Teeth Whitening In Glasgow
Friday, September 30th, 2016
One of the first things you notice in a person is their smile; this is why it is not surprising that teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment in the UK. It’s a quick and effective way to enhance your smile, and in turn boost your self- confidence.
Unfortunately, teeth can become stained and discoloured due to a variety of reasons. Sometimes your teeth will become discoloured simply due to ageing. However, lifestyle and food choices can also take their toll on your glistening smile. There are two main types of tooth discolouration:
• Extrinsic – this is the type of stain that you are most likely to be aware of and is when the outer layer of the tooth (the enamel) is stained. It is typically caused by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, berries and sweets. Smoking also causes extrinsic stains.
• Intrinsic- most people tend to be less familiar with these type of stains. This type of discolouration refers to stains which originate from within the tooth itself. There are many potential causes of this including dental trauma, overuse of fluoride, decay, dental fractures and hereditary conditions.
There are a number of changes you can make in order to avoid having yellow discoloured teeth. These could be simply reducing your consumption of dark-coloured foods and drinks, or sipping darker beverages throw a straw to minimise exposure to your teeth. Read more about the most common causes of teeth discolouring in our blog.
Improving your dental hygiene by brushing, flossing, using mouthwash daily and having regular visits to the dentist will all assist in eliminating teeth discolouration. You can also reduce the risk of staining your teeth by taking precautions to prevent dental injury such as wearing a mouth guard whilst playing sport and avoiding eating hard foods.
Fortunately, at the Berkeley Clinic, we can help eliminate teeth discolouration with our safe and painless teeth whitening procedure. With our X white pro ultimate whitening package, you can say goodbye to yellow teeth!

Teeth Whitening Carried Out By The Beauticians Is Illegal
Tuesday, March 24th, 2015
Many people are under the impression that professional tooth whitening can be carried out in the beauty salons, pop-up kiosks or by someone who carries out home visits. But the fact is that it is illegal for anyone other than a dentist, dental hygienist or dental therapist (working to prescription of a dentist) to carry out tooth whitening.
According to General Dental Council, dental professionals are the only legal practitioners of teeth whitening. Beauty therapists cannot recognize potential issues with your teeth, gums or mouth.
Some people who work in the beauty industry have been sold expensive teeth whitening courses and equipment by unscrupulous companies that make them believe the process is legal.
Dental professionals are required to train for many years to understand the structure of the mouth, to recognise dental issues and to be able to prescribe the correct treatment to each individual patient. Dentists can recognise many types of gum disease and signs of mouth cancer. They are adequately trained to prescribe the correct medication and treatment.
Tooth whitening chemicals are able to permanently damage the teeth and gums if they are not used correctly and appropriately. These chemicals sink into the tooth surface. Therefore, the practitioner who is providing the treatment needs to be fully qualified and registered with the General Dental Council (GDC).
A recent court case highlighted that teeth whitening had been decided by a High Court judge to be ‘the act of dentistry.’ So even if the practitioner is using below the legal limit of hydrogen peroxide or a product which does not contain hydrogen peroxide, they are still breaking the law and putting people at risk.
All of the products that are used by the dental professionals are thoroughly tested over the course of many years and have been proven to be effective without causing any harm to teeth or gums.
The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC) does not provide any qualifications for undertaking teeth whitening treatments by beauticians and as such it is illegal to whiten teeth by people other than dental clinicians. If during or after the procedure you experience any complications you will not be covered legally for any insurance claims.
Teeth whitening is considered to be safe if carried out by a dental clinician. If you want to get protected and safe teeth whitening treatment get it done professionally.
The Berkeley Clinic is currently offering various teeth whitening options to suit your budget and achieve desired results. You can even get an exclusive and customized teeth whitening kit for free when you join our Beautiful Smiles Plan. If you would like to find out more about cosmetic dentistry at The Berkeley Clinic.
