We whiten teeth with the recommended and, in our opinion, the best on the market lamp Beyond Polus Advanced. This method is completely safe for the patient. It does no damage to the teeth structure. Teeth whitening takes place by oxidising discolourations on the enamel surface with a special gel. In the next step, the gel is activated by the light of the BEYOND accelerator. One visit is enough to get the anticipated Hollywood smile! The effect is immediate - to obtain it we need 30 to 60 minutes.
Who can undergo the whitening treatment with the BEYOND accelerator?
The system generally works in patients with discolourations caused by eating colourful, teeth-staining foods and drinking such beverages as well as in people with teeth discoloured due to age. Contraindications to this treatment include age under 16, pregnancy, lactation, gum diseases and taking certain medications. Do not forget to inform your dentist about these circumstances before the treatment.
What effects can be obtained with this treatment?
Our patients usually find the effects stunning, but they mainly depend on the intensity, type and source of discolourations. In most patients, a change in the teeth colour from 2 to 8 shades during one visit can be expected. It is a visible difference which our patients find satisfactory almost to 100%.
Is whitening effective for crowns and veneers?
This procedure can whiten only natural teeth and will certainly not change the colour of the patient's veneers or composite fillings. However, even teeth after root canal treatment or teeth which are dead for other reasons can be whitened independently of the whitening of the rest of the teeth. How? Such dead tooth is re-opened and a whitening substance is introduced inside. Then a dressing is applied. After a few days, the procedure is repeated until satisfactory results are achieved. Next the tooth is filled again.
How long does the whitening effect last?
It is a very individual matter. It depends mostly on the diet, lifestyle and hygiene. The effects may last up to three years. Patients who regularly drink coffee, eat teeth-staining foods and drink such beverages should use treatments that help to maintain the whitening effect. Helpful are also special toothpastes and mouthwashes. Following the instructions will allow you to keep your white smile even for several years!
Is whitening with a whitening accelerator safe?
A treatment with a Beyond lamp is 100% safe. The device has an advanced light filtration system and therefore does not emit heat and UV radiation. We guarantee your comfort and safety while also reducing to the minimum the risk of teeth hypersensitivity during and after the procedure.
How to take care of a white smile after the procedure?
The so-called white diet is recommended for at least 48 hours after the procedure. However, the best results are seen in patients who follow the white diet from 1 to 2 weeks. In this period, the patient should abstain from smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee, tea, juices, red wine and other colourful beverages or eating teeth-staining meals. Dyed toothpastes and mouthwashes should also be avoided.
Does whitening damage the teeth?
It is a myth! Whitening is completely safe for teeth - provided that it is supervised by a doctor. Numerous recent scientific researches confirm it. A properly performed procedure, customised to the patient's situation, eliminates the possibility of complications.
