Teeth whitening uses a chemical reaction to remove stains and boost how white your teeth appear.
For the best teeth whitening results it is important to get professional advice from your dentist. Professional whitening gels typically use hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide solutions – both of which are safe when used by professionals.
In Australia, dentists are the only professionals allowed to administer high concentration, high quality teeth whitening gels. When these gels are used by an experienced professional they can offer far greater whitening power than the low concentration gels available online or over the counter.
It is important to understand that teeth whitening with popular home remedies, or less reputable products can cause permanent damage to your teeth. The ACCC has cracked down on the sale of illegal teeth whitening products online over the last few years.
