Teeth whitening, a whiter brighter you!
What is POLA?

Pola is a tooth whitening system available through your dentist, to safely whiten the discolorations in the enamel of your teeth. Discolorations due to age, coffee, red wine, tobacco, coloured foods, some medications, disease, injury or medical treatments are easily removed with the Pola Tooth Whitening system.

Tooth whitening offers a variety of treatment options to suit your needs and lifestyle.


  1. ‘In office’ system : Uses a high concentrate gel , takes less than 30mins a day (fastest option)
  2. ‘Take home or ‘Night guard’ system: The gel is placed in a fitted tray and worn in the comfort of your home.


Teeth are normally bleached 2-3 shades lighter than the original shade.

Available here at Mentone Dental. Speak to one of our friendly dentist’s about your options.


Will the whitening work on my fillings and crowns?

No. The colour of pre-existing fillings and crowns will not be affected. It is recommended to whiten teeth first to allow the colour time to stabilize for about 2 weeks before a filling or crown is done. Old crowns, veneers and/or fillings will need to be replaced after whitening if they are in your smile line.
