Enlighten whitening is a combination treatment meaning that there is a two week home treatment followed by a one hour in surgery treatment.
Enlighten works by increasing the tooth’s permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. This can result in lightening the teeth up to 16 shades.
On visiting your clinician, you will have impressions taken in preparation for your custom fitted trays. These are thin and comfortable and are worn overnight for 14 nights. On the 15th day you are booked into the clinic to complete the in surgery session and this will take up to an hour.
Enlighten whitening does not change the colour of crowns, restorations or veneers, these would need to be addressed after the treatment is carried out. In most cases these would need to be replaced.
This advanced, predictable whitening procedure erases the effects of ageing, coffee, red wine and cigarette staining. Results can last indefinitely with some very simple maintenance, wearing the trays for one night every other month alongside the top up gel and continuing to brush with the Evo-White toothpaste ensures a long lasting naturally bright smile.
