Many spas and beauty salons now offer their own teeth whitening services. It is even possible to buy home-whitening kits online without needing to consult a dentist. So why should you still see your dentist for whitening treatment?
The reason is simply that only dentists are authorized to use true whitening agents that can whiten your teeth effectively.
Hydrogen Peroxide is the main ingredient in whitening gel that produces the whitening effect. Only dentists are permitted by the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) to use products containing more than 0.1% hydrogen peroxide.
Most products offered at beauty salons claim to be able to whiten your teeth without the use of hydrogen peroxide. However, without this ingredient, they will only be able to lighten your teeth temporarily.
Online products containing high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide are not well regulated and could be harmful to the user. Products with a concentration of hydrogen peroxide above 0.1% must be prescribed by a dentist, and concentrations greater than 6% can only be used under the supervision of a dentist in a clinic.
