Laura and I decided to brave the mall this afternoon. As one might expect, it was frenetic madness, but we survived, and even managed to make some purchases.
This time of year there are seasonal booths set up to nab gift buyers. There is always the Sees Candy booth and the calendar booth, but this time we came across a truly weird one – the LED dental whitening booth. There were people out in the middle of the mall stretched out on dental chairs with strange instruments attached to their mouths, which were glowing. I don’t know. I don’t think I’d trust some quack in a mall to whiten my teeth, even if it weren’t for the public humiliation of sitting in wide open mall to have it done.

wow! i’ve never seen people getting their teeth whitened at a mall! LOL
I had my teeth done at the mall and had GREAT results! Why pay a dentist 500!! They were very knowlegable and never claimed to be dentists
I have done it plenty of times It works great!
OMG, they don’t realize if done improperly it can literally ‘cook’ the nerves of the teeth! Working in a dentist office for 20 yrs. I know this to be true, we have done many root canals on people for just this reason! The cheap trays you buy on the toothpaste isle in Wal Mart work just as well, & if you experience any sensitivity (which is a usual side effect) you just stop using the bleach for a day or two and let your teeth remineralize so you can start back again.
I’d be very suspecting of a teeth whitening booth in the mall. If not done properly, you could really damage your teeth, gums and nerves. It would be better to get the whitener trays at the store and use those in the privacy of your own home. They are not as potent, but work just fine and you are less likely to damage your mouth permanently.
