Accidently washed mouth with bleach!

Patient : Hello, my friend was bleaching the bathroom sink, however I didn't know that he had shoved bleach up the taps as well. So i washed my toothbrush and cleaned my teeth but then I got the taste of bleach and a funny feeling in my mouth. So I ran to the kitchen spat it out and washed my mouth out with water. I tried the tap again but the same thing happened. Will I have damaged my teeth or gums? My gums and lips are lighter, when will they if ever return to their normal colour? Thank you
