Unregulated tooth whitening

2018 July 16

In the last few years tooth whitening has become more popular which has unfortunately resulted in unregulated suppliers producing illegal products.

These products can contain as much as 300 times the legal amount of bleaching agent which results in damaging the teeth and gums and causes them to become extremely painful. In some cases, this pain never goes away as it results in 3rd degree burns which have life long effects on the mouth.

Even though it is illegal, it is becoming more and more common to see beauticians offering substandard whitening. Not only do they use unsafe products, they do not have the training to know if the teeth are healthy enough to have whitening treatments in the first place. The truth of the matter is, you should never purchase tooth whitening from anybody other than a GDC registered dental professional.

Whitening with a dental professional has the following benefits:

  1. We check the health of your teeth and gums before proceeding to ensure whitening is a safe option.
  2. The whitening gel is prescription only and has been tested for quality and safety.
  3. The whitening trays fit perfectly and will not irritate the gums.
  4. We provide you with the correct advice and aftercare.
  5. We are fully regulated.

We offer a free consultation to anyone interested in tooth whitening. If you would like to book an appointment, please call us on 01844343381 or visit our dental practice in Princes Risborough. We also see patients from Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Thame and the surrounding areas.
