How it works
Enlighten whitening works by increasing the tooth’s permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules.
It is a combination treatment meaning that there is a 2 week home treatment followed by a 1 hour visit to the dentist .
A digital model is taken of your mouth to ensure the trays fit perfectly resulting in a comfortable fit.
BEFORE & AFTER RESULTS
Your Questions Answered
Q. How white will my teeth get?
A. Enlighten Whitening can white up to 16 shades, results vary but if used correctly all teeth will whiten dramatically
Q. Will they look too white ?
A. No, natural teeth rarely look too white. Sometimes very white crowns can look wrong because they are made of porcelain
Q. Will my crowns, veneers, or fillings change colour?
A. No, sometimes you may need to change some of these after whitening
Q. Is it safe, will there be any discomfort?
A. 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
Q How long does it take?
A.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.
Q. How long does is last?
A. 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.
