Diet, age, and genetics can all lead to unattractive, yellow teeth. Whitening is a fantastic way to brighten your teeth with no damage, leaving you with a confident, glowing smile.

Everyone wants a bright, happy smile. Your smile is the first thing that many people see when they meet you.

They’re also a window on your general health. How your teeth look can reveal signs of tiredness, illness, infection, or nutritional deficiencies.


If your teeth look great and you feel great about the way they look, you won’t be so reticent about smiling because you don’t want people to see their discolouration. The more you smile, the more people take notice of you. It makes you look happy and who doesn’t want to spend time with someone who’s happy, lively, confident, and caring?

At Burnham Dental Practice, we know the importance of oral hygiene and the difference that feeling confident about your smile and yourself makes. No-one works harder than our team at making sure you get absolutely everything you want from your teeth whitening treatments.


That’s why, year after year, we’re privileged to welcome an ever increasing number of patients to our practice. When you choose our teeth whitening service, we can promise you the following

The Enlighten System entails collaboration between our dentist and patients. Here is how the procedure works.

  • The patient will undergo an initial consultation that will assess the condition of his or her discoloured teeth.

  • After assessment, the patient will apply a whitening gel for two weeks.

  • The patient comes back to our practice for a comprehensive cleaning and a forty-minute application of a concentrated gel.

Our teeth whitening procedure can last for six months, depending on the lifestyle and eating habits of the patient. The original stained colour, however, is unlikely to return.

Achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile with our teeth whitening services. For more details, contact us today.

How many appointments will I need?

You’ll have your Enlighten consultation initially, coming back two weeks later to collect your home whitening kits. For the next two weeks, you follow the instructions contained in your Enlighten package and then returning for a one-hour in-surgery whitening appointment.

How does this work?

No local anaesthetic is required. You won’t feel any discomfort or pain from your treatment.

You’ll work with a fully qualified dentist or dental assistant throughout the process.

At the consultation, we’ll check to make sure that the Enlighten system is suitable for you. We’re there to explain the system, how it works, and to find out exactly what it is you want to achieve.

If you and your dentist agree that this is the treatment for you we’ll take an impression of your teeth. We’ll then send that off to Enlighten’s dedicated and state-of-the-art laboratory. The technicians there will produce a set of custom-made and super-sealed whitening trays.

Over the course of 14 days, you use these trays to begin the home whitening process using the Enlighten teeth whitening gel.

Finally, you visit us again at Burnham Dental Practice for a one-hour long in-surgery whitening treatment

Is this safe?

Yes. It’s completely safe and produces what we consider to be amazingly natural-looking results. Enlighten whitening treatment works straight through the enamel and does not harm the tooth surface, although you may have sensitivity as a side-affect from this product.

How long before I need a top-up?

Results can last indefinitely with very simple maintenance and top-ups.


The Enlighten system has been pleasing Burnham Dental Care’s patients for years now. The results are impressive.
