How many shades?

One sure fire way to give your smile a great big lift out of the doldrums is to brighten it up with teeth whitening. If you have never had your teeth whitened, you will be surprised at what a difference getting the staining removed can make.

Enlighten Teeth Whitening in StevenageWhere does all that staining come from?

Even though they look pretty solid, the enamel on your teeth is porous, which means that traces of colour can get down into it when you eat or drink certain highly pigmented foods. Tea, red wine and coffee are particular culprits, as are dark berries and also those fabulous red curries. And of course, tobacco can really stain your teeth.

Even though you may be a diligent brusher and flosser and go to get your teeth cleaned by the hygienist twice a year, over the years that staining can build up to take away that pearly white gleam that we associate with youth and health. And, of course, the years too affect your teeth. Brushing slowly thins the enamel and then the yellower dentin below it can be seen through it, and this makes teeth look less white too.

Bring your teeth back to life

At Smilecraft, Enlighten teeth whitening in Stevenage is a take-home whitening system that doesn’t just slightly lighten your teeth, it can do so until your teeth reach a shade called B1, which is the whitest shade of white there is for natural-looking teeth. This could mean lightening your teeth by as much as 16 shades. That’s quite a transformation.

Your choice of venue

You have a choice of where you get your teeth whitened, and how. We can do it for you in the clinic or you can buy one of our take-home kits and do it for yourself at home at your own convenience and in a way that is more gradual, which many people who don’t want to draw undue attention to themselves prefer.

In the clinic, the treatment takes about an hour because we can use a stronger gel to whiten your teeth. You just sit back and relax and let us do the work for you.
