At best these non-dental teeth whitening products could remove superficial staining from your teeth, due to ingredients such as sodium bicarbonate, which is historically know to be in smokers toothpastes. At worst, these products could cause permanent damage of the teeth, by wearing away the enamel from products such as acids within the ingredients.
