I was asked to do a product review on Charcoal Teeth Whitener by Lydia Simmons, the owner of Swanky Couture Boutique.(who follows me on Twitter-BTW,Thank you for that!) I thought to myself humm, I was just “thinking” of making an appointment to go in and get my teeth whitened so this would save me a trip!
Let me just say that I already have pretty white teeth from years of doing at home Crest White Strips, but I also drink a lot of coffee. Some brands of teeth whitener’s break down the enamel on your teeth which is no good plus it leaves them very sensitive after the treatment which I don’t like.
I’ve done a lot of reviews on various different products containing Activated Bamboo Charcoal and I know how good these products are for your skin and hair, so it would make sense they’d be good for your teeth too. Activated charcoal is extremely effective at binding to toxins and free radicals which are airborne, that get trapped in all of your tiny little pores causing the nasty dreaded”pimple”. It is also used as a great first treatment for any kind of poisoning. So it’s pretty amazing stuff.
So WHY Activated Charcoal?
According to WebMD, ““Activated charcoal” is similar to common charcoal, but is made especially for use as a medicine. To make activated charcoal, manufacturers heat common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop lots of internal spaces or “pores.” These pores help activated charcoal “trap” chemicals.”
HUMM, much like trapping the plaque and removing bacteria that builds up on teeth. So not only does it WHITEN your teeth, but it also helps get rid of bad breath, bacteria and plaque. I personally noticed a difference after the first time I used the product. My teeth look much whiter after 5 MINUTES! JUST 5!! And I saved a ton of money not going to the dentist to have this done. Win- Win for me! When you use it, it is a little bit messy. Your mouth get’s all black but don’t be alarmed by this as it does wash away and does not stain your teeth at all. I even got a little drip on my T-shirt which washed right out. My teeth felt extremely clean with a smooth surface the entire day.
After further research I found that activated charcoal can actually aid in changing the pH and health of the mouth. As such it is effective in the prevention of cavities and killing the bad bacteria present in tooth decay and gingivitis. Basically Charcoal tooth paste is a great, natural alternative for your entire family; safe for kids and even your pet’s. It promotes healthy teeth & gums with out toxic (nasty) ingredients. It contains no synthetic additives, preservatives, foaming agents, fluoride, artificial coloring and no abrasive baking soda. It’s uniquely formulated to clean and safely polish teeth, improve gum health and freshen breath all at once.
How to use Charcoal teeth whitener:
Dip a clean, wet toothbrush into the paste-substance. Lean over the sink (as I stated before it get’s a little messy) quickly put the charcoal covered toothbrush in the mouth and brush in small, gentle circles for 4-5 minutes, spit carefully and rinse really well. Don’t forget your tongue-It also helps with bad breath. You will be able to taste the difference.
Your mouth will feel amazingly clean…. your sink, not so much! Use as often as needed.
Where to buy:
Enjoy Life-and white teeth!
