Enlighten Teeth Whitening at American Smile

Enlighten is widely acknowledged as the most effective whitening system in the world. It gives guaranteed results with very low sensitivity and relies on expert technique so, for optimal results, you are closely guided through the entire procedure by your dentist.

There a number of clear benefits of Enlighten whitening over other systems:


  • Enlighten guarantees a shade of Vita B1 or lighter to 98% of patients (this is an extremely light shade, at the top of the whitening scale).
  • For 95% of patients, this shade is achieved within 2 weeks.
  • No diet change is required throughout the whitening process, or afterwards.
  • The effects last indefinitely.
  • It has a lower sensitivity than other whitening products.
  • Patients can achieve a lighter shade more quickly, when compared to other whitening products.
  • Enlighten whitening treatment works straight through the enamel and does not harm the tooth surface.

The main disadvantage of the system is that is costs more because the trays, gels and materials required for Enlighten are much more expensive than other systems.

Also, because there is a strict procedural protocol that must be followed to achieve the best results with Enlighten, it requires three surgery visits to complete.

Enlighten Teeth Whitening Process

At the first visit...
impressions are taken and we provide you with the Enlighten tooth serum. This will help to reduce any possible sensitivity problems during treatment and produce a more even and longer-lasting whitening result.

At the next appointment...
approximately 10 days later - we fit your whitening trays and carry out in-surgery desensitising. You then whiten at home for 14 consecutive nights before returning for your final in-surgery session. For some, more difficult, cases, you may require a longer period of home whitening (up to 28 nights) - your dentist will inform you if this is true for you. Very special instructions are given to you at this appointment, and it is crucial you follow these carefully to ensure optimal whitening.

At the third and final appointment...
gel is applied by your dentist in the surgery. This is chemically activated gel, so no light is required. This appointment lasts approximately one hour, and is the point when your teeth reach the desired shade. These results are designed to last indefinitely, although certain upkeep is required to ensure this. For example, in year one you will need to whiten overnight for a single night every two months, followed by one night every four months in year two, and every six months in year three. It is also recommended you continue to use Enlighten toothpaste to maintain the results.
