I purchased some Activated Charcoal Capsules a few months ago to try out the latest trend of activated charcoal face masks.

Another popular use for activated charcoal is teeth whitening. I thought I would test it out, sure that it couldn’t be worse than the face mask, and optimistic that it would work.

Apparently, the activated charcoal powder pulls any surface dirt/stains from teeth, whitening them. Therefore, if your stains are deeper (not surface stains), activated charcoal will not remove them and a more intense method of teeth whitening is required.

To whiten your teeth using activated charcoal you will need:
Activated Charcoal (I purchased my capsules from Holland and Barrett – £5.59 for 100 capsules).
A wet toothbrush
A small bowl

How to whiten your teeth with activated charcoal:
Add the powder from 1-2 capsules of activated charcoal to the small bowl
Dab the wet toothbrush in activated charcoal powder, and dab onto your teeth. Do not brush your teeth with the activated charcoal powder, as it may damage your tooth enamel.
Leave the activated charcoal powder on teeth for 3 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly with water (I also brushed my teeth with my regular toothpaste).

My results:
Looking at my before and after photos, I think the activated charcoal did remove some stains from my teeth.
There are clearly some deeper stains that need removing by a different method of teeth whitening.
I am impressed with the results. It took all of 5 minutes and was completely painless. Yes I did look like I had extremely poor dental hygiene while I tried out activated charcoal teeth whitening, but it was worth it.
