Is the rise in teeth whitening a dangerous trend? ⠀

Whether you were a fan of Love Island or not...it’s interesting to learn that sales of at home teeth whitening from Rapid White increased by over 10% since the new series started. The brand’s whitening strips and daily whitening toothpaste proved particularly popular, with both products claiming to improve the appearance of teeth in just a matter of days.
