Ancient Egyptians and Teeth Whitening
Well first off I want to say Thank God we are not living in those time's anymore. What the Egyptians had to do for a white smile was so painful or disgusting in my opinion! It just goes to show how some people will do most anything for a brighter whiter smile.
In Ancient Rome, whitening one’s teeth was often accomplished using urine (I told you disgusting).
Ammonia, which is found in urine, is also a cleaning agent that can kill bacteria. The ancient Egyptians would whiten their teeth with a mixture of pulverized pumice and wine vinegar.
Strangely enough, centuries later, teeth whitening methods got worse! In the 1800s they used to whiten teeth by filing them down (OUCH) and then washing them in nitric acid (Are you kidding me). This also destroyed the protective enamel of the teeth (You think?).
It is amazing that people sat through this just for a whiter smile. 90% of people say the first thing they notice about someone is their smile. Now you can get a brighter, whiter smile, with no filing, no urine, no pain in only 20 minutes with WhiteScience patented technology. Spawhite is safe and effective. Using 36% carbamide Peroxide converted to 1/3 or 12% hydrogen Peroxide.
