Want Whiter Teeth Without The Burn???

I’ve gone to the dark side. If you want whiter teeth, you first, have to go dark…and what I mean by dark is, CHARCOAL dark.

Ever heard of activated charcoal? It comes in powder form, tablets, and capsules. It’s an old school remedy for food poisoning, and pumping toxins out of the body. Hospitals still use it to pump peoples’ stomachs with. It’s highly absorbent (supposedly can hold 500 times it’s weight) & is thought to absorb and eliminate toxins. Some say you should always have activated charcoal in your house incase of poison ingestion.

How does this pertain to teeth, you may ask? Well, the idea is that the charcoal will pull toxins out of the mouth & gums as well as remove stains from the teeth. Sounds crazy, right? Considering that the charcoal itself is HIGHLY staining, meaning don’t let it touch anything in your house or it will be stained black forever and ever. Will it stain your teeth? No. It’s magic.

Here is what you do: 

Take an activated charcoal tablet and chew it up a little (loose enough to be brushed and rubbed on your teeth), or dip your toothbrush in activated charcoal powder. Brush all over the teeth softly for about 2 minutes. Rinse, spit, and make sure to not get it into any of the grout around your sink….CAREFUL! Your mouth will feel amazing, clean, and your teeth should be a couple shades whiter. The great thing about this is that it’s safe, and it won’t harm the enamel on your teeth like commercial whiteners and bleaches. It’s not masking the stains, it’s actually removing them. Use as often as needed! If you really wanna take the remineralization of your teeth to the next level, follow this procedure with Oil Pulling! Swish some coconut oil through your mouth and teeth for 5 minutes for maximum effect of whitening, replenishing, and oral health.

Here are some before and after pics from the internet. Don’t be intimidated by the black teeth!

    Crazy! You definitely have to make a post and let us know how it works for you!! I just might have to try this.

  2. Hello! That’s a little bit odd! LOL! Doesn’t that have side effects or something? What I’ve read was lemon juice and baking soda. You make it a paste then use it as toothpaste. You should just do it like once or twice a week.
