At Summertown Dental & Implants in Oxford, we know a nice bright, healthy looking smile can take years off your appearance and really boost your confidence. Teeth whitening offers an affordable and speedy way to achieve this. As you age teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral of the tooth. Teeth can also become stained by dietary habits, such as drinking coffee, tea or red wine.
- We believe it is important that our patients have all the facts before starting the teeth whitening process
- We check to make sure your gums are healthy
- We give you all the facts about the pros and cons of the different whitening treatments that are available
- We offer professional advice on the right shade for you
- Some stubborn stains may need to be removed by our hygienists before starting treatment in order to achieve the desired result
- We inform you about after-care and how to best maintain your new, dazzling smile
For the great majority of patients, teeth whitening at our Oxford dental practice is a very effective treatment. It is considered to be safe and does not cause any damage to teeth structure. The only reported side effect is temporary teeth sensitivity that should diminish after a few days.
Enlighten Teeth Whitening
Enlighten’s Evolution professional teeth whitening treatment is the only system that whitens up to 16 shades easily and safely and will give you a dramatically different look. Summertown Dental & Implants in Oxford are an accredited Enlighten Tooth Whitening Centre.
The system uses state-of-the-art materials which are of such high quality that even the highest gel concentration used is safe on the gums.

What is the Enlighten process?
- First impressions are taken and sent to the Enlighten laboratory who create high quality, bespoke sealed bleaching trays for you.
- This takes about two weeks, during this time you will use their Tooth Serum toothpaste instead of your normal toothpaste. It will improve the final whitening effect and also protect your teeth and reduce and sensitivity.
- Once the bleaching trays are ready you collect them along with your home whitening kit. You will whiten your teeth at home every night for two weeks. Continue using the Tooth Serum toothpaste twice a day.
- Finally you return once more for a 40-minute treatment in the surgery. This final treatment will boost the shade and ensure that the whitening is even and will help the colour last longer.
