Lighten your smile with Enlighten

Enlighten whitening guarantees a Vita shade B1 for your teeth, a super but subtle white colour so you’ll be showing them off in no time at all. It’s a great option if you have sensitive teeth and because it works through the enamel it doesn’t harm the tooth surface. The best thing of all is that you can continue to enjoy your favourite foods during the treatment.

Why choose Bamboo Dental for your Enlighten whitening in Cardiff?

We understand that you’re spoilt for choice in Cardiff when it comes to dentists. However, with our focus on personalised, accessible, and cost-effective care, we’re a bit different.

Our foundation is based on the belief that everyone deserves a smile they can be proud of. Whether you opt for an Enlighten treatment, or any other cosmetic dental procedure, our focus is always on catering to our patients’ needs, rather than imposing our schedules on them.

Is Enlighten Teeth Whitening any good?

Ask one of our hundreds of satisfied patients! Enlighten teeth whitening is a routine and popular procedure for its ability to guarantee a Vita B1 shade with 98% certainty. It’s a great option for sensitive teeth, which is one of the reasons it’s so popular with our patients.

How long does Enlighten Tooth Whitening last?

How long your Enlighten whitening will last depends on your personal circumstances, diet, and condition of your teeth, but with the right care, can be expected to last up to three years.

How long does Enlighten Teeth Whitening take to work?

Typically, you can expect to see some results from your Enlighten whitening in as little as three days, with most cases finishing in 3 weeks. In more complex cases, this can be up to eight weeks, but we’ll let you know during your initial consultation what to expect.

How long do I wear Enlighten trays?

We recommend wearing your Enlighten trays overnight when sleeping for maximum effectiveness. This depends on your individual circumstances, but we’ll let you know what to expect at your consultation.

Is Enlighten Whitening painful?

One of the main reasons our patients love Enlighten is that it’s suitable for sensitive teeth, so often can be less painful than other whitening treatments which can sometimes cause minor irritation.

How often do you top up Enlighten Whitening?

The results of Enlighten whitening can last up to three years for those who take good care of their teeth. Whether you decide to have a ‘top up’ after this time is entirely a personal decision, but we can work with you to reach your desired goals. Top up gel is relatively inexpensive and can be bought at the practice.

Can I drink coffee while using Enlighten?

One of the great things that our patients love about Enlighten whitening is that it doesn’t require any change to your diet, so yes you can drink coffee! We recommend using a straw to avoid staining, but unlike other whitening treatments, there are no restrictions as to what you can eat or drink with Enlighten. Note that drinking coffee will impact the effectiveness of your whitening, as it is a harsh liquid that causes staining.

Is Enlightening Teeth Whitening permanent?

No teeth whitening treatments are permanent. With proper aftercare, the results of teeth whitening from Enlighten can last up to three years before touch-up treatments may be desired.

How strong is Enlighten Teeth Whitening?

Enlighten is a treatment which is so routine and effective, it’s guaranteed to give a Vita B1 (extremely light) shade in up to 98% of patients. This is enabled by working straight through the enamel, for high effectiveness. The gels gradually build up in strength to ultimately be the strongest we can legally give you.

How does it work?

Often our patients want to know exactly what the process of having Enlighten looks like. It’s a straightforward procedure that is often completed quickly and leaves you with a transformed smile. Generally we’ll go through the following steps:

Initial consultation
After chatting and getting to know you a little, we’ll examine the condition of your teeth to gauge your suitability for Enlighten. If you have cavities or issues with the gums, we will need to address these first. We might clean your teeth to remove any plaque or build-up so to increase the effectiveness of your whitening. We’ll also take a snapshot of your teeth’s current shade, as well as some before photos, so you can see the difference once your treatment is complete.

3D Dental scan
Next, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to create the trays which will hold the whitening gel. These are customized to you and the shape of your mouth and teeth for a perfect fit. We may give you an activator gel to use on your teeth before you begin the whitening phase of the treatment. This primes the teeth for whitening.

Whitening gel application
Once the trays are ready, we’ll make sure they’re a perfect fit so you don’t have any discomfort. We may bond small composite attachments onto the four molar teeth at the back of your mouth so to help lock in the whitening tray. This helps achieve best possible results. At this point, you can take your trays/gels home.

Home Application
We’ll give you instructions on how to apply your gel using the trays. The active ingredient in the mould passes through the dental enamel, breaking down stains by chemical oxidation. You’ll then wear the whitening trays overnight for three weeks gradually building up the strength of the gel and then visit your cosmetic dentist or one of our hygienists for the final assessment of tooth colour. We then suggest that you keep your smile looking bright by using special toothpaste or serum which we give you.

Monitoring Progress
We’ll recommend you see us regularly to monitor the progress of your whitening and ensure everything is as expected. We might make adjustments if needed, depending on how regular check-ups with the dentist may be scheduled to monitor the progress of teeth whitening and ensure everything is proceeding as expected. If you’ve been experiencing sensitivity, we might prescribe you some gels to reduce this.

Final Assessment
Once your teeth have hit the desired shade of white, we can compare them against your pre-treatment photos and shade. Time to smile when you see your new teeth!

Enlighten whitening is a very common procedure that we’ve done for hundreds of smiling customers. During your consultation with our dentists, don’t be shy about asking us loads of questions about getting your teeth whitened. We’re happiest when you’re at ease and can’t stop grinning at your new smile.

Maintaining and caring for your teeth after Enlighten Whitening

To get the most from your Enlighten whitening, there are some steps you can take to make sure your new teeth stay as white as possible, for as long as possible! We often inform patients to:

Avoid staining foods
Like coffee, red wine, and berries (particularly within the first two or three days).

Avoid smoking
This causes staining and is generally not good for your oral and wider general health.

Maintain good oral hygiene
As you should anyway! Brush twice, floss daily, and see your dentist for regular checkups.

Use a straw
If staining foods are unavoidable, a straw can help minimise contact. Rinsing after eating foods also helps.

With the right aftercare, your Enlighten treatment can last as long as possible, keeping you smiling with confidence! Ask us if there’s anything you’re unsure about.

Other Teeth Whitening treatment options

If Enlighten isn’t for you, there are still plenty of options for teeth whitening that might be more suitable. Check out take home whitening if you’re looking for a professional finish from the comfort of your own home, or if you’re looking to be hands-off and let us take care of things, consider laser teeth whitening for speedy whitening.
