Teeth Whitening for the whitest smiles in Oakleigh


Have you noticed that your teeth have lost their sparkle? Are your teeth looking slightly yellow, discoloured or stained? Have you tried using a whitening toothpaste with little to no effect? A bright, white smile can really lift a person’s self confidence but if you enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of red wine, then you probably have built up discolouration of your enamel. Visit us at Station Square Dental for a consultation and advice on the right cosmetic whitening solution for you.  We will soon have you smiling with confidence as you achieve your whitest smile, quickly, safely and effectively.

Why go to a dentist for teeth whitening?

Even though teeth bleaching is considered a cosmetic treatment, never forget that whitening your teeth is a form of dentistry, so you should always see a professional.  Before performing any teeth whitening treatment, it’s important to have a dental consultation to check the health or your teeth and gums.  If you have any chipped enamel, holes in teeth, or gum disease, or any oral health issues, these should be resolved prior to whitening or it may result in inconsistent results or increased pain or sensitivity.

There are many whitening kits available over the counter in shops, but sometimes the amount of bleach in these products is not enough to actually have much effect. This means you may go to all that expense and effort for little to no gain.

There are also some risks associated with shop bought bleaching kits. The mouthguard in a shop bought whitening kit has not been specifically made for you, it is just a generic one. Because it does not fit perfectly over your teeth, there is a chance the bleach will have direct contact with your gums and the rest of your mouth, which may cause discoloured gums, ulcers, pain and increased sensitivity.

Take Home Pola Teeth Whitening Kits

For professional results, talk to your dentist about the Pola White Teeth Whitening products, a highly advanced and professional take-home teeth whitening system that has been trusted in the dental industry for over ten years.  They use a high viscosity teeth whitening gel that’s pH neutral and has a unique blend of desensitising agents and a high water content to help reduce the symptoms of teeth sensitivity and the formation of plaque.

At-home teeth whitening is convenient because you can apply it when it suits you in the comfort of your own home.  It’s also a great way to maintain that fresh, bright smile over the months and years ahead so stain molecules don’t reoccur.

We generally suggest the POLADAY, POLADAY CP or POLA NIGHT products.  As the name implies, they are either worn during the day or at at night and they are of varying strengths, we will match one suited to your desired results.

Speak to your Station Square Dental dentist about  the best maintenance program for you.

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening is also know as teeth bleaching, the active ingredients are hydrogen peroxide or carbide peroxide which remove stains from the surface of your teeth and can lighten them by several shades. Pola White products work by entering the enamel of the teeth and breaking down the stain molecules which are then naturally removed by saliva.There are two kinds of treatment, one of which is an at home teeth whitening kit and the other is done in the dentist’s chair.

Station Square Dental offers the take home Pola White kit.  Our dentists start by taking an impression of your teeth and they make a specially fitted mouthguard for the gel to be worn in.  The custom made teeth mold fits snugly and evenly to all enamel of your teeth so the whitening gel sits evenly on enamel and does’t spill onto your gums.   At home, you apply the gel for the specified amount of time regularly over the course of a few weeks until you achieve your desired shade.  We are here to answer any questions you may have.

What are the side effects of teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening can sometimes result in increased sensitivity, but this should only be temporary lasting only hours or several days. We can suggest products such as toothpastes to reduce sensitivity It is important to talk to your dentist before proceeding with any kind of teeth whitening, as in some cases it is not advised. After a consultation, our dentists will know if you are safe to proceed immediately with teeth whitening at home.  If you have any questions or concerns about your teeth or gums, please ask your trusted dentist for advice, we are ready to help you achieve your whitest, brightest smile as quickly as possible.
