If you’ve already invested in a teeth-whitening system, and your state enacts new regulations, just make sure to read the fine print. Changing the method by which the teeth whitening takes place—perhaps having the client insert the tray herself, if that’s a safe option—can be enough to keep you legal in some states.

The ADA details the regulations in a number of states on its Web site, www.ada.org. The best tactic to keep abreast of new or changing teeth-whitening laws is to keep in touch with your state’s board or dental board. After all, it never hurts to have one more service to entice clients to your spa.
