Enlighten Teeth Whitening can whiten up to 16 shades. Results vary, but if used correctly all teeth will whiten dramatically. Natural teeth rarely look too white. Sometimes very white crowns can look wrong because they are made of porcelain.
Will my crowns, veneers or fillings change colour?
No, sometimes you may need to change some of these after whitening.
Is it safe? Is there any pain?
It is completely safe. The materials used in Enlighten Whitening have been used in dentistry for over 100 years. You may get some sensitivity; however, your dentist will give you easy to use desensitising swabs to take home, which will work immediately. You will also receive a tube of Tooth Serum toothpaste to brush with while you wait for your trays. This also helps with sensitivity.
How long does it take?
Two weeks after your dentist delivers your Enlighten Whitening trays. These are thin and comfortable and must be worn in bed for 14 nights. Then on the 15th day you need to see your dentist for the second treatment, which takes only 40 minutes.
How long does it last?
Results can last indefinitely with some very simple maintenance. Wearing the trays for 1 night every other month. Continuing to brush with Tooth Serum will also prolong results.
How many appointments will I need?
You will be required to book three appointments:
- Appointment one: a free consultation to have a chat about your tooth whitening goals and that you are suitable. If you’re happy then we can take the impressions at this stage to make your uniquely designed tooth whitening trays.2.
- Appointment two: is when the uniquely designed tooth whitening trays are fitted and then you start to whiten your teeth from home each evening for the next 2 weeks.
- Appointment three: in-surgery tooth whitening whilst you can relax and watch a movie and then we will reveal your new Enlightened Smile, before and after pictures.
