Teeth whitening

In line with our philosophy of helping our patients look after the teeth nature gave them, we offer a safe and gentle method of significantly whitening your teeth without resorting to expensive and invasive procedures.

How does teeth whitening work ?

Lady smile with white teeth

In order to whiten your natural teeth by up to 16 shades, we use a process called Evolution bleaching. Teeth are gently whitened by increasing their permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. The procedure is completely safe; “bleaching” may sound a bit scary but it has been used in dentistry for over 100 years.

Why choose Enlighten teeth whitening ?

Enlighten is a well respected system of tooth whitening using a combination of carbamide and hydrogen peroxide, which is the only legally licenced product for tooth whitening in the UK and Europe.

The temporary sensitivity which can be experienced with tooth whitening treatment is minimal with Enlighten. Each course of treatment is tracked by the manufacturers to ensure optimal safety of the product.

What are the options to have my teeth whitened ?

Home kits and salon teeth whitening

The NHS advises patients to only go to a registered dental professional for teeth whitening because whitening by people who are not dentally qualified, for example in beauty salons, is illegal. Home kits also carry risks.

Teeth whitening by your dentist

We take an impression of your teeth to produce a mouthguard custom made to your mouth to ensure the safety of the treatment. We then provide you with instruction to apply a bleaching gel over a period of 2 weeks.
