Teeth whitening can be a wonderful way to boost the appearance of your teeth so you no longer have to hide your smile.

At London City Smiles, we have a wealth of experience providing this service and can tailor the shade to whatever tone you like.





The Benefits

We know that throughout our lives, we consume a lot of things that might cause stains to our teeth that will discolour them and maybe leave us feeling embarrassed.

This is no longer a problem, however, because your teeth will be noticeably cleaner and healthier looking thanks to our teeth whitening treatment.

To find out how simple teeth whitening by London City Smiles can be, take the first step by filling out a consultation form.

Enlighten Teeth Whitening

When you have white teeth, your smile beams! A new smile can give you renewed confidence to be yourself and enjoy it. Enlighten is one of the most effective systems on the market to give you a beautifully white smile that’s natural and healthy looking!

Enlighten is an award-winning tooth whitening system that is a guaranteed way of getting the whitest teeth shade you can get – Vita shade B1. Regardless of your starting tooth colour, this whitening procedure will give you the whitest shade possible. It is well-recognised as being one of the safest, long-lasting, and least invasive whitening treatments available!

The Enlighten treatment works by wearing a custom-fitted dental tray (lined with a whitening gel) for 14 consecutive nights. The active ingredient in the gel passes through the surface of your tooth and breaks down stains by chemical oxidation. Enlighten gels have been designed to be one of the most effective whitening solutions, whilst guaranteeing very minimal to zero sensitivity.

“Enlighten is our recommended whitening treatment for those that want to get natural-looking white teeth without the risk of sensitivity.”

Benefits of Enlighten Teeth Whitening

Enlighten whitening treatment is one of the most effective ways to improve the shade of your teeth. The custom-fitted tray and whitening solution are specially designed to guarantee Vita shade B1 (the whitest teeth shade possible), and minimal to zero sensitivity. The active ingredient works beyond the surface of your teeth through chemical oxidation, which dramatically reduces the discomfort you can experience with other whitening treatments.

The effects of Enlighten are long-lasting and provide a brilliantly, bright smile. The multi-sided nature of the process reassures you that you are getting one of the best whitening procedures available. Whiter teeth can give you a rejuvenated confidence to be amongst people and bring a smile to the world!

Our Approach

We understand that you might be self-conscious about your smile, so whatever concerns you might have, feel free to ask our dental professionals.

We aim to provide a uniform shade of teeth that will have you satisfied enough to want to show them off to the world.

Our affordable and careful form of teeth whitening means that they’re accessible to everybody and we can ease any nervousness you might hold around dental appointments.

We always suggest in-surgery whitening for the best results so that no enamel is damaged in the process.

We will invite you to attend an initial appointment, where we will take you through the Enlighten process. This will include taking impressions of your upper and lower teeth sets, which will be used to create a custom-fitted whitening tray. We individually mould your tray to maximise the results of the process and provide comfort throughout your whitening process. Once we have made your tray, we will give you a whitening gel and talk you through the correct way to conduct the rest of your treatment at home.

The Enlighten treatment involves lining your custom-fitted tray with a whitening gel and wearing it for 14 consecutive nights. After this two-week process, we invite you back to have a second appointment. This will include an assessment of your progress and some minor in-surgery treatment with the Enlighten Evolution system. This process will only take up to an hour, after which you will see the incredible results of your whitening process – natural-looking white teeth. This whitening procedure can be supported by using Enlighten toothpaste which strengthens any weakness in the teeth and helps to maintain the whiteness of the enamel.

Before you take your teeth whitening kit home, impressions of your lower and upper teeth will be taken and used as guides for the creation of your tray. All our trays are custom-made in a dental laboratory to make sure they are perfect for you. The original shade of your teeth will also be taken to track the progress of your teeth whitening treatment.

Once the custom tray has been made, we’ll book an appointment at our Islington-based practice where we will give you a step-to-step guide of how to use your kit. This will hopefully give you absolute confidence to perform the treatment at home. You will also be invited back for an appointment after your treatment, so we can assess your teeth whitening results as well as discuss any next steps.

Misshapen Teeth – Irregularly shaped or misshapen teeth can be improved with composite veneers, to bring about a better-looking smile. Discoloured or Stained Teeth – Stains and discolourations on the surface of teeth, especially those that are resistant to teeth whitening procedures, can be addressed with composite veneers. The custom-made shells will be placed on top of the affected teeth to improve the overall appearance.

Enlighten Whitening works by increasing the tooth’s permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. It is a combination treatment meaning that there is a two-week home treatment followed by a one-hour visit to the dentist.

How white will my teeth get?

Enlighten Whitening can whiten up to 16 shades, results vary but if used correctly all teeth will whiten dramatically.

Will they look too white?

No, natural teeth rarely look too white. Sometimes very white crowns can look wrong because they are made of porcelain.

Will my crowns, veneers, or fillings change colour?

No, sometimes you may need to change some of these after whitening.

Is there pain or discomfort?

You may get some sensitivity, however, your dentist will give you easy-to-use desensitising swabs to take home, which will work immediately. You will also receive a tube of Tooth Serum toothpaste to brush with, while you wait for your trays, this also helps with sensitivity.

How long does it take?

Two weeks after your dentist delivers your Enlighten Whitening trays. These are thin and comfortable and must be worn in bed for 14 nights, then on the 15th day you need to see your dentist for the second treatment which takes only 40 minutes.

Is it safe?

Completely, the materials used in Enlighten Whitening have been used in dentistry for over 100 years.

This is how the treatment works

Firstly, a consultation will tell us exactly what you’re after and how white you want to go with your treatment.

Then the dentist will take an impression of your set of teeth which can form a mould that will be fitted during the next appointment.

When you return, you’ll have the mould fitted after a bleaching agent is applied to your teeth. This will stay in your mouth for a while to make sure the process works thoroughly.

At-home kits work similarly but the formula won’t be as strong as the gel available in person at London City Smiles.
