Enlighten Whitening

Enlighten Whitening is one of the most popular whitening treatment. The Enlighten system, available at Barnton Dental Spa, is a professional whitening treatment that can lighten the colour of the teeth by up to sixteen shades. Enlighten is a deep bleaching system, which can transform even the darkest teeth.

Why choose Enlighten?

Enlighten has become extremely popular in recent years thanks to numerous celebrity endorsements and the growth in popularity of television makeover and beauty shows. Enlighten is popular with professionals because it produces incredible, long-lasting results. Enlighten has an excellent success rate and 95 percent of cases achieve an improvement of between 14 and 16 shades lighter.

Many people are worried about going to the dentist and put off having treatments because they are scared of the dentist's chair. The Enlighten whitening treatment is non-invasive and does not cause any pain or carry any risks. The system produces amazing results without any hassle or pain, and the treatment does not disrupt people's daily lives with results clear for everyone to see after just two weeks.

What does the treatment involve?

The Enlighten system involves both in-house and at-home treatments. Your Edinburgh dentist will first make an impression of your teeth, which will then be sent off to the laboratory. The impression will be used to create a special, custom-made bleaching tray, which will be worn for 14 consecutive nights. The following day, you will be asked to visit the practice so that a deep bleaching treatment can be applied to the teeth; this session should last around one hour.

In order to maintain the colour of the teeth, it is advisable to wear the bleaching tray for one night every eight weeks. If the teeth are looked after properly, the results the Enlighten treatment can last a lifetime.

Are there any disadvantages?

All teeth whitening treatments can cause temporary sensitivity; however, the Enlighten system combats this problem by providing patients with a unique desensitising swab, which helps to prevent pain and discomfort associated with heightened tooth sensitivity.

A combination of teeth that could only be described as reminiscent of a broken piano, were only worsened when I broke my front tooth, throwing my face at a granite bolder whilst hiking! Like most people living with teeth that quite literally, were nothing to smile about, it had been my intention to get them straightened, and in the case of the broken tooth, crowned, as soon as possible.

If you are reading this, you probably already know that by getting your teeth straightened, you're going to notice a huge difference and love the results...

Before and after photographs always look good. They wouldn't be shown otherwise. Mine are no different. I'm really delighted with the outcome. But photographs can only depict results, and show nothing about how they were achieved. Like a maths exam at school, the correct result is of little use without knowing the workings. In my opinion, the workings don't come any better than they do at BDS. I visited a few places before deciding on my treatment. The decisive factor for me was the personnel, and I made an excellent decision on that basis. Dr Khaira is simply one of the most outstanding professionals I have ever had the pleasure to meet...
