Teeth whitening gel in tray

What is teeth whitening?

Over time, our teeth inevitably become discoloured or stained. Some discolouration is a natural part of the ageing process, sped up by lifestyle factors including drinking tea and coffee or smoking, but can leave you longing for whiter teeth. Teeth whitening is a quick, easy and highly effective way to achieve a brighter and healthier looking smile and give your confidence a further boost.

Frequently asked questions

  • Is teeth whitening painful?
    No, teeth whitening is completely pain free. Whitening your teeth with Enlighten is actually designed to be comfortable, with highly accurate and snug whitening trays and low sensitivity gel to bring you the best treatment experience. In some cases, you may find your teeth are more sensitive during treatment, but this is temporary and goes as soon as treatment is complete.
  • How white will my teeth become?
    It is entirely up to you how white you would like your teeth to be after Enlighten treatment. We are here to guide you, but most patients are keen to achieve the VITA B1 shade guaranteed by Enlighten in 98% of cases. Your teeth will be beautifully bright, shiny and youthful looking in no time.
  • Is teeth whitening safe?
    When carried out by a dental professional, teeth whitening is completely safe. We are on hand to monitor your progress and use fully regulated treatment that will cause no harm to your teeth and gums. Avoid using kits you can buy easily online or in beauty salons as these could cause unnecessary damage.
  • Can teeth whitening damage my teeth?
    No, teeth whitening treatment supervised by a dental professional will not damage your tooth enamel or structure in any way. You may feel some sensitivity during treatment, but this is temporary and much more unlikely with the Enlighten whitening system.
  • How long will my Enlighten whitening results last?
    After one treatment, you can expect your results to last up to three years before another treatment is needed, depending on your individual teeth. You can maintain your dazzling results indefinitely with Enlighten top ups, simply by wearing your whitening trays and gel for one night every few months.
