Enlighten Teeth Whitening at Smile Stylist

Ages ago I was reading something about people from TOWIE (why I don't know because I don't even watch the programme) and it mentioned that a lot of them had had Enlighten teeth whitening.  I don't normally use TOWIE as my style inspiration but you have to admit they all have really white teeth!

I did a bit more reading about Enlighten whitening and found out it's the only teeth whitening system that guarantees VITA shade B1, the lightest shade on the dental shade scale and quite often people who have the treatment will go off the dental shade scale and onto the whitening scale which is exciting! Check out the before and after gallery here - it's impressive!


I decided to get Enlighten whitening before my wedding in July and was just in the midst of getting together local prices when the lovely people at Smile Stylist in Manchester got in touch. 

Smile Stylist are a cosmetic and private dental practice based in House of Fraser on Deansgate (as well as other nationwide locations).  The practice I visited is really modern, clean and spacious and all the staff that I met were very friendly and helpful.  Quite a few local celebs (Michelle Keegan, Jorgie Porter, Catherine Tyldsley) get their cosmetic dentistry done here so I felt like I was in good company.  The dentist that I saw - Sam Hainsworth - was very knowledgeable, explained things clearly and answered all of my questions, even when I went off track a bit and started asking about braces!

The first step is getting a mould of your teeth made so that they can create some whitening trays that fit your teeth perfectly.  This isn't particularly glamorous but it's straightforward, quick and doesn't hurt or anything.  My trays were ready really quickly so I just popped back a week later to pick them up, get the Enlighten whitening gel and have someone talk me through the process.
The process itself is really easy too, you clean your teeth and then just add a tiny bit of the gel to each 'tooth' section of your whitening trays, pop them in your mouth and leave for 3 hours.  You do this for 14 days.  It wasn't painful or awkward, the first time I used the gel I had a few 'jolts' where it feels like a bit of a 'zing' down your teeth but it wasn't bad. 

My teeth felt quite sensitive from the first treatment with the whitening gel - again, not painful but very aware of the cold air outside on my teeth (which sounds weird) and eating stuff like ice cream was out.  I slept with my trays in a few nights, mainly if I hadn't got in until late on, and I did find that this increased my sesitivity the next day.  They also recommend you avoid eating or drinking 'anything that would stain a white shirt' which includes stuff like tea, coffee and beetroot for 24 hours after a treatment which is no biggie.  The sensitivity goes away after about 24 hours which I thought was good news.

I was really pleased with the results, and I felt like my teeth looked whiter 2-3 days in.  I plan to get a top up done near my wedding so my teeth are extra blingy in the photos!

Here's my results in photographs - neither of these photographs have been edited (other than cropped), I'm just wearing a different lipstick in the after photo.  My skin in both pics is the same colour which is testament to how much the colour of my teeth has improved.  So impressed with the difference as it's hard to tell when you're scrutinising your teeth each day!

I'd thoroughly recommend Englighten teeth whitening at Smile Stylist, I found the whole process really straightforward, the staff put me at ease from start to finish and I think the difference in my teeth says it all really.  So pleased!

  22. Thank you for taking the time to write out this post and give your own personal review! Whitening your teeth at home seems like a great idea and way to save time. I have personally always gone to the dental office to have my teeth whitened and I have had great success with doing it this way and continuing to do it as well.

  23. I loved reading your post. My husband and I have been interested in getting a teeth whitening treatment done. Wanted to ask our family dentist what he recommends and if he was willing to do it for a reasonable price. Glad to see you were happy with the outcome. Things are always better when you have a bright smile. Thanks.

  24. That is a pretty significant difference. I never believe that whitening my teeth would make a different. I ended up winning a free whitening session and I did not want to waste it. So I went down and got the whitening. After, I went to a party and when I saw the pictures the next day, I couldn't believe it.
