Some teeth whitening products are produced by companies with limited dental experience and unclear manufacturing origins. Most online tooth whitening systems only use sodium bicarbonate as the active whitening ingredient. This weaker formula can only treat mild surface stains.
Pola is produced by SDI, an Australian company that has 50 years experience in oral health. Pola’s scientific formula has been refined over many decades to ensure the best whitening result.
Pola is manufactured in our Australian manufacturing plant in Victoria. Our Pola products have been used by millions of people across over 100 countries.
With in-clinic whitening, results can be seen in just 30 minutes. A Pola take home whitening system can take approximately 5 – 14 days to complete, depending on the Pola formulation. Stronger formulations work faster, but may cause short term sensativity.
Your Pola clinician will work with you to select the best Pola option for your oral health needs.
Many teeth whitening manufacturers make claims of ‘5 shades’ whiter or similar. However, this can be misleading as it depends on the original shade of your teeth and the current staining on your teeth. Pola is formulated to remove the toughest stains from your teeth and return your teeth to their whitest natural colour.
Your lifestyle is the greatest influence on your oral health. If you are an avid drinker of coffee, wine and/or soft drinks, your teeth whitening will diminish more quickly than someone who prefers water. Typically, your whitening will be at its best for the first 6 months, before slowly diminishing. Pola Luminate is a perfect instant touch up solution at anytime.
Teeth whitening will remove existing stains on your restorations and veneers. It will not alter their original shade.
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that teeth whitening with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide is safe if performed under the guidance and supervision of a trained dentist.
A small minority of people may experience short term teeth sensitivity during the whitening process. This sensitivity will subside quickly and does not lead to tooth or gum problems.
Your dentist will assist you in recording your original tooth shade, by referring to a universal tooth shade chart. For future verification purposes, we recommend you also take a photo with this shade physically beside your teeth.
Once your teeth whitening is complete, simply match up the shade guide to your new whiter teeth to measure results.
While no studies have been conducted on potential risks for pregnant women, it is not recommended to use tooth whitening products during pregnancy.
