Teeth Whitening : Advice and Tips

2013 September 10

Considering Teeth Whitening?

Here’s some useful advice…

  • Tooth Whitening is a dental procedure, it is illegal for anyone other than a dental professional to carry out this treatment
  • Ensure you have the treatment carried out safely and legally by visiting a dentist for the treatment
  • If you purchase ‘teeth whitening’ products from the internet or high street or undertake treatment in beauty salons, be aware you could be putting the health of your teeth and gums at risk or you could end up disappointed with ineffective results
  • ‘Teeth Whitening’ products sold to the public and which claim to whiten teeth could be at best, ineffective (due to very low concentrations of active ingredients) and at worst, harmful (due to being supplied illegally).
  • A product claiming to be ‘peroxide free’ may not be as safe as it sounds; sodium perborate or chlorine dioxide are potentially harmful products which are often used instead of peroxide in some teeth whitening products
  • Whitening toothpastes are a good temporary measure for removing surface staining but they will not lighten or whiten the colour of your teeth
  • If you are unsure your treatment is being provided safely and legally, ask for the providers G.D.C number or check if they are registered to provide teeth whitening legally  by visiting www.gdc-uk.org

Teeth whitening can reverse tooth discolouration and should always be carried out by a qualified dental professional.
