Enlighten Whitening: facts, benefits and drawbacks

Tooth discoloration, often resulting from habits like smoking, ageing, and the consumption of certain foods and drinks, can impact the aesthetics of your smile and dent your confidence, particularly in situations when you need to smile a lot or talk in public. Enlighten tooth whitening is a professional treatment that combats this issue and restores the natural whiteness of your teeth. It offers a comprehensive solution that includes custom trays, tooth serum, and sensitivity gels, and is tailored according to your specific needs.

Enlighten is a safe and highly effective option that doesn't require dietary restrictions and ensures long-lasting results with proper maintenance. Read our blog to find out why Enlighten whitening is a safe way to a brighter smile.

The benefits of Enlighten whitening treatment include:

  • Fast and effective whitening formula provides long-lasting results without the need for lifestyle changes.
  • The system guarantees amazing teeth whitening results in 98% of cases.
  • Enlighten is a lifestyle-friendly system that doesn't require dietary changes.
  • The whitening process can be done while relaxing, with guaranteed results and no compromises necessary. 

The potential drawbacks of choosing Enlighten include:

  • It can be more expensive than other teeth whitening systems.
  • It may require several visits to complete your treatment.
  • During treatment you need to avoid certain foods and drinks that may cause staining such as red wine, coffee and tomato-based sauces.

Zoom Whitening: facts, benefits and drawbacks

Philips Zoom teeth whitening is a quick and efficient treatment for discoloured teeth caused by habits like smoking and drinking red wine or coffee. It offers two options: in-practice same-day whitening for immediate results and deep discoloration, and at-home whitening for convenience with noticeable results in as little as a few days. Zoom whitening can lighten teeth up to 6 shades, with the longevity of results depending on your lifestyle choices.  Read our blog to get the lowdown on Zoom whitening and find out whether it is the right treatment for you.

The benefits of Zoom teeth whitening include:

  • Whitening results can be observed in less time than your lunch break.
  • Zoom offers in-practice or take-home professional whitening treatments tailored by our dentists.
  • Visibly whiter smile after just 3 days of twice-daily use.
  • Custom whitening trays ensure the perfect fit.
  • Philips Zoom! has been used by over four million patients.

The potential drawbacks of Zoom treatment include:

  • The whitening products can sometimes irritate gums or leave you with sensitive teeth.
  • A checkup is required before whitening to get the best results.
  • The product can only be bought through a dentist - though we see this as an advantage because it ensures you don’t damage your teeth and gums and get the best possible results.

Both Enlighten and Zoom are professional treatments that should be supervised by dental experts to ensure safety and effectiveness. Regular dental check-ups and a proper cleaning routine can help maintain the results.

Now that we have provided you with some basic information on each whitening system you should be in a better position to make a decision about which is right for you.
