Does anyone know whether the chlorine in a swimming pool could significantly lighten out the color of teeth? Or have any significant effect at all on teeth or skin?
Chi Meson said:A small amount of fluorine, taken internally in city tap water, evidently has a beneficial effect for our teeth. I don't know what makes it so, but chlorine does not have the same effect (internally) as far as I know. Anyone?
LURCH said:I spent 3 weeks in West Africa in 1991. Because I am a white man from the US (whimpy immune system), I and all my co-workers had to drink water with chlorine in it. The concentratiom was much less than you would find in your pool, but more than in city tap-water (even in my town, which has way to much chlorine in the water), and it was all we could drink for the duration of our visit. When i returned, friends and familly comented on how white my teeth looked.
