Professional Teeth Whitening Explained: Everything You Need to About Enlighten

Article by Dr Raha Sepehrara

We all want a dazzling white smile. The reality is that, at best, we have off-white or even slightly yellow teeth. Added to this, so much can stain our teeth, including tobacco smoke, red wine, coffee, tea, spicy foods, cola, berries, and more. 

Because you can’t brush stains and discolouration away, you’ll need a better solution. Options like whitening toothpaste and shop-bought treatments won’t get the results you want and could damage your teeth. So, what are the professional options? 

With Enlighten professional teeth whitening, you can achieve a brighter, more youthful-looking smile, with most of the treatment taking place in the comfort of your home. 

In this article, we’ll explain everything you need to know about this innovative solution and how it can help you get the beautiful white smile you deserve.

What is Enlighten Teeth Whitening?

Enlighten is a professional teeth-whitening system that can brighten your smile to a VITA B1 shade. That’s the most natural shade of white possible. To achieve this, Enlighten uses a powerful whitening solution to remove staining and reverse discolouration. 

Unlike some whitening treatments, you’ll use Enlighten at home. Each night, you’ll add the special gel to the custom-made whitening trays provided and gently brighten your smile. 

How Does Enlighten Work?

Some stains and discolouration are only surface level, whereas others sit deep in the pores of your teeth. While you can often remove lighter staining by improving your oral hygiene routine, deeply embedded particles and stains are stubborn and require a whitening treatment. 

Enlighten uses a special gel to penetrate deep into the enamel and dentin, removing even the most stubborn stains. 

Before treatment, we’ll assess your teeth to ensure Enlighten is right for you. Due to the nature of the whitening gel, we’ll need to repair damaged teeth first. 

To begin the treatment, we’ll take an impression of your teeth, and the lab will produce custom-made trays which will hold the whitening gel. These trays are like comfortable mouthguards you wear every night during your treatment. 

Once the trays are ready, we’ll show you how to fill them with the whitening gel prepared for use and talk you through what you’ll need to do each night. We’ll give you the gels, and you can begin the treatment. 

After wearing the trays for 14 nights, we’ll ask you to come back to see us for a final treatment that will perfect your new smile. This session will last for around an hour.
