What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening can mean a number of treatments that improve the shade of your smile, making discoloured, stained or darkened teeth look brighter. This can involve home treatments that use whitening trays filled with a gel that bleaches your teeth and removes stains, or more advanced in-clinic treatments that are done in one session and are more intensive in nature.

Enlighten Whitening

Enlighten Whitening is one of the most popular whitening treatment. The Enlighten system, available at Barnton Dental Spa in Edinburgh, 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 of Enlighten treatment can last a lifetime.

What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening can have a number of benefits, of which the clearest benefit is aesthetic. You will have a brighter, whiter smile which can help to boost your confidence and make sure people see it. As well as this, the treatment can serve to kill bacteria that is a leading cause of gum disease and tooth decay. Professional teeth whitening as well is also safer and more effective than over the counter solutions, and can provide dramatic improvements in some cases that avoids the need for more intensive cosmetic treatments such as veneers.

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.
