7 out of 10 brits would visit dentist for teeth whitening
Research for national smile month has shown that 72% of Brits would visit their dentist for teeth whitening.
This is seen as positive news for an industry that has been through some significant tightening of regulations in the last 12 months.
Previously, tooth whitening was available from a host of unlicensed practitioners and premises from beauty salons to health clubs, so patients in pursuit of a whiter smile could have treatment without firstly having a vital dental check up
In addition, higher levels of bleaching agent were permitted, exposing people to unnecessary risk.
Now new regulations have put in so that any oral products containing over 0/1% hydrogen peroxide can only be sold by a dentist, who can use tooth whitening or bleaching products to 6%, subject to conditions:
For each cycle of use, first use by a dental practitioner; or
Under their direct supervision, if an equivalent level of safety is to be ensured.
Afterwards to be provided to the consumer to complete the cycle of use.
Not to be used on a person under 18 years of age
The fact that people would now prefer to see a dentist is seen as very positive for an industry that has recently changed so dramatically in order to protect patients.
professional tooth whitening
For safe, effective results, the best way forward is to choose a registered dentist who not only had years of training and expert knowledge about teeth and dental health, but also has access to professional-strength bleaching agents AND a licence to use them.
