Tooth Whitening at Oldmachar Dental Care
We offer a professional take home tooth whitening kit using Polanight solution from SDI. It is one of the UK’s leading tooth whitening brands, and has been selected by our dentists for its gentle approach to achieving tooth whitening results.
Polanight offers effective and safe whitening results by using carbamide peroxide, a kinder chemical than the commonly used hydrogen peroxide, and provides an overall gentler whitening process.
Polanight was developed to create a comfortable patient experience and gentle whitening results.
Benefits of Polanight tooth whitening:
- It has a neutral pH level to ensure the full release of the peroxide without jeopardising patient comfort.
- The texture of the gel ensures it can be easily and securely placed into the tray and remains in the tray for the entire procedure.
- It has a pleasant spearmint flavour for a fresh tasting experience.
- The unique blend of soothers, conditioners and high water content assist in reducing sensitivity.
In addition to its tooth whitening properties, Polanight has additional benefits to your dental health. Its unique blend of ingredients and desensitising agents assist in reducing patient sensitivity. The use of special additives in the formulation minimise plaque formation and enhance remineralistion to further reduce sensitivity, and its antibacterial properties can help in tooth recovery.
What’s in the take home kit?
Included in your kit are 2 custom made trays for your upper and lower teeth, a 2 week supply of whitening solution, and instructions. You will also receive a free end of course review to assess your whitening treatment.
What’s the process?
You will require 3 appointments in total to carry out the treatment.
Appointment 1: Firstly, you will be assessed for suitability. Some patients may have symptoms that are not compatible with tooth whitening. If your dentist does not feel tooth whitening is the best solution for your smile, they will be able to advise you on suitable alternatives.
Once your dentist is happy for you to proceed, some dental impressions (moulds) will be taken to make your custom trays. These will fit your teeth perfectly to provide an even and thorough application, and a comfortable fit during the whitening process.
Appointment 2: At your next appointment, you will try in the trays for fit, and be supplied with your Polanight whitening solution. The dentist will explain the whitening procedure, and provide you with instructions to take home. We will then book you in for a review appointment about 2 weeks later to monitor the results.
Appointment 3: This appointment is to assess your results and check your tooth and gum health. It’s important to remember that although this is an at home procedure, it is an industry strength product and should be used under supervision from a dentist.
How long until I see results?
Your first course of treatment is recommended for 14 days. The Polanight solution is used daily, for 90 minutes or can be used overnight. If you have sensitive teeth, you may be recommended to shorten treatment time or take a day or two break in between treatment.
Where can I buy more Polanight solution?
Results can be topped up at a later date by purchasing a Polanight refill from the practice. Polanight can only be purchased from dental professionals.
