What is the Difference Between Enlighten and Enlighten Evolution 3?

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016
Q.

Hi Dr Andrew, hope you are well. What is the difference between Enlighten Whitening and Enlighten Evolution 3 Whitening? I know with Evolution 3 you get the in-surgery appointment on the 15th day, but does this really make a big difference to results generally, as there is a significant difference in price? And do teeth sometimes go whiter than a B1 shade? I’ve heard they can do depending on natural colour of teeth?

Many thanks in advance.

What is the Procedure for Teeth Whitening?

Friday, March 20th, 2015
Q.

I am interested in having my teeth whitened. I’m a non smoker and have good oral hygiene. I have also got one crown which is 5th from my front tooth, I’m under the impression that will not change in colour, is that right? What is the procedure and the success rate? Also, is it a fixed price or is the price dependent on the discolouration? What are the options for teeth whitening, is it done over a period of time or as a one off? Thank you.

Which is Better: Zoom! or Enlighten Whitening?

Thursday, February 19th, 2015
Q.

Hello! Just a quick question about 2 tooth whitening systems. Now my dentist is about to whiten my teeth, and he uses the Philips Zoom! Nite White system. However, I am questioning whether this system is as good as the Enlighten Deep Bleaching system. I was wondering if you could give me the ins and outs of both, as although I do trust my dentist, I accept that he may be biased towards the system he uses. Any advice on these 2 systems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Is It Possible To Wear The Home Tooth Whitening Kits During The Day? I Have Problems Wearing My Trays During The Day.

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I am in my sixties and have had Zoom done with no noticeable results. I would not be happy with very white teeth, so my question is: is it possible to use Enlighten just in my home to my desired level of whiteness? I have problems wearing my trays at night, so could I do it for just an hour during the day?

If this is not possible, in your opinion, what is the best at home bleaching product for using during the day please? Thank you.

My Teeth Are Discoloured And This Bothers Me. What Are My Best Affordable Options For This?

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014
Q.

My teeth are not the best they are not straight but I don’t mind that but they are very discoloured from medication as a child. My dentist says I have very good health teeth but the colour bothers me so much that I very rarely go out and when I do I try wear something that covers my mouth. I haven’t been in a photo in 2 years because I’m to ashamed of what my teeth look like. And the worst thing I do is mumble a lot so that people don’t see my teeth as I’m talking. It has been a few years now that they have been discoloured and it really effects my confidence when going anywhere because I always think that people are looking at my teeth and talking behind my back about it saying look at his teeth if you don’t brush yours they will turn out like that even though I do brush and floss. I work full time in a call centre so that no one can see my teeth. I do have a okay wage but no where near enough to afford thousands of pounds or all new teeth. So is there anything that could be done through the NHS or anything else?

I Am Currently Receiving Enlighten Whitening. Should I Be Get Treatment Prior To Using The Dental Whitening Trays?

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hi there Dr Moore. I am currently receiving the enlighten whitening treatment.
I expected some work before I used the trays, but all my dentist did was show me how much of the product to put in my trays before I fit them at night.
Is this correct?
I have been told I will receive an hours appointment at the end of the 2 week treatment.
Should the teeth not be cleaned properly before hand?
I had a clean 2 weeks before after my check up but the hygienist only scraped my teeth (private clean)
There were some brown marks left on my teeth after the clean, which the dentist said was permanent scarring?(I have scraped some of this off myself)
Many thanks.

I Want To Know How Well The Enlighten Deep Cleaning System Works And Whether It Affects Thin Enamel?

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013
Q.

Hello, Dr Moore, I have quite a few questions I need to ask you about the enlighten deep bleaching system. Does the enlighten deep bleaching system work on patients with thinning enamel? Also could you tell me how well does it bleaches dentine? Will they experience more sensitivity? How much change should a patient expect to see in the final hours session within the surgery? If teeth are not very white by this stage, will it have a significant effect? Thank you, I hope you can provide me with an answer.

Which Teeth Whitening Method Is Best Following Crown Replacement?

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013
Q.

I am having my two front teeth crowns replaced, and i have just had the temporary ones put in. I would like to go very white, I need my teeth whitening then i am going to have my crowns put in to match the new white teeth. What is best for me to do? will I get good results from in surgery lazer teeth whitening? as I know laws have changed in the past month and the chemicals used are not as strong, or would a home kit be better? if a home kit would be better should i still receive this from my dentist or purchase another online because i’ve seen some good whitening deals. I would like it done as soon as possible for my wedding in January. Any advice would be great, thank you very much.

I’m suffering from great pain after receiving the Enlighten whitening treatment, when will the pain subside?

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012
Q.

Hi Dr Moore, can you answer my question for me? Just started using enlighten and after only the second day I am getting like electric shock pain in two teeth – one top and one bottom at front. I have never had pain like this before and whilst i expected sensitivity these pains are short but so unbelievably painful. I’ve been rubbing the de-sensitizer toothpaste on these teeth all day in work and it hasn’t stopped these intermittent pains. No one told me this could happen and I went to a dentist that specialises in whitening with a good reputation and paid £500 for this treatment. I don’t know if I can carry on – will it stay the same, get worse and last after treatment – can you help.
thanks

Did treatment on son’s teeth make white spots even worse?

Friday, April 27th, 2012
Q.

My 20 year old son has white spots on both permanent front teeth since a child. I thought it came because of a preventative antibiotic he was given for 15 months as a two year old for ear infections. The dentist just did microabrasion on them one month ago. It faded a little but the white spots are still there. He ask the dentist yesterday if he could use the white crest strips and he said that would be fine. He started last evening and today the white spots are so white. Because of the microabrasion did this make the white spots worse because the enamel isn’t there as much and is more open and the whitening from the strips filled in. Thanks, mother is concerned.
