Our focus on dental health has improved in recent years and as more people seek a brighter, whiter smile, the conversation typically turns to teeth whitening Bali because the perception is that the procedure is cheaper in Bali. That may be true at face value, but we also have a number of highly effective teeth whitening systems in Australia.
Why Is Teeth Whitening So Popular?
White teeth are a hallmark of youth and good looks. It also makes us feel so much more confident and willing to smile when we know our teeth are in good condition.
The reason for that is our teeth start to yellow naturally as we get older. In fact, the dentin inside the teeth loses its natural whiteness, which is a very normal part of the ageing process. This yellower look can be enhanced by regular consumption of food and drink that stains too. Lots of coffee, tea, red wine, or tobacco use can add to the yellow effect making us look older than we are.
Why Don’t Whitening Toothpastes Work?
There are plenty of whitening toothpaste brands that are marketed to consumers and some of them work on surface stains to some extent. If you want to whiten the dentin, however, you need a teeth whitening system that can penetrate the surface of your teeth and dissolve the stains effectively.
At Top Health Dental in Ryde, we make use of Pola teeth whitening to help our patients achieve the white smile they desire.
How Does Pola Teeth Whitening Work?
Pola teeth whitening is a bleaching agent that is applied to the surface of your teeth. it penetrates the enamel of the teeth, dissolving the stains without the need for a laser or blue light.
How Do You Prepare For Your Treatment?
Your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, and then do a dental cleaning before you can have whitening products applied. This is important to ensure that you do not have any cavities present. This is essential, even if you are planning to use the take-home kit.
You will discuss your desired shade of white with your dentist before treatment. Remember that your teeth can only be whitened to their natural shade, and not go whiter than that.
What Are The Benefits Of Teeth Whitening?
It works quickly
We use Pola teeth whitening because it is fast-acting and many of our patients leave after a 30-minute treatment, allowing them to get back to the office or go home to do what they need to. Most treatments are completed in between 30 and 60 minutes and most patients only need to have one treatment to achieve their desired results (It’s so much quicker than a visit to Bali!)
It’s gentle on your soft tissues
While some tooth sensitivity is to be expected after a whitening treatment, Pola’s unique formulation ensures that while the product is tough on stains, it is still gentle on your gums. This makes for a more pleasant all-around experience.
It is effective
You can select from eight shades to find the tooth colour that inspires you to feel confident again.
You have the option of a take-home kit
If you do not want to or do not have the time to have your whitening treatment done in the chair, we can make a take-home kit available to you. It does work a little slower, but it can still whiten your teeth by up to six shades and most patients are satisfied with their results after using it for just three nights.
The Pola system is relatively affordable and makes it so much easier for local people to have teeth whitening done locally.
How Long Will The Effects Of Your Tooth Whitening Last?
Using whitening toothpaste can help you to prolong the effects of your whitening treatment, although results vary between patients. Regular visits to your dentist will remove surface stains and keep your smile looking whiter for longer.
Your dentist will also chat with you about top-up treatments that will extend the effects of your treatment, and which are recommended approximately every six to 12 months.
