If you’re considering tooth whitening in Battersea then you’re certainly not alone. Here at Glow Dental one of our most popular cosmetic treatments is teeth whitening; but having said that we’re very much aware that many people try to whiten their teeth themselves using over the counter products and some will be offered tooth whitening treatments by their beauticians.
Most over the counter products fail to live up to expectations and any beautician or salon offering tooth whitening treatments is on very shaky ground since under the Dentists Act of 1984 it is considered illegal for anyone who is not a dentist to provide such a service.
When you consider that a dentist spends years qualifying as a dentist and a beautician may only have spent a few months training in all aspects of services offered, then that ruling makes sense.
Naturally as dentists in Battersea we’re biased, but we’re firmly of the opinion that teeth whitening should be classed as a dental procedure and here’s the reasons why:
If you decide to have your teeth whitened at a local beauty salon for example, not only could it be illegal but they are likely to have had less training and may be dealing with dubious chemicals which pose a threat of damage to your teeth, gums, and mouth. You may find there is very little difference to the color of your teeth or worse still, the whiteness is patchy.
So hopefully you can see that for the sake of saving a few pounds, it’s really not worth taking the risk. Our advice would be to always contact a qualified dental professional if you’re looking for Battersea teeth whitening and they’ll help you achieve the best possible results in the safest possible way.
