Brighter smile with Enlighten teeth whitening from Surbiton dentist

The whiteness of your teeth can make the difference between a good smile and a great smile. As we age, our teeth begin to lose their natural colour, meaning that a smile with faded teeth can make us look older and less healthy. The good news is that there are a number of teeth whitening systems available to restore the white appearance of young looking, healthy teeth.

Enlighten tooth whitening is one of the most common whitening products used across the UK. It has been clinically proven to whiten teeth by up to ten shades. Although not everyone’s teeth will respond in the same way to whitening, you can be fairly confident that there will be an improvement in the appearance of your teeth after just one treatment.

Anybody can have Enlighten tooth whitening as long as their teeth have previously been whiter and they do not have veneers on their teeth. The treatment works by applying a gel to the surface of the teeth in a special whitening tray. The gel contains the active ingredient hydrogen peroxide, which penetrates the discoloured enamel and bleaching it to appear whiter. Hydrogen peroxide has been safely used in dentistry for over a hundred years so a treatment from a dentist will be perfectly safe.

Whitening from Enlighten can last up to three years depending on your teeth and your lifestyle. Frequent visits to your Surbiton dentist will help to keep the newly whitened teeth looking good for longer, as will effective brushing at home. Tooth whitening is a perfectly safe procedure that shouldn’t involve anything more than a mild sensitivity during the treatment or immediately afterwards, which is a small price to pay to have beautiful white teeth.
