During the initial consultation, your dentist will assess the patient's suitability for the Enlighten whitening treatment.

Your dentist will then take a mould of your teeth to ensure a secure and comfortable fit during the at-home whitening.

This step is vital to ensure the success of the treatment.

Commonly Asked Questions

How long do you wear Enlighten trays?

The trays are to be worn for overnight, every night for two weeks - unless directed otherwise by your dentist.

We recommend wearing them at night so the wearer will be less likely to eat, drink, or talk.

The activities can dilute the whitening gel and affect the result.

It is essential to wear the trays as directed by your dentist to achieve optimal results.

Does Enlighten damage your teeth?

Enlighten whitening is gentle on teeth and does not cause damage.

The active ingredient in the gel is carbamide peroxide, which is specially formulated to be gentle on the teeth and gums.

How long does Enlighten last?

Enlighten whitening treatment is a long-lasting solution for teeth whitening.

The treatment can last for years; however, it might require an occasional top-up to maintain the results.

Can you drink coffee during Enlighten?

Yes, with Enlighten Whitening, you do not need to modify your diet or focus on non-staining foods.

But it would be best if you did not drink anything while wearing the trays.

Can I drink water with Enlighten trays in?

Drinking water while wearing the trays is inadvisable.

The liquid could dilute the whitening gel if you drink while wearing the trays.

Can you use Enlighten during the day?

Yes, you can use the trays during the day. The trays are custom-made to fit your teeth, so they should not be uncomfortable.

Because the trays are transparent, they are discrete and should not be noticeable.

However, for the best result, we recommend whitening overnight.

How long does it take for Enlighten to work?

The treatment typically takes two weeks to achieve optimal results.

The at-home treatment is designed to remove stains and whiten the teeth, and the in-office treatment can lighten teeth by several shades in just one visit.

Can you miss a day on Enlighten?

We recommend wearing the trays as the dentist directs to achieve optimal results.

Missing a day or two will not ruin the treatment, but it's best to follow the instructions to achieve the best results.

The more consistent you are with your whitening, the better your outcome will be. If you miss a day, you will have to make it up.

How often can you use Enlighten teeth whitening?

We recommended topping up the treatment occasionally to maintain the whiteness of the teeth and prevent discolouration.

After the initial whitening procedure, use should be minimal to keep your desired shade.

Can aged yellow teeth be whitened?

Yes, you can whiten aged yellow teeth with Enlighten whitening treatment.

The treatment effectively removes deep-set stains and discolouration, leaving patients with a brighter, more confident smile.

In extreme cases, it can take up to four or five weeks of home whitening.

Is Enlighten whitening better than laser teeth whitening?

Enlighten whitening is more precise, gentle, and long-lasting than laser teeth whitening.

It is best to consult with a dentist to determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs.

Is enlighten whitening available near me?

Yes! We provide Enlighten whitening in each of our three clinics - Dublin, Limerick and Galway.

Is there typically any pain or discomfort during the Enlighten whitening process?

Patients generally experience minimal to no pain or discomfort during the Enlighten whitening process.

The procedure is gentle and well-tolerated.

In rare extreme cases, some individuals with heightened sensitivity may experience temporary tooth sensitivity or gum irritation, which can be managed with desensitising gels or other recommended methods.

Are there any situations in which this treatment doesn’t work?

While Enlighten whitening is a highly effective treatment, there are a few situations where this treatment may not yield the desired results.

Your dentist can advise if the Enlighten treatment is a suitable option for you.

If it is not, we may recommend alternative cosmetic procedures like veneers or bonding.

What is the difference between a B1 and A1 shade? Is A1 shade possible/realistic for most patients?

The difference between a B1 and A1 shade lies in the colour intensity and undertones of the teeth.

A B1 shade is slightly brighter and cooler in tone compared to an A1 shade, which has a warmer appearance.

The Enlighten whitening treatment guarantees the patient will achieve a B1 shade.
