At Shine Bright Dental, we offer our patients three convenient ways to have whiter and brighter teeth.
The main difference between our whitening treatments is the time the whitening process takes, and this depends on the amount of hydrogen peroxide in the products, which can be from 6% to 37.5%.
The solutions we offer are safer and achieve better results than the whitening products you may have seen in shops or on social media.
The Shine Bright Dental approach
We look forward to welcoming you to our practice, where you can chat to one of our dentists about the results you can expect. They will suggest the best whitening option for your teeth, according to the time you have and your budget. Your dentist can also treat sensitivity — please let us know if this is one of your concerns.
At Shine Bright Dental, we always recommend you visit us for a thorough check-up and clean appointment prior to undergoing any form of whitening treatment. There are two reasons for this:
1. We want to check for any active areas of decay on your teeth prior to whitening. Finding and treating any tooth decay beforehand will ensure the whitening treatment doesn’t exacerbate any areas of decay and cause pain.
2. The whitening ingredients will work more effectively on professionally cleaned teeth than on teeth that have a build-up of tartar or calculus. By having a professional clean first, you’ll get the best whitening result.
If you’re busy and are looking to have an instantly brighter smile in time for a special occasion or event, in-chair whitening may be the best whitening option for you.
At Shine Bright Dental we use Pola Office+ which uses the strongest hydrogen peroxide dosage of 37.5% to whiten your teeth in as little as one hour.
The beauty of this whitening system is that it does not require the use of a UV light, which often can lead to increased tooth sensitivity.
During your in-chair whitening appointment, your dentist will first apply a gingival barrier to protect your gums. They will then apply a hydrogen peroxide solution to your teeth at regular intervals to give you whiter teeth faster.
Your trusted dentist is a trained professional who will safely whiten your teeth. So, sit back and relax while you have your teeth professionally whitened by one of our dentists at our modern and comfortable practice.
If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, custom-made take home whitening trays may be the best option for you. This option will gradually (and safely) whiten your teeth in as little as 30 minutes a day.
At Shine Bright Dental, we use PolaDay whitening syringes that contain fluoride to remineralise your teeth and protect them against sensitivity.
Before you start your at-home teeth whitening treatment, you’ll have an appointment with one of our dentists. They’ll take impressions of your teeth and custom-fit the trays. We can do this after your regular check-up and clean or as a separate appointment. The trays will be ready one week later and we’ll see you again to check the fit and to explain how to use the whitening products at home.
This option is also great for our patients who would like to continue to keep their smile bright after in-chair whitening or who would like to whiten their teeth at home on an ongoing basis.
If you’ve already had in-chair whitening or have fairly white teeth to begin with, try our Pola Luminate whitening pen.
Pola Luminate is a quick and easy to use on-the-go whitening solution because you don’t need to wait for whitening trays to be made. Pola Luminate contains 6% hydrogen peroxide so you can apply it whenever you’d like. It’s discreet — no-one will notice you’re whitening your teeth! Pola Luminate is the perfect handbag essential!
