At Good Choice Dental, we are pleased to offer our patients a safe and affordable teeth whitening cost that produces results. We make use of the Pola professional teeth whitening system, because of its proven track record. Let’s take a closer look at the process and why it’s worth paying more for quality.
Advances in modern dentistry have made it possible for people to brighten their smiles quickly and effectively. With cheaper teeth whitening systems, however, this process is not always safe – or effective. When we use the Pola system, we know that our patients’ safety is taken care of, and that we can confidently offer you whitening treatments up to eight shades brighter.
When you have your teeth whitened at Good Choice Dental you can expect
Safety comes first
Professional teeth whitening in your dentist’s chair gives you the added advantage of a professional over-seeing your treatment. This means you can look forward to an even, natural-looking smile.
Pola’s whitening bleach has been formulated to desensitise your teeth and protect your soft tissue against side effects commonly experienced with other whitening products – like burning, itching and irritation.
Quick results matter
Pola offers whitening results in as little as thirty minutes, something we know is very important to our busy patients. Finding the time for whitening has never been easier – a quick trip to our Burwood practice can be achieved in your lunch hour. This quick turn-around in results in due to the fact that Pola Office works 33% faster than other professional whitening products on the market.
Why Cheap Teeth Bleaching Systems Aren’t Worth The Effort
You might be tempted to try a teeth whitening kit or over-the-counter whitening gel the next time you’re out shopping, but a word on that first:
Only your dentist is authorised to administer whitening products that contain more than 6% hydrogen peroxide, and over-the-counter products are usually quite weak. You won’t get the same results as you would from a professional treatment and if the product contains an abrasive or acidic substance, it may damage your tooth enamel.
The Difference That Professional Whitening Makes
Remember that intrinsic staining takes place inside your dentin, below your tooth enamel, so you need a high strength bleaching agent that can penetrate that enamel effectively and safely.
Many cheaper brands that claim to whiten can cause damage and may result in tooth sensitivity if they are not specially formulated to provide protection.
How Much Does Teeth Bleaching Cost?
A safe, professional teeth whitening treatment is highly recommended because it produces the best short, medium and long term results. The cost of your whitening treatment will depend on a number of variables that include
Pre-whitening cleaning and treatment
In order to ensure a safe and effective procedure, you should have a dental check up and clean before you whiten.
This will ensure that your teeth are not weakened by decay, and that your enamel is strong enough for the bleach.
Your dentist will also clean and polish your teeth to make the whitening easier and smoother. If you need any fillings done, the cost of these should be factored in.
The brand of whitening system
There are lots of different whitening systems on the market and some are cheaper than others. At Good Choice Dental we know that Pola whitening offers the best value for money and results, while offering our patients a safe whitening experience.
Follow up treatments
Your dentist may offer you post-treatment pop ups as part of your treatment, enabling you to extend your bright white smile for longer. Of course, quitting smoking and drinking dark beverages that cause stains will help you retain your whitened smile.
On average, whitening from a reputable system can last for one to three years.
The True Cost Of Cheap Teeth Whitening
Cheap whitening products can cause long term damage to tooth enamel. Their results may not last as long, or they may brighten the teeth to an unnatural colour. Pola’s shade guide allows your dental practitioner to identify a natural looking shade that suits you, and recommend a treatment plan that helps you achieve it.
Cheap whitening treatments will not last as long and will require more maintenance going forward.
Will My Health Insurance Cover The Cost Of Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic procedure and will need to be paid directly to your practitioner.
