People want to improve the appearance of their smiles for a variety of reasons. One area of improvement may be discoloration of the teeth due to food, drinks, smoking, and other factors.
There are several whitening solutions that your or a dentist could use, including whitening strips, whitening toothpastes, and in-office bleaching. The gel solutions that compose PolaDay® and PolaNight® take-home whitening products, however, tend to achieve successful whitening results with reduced sensitivity and increased comfort for the patient. Dr. Vela and Dr. Loftin are always looking out for patient comfort while obtaining optimal results, so Vela Loftin Dental Center offers PolaDay® and PolaNight® for your cosmetic dental needs.
Reduced Sensitivity is Number One!
If you’ve tried other whitening solutions, you may have already experienced a feeling of sensitivity after brightening your smile. This sensitivity is caused by the solution of the whitening product lifting stains off of your teeth. PolaDay® and PolaNight® both use a solution that incorporates special additives which enhance remineralization in order to assist with reducing sensitivity; the pH neutrality of the gel also means that PolaDay® and PolaNight® do not have an acidic nature which could harm the enamel. The high water content and thick nature of the gel both reduce dehydration of the enamel as well, thereby reducing sensitivity.
No Goopy Mess
Occasionally, patients will find that their whitening gel is difficult to use. Gels can ooze out of the bite trays on your teeth, limiting your teeth’s exposure to the whitening solution and creating a mess. PolaDay® gel is easily placed into the tray and stays there for the entire process. The thickness of the gel is the reason it can remain securely on your teeth. This is important in order to receive proper coverage of the solution over your teeth for an even whitening of each tooth.
The taste of the whitening gel may seem like a minor issue, but this mild convenience is nonetheless a source of patient satisfaction. The PolaDay® and PolaNight® gel have a spearmint flavor that leaves your mouth feeling fresh for quite a while.
