Consent For Enlighten Whitening

The Evolution3 whitening procedure is a state-of-the-art treatment designed to whiten the teeth to their optimum natural brightness.

The amount of whitening varies from patient to patient and cannot be predicted exactly, Results can be further improved if used in conjunction with Enlighten teeth whitening trays. All dentist’s instructions must be followed closely.

Alternatives to tooth whitening: If you would like whiter teeth there are several other options available

• Scale & Polish or Air Abrasion – will only remove surface staining
• Veneers and Crowns – involve shaving of tooth enamel and replacing with porcelain, but can change the shape as well as the colour of the smile

1- Transient tooth sensitivity may develop during treatment and your dentist may give you desensitising swabs
2- Temporary inflammation or white spots on your gums may be caused by the whitening procedure. These can cause short lived discomfort which resolves within a few hours.
3- Occasionally patchy white areas occur which equalize within 2 – 3 days.
4- Porcelain restorations such as crowns or veneers as well as white fillings will not change colour and may need to be replaced after the whitening procedure.


1. Whitening trays are precision moulded to your mouth; you must treat them with care. Do not bend the trays when not in use, store them passively in the tray case and only wash them with cold water.

2. Whitening trays must be worn all night for 14 days. (In some cases, treatment may take longer – please consult your dentist).


Teeth will only whiten sufficiently where there is good thickness of enamel. In cases of Tetracycline staining or Fluorosis mottling staining there will be limitations to the level of whitening – please consult your dentist.

The results can be maintained with 1 night’s tray wear every 1 to 2 months.

Allergic Reactions

Allergic reactions are extremely rare. Extra Caution must be taken when using the Evo Seal desensitizing swabs by using only on the tooth areas. Contact with the gums or lips can cause redness and swelling of the lips in very few cases. In the event of an allergic reaction stop the treatment completely and wash mouth with cold water and consult your dentist.
