Enlighten is an innovative form of teeth whitening which uses ¼ less hydrogen peroxide than normal whitening methods in order to minimise sensitivity, while still taking your teeth to their brightest natural shade.
Sound too good to be true? Well, the science behind the new treatment is that it increases the tooth's permeability to oxygen which helps to break down stubborn stains.
The at-home treatment lasts for two weeks. This requires you to wear the clear moulds, filled with whitening gel, overnight. After the first week, you swap to a stronger gel to see the even brighter results. Whitening could be seen from very early on, but some sensitivity was felt despite the claims particularly with the stronger gel.
After a fortnight of treatment at home, a 40-minute in-surgery session is required where moulds are worn with an even stronger application of gel. A very effective de-sensitiser was available on request before starting.
Does it work? Yes, without a doubt teeth were brighter without getting a 'Ross-from-friends' unnatural neon glow, but be prepared for some discomfort. Also, be aware that there are a lot of banned foods while undergoing treatment including tea, coffee, red wine, anything tomato-based and curry.
Bespoke moulds, home whitening and in-surgery session from £450. We trialled this treatment at the Harley Street Dental Surgery. Visit Enlightensmiles.com for details of nationwide treatment options.

Here's my results in photographs - neither of these photographs have been edited (other than cropped), I'm just wearing a different lipstick in the after photo. My skin in both pics is the same colour which is testament to how much the colour of my teeth has improved. So impressed with the difference as it's hard to tell when you're scrutinising your teeth each day!
