Option 1
In-Chair Professional Pola Whitening

How does it work?
For a brighter, whiter smile without the wait, opt for Pola, an in-office, chemically activated whitening treatment that offers results in about an hour.  Pola features a unique, chemically activated formula that allows your dentist to whiten your teeth without the heat or ultraviolet rays of light.  Pola also contains ptassium nitrate and fluoride, which help to improve oral health by stregthening enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and offering increased cavity pevention.  

Is it safe?
Yes. Pola offers results in about an hour.  The dentist supervised, in-office procedure is safe and effective and offers a brighter, whiter smile after just one appointment.  We would not recommend tooth whitening for children under 18 years of age and pregnant or lactating women. 

When will I see results?
In just over an hour!  Pola whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Pola in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening, makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.

How do I keep my smile white?
By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing and brushing twice daily. Occasional touch-ups may be necessary depending on your needs.


Option 2
Polar White Customized Home Tray

How does it work?
Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth that will allow for custom trays to be made for your bleaching procedure. The Polar white gel is placed in thin, comfortable trays and fitted over your teeth. As you whiten your teeth, carbamide peroxide is broken down and oxygen enters the enamel and dentine. This bleaches out the discolored areas. The structure of the tooth is not changed. The colour of the tooth is simply made lighter.

Is It Safe?
Whitening your teeth, under the supervision of your dentist, has been proven safe in clinical studies over a period of many years. The primary ingredient in Polar white gel is carbamide peroxide, which has been safely used to brighten the smiles of millions of people worldwide.

When will I see results?
Results are often seen after one night. Optimum natural whiteness usually occurs when the process is continued for a week to 10 days. Your dentist will go over what you can expect for your individual situation.

How do I keep my smile white?
After you have the white smile you’ve long desired, it’s important to keep it that way. Practice good oral hygiene and always remember to brush after consuming staining food or beverages.

How does it work?
Whitening your teeth has never been easier.  Trèswhite’s innovative preloaded whitening trays are simply inserted onto your teeth for a comfortable fit. The thin membrane tray adheres to the teeth and remains securely in place for the 60 minute wear time. Yes, only 60 minutes, once a day. It’s that easy.

Is It Safe?
Trèswhite is a perfectly safe way to whiten your teeth. In fact, Trèswhite contains both potassium nitrate and fluoride which has been proven to prevent cavities and remineralize the teeth.

When will I see results?
Trèswhite is the most powerful take-home product available. Because it contains such a high concentration of peroxide, results are achieved rapidly. Some people see results in as little as one day. Now that’s fast.

How do I keep my smile?
After you have the white smile you’ve long desired, it’s important to keep it that way. Practice good oral hygiene and always remember to brush after consuming staining food or beverages.

*A professional teeth cleaning and dental exam is recommended prior to having your teeth whitened.

More Teeth Whitening information..

Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.

The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco.

Food particles are naturally attracted to a tooth's enamel by a certain protein. Products like coffee and tea, berries and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances.

One type of stain-caused by traumatic injuries, medications and fluorosis-actually begins inside the tooth; brushing and flossing don't help. Another type of stain-one that can be more easily attached by brushing, flossing and rinsing-is caused by external factors such as foods.

More and more people today are choosing tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and tobacco stains.

Whitening agents actually change the color of your teeth, but only are effective on certain types of stains. For example, bleaching agents have a difficult time removing brownish or grayish stains. These products also are not as effective on pitted or badly discolored teeth, or on restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding and tooth-colored fillings (porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be more appropriate in this case).
