How Does Enlighten Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening is one of the most effective – and easiest – ways to cosmetically enhance your smile. In this post, our expert dentists here in Maidstone will outline how our Enlighten whitening works and what you can expect from the process, as well as some fast facts about the treatment.
How does it work?
It’s a two-step process that involves 2 weeks at home, finished with a 1-hour dentist appointment. Results are guaranteed, with a 98% success rate, and the treatment is a world-leader for teeth whitening.
What happens at my appointment?
First, we check over your smile to ensure the treatment is right for you. Next, we estimate your whitening results – then create a special goody bag just for you, which contains your at-home kit.
Why should I have treatment?
Your teeth might have become dull over time, or suffered the effects of smoking, coffee and sugary foods. Whether your smile has become stained or the enamel has thinned to show the darker dentin below, teeth whitening can help give your smile a brightening boost – and your confidence a kick, too.
Can I prevent future staining?
Of course – but you might need to make a few diet and lifestyle changes. For example, beverages like coffee and red wine, and activities such as smoking and even vaping, could cause staining. Also, sugary foods can eat away at your teeth’s enamel, showing the dentin beneath, so teeth appear yellow and discoloured.
What else do I need to know?
Here are a few ‘fast facts’ about our Enlighten whitening, offered here at our Maidstone dental practice:
1. Lasts a lifetime – with the proper oral care and regular dental check-ups for cleaning and maintenance, your newly-whitened smile lasts in the long-term.
2. Kind to your teeth – as safe as it is effective, the materials used have a 100-year history in helping teeth, and the addition of potassium nitrate helps reduce sensitivity.
3. Strengthens your smile – with fluoride included in the special formula, you’ll be strengthening your teeth at the same time as whitening them.
4. An affordable investment – with treatment priced at £549*, you can enjoy a beautiful, confident smile once again.
