Pola Day and Pola Night are take home tooth whitening systems. Both are spearmint flavoured, crystal clear gels that contain a unique blend of soothers, conditioners and water to reduce sensitivity.

Questions & Answers

What is tooth whitening?
Tooth whitening is a process known as oxidation. Any discolourations within the tooth will be lightened. Organic materials break down to remove staining and create a whiter brighter smile.

What causes my teeth to discolour?
There are many causes of tooth dicolouration. Some of the most common include the consumption of highly coloured foods (berries) and drinks (coffee, tea, red wine). Antibiotics at a young age, ageing, smoking and trauma can also results in dicolouration.

How long will it last?
Indefinitely. Just simply touch up your teeth a few times per year for one or two days or nights. Without a touch up, your teeth will start to restain by the same things that caused them to discolour in the first place.

Is the treatment safe?
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that bleaching with carbamide or hydrogen perocide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums.

What if I have restorations in my teeth, will these change colour?
Whitening will remove any existing stains on the restorations but will not affect the original shade.

What are the steps involved?
With Pola Day or Pola Night, the whitening gel is placed in your custom tray which fits over your teeth. The whitening gel (either carbamide or hydorgen peroxide) is broken down and oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, and the stains are "dissolved".

What are the side effects?
For the majority of patients, there are none. However, some will experience temporary sensitivity (dull or sharp, sensitivity to hot or cold). This will subside after several hours of ceasing treatment. If sensitivity is present, wear times can be shortened or made less frequent.

How long does it take?
Pola Day and Pola Night take about 5 to 14 days by performing the treatment in the comfort of your own home. With either option, you achieve a whiter, younger looking smile.
