Enlighten whitening FAQs

What is Enlighten Whitening?

Enlighten is one of the fastest, most effective, and most predictable teeth whitening systems available. With digital tray production and a two-week whitening treatment followed by a chairside follow-up, Enlighten is the only whitening system that guarantees a VITA B1 shade. The gentle anti-sensitivity formula requires no lifestyle or dietary changes, with long lasting results, making it the perfect choice for anyone looking to enhance their smile.

How does it work?

You'll start your journey at a mydentist practice. where we will scan or take an impression of your teeth to create a custom applicator tray. These trays are digitally designed for superb comfort and fit, ensuring fantastic results. Simply wear the trays with gel overnight for two weeks and follow up with your dentist for a final check-up. You'll also be given top-up syringes, allowing you to maintain your results indefinitely.

How long does it take?

In most cases, the treatment takes 15 days. For complex cases, it may take up to 8 weeks, but your dentist will provide an accurate expectation during your initial appointment.

Will my restorations change colour?

Unfortunately, only your natural teeth will change colour. If you have crowns, veneers, composite fillings or any sort of artificial teeth, these will not change colour. For this reason, we recommend you have your whitening treatment first and then consider cosmetic work to match your newly whitened teeth afterwards.

Is it safe?

Yes, Enlighten Whitening is completely safe for most people. However, if you are pregnant or nursing, we recommend you wait before undergoing treatment.

How comfortable is it?

While some patients may experience a mild sensitivity during treatment, this is uncommon. Around 2% of patients may experience more intense sensitivity, but this should go away once the treatment is stopped.

Can't I just buy the gel myself?

UK law prohibits the sale of professional teeth whitening products directly to consumers, so to ensure your safety, you should only use treatments recommended by your dentist. Before you start a mydentist professional will perform a thorough examination to ensure the treatment is safe and appropriate for you.

Have you thought about?

To enhance your smile makeover, teeth whitening is often used alongside other dental cosmetic treatments such as teeth straightening and composite bonding.

Patients start with clear aligner treatment to straighten their teeth which is then followed by brightening with teeth whitening, with composite bonding completing the final touches to the smile makeover.
