Does Activated Charcoal Whiten Teeth?

20 July 22.

Activated charcoal is used in products such as supplements, soaps, shampoos, masks, and even toothpaste. Black teeth whitening powder may look strange, but manufacturers claim it makes teeth brighter. Activated charcoal may be popular, but can it really whiten teeth?


What is activated charcoal?

Activated carbon is a fine-grained black powder made from a variety of natural substances, such as coconut shells, olive kernels, slow-burning wood, and peat. The powder is activated when oxidized under extreme heat. Activated carbon is very porous and highly adsorptive. It also has a wide surface area.


Unlike absorbent substances, the adsorptive nature of activated charcoal allows it to bind to toxins and odors rather than absorb (assimilate) them. Activated charcoal should not be confused with charcoal used for barbecuing.


Although similar, barbecue charcoal is manufactured as a fuel that releases carbon dioxide when heated. It may have a carcinogenic effect on health. Activated charcoal, on the other hand, does not contain these types of toxins.

The adsorptive properties of activated charcoal have been cited in the medical literature for centuries. In the early 1800s, activated charcoal began to gain importance as a treatment for accidental ingestion of poisons. Because it prevents certain types of poisons from being absorbed from the intestine into the bloodstream, it is still used for this purpose today.


There is some scientific evidence and a wealth of anecdotal information about other benefits and uses of activated charcoal. You can find activated charcoal in face masks and shampoos. Because of its ability to bind to toxins, some people believe activated charcoal can also whiten teeth.


How does charcoal whiten your teeth?

Activated charcoal is very porous and has a huge surface area. This surface area gives the charcoal the ability to adsorb other substances (meaning they stick to its surface of it). When used on teeth, activated charcoal can encourage plaque, bacteria, and stain particles to cling to it, taking them with it as it's rinsed off.


How often to Use Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening?

I recommend using activated charcoal to whiten teeth once daily, three days in a row. For more deeply stained teeth, brush with activated charcoal five days in a row. (You can even add some loose charcoal powder to your oil pulling routine for a daily cleansing and whitening boost.)

You can find a range of dental products containing activated charcoal on store shelves, from activated charcoal teeth whitening powder to teeth whitening kits. Products containing this ingredient claim to remove coffee stains, wine stains, and plaque.


Advantages of using activated charcoal

The oral health benefits of using activated charcoal are obvious when used in conjunction with regular oral hygiene practices such as regular brushing and flossing. So, if you're wondering if the positive benefits are real, then yes, they are. The benefits include.


They can remove certain stains from the surface of your teeth: Due to their abrasive nature, activated charcoal can remove stains from the first layer of tooth enamel.


Inexpensive: You can choose to buy activated charcoal teeth whitening powder or just mix charcoal with regular toothpaste. Whichever you prefer, it is cheaper than teeth whitening treatments.


It helps relieve chronic bad breath (halitosis) and reduces toxins in the mouth.


It grinds and polishes teeth: due to its abrasive properties, regular brushing can smooth out the roughness of the outside of your teeth.

How to Use Activated Charcoal for Teeth Whitening?

We've established that whitening your teeth with charcoal doesn't mean you can pick up a bag of charcoal from your local gas station and start smearing it on your teeth. You can buy medically safe activated charcoal from health food stores and online in several different forms.


These include.





Whitening strips

Whitening pens

Pills are primarily used for ingestion to treat internal problems. In theory, you can grind them up and add water to form a paste - but there are much less time-consuming ways to get the same results.
