  1. Select appropriate candidate. Note: Not everyone is suitable for in-office whitening e.g. patient with translucent teeth or in the Vita* C group.
  2. Patient must have good overall health.
  3. Seal all exposed roots and restorations.
  4. Inform patient that results are not guaranteed as the removal of stains varies between patients.
  5. Acid etching before treatment is NOT recommended.
  6. Large diameter suction tips are not recommended as they can spread the gel to other areas.
  7. Mild discomfort in teeth during treatment can be a common side effect.
  8. If patient experiences sensitivity during light curing, move the tip slightly away from the tooth. If this doesn’t work, remove gel and rinse the affected area. Assess other possible causes.
  9. Delay any esthetic restorations for 2 to 4 weeks after treatment.
  10. Advise patient not to smoke, consume highly coloured, hot or cold foods or beverages for at least 2 days.
  11. Treat any post-operative sensitivity with a desensitising gel or toothpaste.
  12. Prescribe Pola Day or Pola Night to maintain brightness if desired.
  13. A patient consent form is available for download at


  1. Determine and record pre-operative shade. Please follow this Vita* shade guide arrangement according to degree of brightness: B1•A1•B2•D2•A2•C1•C2•D4•A3•D3•B3•A3.5•B4•C3•A4•C4
  2. Clean teeth with ONLY a flour based pumice.
  3. Place cheek retractors and then cover exposed lip surface with petroleum gel.
  4. Dry teeth and apply Gingival Barrier to both arches, slightly overlapping enamel and interproximal spaces.
  5. Light cure in a fanning motion for 10-20 seconds until Gingival Barrier is cured.
  6. Open powder pot. Take one Pola Office syringe, firmly attach a tip, and carefully pull back plunger to release pressure.
  7. Carefully extrude contents of syringe into the pot.
  8. Immediately mix using a brush applicator until gel is homogeneous.
  9. Apply a thick layer of gel to all teeth undergoing treatment.
  10. Leave gel on for 8 minutes (Optional: a curing light may be used at this stage, please refer to light manufacturer’s recommendations)
  11. Suction off using a surgical aspirator tip.
  12. Complete Steps 9-11 three times (optional 4 times). Note: One pot should only be used for 2 applications or within 20 minutes of mixing.
  13. After the last application, suction all the gel off, then wash and apply suction.
  14. Remove Gingival Barrier by lifting it from one end.


  1. Isolate tooth effectively.
  2. Protect oral mucosa to prevent chemical burns.
  3. Verify adequate endodontic obturation.
  4. Use protective barrier to prevent peroxide from reaching the periodontal ligament.
  5. Avoid acid etching as periodontal ligament irritation may result.
  6. Advise the patient that a whitened non-vital tooth will not look the same as a vital tooth.
  7. Recall patients periodically to examine the whitened teeth (clinically & radiographically).


  1. Determine and record pre-operative shade. Please follow this Vita* shade guide arrangement according to degree of brightness: B1•A1•B2•D2•A2•C1•C2•D4•A3•D3•B3•A3.5•B4•C3•A4•C4
  2. Isolate tooth/teeth undergoing whitening using a rubber dam. Ensure the dam fits tightly at the cervical margin. Note: If a rubber dam is not used, cover approximately half of the adjacent vital teeth with 3-4mm thick layer of Gingival Barrier to insulate from heat discomfort of the curing light. This is done when one tooth is being whitened non-vitally.
  3. Open lingual access to pulp chamber and remove all composite, base material and gutta percha 2-3 mm apical to the CE junction. Place a glass ionomer/zinc phosphate base, at least 1 mm thick to ensure a barrier between the “sealed” root canal and whitening gel.
  4. Place and light cure a thick layer of Gingival Barrier at the gingiva region of the isolated tooth.
  5. Mix the Pola Office gel as instructed in steps 6-8 of the vital tooth bleaching instructions.
  6. Place the Pola Office gel into the opened pulp chamber and onto the labial surface.
  7. Leave gel on/in for 8 min (Optional: curing light may be used at this stage, please refer to light manufactures recommendations)

NOTE: If using a curing light and treating inner and outer surfaces, 2 curing lights can be used (one on each side of tooth) to activate Pola Office.

  1. Suction off the gel.
  2. Repeat steps 6-8 until desired shade is achieved. Note: One pot should only be used for 2 applications or within 20 minutes of mixing.
  3. After the last application, suction and wash the gel off.
  4. Remove Gingival Barrier and re-seal tooth with appropriate restorative.
  5. Record the final shade.
