At NSD we use the highly effective pola White Advanced Tooth Whitening System.
There are multiple types of tooth whitening solutions available. There are essentially three categories that these fit into including pharmacy available products, Take Home (from dentist) packages and In-dentist clinic applied solutions. The main difference between these categories of products is the amount of hydrogen peroxide, which is the active ingredient they contain. Carbamide peroxide breaks down into hydrogen peroxide over a period of time, but at a lesser strength of active ingredients. Products can range from as little as 3%( Pharmacy products) all the way up to 37.5%(In-Dentist products).
It’s best to seek your dentist’s advice on which whitening product is most suitable for you and approximately how many shades whiter you are able to achieve.
pola’s unique formulation dissolves and releases the active whitening ingredient immediately to initiate the whitening process. By breaking down and releasing the peroxide ions fast, pola’s whitening process is triggered and does not require UV light therapy to accelerate the process.
Protecting your teeth and gums:
polaoffice+ is designed to protect your sensitive dental nerves and nerve endings with pola Desensitising Technology (PDT). The combination of neutral pH and PDT reduces the likelihood of gum irritation, burning, pain or long-term gum damage.
Prior to whitening with polaoffice+, a gingival barrier is applied to protect gums.
polaoffice+ requires 1 x 30 minute visit to your dentist to achieve whiter teeth. The ease and convenience of polaoffice+ PDT enables you to achieve whiter teeth while protecting your teeth and gums.
polaoffice+ only requires a thin layer to be applied and can be easily cleared away, which minimizes your total time at the dentist to 30 minutes.
In-dentist whitening can brighten your smile up to 8 shades lighter. That’s 6 shades lighter than store bought whitening products.
Take Home Whitening kits:
pola Day and pola Night are Take Home whitening products that contain fluoride which remineralizes the tooth surface to protect against tooth sensitivity.
The unique, high water content formulation has a neutral pH and high viscosity to protect your gums during treatment. Can be used in the comfort of your home for short intervals during the day or overnight.
The desired whitening effect can be achieved in as little as 15mins or can be conveniently applied overnight. Products vary in the amount of active ingredient present and therefore different durations required to apply them.
