Age, diet and even some medications can cause teeth to stain, but tooth whitening is an affordable and effective way to combat these common causes of tooth discolouration.
Today, only dentists, dental therapists, dental hygienists and clinical dental technicians working to the prescription of a registered dentist can legally perform tooth whitening. Some people with specific conditions will be at risk from any teeth whitening procedure so it is important you see an experienced dental professional who can determine any potential issues during your initial consultation and before treatment.
Please be especially aware of some beauticians, hairdressers and other non-clinicians who continue to offer tooth whitening. They are operating illegally, may be untrained and uninsured, will often offer no guarantee and can be using the wrong treatments in the wrong way causing serious and irreparable damage to teeth, gums and mouth.
