We consider Enlighten to be the best whitening system available. We consistently get excellent results giving our patient the brighter whiter smile they’ve always wanted. It is the only system to guarantee predictable and successful results. If you want whiter teeth, but not “Hollywood White”, this system also allows you to control the final colour of your teeth.
How does Enlighten Whitening work?
We first takes an impression of your teeth so that custom-made transparent whitening trays can be produced.
A gentle whitening gel is used in the trays and these are generally worn at night. After a few weeks we will review your progress. If you are happy with the final shade of your teeth no further treatment will be required. However, if you would like whiter teeth further home whitening or in surgery whitening can be used to achieve your desired shade. This technique can result in teeth appearing up to 14-16 shades lighter.
We also offer alternative whitening systems which can be worn for approximately 1 hour during the day.
How long will my teeth stay whiter?
The effects of whitening are thought to last up to three years. However, this will vary from person to person. The effect is less likely to last as long if you smoke, or eat or drink products that can stain your teeth. The advantage of tray whitening systems is that you can easily top up the whitening at any stage by wearing the trays for a couple of nights every few months.
