As we’ve come out of lockdown, some people have wanted to restore their teeth to their former, pre-pandemic glory. So, rather than wait for an appointment with their understandably busy dental practice, they’re going to non-registered providers- which is a massive misstep. The BBC have reported a 26% rise in illegal teeth whitening procedures being carried out in beauty salons and kiosks. These procedures can only be carried out by a trained dental professional, such as a hygienist or dentist, and if done otherwise can be dangerous, as well as illegal. While cosmetic treatments like tooth whitening and orthodontics may seem like relatively easy procedures, they are quite the opposite. These are medical procedures and should only ever be carried out by a dental professional.
The potential repercussions of having these treatments by a non-trained dental professional can be extremely dangerous. There could be a greater risk of infection and cross contamination, as well as permanent damage to the teeth gums, mouth and even the jaw. These are the kind of consequences that can last a lifetime, cause unnecessary pain and suffering, and are highly expensive to correct.
