Cosmetic Dentistry » Teeth Whitening
Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened. Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.
Our Office 1-hour power whitening can whiten teeth by up to several shades, brightening your teeth dramatically to its natural shade. Your lips and gums are covered and a gel is applied to your teeth. A special light is positioned over your teeth to activate the gel, which gently penetrates your teeth, breaking up stains and discolouration. Whiter, brighter teeth in less than an hour!
A whitening gel is placed in a custom-made tray which you can wear whilst asleep or for short periods during the day.
Results are normally seen over 2 weeks.
Evolution whitening system
Enlighten's Evolution professional teeth whitening treatment is the only system in the world that will whiten up to 16 shades easily and safely and will give you a dramatic look.
The system uses state of the art materials which are so good that even the highest concentration of gel used is safe on the gums. Other major professional whitening systems use much higher concentration gels and therefore need to place a barrier on your gums and lips to protect them from being burnt.
With Evolution there is absolutely no need for any gum protection!
Dentists love this system because not only does it deliver a great result every time but it is safer and easier to use.
To get the absolute best out of the system there is some effort required on your side.
You will need to first have some impressions taken by your Enlighten accredited dentist. These impressions will be sent to our state of the art laboratory who will then make high quality sealed bleaching trays for you. This usually takes about two weeks. During this time you will need to use our amazing toothpaste called Tooth Serum twice a day instead of your regular toothpaste.
Next you will go back to your dentist to pick up the bleaching trays and your home whitening kit. You will then need to whiten your teeth at home every night for two weeks. Make sure you keep using the Tooth Serum twice a day.
This is no ordinary toothpaste. It 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.
Finally 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 a little 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.
The good news is that now you can keep your teeth white forever! By keeping your trays safe and purchasing more home gel from your dentist you can top up every now and then. We recommend you wear your trays one night every two or three months to keep your teeth at there optimum whitening level. For added benefit you can use the Tooth serum – this will help maintain the colour and protect your teeth. You can purchase more from your dentist.
