Whiter teeth in time for the holidays in Cleveland
The holiday season is upon us! You know what that means: lots and lots of holiday photos. Are you ready? What about your smile? Is it as white and gorgeous as you would like it to be? If you’re like most people, you notice the color of your teeth more around this time of year and you want to do something about it, and fast!

We totally understand. In fact, we’re in the same boat. Do you know what we do when we want to whiten our teeth for a special event? We take advantage of our in-office whitening system. And we absolutely think you should too.

You may wonder, though: is this is the best option? Is in-office whitening at really worth the investment?

What You Will Experience During Your Whitening Appointments

At, we really care about the products our patients are putting into their bodies. We don’t want to expose them to more chemicals than necessary. That’s why we carefully choose which whitening products we use and recommend. When you come into our office for treatment, here is what you will experience.

The Safe, Non-Toxic, In-Office Whitening Appointment

At your whitening appointment in our office, you will receive the most modern whitening system around. We use the Pola Teeth Whitening System, a 35% hydrogen peroxide bleach solution. If you read our last blog, you’ll remember that hydrogen peroxide is the safest, most natural and non-toxic whitening option. Most over-the-counter products use a carbamide peroxide which causes sensitivity when it breaks down after exposure to oxygen. Since hydrogen peroxide is simply water and oxygen it is the best biological option.

The Pola system is great not only because it is made of a hydrogen peroxide solution, but also because it doesn’t require an ultraviolet light. According to an article on, these lights are often used during in-office whitening appointments and cause some sensitivity. The lights are used because their light and heat help “accelerate the reaction rate of the hydrogen peroxide.” While it contributes to faster whitening, it can cause sensitivity. The Pola system doesn’t require a light, though, so it’s a wonderful option for protective whitening.

Other benefits: potassium nitrate, a desensitizing agent, and a gum barrier to prevent the whitening agent from touching and irritating your gum tissue. Also, each appointment only takes about thirty minutes. Come in on your lunch break, take a power nap, and get your teeth radiantly white!

High-Quality, Natural Whitening Follow Up Care At Home

After you’ve reached your desired goal of whiteness, we will send you home with a maintenance system called Opalescence. It contains the hydrogen peroxide whitener, as well as potassium nitrate and fluoride to help decrease any possible sensitivity. While gentle to your teeth, we guarantee you will be able to see significant results. For some examples, check out the results page on

This is an “as needed” whitening system. You only use it when you notice the whiteness of your smile start to diminish.

We make customized whitening trays that prevent the whitening agent from getting onto your gum tissue. The trays also prevent the whitening molecules form escaping, which means the whitening agent will stay active on your teeth for a longer period of time. All you need to do is wear the trays for 30 to 60 minutes a few times over the course of a week or two and you’ll be back to your post-office whitening shade.
