Woman with White TeethHave you ever considered cosmetic dentistry? With so many options available, what should you choose? If you want fast and cost-effective whiter teeth, then tooth whitening could be the choice for you. A popular choice is the Enlighten tooth whitening system. The difference between Enlighten whitening and other teeth whitening products is the guaranteed results. Enlighten has featured in numerous press articles and TV makeovers. Enlighten products have also been used by several celebrities. As well as this, various media companies also call them for their expert tooth whitening opinion.

It is a combination treatment, meaning that there is a two-week home treatment, followed by a 40-minute visit at a trustworthy dentist, such as The Dental Surgery Burnham LTD, where they have been providing quality dental care for nearly 40 years.

Enlighten’s signature home system has been optimised for predictability and ease of use, for both the dentist and the patient. If you follow your dentist’s guidelines your teeth will whiten and brighten as expected.

How white can my teeth get?

Enlighten bleaching can whiten teeth by up to 16 shades. The results can vary but if used correctly all teeth will whiten significantly, so you’ll be able to see the difference when you look in the mirror.

Is painful at all?

You may have some sensitivity after your treatment. However, your dentist will give you easy to use desensitising swabs to take home, which will work immediately.

How long does it take and will it last?

Your Enlighten bleaching trays must be worn in bed for 14 nights, then on the 15th day you need to see your dentist for the second treatment, which only takes 40 minutes.

This short tooth whitening treatment can provide results that can last for 6 months, depending on your lifestyle and eating habits. The original stained colour is unlikely to return during this time.

The best way to prolong the effects of your treatment is to avoid foods and drinks that stain strongly, cut back on or quit smoking, and keep up with a good dental hygiene regimen.

Is it safe?

Enlighten is completely safe, as the materials in the bleaching gel have successfully been used in dentistry many years.
