Illegal Teeth Whitening

A BBC investigation recently revealed the scale of illegal teeth whitening across the West of England. 

Undercover reporters from the BBC’s Inside Out West filmed one provider operating under an assumed name, just two years after he was prosecuted by the regulator, the General Dental Council, for illegal whitening.

The film revealed unlicensed online-trainers providing rudimentary guidance for illegal whitening, and recommending products including chlorine-dioxide whiteners that cause lasting damage to teeth. The BDA have highlighted the need for whitening to be carried out by a trained dental professional. If you are in any doubt about who can do teeth whitening the BDA have produced the video below.
