The Enlighten Evolution process involves an initial visit to 33 Dental Practice, during which your dentist will take impressions (‘moulds’) of your teeth and send them to the Enlighten Laboratory. Within two weeks, the lab will use these moulds to produce trays that fit comfortably and securely over your upper and lower teeth.
An important part of the Evolution treatment plan is the use of Enlighten’s speciality Tooth Serum. This toothpaste helps to clean the surface of your teeth thoroughly, repair damage to your tooth enamel, minimise white spots and reduce sensitivity during the 2 weeks before your treatment. The company also recommends continuing to use Tooth Serum to help maintain your results.
Once your Enlighten Evolution whitening trays are ready, your dentist will provide you with full and detailed instructions on how to use the product at home. You will place the gel into your whitening tray and wear them overnight for 14 nights.
Once you’ve completed your course of at-home whitening treatment, you will return to the practice for a follow-up appointment with your dentist. They will apply a booster treatment to enhance your results even further.
Maintenance is low, usually patients require one night of whitening at home every 2 months.
Enlighten Evolution is a low-risk way of achieving fantastic whitening results through whitening at home and in the dentist’s chair.
We will carry out a full assessment before prescribing a whitening treatment to ensure you’re suitability for the product. When used with the Enlighten Evolution whitening tray, the treatment poses no risk to your oral health.
Enlighten Evolution teeth whitening system uses a formula, which makes it more suitable for patients who experience sensitivity.
We advise that you hang on to your Enlighten Evolution whitening tray after your treatment finishes. You can purchase whitening gel refills from 33 Dental if you would like to repeat the procedure in the future.
Enlighten also provide a range of maintenance products you can purchase from us. The Enlighten Evolution Tooth Serum delivers a glossy sheen to your teeth while repairing damaged enamel and helping to minimise white spots and sensitivity.
We can also offer our patients Enlighten’s Evo White toothpaste, which removes stains and plaque, helping to maintain whitening results for as long as possible.
On average, Enlighten teeth whitening produces results that will last up to around 3 years before you need a top up.
Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.
Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.
From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.
Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.
We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.
This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
