Teeth whitening is one of the most impressive cosmetic treatments for your smile. Whether your teeth are generally dull or are heavily stained, teeth whitening can help restore a natural-looking brilliance that leaves teeth sparkling and shining. In this post, our dentists talk through Enlighten teeth whitening treatment, offered here in our Milton Keynes dental practice.

What is Enlighten?

It’s a professional grade teeth whitening treatment that combines the flexibility of at-home care with in-clinic expertise. Our patients love how effective this treatment is, and how long-lasting the results can be.

How does Enlighten work?

First, we’ll take impressions of your teeth. We’ll then create your very own teeth whitening trays. These are custom-made for your smile, which means they fit round your teeth and gums perfectly. The next step is at-home treatment – you’ll need to use a special teeth whitening gel for 2 weeks, followed by an in-clinic treatment, which lasts around 40 minutes.

Why have Enlighten?

Whether it’s a special event like a wedding, or to get that everyday clean and bright look, Enlighten teeth whitening can enhance your smile simply and affordably. It’s also a safe procedure, and you’ll have the care and expertise of a dentist along the way.

Will my smile look fake?

No, we aim for a natural-looking result – although the treatment can lift your tooth shade by up to 16 shades, and all patients are guaranteed at least a B1 shade result. Of course, if you want a more dramatic transformation, we can work with you on this, too.

Is the procedure painful?

No, aside from some temporary sensitivity. Using sensitive toothpaste and desensitising swabs can help combat this.

Are there any drawbacks to treatment?

Enlighten teeth whitening won’t enhance dental work such as crowns, fillings or veneers. It might be better to do this kind of work after having teeth whitening, so the ceramics can be matched to your newly whitened smile.

What else do I need to know?

Only how happy and confident you could be with your new, brighter smile! Imagine feeling confident, more youthful and able to show off your smile without shying away from the camera or covering your mouth. It really is transformational!
