The Dangerous Side of Teeth Whitening Products
Jake Barrett is a twenty-two-year-old British man who almost lost his life after using a kit to whiten his teeth. Jake said that he used the “3D Crest White” kit because he wanted to be like his Hollywood idol Channing Tatum. Jake paid sixty-five British pounds for the kit, but it ended up costing him a lot more. Within two days of using the whitening kit, a cyst developed in his mouth. It grew at an exponential rate. By the sixth day, the pain was unbearable and Jake went to see the doctor. Upon opening the cyst, the doctor saw that it was full of hydrogen peroxide. Further analysis showed that the whitening kit Jake had used was comprised of 15 percent pure hydrogen peroxide. The operation to repair the damage took three hours, and Jake was left with an open hole under his chin.
