Enlighten whitening is the latest teeth whitening treatment available at Kiln Lane. Find out more.

Lockdown 2.0 is about to start. Which means video chats are set to make a comeback.

Once again, we’re likely to come face-to-face with the reality of our appearance. And if you feel a little bit self-conscious about the shade of your on-screen smile, now is the perfect time to act.

Here at Kiln Lane, we have recently started to offer Enlighten whitening – a world-renowned and revolutionary treatment, guaranteed to create a whiter smile. So, why not find out what all the fuss is about and make sure your pearly whites are ready for online conferences and social gatherings?


How does enlighten whitening work?

Enlighten teeth whitening uses a combination of home and practice-based treatments. Essentially, it works by increasing the tooth’s permeability to oxygen – which breaks down any stain molecules on the surface of the tooth. And to achieve a sparkly whiter smile, three steps are required:


Steps in the Enlighten whitening process


Step 1: An initial consultation

First things first, you’ll need to pop into the dental practice for a consultation. This gives us an opportunity to discuss your ‘dream’ smile and determine your suitability for the procedure. If we think it’s the right teeth whitening option for you, we’ll then take impressions of your teeth.


Step 2: Whitening gel trays

Your impressions are subsequently sent to a lab to create bespoke whitening gel trays.

Designed to be a perfect fit, these trays are incredibly thin and comfortable. They must be worn for 14 consecutive nights using the Enlighten teeth whitening gel provided. And during this time, an active ingredient will pass through the enamel and begin to break down any stains.


Step 3: Final treatment

On the 15th day, you will then need to return to the practice for the second stage of the treatment.

This is a deep ‘power whitening’ session that uses a much stronger tooth whitening gel. As such, it has to be administered by a dental professional. The session itself lasts approximately 40 minutes and it’s designed to boost the shade of your teeth and ensure they’re natural-looking and even.


Why should I choose Enlighten whitening?

The key benefit is that it delivers predictable results. In fact, Enlighten is the only procedure currently available that guarantees a Vita shade B1 for every patient – regardless of their starting shade, age, lifestyle or dietary habits. This is considered the lightest ‘natural’ shade on a dentist’s shade guide – and is around 16 shades lighter than the most common tooth colour (i.e. A1-A3).

Enlighten whitening also has a range of other advantages. For example, it is:

Safe – the gel has a much lower concentration than those used in other teeth whitening procedures. It doesn’t damage the gums or tooth enamel in any way.

Pain-free – both stages of the treatment are painless, and this is the only whitening treatment to create impressive results, without leading to excessive sensitivity.

Fast – it achieves a significantly whiter smile in just two weeks.

Long-lasting – with some very simple home maintenance (e.g. wearing trays once a month, using a tooth serum regularly), the whitening results can last indefinitely.
