Tooth Whitening FAQs

Q?

Can I spread the cost of the treatment?

A.

Yes. Ask us about our easy payment plan.

Q?

Is it safe?

A.

Completely. The materials used in Enlighten Whitening have been used in dentistry for over 100 years.

Q?

How long does it last?

A.

Results can last indefinitely with some very simple maintenance, wearing the trays for 1 night every other month. Continuing to brush with Tooth Serum will also prolong results.

 

Q?

How long does it take?

A.

2 weeks after delivering your Enlighten Whitening trays. These are thin and comfortable and must be worn in bed for 14 nights, then on the 15th day you need to return to The Dental Practice for the second treatment which only takes 40 minutes.

 

Q?

Is there pain or discomfort?

A.

A. you may get some sensitivity, however we will give you some “easy to use” desensitising swabs to take home, which will work immediately. You will also receive a tube of Tooth Serum toothpaste to brush with, while you wait for your whitening trays, – this also helps with sensitivity.

 

Q?

Will my crowns, veneers or fillings change colour?

A.

No, sometimes you may need to change some of these after whitening.

 

Q?

Will they look too white?

A.

No. Natural teeth rarely look too white. Sometimes very white crowns can look wrong because they are made of porcelain.

Q?

How white will my teeth get?

A.

Enlighten Whitening can whiten up to 16 shades, – results vary but if used correctly all teeth will whiten dramatically.
