Dentists and prominent journalists are beginning to warn people about the dangers of teeth whitening.

Unrecognised teeth whitening products are used to treat patients in non-clinical (medical) establishments. These procedures are not authorised by dentists and are often performed by people who are not recognized or members of the General Dental Council or British Dental Association. In fact, the British Dental Association has issued warning against non-authorised treatments. This is because many DIY teeth kits that are available online and in beauty salons contain chlorine dioxide, the same chemical used to clean swimming pools. Some of the products and kits can contain elements that can cause irreversible damage to teeth.

Anyone who wishes to consider teeth whitening should be carefully assessed for suitability by a dentist prior to any teeth whitening procedure. This is because while teeth may be stained on the surface, tooth discolouraton may also be caused by more significant problems such as tooth decay or even a tooth abscess.
