Why should I whiten my teeth?

Many people whiten their teeth for different reasons, but the most common reasons include:

  • To increase self-esteem and self-confidence
  • To give positive first impressions
  • To improve the smile aesthetics for a special event such as graduation or wedding
  • To give a more youthful appearance
  • To reverse yellowing of the teeth and remove stains

Enlighten teeth whitening procedure

Enlighten teeth whitening requires three visits to the dentist.

First visit

On the first dental visit, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are suitable for Enlighten teeth whitening. If you are, the dentist will take your teeth impression using an Enlighten impression material. Your dentist will send the dental impressions to the lab for the technician to make your bleaching trays.

This usually takes about two weeks. While you wait for the bleaching trays, your dentist will recommend desensitising toothpaste, which you would use twice daily. The toothpaste contains hydroxyapatite (HAP), which makes up 97% of the teeth enamel. HAP helps improve the effectiveness of your whitening treatment and reduces the risk of sensitivity.

Second visit

On your next appointment, your dentist will provide you with the Enlighten whitening trays and the teeth whitening gel which you would use at night for the next 14 days.

Third visit

Your next visit will involve 40-minute in-chair teeth whitening session. You would need to bring your whitening trays to this appointment.

This final whitening session can boost your teeth colour, make the result of your treatment natural-looking and last longer.


If you have sensitive teeth, your dentist may provide you with an anti-sensitive toothpaste, such as Sensodyne and Colgate. These toothpaste can also help reduce the discomfort most people experience after teeth whitening treatment.

What are the side effects of Enlighten teeth whitening?

Enlighten teeth whitening treatment is safe, non-invasive and effective. It is a common method for achieving whiter and natural-looking teeth. However, some patients experience sensitivity during Enlighten teeth whitening.

You can use anti-sensitive toothpaste to prevent sensitivity and follow your dentist’s instruction to achieve the best possible result.

Can Enlighten teeth whitening treatment whiten my previous fillings, crown or veneer?

Enlighten teeth whitening can only improve the shade of your natural teeth. It doesn’t whiten any dental restoration, such as fillings, crowns, or veneers. Ensure you have a dental restoration that matches your desired teeth shade or change the restoration after your whitening treatment.

How long will the effect of an Enlighten teeth whitening treatment last?

An upside of Enlighten teeth whitening treatment is that it lasts for a long time. However, you need periodic top-ups at home. Ensure you keep your whitening treatment safe to re-use for top-ups.

Enlighten teeth whitening guarantees you B1 teeth shade after the treatment if you follow the instructions provided. If you do not achieve B1 teeth shade, Enlighten will refund you the laboratory costs and the cost of the treatment, but not your dentist’s consultation fee.
