Take-Home Teeth Whitening – How Does it Work?

Our Pola take-home teeth whitening treatments are a great solution if you don’t want to whiten your teeth at the dentist or if your teeth are sensitive or weaker. You’ll be given a kit that contains custom-fit teeth whitening trays and a series of syringes filled with the bleaching gel. The trays are filled with the bleaching gel and are worn over the teeth to keep the bleach in close contact with the tooth enamel.

Poladay and Polanight are convenient, safe, and effective take-home teeth whitening treatments, which are all about convenience.

Patients can achieve their desired level of whiteness by wearing their teeth whitening trays for 30 minutes twice a day or longer overnight as they sleep.

The Pola formula contains a high volume of water and has a neutral Ph and high viscosity which protects the gums during treatment. It was actually discovered to whiten teeth as a side effect of originally being a safe gum treatment.

Patients can expect to see results within 5 to 14 days.

Chairside Teeth Whitening

Not everyone wants to wait for 14 days to unleash their new white smile on the world and they don’t have to when they choose in-chair teeth whitening in Richmond. Within a few hours, patients can have whiter brighter teeth and a smile to be proud of.

Our dentist starts by covering the lips and gums so that only the teeth are exposed. The teeth whitening gel is carefully applied and depending on the brand used, an intense LED light may be used to speed up the whitening process. The gel is washed off and the level of whiteness checked. Our experienced team will repeat the process until your teeth have achieved their desired whiteness. This is most suitable for patients with strong teeth and no sensitivity, gum issues or fracture and wear lines on their teeth.

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening improves the appearance of a dull, stained smile and can make you feel more confident. It could even improve your oral health since you may find you brush and floss more regularly to help keep your gleaming white smile for longer.
Can anyone have teeth whitening treatments?
Teeth whitening isn’t suitable for everyone which is why we ask patients to have a comprehensive dental check-up prior to in-chair or take-home whitening. Dental veneers may be a better option for patients with deep intrinsic staining.
How long does teeth whitening last?
It depends on the individual and whether or not you smoke, or drink pigmented beverages such as tea, coffee, and red wine. Professional cleaning 2 or 3 times a year can help your teeth to remain whiter.
