It’s been a couple weeks since I blogged about my foray into professional teeth whitening. If you remember I signed up for Enlighten treatment at Smile Stylist in House of Fraser Manchester.

My moulds took about seven days before they were ready for collection and they came with two syringes full of carbomide peroxide (which needs to be kept in the fridgefridge.)

The first stage of the process is pretty straight-forward:

1.Brush your teeth
2.Apply a small amount of gel to each tooth area in the mould
3.Press mould firmly against teeth and leave for one hour
4.When complete, rinse thoroughly.

I’ve heard rumours about how uncomfortable this can be and how sensitive your teeth are afterwards. Fortunately I’ve experience neither of these side effects. In fact, the only thing I’ve found bothersome is not drinking red wine for two weeks!

After the first session my teeth looked instantly whiter. I continued to notice small improvements for the first few days but then it seemed to plateau. I’m now ready for the final stage, which takes place at the dentist’s and uses a laser to really get those teeth glowing white.

Once this is complete I’ll post some lovely before and after pictures. BetBet you can’t wait eh?
