Teeth Whitening

At Carlton Dental Care we use the Pola Teeth Whitening System from SDI. Patients who have used the system are often pleased to hear that we use a product made right here in Melbourne.

After an important examination, we can determine if whitening is a suitable and safe process for you. Using our intra-oral camera we take before and after photos to track your progress with whitening.

Drinking coffee and wine or smoking are not absolute “no-no’s” when bleaching. However,  these habits can work against what you are trying to achieve. It is also recommended that patients have a good scale and clean before starting.

Whether it’s for a wedding, job interview, greater self-esteem or to disguise other existing dental work,  at-home whitening could be a great solution for you.

A common finding is that over-the-counter whitening products do not produce visible improvement in tooth shade. Teeth whitening is best achieved using proper agents made by dental companies.

These agents are usually either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.

At-home whitening kits have been used safely for over twenty years.
