Teeth Whitening in Mornington – Effective, Safe and Non-Invasive

Are you looking for safe and effective teeth whitening? Mornington-based Barkly Street Dental Group can help.

Many people tend to shy away from smiling fully or confidently because they feel self-conscious about their teeth. As a result, it’s understandable that more and more people are seeking teeth whitening treatments from their Dentist. Of course, undergoing professional teeth whitening treatment can seem like a time consuming and costly procedure, but in truth, it isn’t.

At Barkly Street Dental Group, we offer a safe, effective and non-invasive cosmetic teeth whitening treatment that you can carry out yourself at home. Known as Pola, it is designed to maintain the health of your tooth enamel, greatly reduce tooth sensitivity, and achieve long-term sustainable results.


Why Pola Teeth Whitening?

The Pola brand is one of the most trusted brands of professional teeth whitening and is recommended by many of the leading dental clinics across the country. It is simple to use as a take-home kit and produces excellent results.

Our team will show you how to use it for optimal results and because each kit is fluoride-releasing, it remineralises the tooth surface as it whitens to protect you from tooth sensitivity. In addition, it is both safe and convenient. Pola whitening systems are designed with a high water content formulation. This results in neutral pH and high viscosity which protects your gums during treatment.

In terms of effectiveness, lighter, brighter teeth are achieved faster when compared with other whitening kits. Patients carrying out teeth whitening can wear their whitening trays during the day for short periods, or overnight while they sleep, depending upon the type of Pola whitening kit they have received. So come to our dental clinic on the Mornington Peninsula and talk to us about Pola teeth whitening and banish those tell-tale stains and discolourations that have been bothering you.

Benefits of Choosing Teeth Whitening Procedures

Teeth whitening procedures and products were developed specifically to cater to patients who wish to improve the appearance of their smile. Not only does the treatment enhance the brightness of the teeth, but it also helps in breaking down tough stains left by the excessive use of tobacco products or the consumption of highly pigmented food and drinks. These are stains that brushing has no effect on. Usually, the only way to eradicate this type of extrinsic teeth staining is by using carefully controlled amounts of professionally prescribed carbamide peroxide gel.

If you are ready to improve your smile, Pola teeth whitening at Mornington-based Barkly Street Dental Group may be the perfect option for you. Call us today on (03) 5975 5355 to book your teeth whitening consultation with one of our experienced dental team members.

FAQs About Teeth Whitening

How long do I have to keep the gel on to get the best results?

Pola teeth whitening products are designed to give the most effective results with minimal wear time. In most cases, it is best applied overnight while you sleep. Full results are usually seen within 5-14 days.

Exactly how white are my teeth going to become?

The results of any whitening treatment depend upon the type and extent of discolouration/staining present on your teeth. Each kit comes with a shade card enabling you to identify the colour of your pre-whitened teeth. Once the whitening procedure is finished, you can check the card again to see the difference. On average, Pola teeth whitening can improve your smile by at least three shades.

Will my teeth keep getting whiter the longer I use the product?

Unfortunately not! Teeth whitening will reach a plateau. This is usually the moment when your teeth have lightened to their true colour. So, once your desired shade has been achieved, or your teeth do not appear to be getting any whiter, then the process should be discontinued. It is important to know that using any teeth whitening product for longer than instructed may have a negative impact on the structure of a tooth. For this reason, it is recommended that apart from referring to the shade guide, you take regular photos to use as a comparison during treatment.

How long will the whitening effect last?

Teeth whitening is not permanent and as such it is impossible to say exactly how long the results of teeth whitening treatment will last. This often depends on lifestyle habits and the types of food or beverages that are consumed. If you avoid smoking and drinking beverages such as tea, coffee, cola and red wine then your newly whitened smile is likely to last for many months. However, if you enjoy a glass of red wine with a meal and need your daily caffeine boost, then your teeth will revert to their former condition far sooner. Maintenance long-term generally requires 2 nights use every 6 months.

How do you use Pola take-home kits at home?

The Pola take-home whitening kit contains custom fitting trays for your upper and lower dental arches, together with tubes of whitening gel. Use the enclosed syringes to squeeze some gel into the trays and then spread it around evenly. The trays are then worn over your teeth for the designated length of time. Once that time is up, simply remove the trays from your mouth and rinse. Continue doing the same process for the recommended number of days in order to reach your shade goal.
