SOLUTION #2: ‘Do It Yourself’ Teeth Whitening Kit
|The second option is to try one of the many thousands of DIY teeth whitening kits available online.
But trust me, this option is even worse than going to a dentist!
And that’s because although they are cheaper – and therefore a lot more affordable for most people – they are INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS.
In fact, they are probably 100 times more dangerous than a professional teeth whitening procedure carried out by a dentist!
Teeth whitening has become such a huge business in recent years that more and more unscrupulous companies and solo ‘entrepreneurs’ have jumped on the bandwagon in search of a quick buck.
But the big problem is, they have absolutely no concern for your health or wellbeing.
They just want to make as much money as possible from the latest craze.
So if the dangers and risks are big at a dentist, imagine what they’re like when you try an UNREGULATED AND ILLEGAL home teeth whitening kit, which many of them are!
Well we don’t need to imagine.
Because we know.
DANGEROUSLY HIGH LEVELS OF HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND CARBAMIDE PEROXIDE!
|I’ve researched and tested these products extensively over the last 12 months and I’ve discovered some very scary statistics…
Firstly, a HUGE NUMBER of the home teeth whitening kits that I bought contained dangerous levels of the two main chemicals: hydrogen peroxide and hydrogen carbamide.
According to the FDA and EU Laws, home teeth whitening kits should contain no more than 0.01% of hydrogen peroxide to be safe.
However, my tests consistently recorded much higher levels.
And according to consumer studies carried out in both the US and the UK, some kits bought online were found to have as much as 10% hydrogen peroxide.
That’s 100 times more than the legal limit!!
Plus, many of these kits claimed to be EU or FDA approved, when they were anything but…
Quite simply, they were ILLEGAL, but I was still able to buy them online – and so can you.
As well as dangerously high levels of hydrogen peroxide, I discovered that some of these home kits included CHLORINE DIOXIDE and SODIUM PERBORATE as well.
These are extremely toxic chemicals often found in industrial grade detergents that can cause IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE TO TOOTH ENAMEL and premature tooth decay.
And that’s not all…
Because the mouth guards provided by the home kits aren’t custom-fitted, it’s common for some of the bleaching gels to leak out onto the person’s gums and into their mouth, causing burns, blistering and sensitivity – far worse than any experienced at a dental practice.
According to a report filed by the European Commission on tooth whitening products, it’s estimated that up to 25% of the hydrogen peroxide applied is actually SWALLOWED – and that’s NOT good for your health!
However, this isn’t anything new. The dangers of teeth whitening kits have been in the news for years.
Here’s one from The Daily Mail in the UK, which was highlighting the risks all the way back in 2007…
