Teeth whitening with Beyond Polus
A bright white smile is a worldwide symbol of health, well-being and attractive appearance. Even very white teeth become darker and discoloured with age Teeth whitening is a wonderful, quick and painless way to have a beautiful smile at any age.
Beyond Polus is one of the most popular teeth whitening methods. Teeth whitening not only makes the teeth brighter, but also removes discolourations that are caused by many factors. Diet, medications, coffee and cigarettes – they all affect the enamel of our teeth. Thanks to the teeth whitening treatment, it is possible to significantly reduce the problem and achieve impressive results. At DENTestetica, we whiten teeth using the modern BEYOND POLUS method.
JAlready during a single treatment, which lasts about one hour, teeth can become 7 shades lighter. Depending on the post-treatment dental care, the effect lasts from 2 to 3 years. The BEYOND POLUS system is completely safe and allows teeth whitening also in patients with sensitive teeth. The final effect depends mainly on the mineral composition of the enamel and stabilizes approximately within a week after the procedure. After this time, it is possible to replace fillings, crowns and other prosthetic structures that do not lighten with whitening and are located in the teeth that show when you smile.

Beyond Polus Teeth Whitening - FAQs
Is teeth whitening painful? How long does the effect last? How long before the wedding should I whiten my teeth? Do I have to prepare for the procedure in any special way? Below is a short and reliable guide to Beyond Polus teeth whitening created by our experts.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
The whitening procedure itself is painless. Occasionally, temporary hypersensitivity to thermal or chemical stimuli occurs during the procedure or shortly afterwards. This is a perfectly normal reaction of healthy, living teeth, which disappears within a few days at the latest. In the case of prolonged discomfort, we perform a fluorescence treatment, which significantly alleviates the pain. Some people may experience tenderness and irritation of the mucous membrane of the mouth and throat. Immediately after the whitening of the area around tooth necks, white spots of 0.5-1 mm diameter can be observed on the gum surface. They disappear after 24 hours, usually after the first brushing of the teeth.
What are the contraindications to teeth whitening?
There are usually no contraindications to teeth whitening. However, there are some situations that completely or temporarily exclude the treatment. Possible contraindications:
- Mechanical tooth damage or cavities. Prior to the teeth whitening procedure, all cavities or lesions must be repaired.
- A large number of fillings, crowns, bridges or veneers on the front teeth. Single fillings or restorations do not prevent the procedure.
- Bad oral hygiene with concomitant inflammation of the gums. It is necessary to change dental care habits and cure the inflammation.
- Allergies or hypersensitivity to oxidizing agents, glycerine and polyacrylic resins.
- Pregnancy and breast-feeding. The procedure can be safely performed shortly after the baby is born and the mother does not breastfeed any longer.
- Under 16 years of age, due to ongoing tooth mineralization. Whitening is possible after the mineralization process has been completed.
How white will my teeth become and how long will the effect last?
With the BEYOND POLUS whitening method, teeth become 7 shades brighter and both minor and larger discolourations disappear. This is currently the most effective way to achieve a beautiful white smile. Individual results depend in each case on the condition of the patient’s teeth, enamel mineralization, diet, habits and proper post-treatment care. Remember that the final colour stabilizes for about a week after the treatment, and the effect lasts from 2 to 3 years.
Does teeth whitening require special preparation?
Prior to teeth whitening, it is recommended to undergo professional cleaning of the teeth. You can do it in our clinic, during the same appointment, or a few weeks in advance. For people who drink a lot of coffee, smoke cigarettes, or have problems with tartar, professional cleaning should be performed immediately prior to whitening. There are no restrictions on eating, drinking coffee or alcohol, or smoking before the procedure. After whitening, it is necessary to adopt the so called “white diet” and follow the doctor’s recommendations.
Will the fillings / crowns / veneers / “non-vital” teeth become brighter?
No, teeth whitening works only on natural teeth and does not change the colour of crowns, veneers or fillings. In the case of “non-vital teeth”, they may get slightly brighter, but they will always be darker than the natural teeth. In this case, your doctor will advise you on the right course of action.
Should possible missing teeth be restored and cavities filled prior to teeth whitening?
Teeth subjected to a whitening procedure must be free from plaque and tartar and, where possible, also cavities. However, if there are cavities in teeth that show when you smile (usually up to the fifth teeth), they are protected for the duration of the procedure and filled afterwards so that their colour can be matched to the whitened teeth.
What food should I eat after teeth whitening?
Immediately after teeth whitening with BEYOND POLUS and for a minimum of 2 days, we recommend the so-called “white diet”. It involves consuming non-coloured foods and refraining from those that may change the colour of the enamel. The list of “banned” products includes, in particular: coffee, tea, red wine, borscht (beetroot soup), soy sauce, dark juices and dark drinks. Refraining from smoking is a must. In order to achieve and maintain a satisfactory post-treatment effect, it is important to follow doctor’s recommendations, maintain oral hygiene, and schedule check-up visits and professional teeth cleaning every six months.
Should I brush my teeth with a special paste after the whitening treatment?
Yes, every DENTestetica patient receives a special whitening toothpaste to be used after the treatment.
Teeth whitening and dental braces
A teeth whitening procedure can be performed after removal of dental braces. The procedure can be performed straightaway after professional cleaning of the teeth.
Teeth whitening before a wedding or another important occasion
Many people want to improve the appearance of their teeth before a wedding or another important celebration. Teeth whitening is a great way to a beautiful and white smile. In order to fully enjoy its effects, it is recommended to undergo the procedure at least two weeks before the big day. This is a safe period of time during which any tooth sensitivity will disappear, the colour will fully stabilize and there will be no more need for keeping the “white diet”.
What is the difference between whitening treatments performed in beauty salons and those at DENTestetica?
When deciding to undergo a teeth whitening treatment, always bear in mind the safety of your teeth. A procedure carried out at a professional dental clinic is a guarantee of proper preparation of the oral cavity, professional care of experienced medical staff (dental hygienists and doctors), reliable advice and recommendations, and good results. BEYOND POLUS is a totally safe teeth whitening method, but unless it is performed with adequate skills, it may cause negative effects for the patient and fail to bring the expected results.
