Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened.
Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that can change the color of your natural tooth enamel and enhance the beauty of your smile.
Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.
More than 100,000 people get teeth whitening treatment in the UK every year.
There are a number of ways to whiten teeth. You’ve probably seen tons of over-the-counter whitening products at your local medical store, from whitening toothpastes to rinses to whitening strips and other types of DIY at-home treatments.
Teeth whitening carried out in beauty salons by untrained staff or staff without dental qualifications puts your oral health at risk and is also illegal.
The single most effective and safe way to whiten teeth is with a professional teeth whitening session in your dentist’s practice.
Enlighten Premium Teeth Whitening

Frequently Asked Questions for Enlighten Teeth Whitening
How white will my teeth get?
Enlighten Whitening can whiten up to 16 shades. Results vary, but if used correctly all teeth will whiten dramatically. Natural teeth rarely look too white. Sometimes very white crowns can look wrong because they are made of porcelain.
Will my crowns, veneers or fillings change colour?
No, sometimes you may need to change some of these after whitening.
Is it safe? Is there any pain?
It is completely safe. The materials used in Enlighten Whitening have been used in dentistry for over 100 years. You may get some sensitivity, however your dentist will give you easy to use desensitising swabs to take home, which will work immediately. You will also receive a tube of Tooth Serum toothpaste to brush with while you wait for your trays. This also helps with sensitivity.
How long does it take? How long does it last?
Two weeks after the dentist delivers your Enlighten Whitening trays. These are thin and comfortable and must be worn in bed for 14 nights. Then on the 15th day you need to see us for the second treatment, which takes only 40 minutes.
Results can last indefinitely with some very simple maintenance. Wearing the trays for 1 night every other month. Continuing to brush with Tooth Serum Toothpaste will also prolong results.
Investment ranges from £395 (Home Whitening) to £595 (Premium Enlighten Whitening).
I have always been insecure about my teeth which is why I couldn’t be any happier with the work of Dr Manish at Dental Concepts! Dr. Manish has worked his magic and my teeth are now whiter, straighter and have no gaps! Not only is his work amazing, he is always extremely friendly and welcoming which is why I would highly recommend him to anyone! 🤩
I’m super thrilled with my new look and of all the cosmetic treatments available these days. I can honestly say this has made me the happiest. I feel completely different. From start to finish the whole journey has been totally surreal! I’m super thrilled with Dr Manish and the amazing job he’s done! I’d seen his work and knew he was an expert, but this result had surpassed all my expectations. What an investment this is! I can honestly say with hand on heart that for all the cosmetic treatments available, this has to be the absolute best ever!
At first wearing the braces felt strange and alien but I got used to them in about 10 days. They are discrete and comfortable and I don’t feel self-conscious at all. I would recommend them highly!
Excellent service and thanks for a lovely looking smile 😃 Xx
Being a photographer, I am constantly directing the shots. And making my clients feel at ease with a warm smile goes without saying. So after my front tooth broke for a second time this week the amazing Kass Verjee recommended Dr Manish Chitnis (thanks again Kass). Dr. Manish fitted me in on short notice and an hour after meeting I walked out of his office with a big, beautiful smile. I cannot express my gratitude.
Had an implant fitted and cannot be more happier with my wellbeing & confidence – Superb service! 😀 Great team Xx
I had a mini smile make-over at Dental Concepts in Andover and all of my appointments were relaxed considering the amount of work I was having done. Such a lovely comfortable environment and the staff are so lovely and caring, nothing was rushed and all of the work was done to 100% satisfaction. Would thoroughly recommend this surgery.
After spending many an evening reading reviews of dentists in the Hampshire area I came across Dental Concepts. I had considered getting veneers for many years but never gone ahead with it, but after reading reviews and visiting the Dental Concept website I decided to book myself in for a consultation. I am now so thankful that I did! From the first visit till the end of my treatment the staff and Manish could not have been nicer.
I was extremely surprised to be in and out of the dentist chair within 1.5 hours. The service was completely professional and quick. I was explained each procedure as we went along. There was no pain at all. I went in for 2 implants and here I am the evening after, feeling nothing at all. The surgery even phoned me this afternoon to see how I was feeling. All the staff were amazing. I would definitely recommend Dental Concepts.
I would highly recommend Dental Concepts ( Andover), I have been in receipt of ongoing dental work since October 2020, the attention I have received has always been first class.

Very very happy with the service received. I had the Invisalign treatment and nothing but professional service and the after care is even better. Couldn’t be happier and have recommended to everyone I know!!!
What a brilliant experience I had with Dental Concept. I would definitely recommend them. I had a hygienist appointment today and my teeth looks amazing. Thank you

I am so very glad that I engaged with Dental Concepts. My teeth looked awful; therein this often shattered my confidence but I did not want the perfect, totally straight, pristine solution…. quite the opposite, I simply wanted a dental solution that would bring back my former, natural and healthy appearance. Dental Concepts call that vision your new ‘smile’ and I can wholeheartedly say that my new ‘smile’ is absolutely fantastic, totally natural-looking and has brought back a new lease of confidence.
I would highly recommend this dental practice I had been suffering from tooth pain for the last few months I contacted my NHS dentist Several times, but due to COVID -19 lockdown and they were unable to see me. My pain became unbearable this week. I contacted my dentist again they didn’t call call me back as promised and I felt very let down by them. I called dental concepts at 5:15 Got the answer machine but didn’t leave a message as I thought they were closed . The receptionist called my number straight back asking if I needed any advice. I was treated the same day. Everything you want from your dentist.
I am very lucky to have my teeth done by Manish. The thing I love about my smile is that I am not worried about it; am not worried about is it the right angle, can you see the gap here, can you see that’s not quite straight… I can smile with confidence. If you want to have your teeth done, if you are worried about the way you look and it’s just your teeth that are letting you down, put your money into that guys, because it makes a huge difference, it has made a huge difference to me, its made a difference to my confidence! I am always smiling now.
I first came to Dental Concepts in June when looking around different dentists for Invisalign. I saw Manish for a consultation and he was great from the start! The consultation covered everything I needed to know about Invisalign, what he recommended and if I was suitable. He was very in depth and I didn’t feel rushed or pressured, he was happy to be explaining it all and answering my questions. I will definitely be keeping Manish as my dentist, even after my treatment is completed!
I have wanted my teeth straightened for many years, but was worried what type of braces could be used. Invisalign is very easy to use. I saw Invisalign on FB, clicked on the link & found Manish at DC Andover: Overall, I am very happy with my bigger smile! Thank you to all of Team DC.
After a lot of thought, it was decided that Invisalign would be the way to go to straighten my teeth. It was explained fully and the whole process has been so easy. The trays are easy to use & the result is better than I could have hoped. Thank you, Manish & team, for making “braces” such an easy time.
