With thousands of Brits now having some form of teeth whitening each year, the desire for a whiter smile seems to be growing. But with so many whitening options out there, what is actually safe?

Always see your dental practice for teeth whitening

Under European law, teeth whitening can only be carried out by a dentist or another regulated dental health professional, such as a dental hygienist or dental therapist, working under the prescription of a dentist. Dental professionals can use products that contain or release up to 6 per cent hydrogen peroxide, which can achieve effective levels of whitening.

Don’t be tempted to visit your local beauty salon or spa for teeth whitening

It is illegal for beauty salon staff to carry out teeth whitening. The procedure might not be carried out properly and the bleaching gel may burn sand blister other parts of your mouth.

Don’t use DIY whitening methods

The internet is full of ‘tips’ to whiten your teeth such as brushing with baking soda or rubbing lemon peel onto your teeth. These can actually damage your teeth.

How effective are over-the-counter whitening kits?

Legally these shouldn’t contain more than 0.1 per cent hydrogen peroxide – if they do, you could harm your teeth.Be aware that those within the safe 0.1 per cent hydrogen peroxide levels have minimal whitening effectiveness as the levels are very low.

If you’re thinking about whitening your teeth, always speak to your dentist to find the most appropriate option for your teeth and budget.

We offer two different systems you could use to whiten you teeth an have a whiter brighter smile .
