Why should I whiten my teeth?
There are many reasons for whitening your teeth, including:
- The boost to your confidence and self-esteem that comes from a great smile
- A younger appearance
- A special event such as a wedding, job interview etc
- To make a positive first impression on others
- To simply reverse years of everyday staining and yellowing
The Enlighten Teeth Whitening is completed after three visits:
Visit 1: In your first visit we will take impressions of your teeth, using special impression material supplied by Enlighten. These impressions will be sent to an Enlighten state of the art laboratory, who will then fabricate high quality sealed bleaching trays for you. This will take about 2 weeks to be ready. During this time you will need to use special tooth paste twice a day every day, which contains a material called Hydroxyapatite (HAP) which is what your Enamel is made of, 97% of it in fact! This HAP will not only improve the whitening effect but it will also protect your teeth and reduce any sensitivity.
Visit 2: On the next visit you will pick up your bleaching try from dentist together with whitening gel which you will need to use for 14 CONSECUTIVE NIGHTS.
Visit 3: Lastly you will return to your dentist for a 40 minute treatment in the surgery. Make sure you bring your whitening trays with you. This final treatment will not only boost the colour but will ensure the whitening is even and natural looking and help the colour to be more stable i.e. the whitening will last longer.
If the teeth are still sensitive, it may be advisable to use anti-sensitive toothpaste, such as Colgate Pro relief or Sensodyne.
What are the common side effects?
Teeth whitening is a safe, effective, non-invasive and popular method of brightening all natural teeth. Some patients experience sensitivity during the whitening process, however this is minimised with the use of anti-sensitive toothpaste. It is vital that the procedure is followed strictly as this will ensure the best overall results are achieved.
Will Enlighten teeth whiting whiten my crown and veneers and previous fillings?
Enlighten teeth whitening only whiten your natural teeth. It does not whiten porcelain or white composite restorations and these may need to be changed if you wish to have the colour matched to your new whitened teeth.
How long will Enlighten last for?
The great news is that with Enlighten whitening you can keep your teeth whiter forever, you may need a whitening top up for a couple of days, in a year or two, so it is advisable to keep your trays safe and you can purchase more home gel at a fraction of the price when you feel the need to.
