As we age, our teeth tend to become yellow and discoloured. Though this is a natural process, yellow teeth can also be caused by caffeine, smoking as well as highly-pigmented foods and drinks. Stained and discoloured teeth are also genetic and affect people with thin tooth enamel, or they may be the result of certain medications.
Whatever the cause behind your yellow teeth, professional teeth whitening can lighten and brighten your teeth to produce a healthier and attractive smile. At Smilecraft in Stevenage, we use the Enlighten teeth whitening system, an innovative treatment that helps whiten your teeth up to 16 shades easily and safely.
What is Enlighten?
Enlighten is a unique teeth whitening system that combines power whitening with home whitening. Initially, your dentist will examine your teeth thoroughly and determine whether you are a good candidate for the treatment. Generally, most people can benefit from the treatment, but patients with sensitive teeth may need to go through a desensitizing treatment first. Once you are cleared, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth that will be sent to a lab for creating your custom trays. These trays will be made specifically for your mouth, therefore, they should fit snugly over your teeth and gums. Your dentist will then show you how to wear them at home.
After two weeks, you will return to the dentist for a one-hour treatment that will boost the new colour of your teeth and ensure that the whitening is seamless.This system guarantees that your teeth will reach their optimum whiteness.
Why opt for Enlighten?
Just like all whitening systems provided by our practice, the Enlighten teeth whitening system is highly reliable and promises uniform results across your smile. It is very convenient to use and does not require any dietary or lifestyle changes. If you are too busy to wear the whitening trays throughout the day, you can always wear them at night. More importantly, Enlighten promises results in as little as two weeks with minimal pain or sensitivity. At the end of the treatment, we will provide you with a maintenance kit that will help you retain the brightness of your teeth for longer.
