Former Dental Nurse breaks ranks to reveal the frightening truth about teeth whitening products

The obvious solution is to visit your local dentist.

But the chances are, you’ll have to fork out anything from $1,000 – $3,000.

And most people simply can’t afford that…

But what you REALLY need to know is that dentists use a range of toxic chemicals such as Hydrogen Peroxide and Carbamide Peroxide – which are both used as BLEACHING AND DISINFECTANT AGENTS and can cause horrific side effects.

In fact, here’s just a small selection of the most common side effects I saw while working as a dental nurse…

 

SIDE EFFECT #1: PROLONGED TOOTH SENSITIVITY

The most common side effect is tooth sensitivity. This can range anywhere from mild to very severe pain, and has been reported to last as long as two weeks, even after just one exposure to a whitening agent. Light activated whitening systems offered at dental clinics I’ve worked at have caused the highest incidence of tooth sensitivity, with patients describing a “sharp, shooting pain” for hours and even weeks after the treatment.

 

SIDE EFFECT #2: SHRINKING/RECEDING GUMS

The main whitening agents used – Hydrogen Peroxide and Carbamide Peroxide – are bleaching agents which shouldn’t go anywhere near your skin or mouth! If these toxic chemicals make contact with the gums (which they often do) it can cause them to shrink or recede, resulting in part of the root being exposed along with the crown of the tooth.

 

SIDE EFFECT #3: BLEEDING & MOUTH BLISTERING/BURNT GUMS

Another common side effect of teeth whitening chemicals is soft tissue irritation, which can be so severe that the mouth and gums start to bleed or blister.

This can be very painful, and take days or even weeks to heal.

 

SIDE EFFECT #4: STOMACH PAIN, DIARRHOEA & VOMITING

Many patients have also reported nasty cases of stomach pain, diarrhoea and vomiting caused by the chemicals, because they’re harmful to the gastro-intestinal tract.

These toxic chemicals should NEVER be swallowed, but often are during the whitening process.

 

SIDE EFFECT #5: PAINFUL THROBBING

Some people report a painful throbbing in their teeth for several days after bleaching. This is often because the bleach has penetrated into exposed dentin or a crack in the enamel to irritate the pulp.

This is a serious condition that can result in the narrowing of the pulp chamber and the canal, which can often lead to the need for a root canal years later.

 

SIDE EFFECT #6: THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES IT WILL EVEN WORK!

Ok, it’s not really a side effect, but it’s a definite problem! The fact is, despite what you’ve probably been told, teeth whitening techniques won’t work for everyone.

This is because (as I mentioned earlier) tooth staining is also caused by antibiotics such as tetracycline, which discolours the tooth enamel itself.

Cosmetic dental practices claim – often unrealistically – that laser whitening can remove this type of staining, but the reality is that there’s only a 10 -20% chance of bleaching techniques working in these cases.

Hundreds, and even thousands of people throughout the world have reported cases in which they paid as much as $3,000 for teeth whitening treatments, only to see NO VISIBLE RESULTS WHATSOEVER!

So if all those risks and dangers weren’t scary enough, you’d have to fork out anywhere from $1,000 – $3,000 for the privilege…

So what’s the second option available to you?
