Tooth Whitening

If you’re not happy with the colour of your teeth it’s now possible to lighten them by bleaching, so that your smile becomes more appealing and something to be proud of.

We have whitening gels available, which can be used at home in a custom made tray, which will whiten your teeth over a period of one to two weeks. These trays are thin and comfortable to wear and are most effective if worn overnight. The gel whitens natural tooth enamel but does not bleach artificial crowns or fillings. The teeth that bleach most easily and effectively are those that are yellow or brown. The gel doesn’t harm or weaken tooth enamel and the effect is relatively permanent with a ‘top up’ needed every one or two years.

Home whitening trays are now available at the special price of £199.00. Please ask reception for further details.

Enlighten Tooth WhiteningEnlighten whitening is the only system in the world to guarantee that the teeth will get to a VITA shade B1 – the whitest shade on a dentist shade guide.

How Does It Work?

Enlighten Evolution Whitening works by increasing the tooth’s permeability to oxygen which in turn breaks down stain molecules. It’s a combination treatment starting with a consultation to explain the full treatment course and take impressions. At your second appointment you will be given your custom fitting Super Seal trays. These have a double-layer for exceptional fit and are unique to the Enlighten Evolution system. You wear the Super Seal trays for 2 weeks, and then return to the practice for an in-surgery visit.

How Long Does It Take?

Two weeks following collection of your custom-fitting Super Seal Enlighten Whitening trays. These bespoke trays are thin and comfortable and must be worn in bed for 14 nights. This is then followed by an in-surgery procedure.

Teeth Whitening BangorIs there any pain or discomfort?

The treatment is pain-free. Occasionally some patients experience some sensitivity; however, when you collect your trays your dentist will give you some desensitising swabs to take home which work immediately. You will also receive a tube of Tooth Serum Toothpaste by Enlighten to brush with; this also helps with sensitivity if you experience it.

Teeth Whitening BangorHow White Will My Teeth Get?

Enlighten Evolution Whitening can whiten teeth up to 16 shades. Results vary but if used correctly all natural teeth will whiten dramatically.

What if I Have Crowns, Veneers or white Fillings?

Crowns or fillings will not whiten. At the initial consultation our dental hygienist or dentist will examine your mouth and advise as appropriate. It may be possible to replace crowns of fillings with a whiter shade to match your newly whitened teeth.

How long will the results last?

With some simple maintenance the whitening can last indefinitely. Wearing the trays one night a month combined with continuing use of Tooth Serum will keep your teeth looking healthy and white.

Is it safe?

Enlightening Evolution Tooth Whitening is completely safe and recommended by our dentists. The materials used in the programme have been used in Dentistry for over 100 years.
