ACTIVATED CHARCOAL IS BECOMING MORE POPULAR FOR AT HOME TEETH WHITENING. THE REASON IT WORKS SO WELL TO ELIMINATE TOUGH STAINS IS BECAUSE OF ITS ACTIVE INGREDIENTS.
Charcoal is an all-natural mineral derived from the earth and is safe to use if you have sensitive teeth. It will not cause any pain or increased sensitivity.
HOW DOES IT WORK:
Activated charcoal works microscopically to lift teeth stains cause by food, coffee, tea or smoking. You will NOT be able to get rid of stronger stains caused by medication or a dead tooth discolouration. A dentist can however treat the more serious stain by whitening the tooth from the inside.
HOW DO YOU USE IT:
All products will come with general instructions and guidelines; however, they are all very similar. You want to use it in addition to toothpaste and in the same brushing method as you would with normal toothpaste. Additionally, a bamboo toothbrush is better to use in combination with your charcoal, this way you will not damage your regular toothbrush.
WHERE CAN YOU FIND IT:
You can find activated charcoal toothpaste at your local oral health care stores eg. Shoppers Drug Mart or Targets tooths paste section. There are also several products available on Amazon.
Since this blog isn’t written by a dentist, we always recommend you consulting your health care professional before trying any of our suggestions.
I hope this helps you with your at home teeth whitening goals!
