. For the majority of patients, there are no side effects. However, some will experience temporary sensitivity. Upon completion of the treatment, the sensitivity should subside after several hours. In order to minimize this potential side effect, our dental professionals apply a fluoride treatment prior to your BOOST whitening session. Please speak to your dental professionals if you have any questions or are interested in scheduling your treatment today!
