Enlighten whitening is one of the world's most popular cosmetic dental treatments and has been creating dazzling smiles for the A-list celebrities for several years.
The Enlighten whitening system is an extremely effective whitening treatment that can lighten even the most severely stained teeth. The Enlighten system requires patients to wear a custom-made whitening tray for 14 days, after which a one-hour in-chair professional whitening session will be performed. The combination of at-home and in-chair whitening is able to produce incredible, long-lasting results.
Prior to having treatment your dentist will arrange a consultation to check that your teeth and gums are healthy. If there are any underlying issues these should be treated before you undertake treatment.
Patients will need to wear a custom-made tray containing whitening gel for 14 days during the night. The tray is designed to fit each patient's mouth specifically and will not be uncomfortable or painful. One this is complete we will invite you to the practice for a professional in-chair treatment. The in-chair treatment is a deep bleaching treatment and will lighten teeth by up to 16 shades (around 95% of people achieve at least a B1 shade).
The results of Enlighten treatment can be permanent but the shade you achieve immediately after treatment is unlikely to last constantly. However, you can keep your smile lovely and bright by wearing the whitening tray for one night every eight weeks. Enlighten is proven to have longer-lasting results than any other whitening treatment and you should be able to enjoy a glowing smile for many years. Patients should follow the dentist's advice regarding follow-up care and oral hygiene to ensure long-lasting results.
As with all tooth whitening treatments Enlighten can cause mild sensitivity. However, the treatment has been specially designed to minimise sensitivity and any discomfort you experience will subside quickly. The Enlighten system also uses a swab designed to reduce sensitivity and can be used at home.
