Enlighten Teeth Whitening: What You Need To Know

If you are you one of the millions of people around the world who dream of whiter teeth, then you need to know about Enlighten teeth whitening. This teeth whitening treatment used by dentists has been proven effective by many satisfied customers.

What is Enlighten? Enlighten is a teeth bleaching treatment that consists of a home-kit that will allow you to prepare your teeth, and a bleaching session at the dental clinic. Results show that teeth can become at least 15 shades whiter after this treatment. Depending on how stained your teeth are, you may or may not require succeeding sessions.

What is the procedure for Enlighten? Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth using a wax mould, and based on this impression, have a set of bleaching trays made for you. Each of these bleaching trays will fit around your teeth and are made with a concentration of carbamide peroxide gel. Every night for two weeks, you will take these trays and wear them on your teeth with a whitening gel. This procedure is meant to be a preparation for the second part of your treatment – the deep bleaching session at your dentist’s clinic.

After the two-week preparation, you will go back to your dentist. Your dentist will apply a stronger bleaching agent than the one that you used at home. This is hydrogen peroxide. It is applied on your teeth, and then, your teeth would be exposed to the Enlighten whitening lamp for 20 minutes, three times. This is the deep bleaching portion of the Enlighten teeth whitening process.

There are certain safety precautions that your dentist will observe to ensure a successful procedure. He or she will cover your gums so that it is not affected by the whitening agents, and he or she may also use a cheek retractor and a lip balm on you. There is also a gel to minimize the pain during the process.

Before you decide to have this treatment done, you must be aware of the minimal risks involved. Your teeth will be extra sensitive, especially to hot and cold food and beverages, but this sensitivity usually disappears after a day. Also, extra sessions may be required if your teeth are heavily stained. The dentist may also give you a home kit so you can whiten your teeth every two weeks.

Otherwise, there is no reason for you not to be smiling – and smiling widely – after your Enlighten teeth whitening treatment.
