About Enlighten Teeth Whitening

Enlighten Teeth Whitening in Steyning, Sussex - Down House Dental PracticeOur experienced dentists here at Down House Dental Practice will make you a custom mould that fits your teeth and is comfortable to wear. Enlighten teeth whitening gel will then be applied to this tray, either by your dentist in the surgery, or by you at home. This will break down the particles causing the discolouration. You will achieve a smile that’s brighter, whiter and virtually no hassle to maintain.

  • Up to 16 shades lighter
  • 98% success rate
  • Natural looking
  • Long-lasting effects
  • Highly skilled, professional dentists

The custom moulds, or trays, into which you will squeeze the Enlighten teeth whitening gel, are very thin and made precisely to fit your individual set of teeth. This is done using impressions of your teeth that will be made in the surgery. As you will be wearing the moulds overnight, we want you to be as comfortable as possible. Our approach is different to that of generic home-whitening kits, which provide a one-size-fits all mould, designed for the convenience of the manufacturer rather than the convenience of the customer. Our Enlighten teeth whitening treatment in Steyning, Sussex is suited specifically to the individual, in order to achieve the very best results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe?

Tooth whitening treatments, such as the one we offer at our practice, have been used safely for over 100 years. As the active ingredient in the Enlighten paste passes through the enamel of your teeth, your tooth surfaces will remain unharmed.

Are there any side-effects?

Many tooth whitening systems cause sensitivity in the teeth afterwards, but leading brand, Enlighten, prides itself on its low tooth sensitivity rate. Our dentist will give you desensitising swabs to use at home following treatment. This will further ensure that any heightened tooth sensitivity you experience is minimal.

How long will the effects last?

If you top up the treatment by using an overnight tray one night every other month, the effects should last indefinitely. No need to worry about tooth staining or the foods that cause it any longer!

How long does the treatment take?

The trays are worn overnight, every night, for 14 nights, while the in-surgery treatment takes about 40 minutes. The length of time your tooth whitening will take depends on the treatment option you choose.

How much is it?

Our Enlighten teeth whitening home system is priced competitively. If you’re looking to whiten a single arch, it starts from just £357. For those who prefer to whiten both arches, the cost is from £600. This allows you to choose the option that best suits your needs and budget, while still benefiting from our effective teeth whitening solutions.

Does Enlighten whitening damage your teeth?

As long as it is done as prescribed and instructed by our dentist, Enlighten is 100% safe.

How long do I leave Enlighten teeth whitening on?

In week 1 and week 2, you should keep the Enlighten trays on for as long as you are asleep, ideally as close to 8 hours as possible. During week 3, you should whiten for 1 hour per day.

How should I use Enlighten?

Enlighten is a 3-week professional teeth whitening system used over 14 consecutive nights and 7 consecutive days. It involves custom-made, super-sealed trays and three different strengths of pH-stable, high-quality gels. Video instructions can be found by clicking HERE.

Had nothing but positive experiences. Learned more about dental hygiene here than any of the previous practises I've been to.

This review is for Tesh the hygenist. I honestly can't recommend Tesh more highly. He is incredibly thorough and clearly knows what he's doing. Tesh is so good I have upped the amount of times I see him to every four months rather than every six. He keeps detailed notes of every visit so he can carefully track how I'm doing and help me target specific areas of concern. As I am getting older keeping my gums healthy becomes more important as I really want to keep as many teeth as possible in old age! Tesh is always upbeat, very encouraging and also keen to know how I and my family are doing.
