Illegal Tooth Whitening

Finally,  the British legal system has decided that it is illegal for anyone who is not a dental professional to perform tooth-whitening procedures.

This week a private company in the UK has been fined £3500 for carrying out tooth whitening.  Dentists all over Europe have been concerned about a loophole in the laws which basically allowed ANYONE to put potentially dangerous chemicals in people’s mouths, chemicals which can cause irreparable damage to teeth.

So, if you see a beauty salon offering tooth whitening, know that they are breaking a law which has been enforced to protect the general public.  Good result.
