Treatment to whiten teeth.
25 Aug 2011 01:30 GMT
Is it permissible to go to the dentist to get your teeth whitened, meaning that the dentist uses some chemicals to make the teeth white again after they have changed color due to lack of care? Is this changing the creation of Allah?

Sheikh Husayn al-Jabûrî, professor at Umm al-Qurâ University

It is permissible to go to a dentist to get your teeth whitened.

This is not a case of changing Allah’s creation. You are merely restoring your teeth to their original condition by removing extraneous stains from them.

And Allah knows best.
