Teeth whitening: this dangerous new trend among influencers

More and more influencers are highlighting teeth whitening in their stories. A dangerous new fashion that can have serious repercussions.

To have a dream smile, some influencers are ready for anything. For several years now, many have been advocating the benefits of products that whiten teeth through kits, varnishes or even charcoal powder. This last practice is also used by Julien Tanti, the famous candidate of Marseille. However, this would absolutely not be recommended according to Christophe Lequart, spokesperson for the French Union for oral health, who was questioned by our colleagues from RTL: “Charcoal powder should be avoided as it has an abrasive effect on the teeth. So she's going to remove some of the enamel that won't grow back. Charcoal powder alone should be avoided. »

Others have found even more drastic and risky solutions, such as Tiktokeur Maxime Skye, who had his teeth filed in Turkey to get crowns fitted. Captioning a video that went viral in November 2021, the 20-year-old wrote: “I want to say that what I do only commits me and that it is my body, I inquired before, I did not go to the first clinic that came. For what I wanted to change on my teeth, dental veneers were not suitable because we are more limited. I had a complex about my smile for 6 years now and I feel much better now, don't worry about me, in 10 or 20 years I could still handle it. Now I'm not encouraging anyone to do like me, I'm just sharing my experience with you, like any surgery, it can be dangerous.

An irreversible trend

About this trend, which costs less than veneers, dentist Emi Mawson said on TikTok: “Once your teeth have been filed into stumps, there is no turning back. I beg of you, if you want to change your smile, find a dentist who will practice the least invasive technique possible. Cutting the teeth to this point risks damaging the nerve, with possible infection and the risk of tooth extraction. »
