    Product Review: SDI's Pola whitening system offers all the benefits of a whiter smile, with none of the sensitivity

    How SDI’s Pola whitening system helped this patient achieve the bright smile he wanted without the intense sensitivity he’d experienced in the past.

    How SDI’s Pola whitening system helped this patient achieve the bright smile he wanted without the intense sensitivity he’d experienced in the past.

    After looking through family photos, John Zimmer decided it was time to make a change to his smile.

    As he flipped through the photos, he couldn’t help but notice how discolored his teeth were, especially in comparison to the other family members in the photos. It jumped out at him, and he knew it was time for him to try whitening again.

    John had whitened his teeth in the past, but said he had a less than pleasant experience.  While he was happy with the final result, the sensitivity that followed the whitening was intense and left him in no hurry to try again.

    “I had done a little bit of research and found the biggest issue people seem to have with whitening is the sensitivity,” he said. “I didn’t understand what it was until I experienced it myself. I could feel all the teeth in my mouth and it was a really weird intense feeling. That was the No. 1 reason I held back from doing it.”

    Since this experience, which included sensitivity that lasted about a week, John has tried over-the-counter whitening products but just hasn’t been happy with the results. So when his dentist, Dr. Sammy Halabo, told him about SDI’s Pola White whitening system that he’d just started offering, he decided he’d give it another try.

    At the time, he’d been a patient at Dr. Halabo’s for about a year and trusted him when he said he shouldn’t experience as much sensitivity with this product as he did the first time around.

    Dr. Halabo knew about John’s past experience, and even though he also knew that level of sensitivity shouldn’t happen with Pola, he checked on him several times throughout the procedure to make sure he wasn’t experiencing any sensitivity. He checked in with him at every application and even asked about certain teeth to make sure John wasn’t having any problems.

    Not only did he not experience any sensitivity, John found this experience much more relaxing. It took about an hour for the entire procedure, but he was able to walk around or relax and watch television. He wasn’t restricted, and that made a huge difference.

    And John couldn’t have been happier with the final result.

    “I don’t know the numbers and codes but just looking in the mirror it was a much wider change than I had expected,” he said. “It really came out better than I expected. I was expecting a shade or two change and it was much more than that.”

    The result was so good, John’s wife decided to give it a try.

    “She said ‘your teeth are whiter than mine now. That’s not acceptable,’ ” he said, with a laugh. “She was happy, too. She didn’t have any sensitivity either. She’s more skittish about dental procedures than I am but she said it was a really good experience. You know we just have good things to say about it at the end of the day.”

    And unlike how he felt after his last in-office whitening experience, he wouldn’t hesitate to whiten with Pola again and has custom trays he can use at home. He had a comfortable experience and a result that went well beyond his expectations, and would recommend this procedure to anyone looking to brighten their smile without sensitivity.
