    BEYOND Dental Whitening is recommended by











    Dual-Arch (Power) Whitening Treatment

    1. Ask the patient to take a seat in the treatment chair and recline the seat back to a 40° angle.

    2. Place the protective eye goggles on the patient.

    3. Use the polishing sand to polish and clean the teeth before the treatment. Add water as necessary.

    4. Ask the patient to rinse his or her mouth.

    5. Apply lip protection cream and insert the BEYOND® FlexiBlue® Cheek Retractor with the tongue guard pointing down.

    6. Stretch the face protection cloth around the outer rims of the cheek retractor and fold the top down under the arms of the cheek retractor.

    7. Insert cotton rolls on either side of the buccal frenum.

    8. Use compressed air to dry the surface of the teeth and gingiva. Holding the syringe at a 45° angle to the tooth surface along the gingival margin, apply a 2-3 mm layer of BEYOND® BlueSeal® Gingival Protection along the gingival margin.

    9. Apply extra lip protection along the inside of the upper and lower lips.

    10. Remove the LED Curing Light from the back of the machine and hold the LED Curing Light 0.5-1 cm away from the gingiva. Press the button on the LED Curing Light to begin curing. Move the device in a circular motion over the gingival area and light cure the gingival protection for twenty to thirty seconds (about two to three seconds per tooth). Use a dental probe tool to check that the gingival protection is fully cured. DO NOT over-cure the gingival protection.

    11. Remove the whitening gel syringe and tip from the vacuum-sealed foil wrapper. Attach the mixing tip to the dual-barrel syringe of whitening gel.

    12. Apply a 2-3 mm layer of BEYOND® II Advanced Formula Whitening Gel to the dry surface of the teeth.

    13. Raise the lamp arm and position the lamp head as close as possible to the surface of the teeth, with the lamp head at a 90° angle to the teeth.

    14. Once the lamp head is positioned, press the START button to begin the first cycle.

    15. Remind the patient that it is safe to swallow his or her saliva during the treatment.

    16. Give the patient the remote control. Instruct the patient that the remote control has PAUSE and RESUME buttons to control the light if he or she needs to stop the treatment any time. A CALL button is also included in case the dentist needs to leave the room during the treatment.

    17. Provide the patient with music or entertainment during the treatment.

    18. At the end of the first cycle, the light will turn off automatically. Use suction to remove the whitening gel. DO NOT rinse with water. Repeat the gel and light application steps two more times for a total of three treatment cycles.

    19. After the final cycle, suction off the whitening gel, remove the gingival protection, cotton rolls, face protection cloth, cheek retractor, and protective eye goggles and ask the patient to rinse his or her mouth with water.



    Pregnant women or persons under the age of sixteen are not recommended to undergo the procedure. Terminate the whitening procedure if any patient reports severe tooth sensitivity and remove all whitening gel before treating with fluoride.

    Within the twenty-four hours after the procedure, patients should avoid colored food and drinks. Use of tobacco products should be limited.

    3. How does Power whitening work to reduce treatment time?
    4. Can the gel be used without a whitening lamp?

    1. How is Polus different from the original BEYOND Whitening Accelerator?

      Like the original BEYOND Whitening Accelerator, the Polus system uses a 150 watt Halogen light source and BEYOND’s unique fiber optic bridge to bring filtered, intense cool light to the face of the light head. The fiber optic unit in the Polus system increases the total fibers to 15,000 fibers, ensuring the light is as intense as possible, while remaining cool at output. The Polus Lightbridge also employs 18 High-intensity LEDs in two arches at the face of the unit to further increase intensity and broaden the output spectrum. The result is the most powerful light output to date, with no UV exposure, and no uncomfortable heat to ensure excellent, uniform results with every patient, while maintaining a quick, comfortable treatment.

    2. Does Polus cause post-treatment sensitivity?

      Post-treatment sensitivity is caused by a number of factors, including treatment time (time gel is on the teethand time of light acceleration applied), strength of the whitening gel, heat generated by the whitening system, and existing tooth condition of the patient. The most common cause of chair side whitening sensitivity is enamel dehydration during the whitening process, which may increase with the use of some whitening systems. With BEYOND power whitening, the treatment time is reduced to just three 10-minute cycles, unlike other systems that apply the gel alone or gel and light together for one hour or more. All BEYOND power whitening systems filter the light output to remove all UV exposure and to produce cool light output, thus reducing heat exposure to the teeth, and limiting dehydration. As a result, dentists using a BEYOND power whitening system generally do not experience the sensitivity issues that plague other systems.

    3. How does Power whitening work to reduce treatment time?

      Power whitening is effective in decreasing the stability of the hydrogen peroxide contained in the whitening gel, forcing the release of oxygen molecules. All BEYOND power whitening gels are formulated in two parts: hydrogen peroxide gel, and light-activated catalyst gel. The two are mixed when dispensed through the static mixing tips included with the dual-barrel syringes.

      When the intense light from the whitening accelerator is applied to the gel on the surface of the teeth, the light-activated catalyst material in the gel formula is excited and the breakdown of the hydrogen peroxide is accelerated.

    4. Can the gel be used without a whitening lamp?

      Yes. The Beyond whitening gel is formulated to break down more rapidly when exposed to light, and to remain stable while contained in the dual-barrel syringes. When mixed while being dispensed and applied to the teeth, the gel begins to break down and will whiten the teeth without the application of light exposure, but will do so more slowly. Whitening with gel alone should be extended to three 15-minute cycles, and may require more than one treatment for best results. For consistent, strong results in a single in-office visit, we recommend use of the gel combined with light acceleration.

      [Back to top]


    5. Is the gingival barrier necessary when performing the treatment?

      Yes, the gingival barrier must be used with the BEYOND whitening gel to protect tissues from contact with the whitening gel. The BEYOND BlueSeal Gingival Protection Gel is a light-cured resin-based product that is applied to dry gingiva prior to application of the whitening gel to the teeth. The BlueSeal material can be light-cured with the curing light included in the Polus system.

      [Back to top]


    6. Can dental hygienists perform a teeth bleaching/whitening procedure?

      Yes. In the US and most European countries the removal of stains from the surface of human teeth, including bleaching treatments, falls within the scope of practice of a registered dental hygienist. Regulations vary by state and country.

      [Back to top]


    7. Am I locked into the system? Are there chips or contracts?

      No. The BEYOND Polus accelerator is not locked in any way, and you’re welcome to adapt the treatment times as you like, use the system freely with your staff, or to test other gels with the system. (But we’re sure you’ll be happier with BEYOND gels, and our cost-per-patient!) If you prefer a locked system for your practice, please see the special COMMAND Whitening section in the menu to the left.
