Tooth Whitening should be carried out by professionals

Our Cosmetic Dentist in Liverpool offers professional and safe teeth whitening.  Tooth Whitening should be carried out by a trained professional to ensure you are safe and that you get the results you want.

The General Dental Council (GDC) has successfully prosecuted a man from Ilford for carrying out tooth whitening illegally. 

Gagandeep Singh pleaded guilty to offering the treatment on 21 April 2016 without being on GDC’s list of registered dental professionals at Snow Teeth Whitening, 56 Theobald Road, London, WC1X 8SF. 

The GDC had previously received other complaints about Mr Singh and sent him two previous warning letters which he ignored.

Following an increasing trend for teeth whitening procedures in the UK leading oral health charity, the Oral Health Foundation, is highlighting the serious risks that consumers are taking by opting for illegal and unsafe whitening treatment. 

Research by the charity found that one in four people (28 per cent) would not go to the dentist for their tooth whitening treatment and rather purchase potentially unsafe home kits over the internet or visit illegal beauticians and kiosks instead.

Good diet means good oral health for your children

A new study has found that early exposure to two chemicals often found in food packaging and fungicides may cause irreversible damage to children’s teeth.

The researchers found exposure to the chemicals bisphenol A (BPA) and vinclozolin may interfere with hormones responsible for the growth of dental enamel.

Lead study author Dr Katia Jedeon, of the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM), and colleagues presented their findings at the 2016 European Congress of Endocrinology in Munich, Germany.

Encouraging good oral health in our children

A third of parents believe it’s acceptable for children to have experienced tooth decay before they become a teenager.

These results come from a survey conducted by Denplan, which found that 30% of parents believe decay in children is acceptable while 26% said they have found it difficult to regulate children’s sugar consumption.

Of the parents surveyed, 29% believed painful oral health conditions, such as tooth decay, are down to your family history and just 18% said they take their child to see the dentist once a year as soon as their first tooth appears.
