Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Teeth can appear duller for a number of reasons, such as diet, ageing, certain medications, smoking and trauma.

Teeth whitening is a gentle process used to eliminate discolouration and lighten teeth, giving you a noticeably brighter and more youthful looking smile.


Brighten your smile to the whitest shade available on the market. Enlighten can achieve vita shade B1 through combining home kits with in-surgery whitening. This system is the gold standard of whitening.

1st appointment:

The first step is gathering impressions for us to create accurate mouth trays. We take these impressions and provide a special toothpaste that will help prep your teeth for a longest lasting result.

2nd appointment:

We check the fit of the trays once we have them back from the lab. We will instruct on how to wear the trays and how to apply the whitening gel. We take extra steps to reduce any sensitivity, including showing how desensitise teeth at home.

Treatment at home

You’ll need to wear the trays for two weeks at night, using one syringe for the first week and the other for the second.

3rd appointment:

We conclude the treatment with in-surgery whitening. Once this has been completed, your teeth will have reached the desired shade.

Home whitening

Dentist supervised home whitening offers a safer, more effective alternative to shop bought kits as the mouth trays are designed to fit you comfortably and securely, allowing the active gel to work more effectively. It can also be carried out at times to suit you, in the comfort of your own home.

Why choose home kits?

  • Effective
  • Convenient
  • Safe

Treatment steps

  • Impressions are taken of your teeth so customised whitening trays can be produced.
  • When ready, you will wear these at home with a whitening gel for a specified length of time each day.
  • After wearing the trays for a few weeks, you will attend a follow-up appointment to check your teeth have reached the desired shade.

Although this treatment is carried out at home, your dentist or dental therapist will keep a close eye on your teeth to lessen any gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.

Please note, teeth whitening will only work on natural teeth and will not be effective on restorations such as crowns, veneers or dentures.
