Beauty Salons can Leave Teeth Ugly
Worldwide people flock to beauty salons like bees to honey. While some stylish folks only need to devote an hour to professional hair care, others may have to sit still for hours in order to achieve the look they want. In salons, it is this sit-and-wait period that is generally allocated to additional beauty treatments such as manis and pedis. Some UK salons are taking it one step further by offering professional teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures to their clientele, but smart consumers are advised to leave any type of dental care to the professionals.
The worldwide economic meltdown has forced many people to skip buying professional dental care. As a result, skipping the dentist has become a worldwide phenomenon and research has indicated that droves of UK residents are included in that fact. When these folks opt to get their teeth whitened at a beauty salon, the underlying dental problems caused by dental neglect can be irritated.
In London, six salons were cited by the GDC (General Dental Council) as in the country, only certified dentists are legally authorized to conduct tooth whitening procedures. In these salons, clinicians who received one day of training were responsible for whitening teeth. The strategy puts patients at risk for burned gums from improper chemical use. Chances are the onsite practitioners are not versed in how to handle this type of medical emergency.

The reality is, cosmetic dentistry is not a board-certified specialty either in the States or abroad. However, all certified dentists are qualified to be cosmetic dentists who can professional provide dental treatments to promote dental health and a gorgeous looking smile.
