Why would anybody? Whitening has no health benefits, it's just an appearance thing.
I can imagine it might even have negative effects in the long term..
No objection to people actually getting treatment for actual PROBLEMS with their teeth, of course. But whitening just makes you look a bit self obsessed. And like a robot.. some people do it to the extent they look like they have plastic ones ^^;
Might be differing values since I'm British. (incidentely this is the reason we have a 'bad teeth' stereotype, and not cos of poor dental HEALTH, as our record is very good thanks to the national health service. So this is a beserk button for me)

Each to their own; can see your points, for sure. :3

I got nothing for teeth whitening, but nothing against it either. In my mind, it's your money if you want to spend it on teeth whitening and you think it looks good.. eh. No different from plastic surgery, spending copious amounts of money on hair styling, etc etc. I can't really say anything bad about it. I just wouldn't spend money on it myself - teeth age as we do, we're the only creatures on earth who dive a damn how white they look when we die. XD

If it makes you feel better, I don't think of that stereotype when I think of the British.. though I may also be biased, I'm Canadian- kinda a distant kinship, really. X3

Yeah, that's much my policy too ^^; I wouldn't normally complain to people about their choices if the subject of tooth whitening came up in real life, I just tend to blabber a bit when debate stuff like this comes up XD
I'm generally against wasting money to try and change yourself on the whole, though. Especially plastic surgery- that's much worse as there's so many ways the procedure could backfire. Not worth the risk!
And haha, we have even more in common then! I live in wales- its like the canada in comparison to england XD
