Unsafe Teeth Whitening Products Withdrawn
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has immediately recalled 9 popular home teeth whitening products.
The Products Withdrawn Are
- White My Bite – Sensitive
- White My Bite – Professional
- White My Bites – Advanced
- Sunshine Health
- White Smile
- DaVinci Elite – Pen and Whitening Kit
- Crest Whitening Strips
It has been reported that users of these unsafe products had complained of unacceptable side effects including burning in the mouth, ulcers, extreme sensitivity, headaches, tingling and discoloured teeth. Some of these kits had gel strengths that exceeded 30% concentration.
The ACCC commissioner advised all those seeking to whiten their teeth at home should be cautious and look into products and kits before buying.
The advice is that users should not buy or use any products that do not clearly display the strength of the bleaching compound, and when buying, make sure that they only use kits that use gels that do not exceed 18% Carbamide peroxide or 6% hydrogen peroxide.
Gels of these strengths are generally side effect free and suitable for all users.
The FDA in America have actually gone one step further and only approve Gels up to 16% concentration.
