The smile is the focal point of the face. Science has shown us that the first two features someone notices about your face are your eyes and your mouth. An appealing smile says more in an instant than words can ever say.
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 discolouration. Some of the most common include the consumption of highly coloured foods (berries) and drinks (coffee, tea and red wine). Antibiotics at a young age, ageing, smoking and trauma can also result in discolourations.
About Polanight Tooth Whitening
Pola Night is a take home tooth whitening system. It is a spearmint flavored crystal clear gel that contains a unique blend of soothers, conditioners and water to reduce sensitivity. The gel is applied to a custom made tray (similar to a mouth guard), that you wear at night.
Is the treatment safe?
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that bleaching with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums.
How long does it take?
It will take between 5 and 14 days by performing the treatment in your own home, depending on the preference of the shade you are trying to achieve.
