Tooth whitening in Courts

In the U.K. and America courts are cracking down on tooth whitening businesses

There are hundreds, probably thousands of tooth whitening options available to the public and there are some who are concerned about the quality of non-dentist tooth whitening systems. This has sparked several court cases: one in the U.K. and one in the American state of Alabama. A Divisional Court in the U.K. has concluded that tooth whitening falls under the definition of the practice of dentistry. What this means is that a person would have to be a licensed dentist to perform tooth whitening services. The state of Alabama in America has said something similar: you have to be a dentist to perform tooth whitening services to the public.

But as one article points out if it really is a matter of public safety that only dentists provide tooth whitening services, why are at-home kits not taken off the shelf? It is unclear how long these laws will last as there are lawsuits starting up to oppose this ban on tooth-whitening businesses.

As dentists we feel it is advisable to come to a dentist for tooth whitening, as dental professionals are trained to find the source of tooth discolouration and treat it accordingly. At Tewantin Dental Centre we have performed thousands of tooth whitening procedures all of which have had terrific results.
