Teeth Whitening – Why Is It Needed?
Few of us are fortunate enough to be able to maintain gleaming white teeth all our lives. Unfortunately, over time our teeth become stained by lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking coffee and tea, and our love for red wine and highly pigmented foods such as curries. Teeth also become darker as we age and the tooth enamel thins. This reveals the dark colour of the dentin below, making teeth look darker.
Professional teeth whitening, also referred to as teeth bleaching, removes stains and discolouration and is an ideal treatment if you have a special event coming up, such as a wedding.
What’s The Procedure For Teeth Whitening Treatment?
Patients are required to attend an initial consultation before proceeding with the teeth whitening procedure. This is so that our Dentist can assess your oral health to see whether teeth whitening is a safe and suitable treatment for you. Dental Veneers also offer an excellent alternative for Teeth Whitening
If any signs of gum disease or tooth decay are detected, these will need to be addressed before exposing teeth and gums to the hydrogen peroxide contained in the bleaching gel. Doing so when teeth are in less than perfect condition may cause irritation and/or sensitivity.
Pola Night Teeth Whitening
At Beyond Dental Care, we offer take-home whitening kits from Pola Night. This advanced dental whitening treatment is safe, effective, and convenient as it enables you to whiten your teeth in the convenience of your home at a time that suits you.
Before commencing Pola Night Teeth Whitening, Patients will be issued custom whitening trays that fit snugly over their teeth so that the bleaching gel reaches and covers each tooth. The trays are filled with the whitening gel according to the instructions given to you by your Dentist, and are worn over the teeth like a mouthguard. You can opt to wear your trays for 90 minutes during the day or overnight as you sleep. Noticeable results should be seen within 10-14 days.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?
Patients often ask this question, and the answer depends on the individual. Teeth Whitening is not permanent and people that expose their teeth to beverages and foods that stain will start to see their whiteness fading in just a few months. If you can’t function without that morning coffee, then try drinking a glass of water afterwards to rinse away all traces of coffee, or brush your teeth. With the right care, teeth whitening can last a year or longer before any further treatment is needed.
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
Patients are often anxious that they may experience teeth sensitivity after bleaching their teeth. The good news is that Pola Night utilises a special desensitising technology that protects the nerve ends in the gums guarding against irritation, burning and long-term sensitivity. It’s also available in different strengths, so ask our Dentist to recommend the best one for your teeth and gums. Get in touch today.
