Enlighten Tooth Whitening
We are now an Enlighten Tooth Whitening Accredited Practice!
We are proud to announce that as of Monday the 30th April, we became an Enlighten Tooth Whitneing accredited practice, and are now able to offer this exciting new way of bleaching your teeth.
With a guarenteed shade of Vita B1 (which is the whitest shade that our Vita shade guide goes), you can look forward to having an amazing smile.
Enlighten is different to most other whitening systems as it can dramatically whiten even the darkest of teeth.
This whitening system works a bit differently to our other whitening system Zoom! (which is still available by the way!). Basically the Enlighten is a mixture of both at home bleaching and in surgery bleaching. It's gentle on your teeth because it's done over a matter of weeks so it's ideal if you suffer from sensitivity.
You attend here at the practice for the first 20 minute appointment. During this time, your dental practicitoner will take alginate impressions of your teeth so that we can send off to have your customised bleaching trays made. They take 2 weeks to be made, during which time we provide you with some special tooth serum that will replace your normal toothpaste for 2 weeks. This is the first stage.
After the two weeks have passed, you attend for another 20 minute appointment with your dental practictioner, who will show you how to wear your new bleaching trays, and apply some de - sensitiser to your teeth.
You then go home and for 2 weeks you wear your new trays over your teeth every night so that the bleach can start to whiten your teeth. We will give you full instructions on how to care for your trays and use the bleaching gel.
On the 15th day, you attend the practice again for the final stage. You will spend 40 minutes with us while we use a much more powerful bleach on your teeth to get them up to Vita shade B1. This is known as the deep bleach stage, and the final stage of your initial treatment. Your teeth could be at least 15 shades lighter! We will always start treatment by checking your current tooth shade so that we can compare to the end result.
