Teeth Whitening has been highly publicised in the news recently due to an increase in beauty salons offering this treatment. As a team of dental professionals, here at Styvechale Dental Care in Coventry we aim to ensure our patients are aware of the risks associated with the provision of illegal and unsafe teeth whitening treatment...
In the UK, whitening should only legally be carried out by a dentist - which means that teeth whitening by beauty salons and in whitening kiosks is illegal. The main reason for this is because beauticians (and in fact anyone else without adequate professional dental training) lack the knowledge around dental anatomy and dental materials science needed in order to be able to provide teeth whitening in a safe and reliable way.
As an example - the British Academy of Dentistry (BACD) has issued a warning after being alerted to the case of a 23-year-old women whose teeth had darkened after treatment at a beauty salon.
