Cosmetic Dentistry – Teeth Whitening
Teeth Whitening is a dramatic and affordable way to transform your smile. At The Edge Dental, we offer two different types of whitening treatment so you can achieve the beautiful white smile the way that you want to.
As we age, our teeth naturally grow darker through a combination of food and drink staining our teeth and the white enamel wearing away. Whitening leaves a more youthful appearance as we naturally associate a white smile with youth and vigour.
How does whitening work?
Our whitening treatments break down stain particles on your teeth and under the enamel using a safe chemical reaction that releases oxygen. The broken down stains and oxygen safely disintegrate, leaving whiter teeth. Our whitening systems use mouth-trays and a whitening gel which is added into the tray, then worn. The gel gradually lightens your teeth to a whiter shade.
Enlighten is widely acknowledged as the most effective whitening system
in the world. It’s the only one that guarantees a vita shade B1 for every patient and has a 98% success rate.
The Enlighten treatment meets every guideline from all relevant governing bodies, so you can rest assured it is safe, and the health of your teeth won’t be compromised, as it can with other quick-fix whitening systems.
Each treatment starts with a dedicated consultation with your dentist to ensure that it is suitable for you. An accurate impression of your teeth will then be taken and sent off to the Enlighten dedicated lab to create a custom-made sealed tray. In the meantime, you will be provided with a specialist serum toothpaste to use at home, to prepare your teeth for the whitening process.
Enlighten Evolution Whitening is a combination treatment, meaning that there is home treatment followed by a 1 hour visit to the dentist. The home treatment aspect of whitening takes between 2-4 weeks. Your dentist will be able to estimate how long your treatment will take during your initial consultation.

Our popular teeth whitening system lets you whiten your teeth at home, when it’s most convenient for you.
Like all treatments, we start with a dedicated consultation to ensure that it’s right for you.
Our dental professionals will then create a custom whitening tray to perfectly fit the contours of your teeth, ensuring a beautiful even result across your entire smile.
Once your trays are ready, teeth are whitened at home using the unique hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. You can start and stop the programme to suit your schedule, so it doesn’t matter if you miss a day.
Maximum results can be seen in just seven to fourteen days.
