There are strict rules about teeth whitening in the UK and teeth whitening products need to comply with Cosmetic Product Regulations. The EU Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 on cosmetic products makes it an offence to supply a cosmetic product that may cause damage to human health or that contains specific restricted or prohibited substances.

Earlier this year we warned people ‘Beware of Illegal Tooth Whitening‘ and why it is important to ensure that if you want safe and high quality teeth whitening, that you only get it from a registered GDC professional i.e. a dentist, dental therapist or dental hygienist.

Now one of the biggest manufacturing business in the world, P&G, has been caught out for selling illegal teeth whitening strips. P&G whose dental brands include Oral B, Fixadent and Crest are suffering a humiliating product recall from major supermarkets including Tesco and Sainsburys and online retailers such as Amazon.

According to The Sun newspaper 6 types of teeth whitening strips are being urgently recalled, including 1 Hour Express, Classic Vivid, Gentle Routine, Glamorous White, Professional Effects, Supreme Flexfit and Supreme Professional. They’re believed to be a “serious risk” and don’t comply with the Cosmetic Products Regulation.

If you are considering teeth whitening, please read our Free Teeth Whitening Guide to be sure that you make an informed decision about your cosmetic dentistry.

At FHDC we offer Boutique Home Whitening and Enlighten Combination (in-surgey and at home) teeth whitening. Bothe services are available with our dentists or our dental hygienist who are registered with the General dental Council.
