What Is Tooth Polishing?
Usually, people get confused between Teeth Cleaning and Polishing. Hence, they consider both dental procedures as the same. However, there is a fine line of difference between them. If you ask our dentists at Dental Aesthetics that what is Tooth Polishing, here’s what they will answer;
Tooth Polishing is a completely painless finishing procedure that is carried out after teeth cleaning and whitening procedures. We use it to remove stains from the surface of the teeth and usually after dental surgery to get rid of the bacteria first. During a standard Teeth Polishing procedure, we use a small rubber cup and a polishing paste. The paste might be of a fine, medium, or course grade – depending on the dental need. As an alternative, we also use an air and water jet along with a superfine abrasive agent like flour of pumice and calcium carbonate to polish teeth.
Benefits Of Tooth Polishing
Most of the patients visiting us at Dental Aesthetics ask – What is the most obvious benefit of getting our teeth polished? Well, a BIG BRIGHT SMILE is an answer!
However, to a certain extent, the benefits go beyond just the visual appearance. If you get your teeth polished regularly, there will be no build-up of plaque and tartar around your teeth. They will look clean. Even though you brush and floss teeth regularly, plaque and tartar can build-up and breed bacteria. Thus, causing bad breath and other dental issues.
If you neglect all these signs, they can lead to a tooth infection and cavity in the long run. Hence, we suggest, get your teeth polished twice a year at our dental clinic in DHA, Lahore. Rest assured, you will not have to worry about toothache and swollen gums. Plus, the cherry on top – our Teeth Polishing Price is also very reasonable, hence, everyone can afford the procedure.
The Teeth Scaling Procedure
Currently, at Dental Aesthetics, we carry out Teeth Polishing procedures in 2 steps.
First, we use a soft rubber cup with an abrasive paste. Using a rotatory tool, we rotate the cup and press it against the patient’s tooth. This helps in removing the build-up of plaque and stains.
In the second step, we use air and water in combination with glycine or sodium bicarbonate to remove very deep stains. Mostly, we carry out this procedure on patients with more sensitive teeth.
Teeth Polishing After Teeth Scaling
Over time, plaque, tartar, and calculus can build-up on your teeth. Talking of plaque, it is a sticky and yellow film that breeds bacteria. In a day or two, the plaque transforms into hard calculus or tartar. Unfortunately, once they are build-up, regular brushing and flossing cannot help you remove calculus or tartar.
Getting your teeth scaled is the only way you can remove the hard deposits causing bad breath and other oral problems too. Even though Teeth Polishing does remove stains, finishes your teeth, and makes them shine, it is just a finishing procedure. Precise enough, just like women end off their makeup with a makeup setting spray. Thats what tooth polishing does with your tooth scaling procedure.Hence, it is not quite necessary that only getting your teeth polished will remove bacteria too from the roots along with removing stains. Polishing teeth after getting them scaled, does help in removing it all, whether it’s the stains or the bacteria.
Dr. Shahzad Mirza of Dental Aesthetics suggests everyone to undergo the Teeth Polishing procedure. Even regular brushing and flossing teeth does not help much in preventing tartar from building up.

Difference Between Teeth Polishing And Whitening?
Usually, patients are confused between Teeth Polishing and whitening. Let us clear it out today before you book with us for dental treatment. At Dental Aesthetics, our cosmetic dentists carry our Teeth Whitening procedure by applying a gel on the patient’s teeth. The gel contains peroxide and is applied to the teeth after placing a protective shield on the gums.
Depending on the patient’s dental health, our dentists might also use a laser to intensify the bleaching action of the teeth whitening gel. Talking of the procedure’s duration and frequency we use for whitening, it all depends on how deeply your teeth are stained and discolored.
On the other hand, Teeth Polishing is a mechanical procedure that we carry out with a rubber cup filled with paste or a water-air jet, which we have talked about before.
Is Teeth Polishing Worth It?
While getting your teeth scaled is essential for removing deposits and keeping teeth healthy, Teeth Polishing is what gives teeth the final look. Well, the opinions are divided, and one of the frequent questions we get asked is – Is polishing teeth worth it?
Some dentists in Pakistan believe that the oral health Benefits of Tooth Polishing are not very convincing. However, at Dental Aesthetics, we believe that getting teeth polished is beneficial for your overall oral health. But if the procedure if the Teeth Polishing procedure is not carried out by dental professionals, it can remove the protective tooth enamel and cause dental sensitivity.
Hence, to give your teeth a smooth and bright look, our professional cosmetic dentists will first check your teeth. Depending on your teeth health, they will then advise if Teeth Polishing is your dental solution or you need to undergo another treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects Of Teeth Polishing?
Every dental procedure can have a side effect if not done properly. For instance, overdoing Teeth Scaling can damage the tooth enamel and the gums too. Usually, the side effects of Teeth Polishing vary. They depend on how the dentist carries out the procedure and the health of the patient’s teeth and gums. Keeping in mind that if polishing is not done right, it can affect your teeth enamel. Even though the enamel does re-grow after some time, but still, people with sensitive teeth need to be careful.
The cosmetic dentists at Dental Aesthetics understand that the Benefits of Tooth Polishing can only be achieved if the procedure is carried out properly. Hence, they do not go ahead with the procedure without a complete dental checkup to find out pre-existing conditions.
