Teeth whitening is a great way to refresh your smile. A relatively quick procedure, whitening can transform your teeth in just a few hours and you can even do it at home.
But it’s important to get your tooth whitening kit sourced from a professional.
Currently in the UK, only a dental professional registered with the General Dental Council is allowed to perform any sort of bleaching. It is actually illegal for anyone else to do it.
Some salons and boutiques continue to offer whitening, often at a very attractive price, and promise they have been on courses allowing them to carry out the whitening legally.
This is not true. The reason why only dentists are allowed to carry it out is because if used incorrectly, the bleach can cause irreverisble damage to both the teeth and gums, leaving patients in agony. Burnt gums, severely sensitive teeth and in some cases, tooth loss can be the result in improper use of tooth whitening gels.
Please don’t risk that beautiful smile of yours! Tooth whitening, like many dental procedures, are priced as they are due to the training and knowledge that the dentist possessses to be able to carry out such treatment. Have it done safely and legally, I promise it’ll be worth it.
Don’t take our word for it though. Take a look at this news paper article from a mother who went to a beauty salon and ended up paying the price:
