I love my teeth and I want bright whites, just like all of you. Charcoal is all the rage right now in health products and provides great benefits in some uses.
The charcoal tooth paste/tooth whitening trend is everywhere so you know I had to try it. I used it a couple of times and started to wonder how it was really working. So I reached out to a Dentist I know and he gave me the 411. DO NOT USE IT! He explained that the charcoal is abrasive and is actually removing/scratching the surface of your tooth, that is why you get the quick whitening results but you are actually damaging your teeth. No thank you! I do not want thin weak teeth, I like to eat too much.
Yes it whitens and is natural but that doesn’t mean it is good for you. Think twice about products like these. Stick to going to the dentist for whitening from the inside of your teeth out.
