Professional Teeth Whitening for a Dazzling Smile

Are you worried about the colour of your teeth? Do you feel as if your teeth let you down and make you look older and unhealthier than you actually are? If aging, stains or trauma has sapped the vibrancy out of your smile it can really undermine your confidence.

As dentists we understand the power of a healthy smile, how it can boost a person’s confidence and is utterly infectious at spreading joy. At About Smiles we are all about making our patients look and feel great. Good oral health, and the subsequent appearance associated with good oral health, plays a big role in that overall feeling of wellbeing. So when you’re considering professional teeth whitening, having it performed by a dedicated healthcare provider will go a long way towards getting the younger, healthier smile you desire.

Stains and Getting Rid of Them

Stained teeth are caused by extrinsic stains (stains on the surface of your teeth) and intrinsic stains (stains within your dentin and enamel’s micro-cracks). Good oral hygiene will remove many extrinsic stains, but will leave behind the dark pigments that are deeper in the structure of your teeth.

To effectively remove stubborn intrinsic stains requires a professional teeth whitening solution. A dentist applied treatment makes this possible for two reasons: a higher concentration of whitening agent is used and the application trays are specifically made to fit your teeth, meaning better contact between the agent and your teeth.

Our Treatment Options

From our top-of-the-line dental clinics in Chatswood, Zetland and Eastgardens, we offer two straightforward and affordable professional teeth whitening options: the POLA Office+ System (in-chair whitening) and POLA Day (at home whitening kit). With each we tailor the procedure to suit your individual requirements and ensure safety and comfort.

 

POLA Office+ “The World’s Fastest Whitening System, Visibly Whiter Teeth in Just 30 Minutes”

This method starts with an initial in-the-chair treatment, which safely whitens teeth in 30 minutes at a neutral pH to protect your teeth and gum. At About Smiles, we follow this procedure with a simple home routine for 7-14 consecutive nights to ensure the best treatment outcome. The end result is a smile that is four to seven shades lighter, which is far better than what is achievable with most other procedures. We also recommend that you have a hygiene appointment prior to undergoing this treatment to ensure a clean, quality result.

POLA Office+ is an Australian brand with unique formulation that releases the active ingredients (peroxide ions) fast and effectively.

 

POLA Day “Whiter. Brighter. You.”

This carefully supervised take home option involves using custom-fitted trays and application syringes of whitening gel. After 5 to 7 days results should become obvious. This is a very cost effective, safe and simple method to achieve a brighter smile.

POLA Day is a neutral pH teeth whitening formulation that can achieve your desired whitening effect in as little as 30 minutes a day. POLA Day contains fluoride to remineralise your teeth and protect them against tooth sensitivity. Advantages include:

  • Fluoride releasing - POLA Day contains fluoride, which remineralises the tooth surface to protect against tooth sensitivity.
  • Safe and convenient - POLA Day’s unique, high water content formulation has a neutral pH and high viscosity to protect your gums during treatment. The tacky feel remains securely in place throughout the procedure.
  • Effective whitening - Your desired whitening effect can be achieved in as little as 30 minutes a day, making POLA Day an ideal choice for all - effective and affordable!
