Forced eyebrow waxings, risque routines and outfits have all been featured on "Toddlers & Tiaras." The latest beauty technique to show up? Teeth bleachings.
"I bleach my children's teeth at least once a week, whether we have a pageant coming up or not," one pageant mom tells the cameras. "There's no harm in bleaching their teeth. As long as you use something the children can stand the taste of, you're all right."
Daughter Alaska, age 8, seems to disagree with that assessment as she avoids the foul-tasting paste. "Please, no!" she tells her mother. "The teeth whitening stuff tastes terrible!"

The episodes airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on TLC.
