Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening in Crayford, we'd love to help

Pola night tooth whitening is available for use in the surgery or as a handy ‘home-use’ kit.

Our in-surgery whitening by Pola Night is powerful and will give visible results in a much quicker time. In fact, Pola Office + is one of the world’s fastest whitening treatments, dramatically lightening the enamel in as little as 30 minutes. Often, a UV light is not even necessary to help speed up the process.

Who is this type of whitening suitable for?

This type of treatment is ideal for those with heavy staining or who would prefer the convenience of one appointment rather than having to take a kit home with them.

With Pola Office we can fully protect your gums before treatment with a flexible and easily placed barrier. One thin layer of bleach is all that is required for noticeable results. Thanks to the composition of the gel it stays in place on your teeth for maximum effect. As an added bonus, the unique whitening bleach contains potassium nitrate, which actually helps to prevent increased tooth sensitivity, a common side-effect in many other types of treatment.

Home kit option

If you would prefer a home kit, for use at your own convenience, we can provide Pola day or Pola night. Using impressions of your teeth we will manufacture special trays for the top and bottom teeth. Full instructions will be given when you take your product away from the practice. Simply wear your trays with the bleaching gel for between 15 and 30 minutes a day.

It can take up to 2 weeks for full effect but many patients can see a difference within just a few days.

Whats does the gel taste like?

The pleasant tasting spearmint flavoured gels contain a unique formula which helps to hydrate, soothe and condition your tooth enamel, decreasing sensitivity and plaque build-up. In fact, it’s highly likely your teeth will feel healthier and stronger after treatment.

Thanks to the thickness of the gel you can be assured that every tooth is fully and evenly covered.

ZOOM! Teeth Whitening Question and Answers

Sensitive teeth can be a common side effect of tooth whitening. To help prevent this, all Philips Zoom! whitening gels contain special ingredients which are proven to help reduce sensitivity, protect enamel and improve the lustre of teeth for a brighter smile.
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums. Always ensure that products are EU compliant.
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist will be able to advise you on whether you are a good candidate for whitening and they can also ensure that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula. Philips Zoom! whitening products contain 2 mild desensitising agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), which are proven to reduce sensitivity.
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks, or through natural ageing, your teeth may become discoloured again. Maintenance whitening at home can help combat recurring discolouration. Philips Zoom! whitening products also include ACP, which has been shown to reduce whitening fadeback.
Over time, our tooth enamel starts to discolour. Unfortunately, this is a natural part of the ageing process, which will happen to all of us. Tooth whitening is one of the most effective ways to remove this staining, leaving you with a fresher, brighter looking smile. Teeth can be stained in a number of ways. Often it’s simply down to genetics and our general lifestyle and diet. Our regular consumption of dark food and drink (tea, coffee, coke, berries etc) contributes significantly, as do activities such as smoking, which can make the teeth look yellow.  Sometimes, our teeth can change colour as the result of damage or previous dental work (root canals) while certain long-term medications can also darken the teeth over time. As stains appear on the inside and outside of the teeth, no matter how well you brush, or how often you visit the hygienist, it’s impossible to stop this gradual change. With Philips Zoom! tooth whitening, available at Ark-G Dental & Cosmetic Centre, a bright and confident smile is now more readily available and affordable for everyone. Our dentists can restore the natural whiteness of your teeth easily, comfortably and with the utmost convenience. Don’t feel the need to hide your teeth any longer, instead show off a confident and radiant smile! Treatment is pain-free and very often, results can be seen from the first application. Your smile is the way you greet the world. But if it’s not as healthy or as white as you would like it to be you may not want to smile. By choosing a whitening treatment from your dentist, either in surgery or for use at home, you can be assured of powerful yet safe results.

So how much does teeth whitening cost?

Teeth whitening can start from as little as £20 per month.

Paying for the treatment couldn’t be easier and we can offer a range of Interest-Free Payment Plans to suit every patient, subject to the amount of time you would like to spread the payment over. This makes it easier than ever to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
