How does POLA In-Office Teeth Whitening work?
At our dental clinic, we use the advanced POLA In-Office Teeth Whitening system. The specialized gel breaks down into oxygen ions and water when applied to the tooth's surface. These ions penetrate the enamel, breaking down stains and making them colorless. The level of whiteness achieved depends on the number of ions and application duration, with various shades available on the Pola chart.

Are you a good candidate for teeth whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is an ideal option for individuals with healthy teeth and gums and no fillings. Patients with yellow-toned teeth typically respond best to treatment. However, it is not recommended for those with sensitive teeth and gums, receding gums, defective restorations, or allergies to peroxide. Additionally, patients under the age of 18, pregnant or lactating women, and individuals with known peroxide allergies should also avoid teeth whitening.
If you're uncertain about your candidacy, our knowledgeable dentists are here to assist you.
Teeth Whitening Results: What to Expect
Thanks to the highly concentrated gel, the treatment takes just 30 minutes. The gel is pH-neutral, ensuring no discomfort during or after the procedure. Professional teeth whitening is most effective for superficial stains from foods and beverages. Stubborn stains from tar and nicotine may be harder to remove. Factors like teeth stain type and natural color will be discussed before your appointment.

- Use a Straw: When drinking beverages that can cause staining, use a straw to minimize contact with your teeth.
- Rinse Your Mouth:After consuming staining foods or drinks, rinse your mouth with water to help reduce the impact of stains.

What are the different types of teeth discoloration?
Teeth discoloration can be categorized into two main types: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic discoloration occurs on the tooth's outer surface and is often caused by staining foods, beverages, and tobacco use. Intrinsic discoloration originates from within the tooth and can be a result of aging, trauma, or certain medications.
