Teeth Whitening

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a quick and safe way to refresh and transform your smile, resulting in a healthy and more youthful appearance. Treatment is pain-free, convenient and results can be seen from the first application.

Enlighten Teeth Whitening

At Panshanger Dental Practice, we use Enlighten teeth whitening. It’s a simple, safe and affordable whitening system that promises a whiter smile with long-lasting results. Enlighten is popular due to low sensitivity and natural-looking results. We recommend home whitening as it allows us to keep an eye on the results. It also promises an even and natural-looking finish.

We create bespoke mouth trays for the whitening gel using impressions of your own mouth. These trays are worn every night for two-four weeks, with you adding the Enlighten gel into the tray.

We will show how best to prepare the trays. Once the two week are finished, we check on the finish. As you get to keep the mouth trays, you can top up when you want when the results start to fade.

We offer Enlighten for £535!

Why do our teeth discolour?

Over time, our teeth naturally start to discolour. This is a part of the ageing process and it happens to everyone.

There are a number of reasons for this; often it is simply down to lifestyle and the effects of consuming dark food and drink items (coffee, tea, red wine and berries) over long periods of time.

Activities such as smoking stain the teeth from white to more of a yellow or grey. Darkening of the teeth can also be caused by damage to a tooth or the long-term use of certain medications.

No matter how well you look after your teeth, it is impossible to stop this colour change because stains build on the inside, as well as on the outside, of the teeth. Therefore, no amount of brushing or scaling and polishing by the hygienist will stop it.
