FAQs

How long does Enlighten take to whiten my teeth?

The Enlighten protocol is 14 Night at home whitening, followed by 40 mins in surgery.

What is tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface or damaging it. Usually the original shade of the tooth is whitened to a lighter colour, rather than being turned completely white.

What does dental teeth whitening involve?

Professional bleaching is the most usual method of tooth whitening. If you are a new patient, we will need to assess you first to make sure you are dentally fit and that tooth whitening is suitable for you. We will then give you the options that we think will be the most suitable for you. ‘Dentist-supervised home whitening’ or ‘In Chair’ whitening, as listed above. .

How long does tooth whitening take?

The total length of the home bleaching treatment can vary depending on how discoloured your teeth are and the shade you want to get to. It can usually be finished within two to four weeks. For the ‘in chair’ whitening we will normally book you in for a two-hour appointment and you will leave with whiter teeth straight away.

Will my teeth be sensitive after?

The most common concern is temporary teeth sensitivity, but lots of advances have been made in recent years to help combat this. Philips Zoom maximizes patient comfort, and 99% of patients experienced little to no sensitivity. And Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite (the Take Home Whitening products) have a special formula with built-in potassium nitrate and ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate), which are known desensitizers. These special ingredients make your enamel smoother and more lustrous as well. We also recommend that you brush with a sensitivity formula toothpaste.

How long will it last?

The effects of whitening are thought to last up to three years. However, this will vary from person to person. The effect is less likely to last as long if you smoke, or eat or drink products that can stain your teeth.

How can I look after my teeth once they’ve been whitened?

Many people find that their teeth and gums feel cleaner after they have been whitened. The whitening treatment was first used as a treatment to help heal gums, so this is an added benefit. You can help to keep your teeth white by cutting down on the amount of food and drink you have that can stain your teeth.

Can I have whitening at a beauticians or hair salon?

Due to changes in the law in October 2012 tooth whitening products with a percentage of hydrogen peroxide between 0.1%-6% can now only be provided by dentists. Any beauticians or hairdressers offering tooth whitening will be doing so at a much lower percentage of hydrogen peroxide which means results will be limited. If your beautician or hairdresser is still using a higher percentage of hydrogen peroxide this would be a breach of the regulations that came into effect in October 2012 and therefore a criminal offence. http://legislation.data.gov.uk/uksi/2012/2263/made/data.htm?wrap=true
