Teeth Whitening with Activated Charcoal
We’re not sure who discovered it, but teeth whitening with activated charcoal is high on the list of options for DIY teeth whitening. Some folks are interested in activated charcoal as a natural option to other commercial teeth whitening toothpastes that may contain chemicals and/or fluoride. Other folks may be using activated charcoal as an at-home, more affordable alternative to professional teeth whitening treatment.
Jessica, our video blogger, tried using activated charcoal to whiten her teeth and this video explains the recipe, process, and some of the unintended side effects of brushing with charcoal.
Activated Charcoal for Teeth Whitening – the Process:
The recipe for creating activated charcoal toothpaste is very simple – just empty a capsule of activated charcoal onto your toothbrush, add a little water, and brush. When you’re done brushing, rinse your mouth very well. Avoiding the mess from activated charcoal, however, is not quite so simple. The powder is very fine, and you should not breathe it in. Charcoal is easy to wipe off non-porous surfaces, but easily stains plastics and grout.
