What is Enlighten?
Enlighten is the only system in the world to guarantee VITA shade B1 with such Impressive results achieved over the years. Enlighten works by increasing the tooth's permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. It is a combination treatment meaning that there is a 2 weeks home treatment followed by a 1 hour visit to the dentist.
How does it work?
Home bleaching consists of trays similar to retainers or a sports/mouth guard, being made here at our Birmingham Dental Practice using a simple impression taking method, were exact moulds of your teeth are created using a dental laboratory for best results. We then provide you with the teeth whitening kit, which will contain the bleaching syringes, you then put the bleach in your bleaching trays and continue the same process every night for 14 nights ( may be less if the desired results are achieved beforehand ) on the 15th day you then return to the surgery for your 1 hour surgery bleaching session in which a stronger bleach is applied in house to maximize your results.
How white will my teeth get?
Enlighten whitening can whiten up to 16 shades, results vary but if used correctly all teeth will whiten dramatically.
Will they look to white?
No, natural teeth rarely look to white, sometimes very white crowns can look wrong because they are made of porcelain.
Is it safe?Completely, the materials used in enlighten whitening have been used in dentistry for over 100 years.
Will my crowns, veneers or fillings change color?
No, sometimes you may need to change these after whitening, so if you do need cosmetic work you will always be advised to whiten prior to this.
