What can I expect from Enlighten teeth whitening treatment?

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments provided by orthodontic practices as it has become increasingly accessible and offers excellent long-term results.

There are a number of methods used to performing this procedure, but arguably the most effective treatments are performed with a trained dental practitioner. At Dentalia we use the Enlighten teeth whitening system which is widely acknowledged as the most effective whitening system in the world. 

If you are interested in having a teeth whitening treatment and would like to find out more, here we offer some advice on what you should expect!


Before beginning any teeth whitening procedure we perform a free consultation where your teeth and oral health will be assessed to make sure that Enlighten treatment will be safe and successful. If required some preparatory dental treatment may be required before teeth whitening can begin.       


Once a treatment plan has been agreed you can make the important choice of how white you would like your teeth to appear. Enlighten offers a range of shades suitable for the look you require and is the only treatment capable of guaranteeing a Vita shade B1.     


Enlighten is a two-stage process starting with easy home application for two to three weeks depending on the outcome of your initial assessment. This will be followed by hour of surgery at higher concentration undertaken by your dentist, which will be used to finalise and lock in the whitening process.


Although the bleaching of the teeth can result in temporary dehydration of the gums the process is usually painless and will not cause any damage to your teeth. If you experience any soreness this can be treated using pain killers such as paracetamol. 


Many patients are surprised by just how affordable Enlighten tooth treatment is. Even better, Dentalia offer this services with a 0% finance offer.
