Post Clorox bleach for teeth

I saw on a talk show where a model dabs a qtip in clorox bleach and she just rubs it on her teeth to make them white. Is this safe 2 do as long as u dont get it on your gums and stuff or is it bad for your teeth.

Oh my goodness that sounds dangerous. Just swallowing a little bit could cause death.

I would not even try a little bit with a q-tip.

No No No! When I was a child I drank from a pop bottle my grandmother used to keep under her sink- it had bleach in it. Apparently I didn't swallow any but the doctor said it could have been lethal.

That's why they have the poison symbol on the bottle- why in the world would you even think about putting it on your teeth? If this model said she was going to jump off a bridge would you do it too?

There are so many tooth-whitening products on the market- if you want whiter teeth save up your $$ and buy something that is meant to be put in your mouth!

Just my 2 cents......

WHAT A COINCIDENCE: My mother was JUST talking about this yesterday. Actually she has been telling me this for years. Her best friend since childhood did this when she "didn't know any better." Yep, my mom's friend used to use clorox bleech on her teeth. The result? She is now missing enamel. I don't know exactly how her teeth are now, but putting bleech on her teeth did damage them. You do it, and you'll be sorry. It's not that hard to get them professionally whitened.

wouldn't the bleach eat up the q-tip rather quickly? this sounds like it would be extremely dangerous, especially on yourself. when a dentist does the whitening, they take extreme precautions covering gums and such and only exposing the teeth. it's definately not worth taking the chance of damage or even death for a chance at a cheap white smile *in my oppinion anyways*. get it done professionally.
