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.
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.
