Considering teeth whitening? Try Enlighten…

1 July 2021

Want to make an impression?

Tooth whitening is one of the easiest ways to enhance your looks. Whether you want to add a sparkle to your smile on your wedding day or make the difference in a business meeting, tooth whitening is simple, affordable, and safe.

Many people say they feel years younger after having treatment, erasing the effects of ageing, coffee, red wine, and cigarettes. The difference with Enlighten® is the results. Follow your dentist’s guidance and your teeth will whiten beyond any other whitening system available on the market.

How does it work?

Tooth colour is genetically determined just like hair colour, though, unlike hair, teeth tend to darken naturally with age. Over time, teeth can become superficially stained by coffee, red wine, and tobacco, which is generally easier to remove. Internal staining can be more difficult to remove, and may develop as a result of illness, certain medication or when the nerve ‘dies’.

Enlighten® whitening works by increasing the permeability of your teeth to oxygen, which helps to break down stain molecules within the enamel. Your treatment will involve 2 weeks of home whitening followed by a 40 minute in-surgery power whitening session to help your teeth reach their maximum whiteness.

You will be given Enlighten® whitening trays to use overnight. These specially designed custom-made trays are what makes the Enlighten® system so predictable, reliable, and successful. These same trays are used for your in-surgery power whitening session so remember to bring them with you!

 

Will it be painful?

You may get some sensitivity during treatment. You will be given Enlighten® desensitising swabs to take home with you, which will instantly relieve any sensitivity you have. You will also be given Enlighten® tooth serum toothpaste, a hydroxyapatite and fluoride-based sensitivity toothpaste providing unrivalled nourishment and comfort for your teeth.

How white will my teeth get?

Enlighten® can whiten up to 16 shades! Results vary but if used correctly, all teeth will whiten dramatically.

 

Will they look too white?

No, natural teeth rarely look too white. Teeth generally only look artificial when they are made from artificial materials such as porcelain or acrylic.

Will my crowns, veneers or white fillings change colour?

No, but you may choose to have them replaced afterwards if they no longer match the colour of your teeth.

How will I keep my teeth white afterwards?

Maintaining your white smile has never been easier. We recommend topping up 1 night every 2 months, so you will only need 1 tube of top-up gel per year.

Additional tubes of whitening gel are available from reception. You will also be given Enlighten® evo-white toothpaste, a revolutionary toothpaste with novel sur-factant technology that inhibits both stain and plaque development. It helps to break down stains using enzymes instead of harsh abrasives so it’s completely safe for your enamel.

Is it safe?

Absolutely, the materials used in Enlighten® have been used in dentistry for over 100 years.
