Be Enlightened In Sutton

Dentists can offer you a range of treatments to put the ‘glitz’ back in your mouth, from bleaching to laser treatments. Some of these however can be a little harsh, and may not be suitable for you, depending how delicate your teeth are.  How do you fancy getting your teeth whitened, gently, whilst you are sleeping at night? You do? Well then pop along to your dentists and get yourself measured up for a fairly new treatment that has set the dental world talking, Enlighten tooth whitening. This treatment can attack the deepest of stains and leave your mouth looking a million dollars. The dentist first takes an impression of your mouth, from which two bespoke trays are made that are water tight. Then you go home and when you’re ready to retire for the evening, you fill the trays with the bleaching agent, slot them over your teeth and then go to sleep. During the treatment, you must be sure to avoid staining foods and drinks and clean your teeth with whitening toothpaste. This process is repeated for two weeks until the process is complete. Then it’s back to the dentist for a quick bleaching treatment and you go out into the world smiling like a Hollywood star. In time, depending on your lifestyle, you may require a top-up now and then, but the affects of the treatment leave the teeth looking beautifully translucent and natural.
