Teeth whitening with activated carbon

Each of us dreams of a snow-white and beautiful smile. Healthy teeth, an open smile, a confident look – all this is the key to success, both in a career and in personal relationships. But, unfortunately, professional care takes a lot of time, nerves and money. Of course, by contacting a professional, you will become the owner of a charming Hollywood smile, but even a top-class specialist cannot guarantee you the eternal whiteness of your teeth. On average in Russia, having spent about fifteen thousand rubles on whitening, you still have to give up your favorite chocolate, tea and some fruits, and in the company of friends it is better to give up wine, otherwise the ideal whiteness of the teeth will very quickly acquire such an unpleasant yellowish tint. And I’m not talking about how hard it is for smokers. How to proceed in such a case?

The simplest way out of the situation does not shine with originality. At no cost, you can whiten your teeth at home as often as you need. I hasten to note that from the first time, you will not achieve the same result as in the dental clinic, but as they say: “Patience and work …”. The second warning: excessive enthusiasm for self-whitening of teeth can lead to disastrous results. It is not recommended to resort to the following procedures more than a couple of times a week. Otherwise, you risk getting problems with tooth enamel and damaging the gums. Also, do not forget that no, even a state-of-the-art laser whitening machine, will not make your teeth even a tone lighter than nature and your genes predispose.

So, in order not to waste money and nerves (and sometimes chemical bleaching can cause some discomfort) in a dental clinic, just look around you. Check your home first aid kit. I am sure that you will definitely find several packages of the well-known activated carbon. That’s just activated charcoal and is a great natural whitening agent for teeth. Below, I will give four ways to whiten teeth with activated charcoal at home.

Four ways to make your smile charming without leaving home

Brush your teeth with activated charcoal!

Activated charcoal is a natural abrasive, charcoal acts as a great all-purpose cleaner. Mix a small amount of powdered activated charcoal with your regular toothpaste, or simply dilute half a tablet of charcoal with a little warm water. The resulting product should have the consistency of a thick slurry. Don’t overdo it with water! Next, apply the resulting product to your toothbrush and brush your teeth as usual. This is one of the most gentle teeth whitening procedures, but, nevertheless, you should not do it more than twice a week. By the way, the result is noticeable instantly!

Chew activated charcoal!

Take a couple of charcoal tablets and chew it well. Your teeth and tongue should become a rich black color. Hold the charcoal in your mouth for ten to fifteen minutes, then the effect of the charcoal will intensify. To fix the result, soak a cotton swab in citric acid diluted in water and wipe your teeth. In this case, the more often you whiten your teeth in this way, the more stable the result will be.

Love “sour” activated charcoal!

Grind one charcoal tablet into “dust”. Add half a teaspoon of water and the juice of one fourth of a lemon. Do not spare a drop of five percent vinegar. Brush your teeth with the resulting mixture. Pay special attention to “problem” areas, by the way, it perfectly helps smokers get rid of nicotine plaque. It is recommended not to wash off the mixture from the teeth immediately after brushing, but to hold it in the mouth for about ten minutes to enhance the result. Be careful with the gums, do not damage them! Do not perform this procedure more than twice a month.

Get a “coal” box!

Just grind the pack of activated charcoal into dust, by the way, whoever is afraid of what can damage the enamel – grind the charcoal in a coffee grinder. Then pour the resulting powder into a beautiful jar in the bathroom. So brush your teeth. For the night. Lack of bad breath and white and smooth teeth are guaranteed.

By the way, after all the above procedures, it is recommended not to eat or drink for ten to fifteen minutes, otherwise all your work may go down the drain.

You have a charming smile! But you also have something else. Something that will make you smile even wider.

However, all these manipulations may not help, especially if the condition of your teeth is far from ideal. In this case, of course, the most logical thing is to first contact a specialist, and then, using the above methods, maintain the whiteness of your teeth on your own. Remember that teeth cannot stay white forever without proper care. It takes a lot of effort to keep them in excellent condition, and activated charcoal alone is indispensable. Don’t forget to brush your teeth after meals, use dental floss, and don’t neglect visiting the dentist every six months. And then your smile will always be flawless and snow-white!
