‘Save up for professional teeth whitening’ if you want to be safe


It may be worth saving up for professional teeth whitening.  A writer has advised anyone wanting a brighter smile to save up for professional teeth whitening treatment in order to avoid damaging their teeth.

Miriam Stoppard told the Mirror DIY kits could "permanently damage your teeth and even harm your long-term health".

She pointed out that although kits used by professionals do contain sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide, dentists know what they are doing with the substances.

When these chemicals are used at home, they could damage tooth enamel, actually causing them to turn darker because the dentin below is exposed.

"If you want whiter teeth, ask your dentist's advice … save up money for a professional treatment that's guaranteed to work and be safe," Ms Stoppard urged.

This follows advice from the British Dental Association's Martin Fallowfield earlier this week, who told the Sun that kits bought on the internet or through beauty salons could be downright dangerous for teeth and gums.


Be wary of teeth whitening kits, expert advises


Some DIY teeth whitening kits could be downright dangerous.People in the UK have been advised to be wary of teeth whitening kits by one expert in the field.

Martin Fallowfield from the British Dental Association told the Sun that some DIY products may not be very good for the teeth at all.

"Only dentists and dental hygienists can legally sell professional strength whitening kits in the UK," he pointed out.

Consequently, kits bought elsewhere such as on the internet or from salons can be either "useless or dangerous", Mr Freeman said.

To help get smiles looking really white, he recommended brushing twice daily and flossing as much as possible, as well as seeing a dentist if considering cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Earlier this month, Dr James Goolnik told the Cosmetic Dentistry Guide that professional teeth whitening does not cost as much as many people think.

He also said it is more effective in the long run than home-based products.
