ENLIGHTEN Teeth Whitening FAQ

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 Billericay Dental Care 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 Billericay Dental Care’s patients for years now. The results are impressive. To find out about everything to do with teeth whitening, please call us on 01277 62 54 56 or email us at smiles@billericaydentalcare.co.uk and set up your consultation.

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 Billericay Dental Care, 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.

WHITEWASH Teeth Whitening FAQ

How many appointments will I need?

Two appointments. A consultation where impressions can be taken, should you choose to go ahead, then a fit appointment where you receive your trays and gels.

How does it work?

First, give us a call and ask for an appointment about the WHITEWASH teeth whitening service. We’ll book you in for a 30 minute appointment to assess your suitability for the course and to explain to you what’s involved with the WHITEWASH system and the types of results you can expect. If you and your dentist can both clearly see the benefits of the system for you in that it will deliver the outcomes you wish and that it fits into your lifestyle, we’ll then take impressions of your teeth. Those impressions will be sent to a laboratory who will then manufacturer your one-off, completely customised bleaching trays.

Why can’t I buy WHITEWASH in the shops?

WHITEWASH is not suitable for everyone. As a responsible, caring team of dental care professionals, we need to see if it’s suitable for you first. If it’s not, we’ll explain why.

I’ve run out. How do I re-order?

You can buy WhiteWash top ups when you come in for your routine examinations. Please bring your trays in with you to have them regularly checked.

Is this safe?

100% yes. WHITEWASH’s full range of trays, whitening strips, toothbrushes, maintenance kits, and floss are available to order though Billericay Dental Care. Please call us on 01277 62 54 56 or email us at smiles@billericaydentalcare.co.uk and set up your consultation.
