What is Enlighten Teeth Whitening? 

Enlighten teeth whitening is a revolutionary tooth whitening treatment designed to provide consistently impressive results, no matter your starting shade of teeth.

This system is unique in its ability to deliver the lightest shade attainable, Vita shade B1, to almost every patient. This kind of whitening experience is unparalleled, setting Enlighten Teeth Whitening apart from other treatments available on the market. 

At the heart of Enlighten Whitening is a carefully structured 3-week programme, utilising custom fitting trays and a special whitening gel. This easy-to-follow routine allows for a convenient and comfortable tooth whitening process which can be completed in the comfort of your own home.

What truly makes Enlighten stand out, however, is its guarantee to lighten teeth by up to 16 shades without causing any damage to the tooth enamel. This is a major breakthrough in the dental world and a testament to the effectiveness and safety of Enlighten Whitening.

How to use Enlighten Teeth Whitening? 

At Dee Dental Paisley, we aim to make your Enlighten Teeth Whitening experience as straightforward and comfortable as possible. Our approach to the treatment is carefully tailored to ensure the most comfortable and convenient process for our patients. 

The Enlighten process begins with an initial consultation with our team of Paisley and Glasgow dentists. We'll examine your dental health to ensure that Enlighten Whitening is a suitable treatment for you.

Following this, we will take precise impressions of your teeth to create your custom fitting whitening trays that will match your mouth and teeth exactly. These trays are a key component of the Enlighten Whitening system, and their custom fit ensures that the whitening gel can be applied evenly and effectively to each tooth, thereby guaranteeing optimal results. 

Once your trays are ready, we'll provide you with the Enlighten Whitening gel and guide you on how to use them at home. The process is incredibly simple - apply the gel to the trays each night and wear them while you sleep.

This at-home aspect of the treatment adds a level of convenience that makes Enlighten Whitening accessible for even the busiest lifestyles. 

Over the course of the three-week treatment period, you'll gradually see your teeth transform, becoming whiter and brighter. Your journey to a more radiant smile will not disrupt your daily routine, and lasting only three short weeks, you will have achieved the desired results before you know it.

What makes Enlighten Whitening different to other teeth whitening treatments? 

When it comes to professional teeth whitening treatments, there is no shortage of options. However, Enlighten Whitening stands out from the crowd due to its unique features and proven effectiveness.

The most distinctive feature of Enlighten Whitening is its unparalleled whitening power. This system is the only one in the UK that guarantees to lighten your teeth by up to an incredible 16 shades.

This means that almost all patients – 96% – can achieve the lightest possible shade, Vita shade B1, a level of whiteness that is typically hard to reach. With Enlighten Whitening, you can expect exceptional results that are rarely matched by other treatments. 

Another defining factor of Enlighten Whitening is its emphasis on preserving tooth health.

Many teeth whitening systems risk damaging the tooth enamel due to their aggressive bleaching agents. However, Enlighten Whitening ensures that no harm comes to your tooth enamel during the whitening process.

This commitment to maintaining the integrity and health of your teeth makes Enlighten Whitening a safer and more responsible choice for those seeking a dazzling smile without compromising oral health.

How long will it take to see results from Enlighten Whitening? 

The journey to a brighter, whiter smile with Enlighten Whitening is designed to be both effective and efficient. The entire treatment typically spans about three weeks.

While this may seem like a commitment, the incremental progress you witness as your smile transforms makes this period feel swift and rewarding. 

However, if you find that the Enlighten whitening results are not what you expected after the three-week treatment period is over, do not worry. The Dee Dental team will be here to help and guide you further on your whitening journey, ensuring you achieve the bright smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Enlighten Whitening results

Will Enlighten Teeth Whitening change the colour of my crowns and veneers? 

One common question we often encounter from patients considering teeth whitening treatments revolves around its impact on existing cosmetic dental work.

Specifically, many wonder if Enlighten Whitening would alter the colour of dental crowns, veneers, or fillings. 

Let's address this concern head-on: Enlighten Whitening, like most teeth whitening treatments, only affects natural teeth. The materials used in crowns, veneers, and fillings are not responsive to whitening gels and, therefore, will remain their original colour during and after the treatment. 

This differentiation in colour might become more noticeable if these restorations are at the front of your mouth. However, there's a solution. After you've completed the Enlighten Whitening treatment, and your natural teeth have achieved their brightest shade, these dental restorations can be replaced to match your newly whitened teeth.

We can seamlessly incorporate this into your overall treatment plan, giving you full details upon your initial consultation, so you are fully aware of what to expect before any whitening takes place.

How long does teeth whitening last? 

Many patients are curious to know how long they can enjoy their new, radiant smiles following Enlighten Whitening treatment.

The great news is that the whitening effect from an Enlighten treatment offers almost a permanent change, allowing you to show-off your bright smile for a long time. 

However, the durability of your results will also depend on certain factors, like your diet and oral hygiene practices. Certain food and drink, like coffee, tea, red wine, and other dark-coloured beverages, can stain teeth over time. To help maintain the whiteness and brightness achieved from the treatment, Enlighten offers top-up syringescontaining the same whitening gel used during your treatment.

Every few months, you can use a syringe for a night as a maintenance measure. This practice will ensure you are keeping your smile as white and bright as possible. 

In addition, maintaining good oral hygiene will be crucial to preserving the brightness of your smile.

Will Enlighten Tooth Whitening treatment hurt? 

During your Enlighten Whitening treatment, you may experience a degree of tooth sensitivity. This is quite normal and is usually temporary.

It's a reaction that can occur as the whitening gel does its work on your enamel, but it should subside once the treatment is complete. 

To manage this sensitivity and ensure your comfort, we’ll use bespoke desensitiser swabs. These swabs, applied directly to your teeth, help alleviate any discomfort and make the whitening process more pleasant. Moreover, they are easy to use and can be applied as needed during your treatment period. Rest assured that our professional Paisley and Glasgow dentists will strive to make your Enlighten Whitening treatment as smooth and comfortable as possible.

Will tooth whitening damage my teeth?

Tooth whitening, when performed correctly under the supervision of dental professionals, is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure. At Dee Dental Paisley, we prioritize patient safety and use proven methods like Enlighten whitening, which is gentle on the teeth and enamel.

Our experienced dentists assess each patient's oral health to determine suitability for whitening, addressing any underlying issues beforehand. The Enlighten whitening gel is formulated to protect enamel while effectively removing stains, with desensitising agents to minimise sensitivity and strengthen enamel.

Treatment is customised to your needs to ensure optimal results without compromising dental health. Comprehensive post-treatment care and instructions further minimise risks, allowing you to achieve a brighter smile with confidence! 

What are the common side effects of teeth whitening treatment?

When considering tooth whitening, it's also important to be aware of the common side effects it may have. Let's explore these concerns associated with tooth whitening:

  • Tooth sensitivity: While some patients may experience temporary tooth sensitivity during or after whitening treatment, this is typically mild and resolves on its own. Our Enlighten whitening uses desensitising agents to minimise sensitivity to ensure your comfort during and after the procedure.
  • Gum irritation: Gum irritation is uncommon with professional whitening treatments like Enlighten. Our skilled dentists take precautions to protect the gums during the procedure to lessen the risk of irritation. You can trust in our expertise to guarantee a safe and comfortable whitening experience.
  • Enamel damage: Concerns about enamel damage are understandable, but professional whitening treatments are designed to preserve dental health. Enlighten whitening is formulated to be gentle on enamel while effectively removing stains to prioritise enamel protection throughout the process.

Is Enlighten Teeth Whitening worth it?

Investing in tooth whitening can be a significant decision, and many patients wonder whether this procedure is truly worth it.

We believe that the benefits of Enlighten whitening outweigh the cost, providing patients with exceptional results and a more confident smile. 

  • Long-lasting results: One of the most important advantages of Enlighten whitening is its long-lasting results. Unlike over-the-counter whitening products that may provide temporary effects, it delivers professional-grade whitening that can last for years with proper maintenance. 
  • Safe and effective: Enlighten whitening is a safe and effective treatment performed by professional dentists. The advanced formula makes sure minimal sensitivity while still achieving stunning results, making it suitable for even the most sensitive teeth. 
  • Customised treatment: Compared to generic whitening kits, Enlighten tooth whitening is customised to each patient's unique needs and preferences. Our experienced dentists will tailor the treatment to address your specific concerns.
  • Professional guidance: With Enlighten teeth whitening, patients receive professional guidance and support throughout the entire process. Our team will guide you through each step, from the initial consultation to post-treatment care, for a seamless and rewarding experience. 
  • Enhanced confidence: A whiter, more radiant smile can boost your confidence and self-esteem, allowing you to smile more freely and interact with others confidently. Investing in Enlighten whitening is an investment in your overall well-being and quality of life.
