Tooth whitening

Tooth whitening involves the use of special chemicals to brighten the colour of the teeth. It is sometimes called tooth bleaching.

The chemicals used are NOT the same as household bleach, or the chemicals used to lighten hair. They are medically recognised, safe to use and only available to dental or medical professionals.

Legally, it may only be carried out by a qualified person such as a dentist, or someone under their direct supervision.
