Enlighten tooth whitening is a dental technique where teeth are bleached using a specially designed solution. The results can be dramatic with teeth transformed from dark and stained to bright and beautiful.
What the procedure involves
The Enlighten tooth whitening treatment begins with your dentist taking an impression of your teeth in order to create bleaching trays to perfectly fit your mouth. You will be required to wear these trays every night for two weeks along with a special whitening gel. The day after this period finishes, a one hour deep bleaching treatment is carried out by your dentist to give your teeth a final intensive whitening boost.
After the procedure
The enlighten teeth whitening treatment is a pain free procedure. However, as with all bleaching processes, some patients may experience mild sensitivity for a few days after the procedure. This minor discomfort can be effectively treated by using the special Enlighten desensitizing swab that provided by your dentist.
How long does Enlighten tooth whitening last?
As with all tooth whitening treatments, regular reapplication is required to maintain optimum whiteness. The Enlighten system recommends wearing the dental trays for one night every eight weeks. In most cases, this is sufficient to keep teeth remaining bright and white.
However, it's still important to follow a healthy dental hygiene regime, and to be aware of the dietary and lifestyle choices that can adversely effect the whiteness of your smile.
Typical costs and prices
As with all dental procedures, the cost of Enlighten Whitening depends on where you live and the dental practice that you visit. But on average, prices of this tooth whitening treatment range from £500 to £750.
