Having a billion dollar smile shouldn’t cost a billion dollars. My grandma always said to brush with baking powder, but that doesn't always taste right! And we know that these days, going to the dentist costs way too much, and frankly, those blue lights the dentists use to bleach your teeth just look too scary - at least to me. But fear not, there is a solution; Charcoal Powder.
So if you are intrigued about this new rave, read on! Here you will find out everything you need to know, and even if it really works. Then you can make up your own mind as to whether it is worth a try to whiten your teeth with Charcoal powder.
Don’t worry, it is not the leftover black mass after a Sunday barbecue. It is similar, however. This type has been specially formulated to be healthy and helpful when in your mouth. Specially made for teeth. How it is made? Glad you asked! Well, the charcoal is first heated up with gas so that large pores are made in the charcoal in which chemicals are trapped. Usually used to help alleviate tummy problems, scientists have now also realized that with its tastelessness and being odorless Charcoal could offer more than meets the eye.
The charcoal powder pores, previously mentioned with the ability to trap chemicals are able to bind with those dirty, rough and tough parts of your teeth, also known as surface stains and plaque. In turn, this means that it is easier for the yellowing foods and drinks to be attracted to the charcoal and carried away. It just needs to be left on your teeth for a while so that it creates a strong bond with all the nasties, meaning that when you rinse it off, all the yuck goes with it. This is essentially how the charcoal powder whitens teeth. Note that it is true sometimes that beauty is just skin deep - While the charcoal powder takes off the stain and dirt on the top layers, teeth that are deeper stained won’t benefit too much. For this, you will need to see a dentist.
Even though it might feel satisfying to scrub at your teeth, this is not the way to do it. The softer the better. Firstly you won’t be scrubbing away at your enamel which keeps your teeth strong, and secondly, you will be doing your teeth a favor. Charcoal powder is rough, so you need to be extra-soft. Take care of your pearly whites and they will serve you for a long time!
So if you have been won over by the charcoal powder, here is a step by step guide as to how to do it.
There you have it! Teeth whitening with Charcoal powder. Here is a free tip for good measure: Only floss the teeth you want to keep - haha!. Now you will be ready to go out with a twinkle in your smile.
