Activated charcoal naturally binds with surface staining substances such as coffee, wine, and tobacco, so that then enables it to remove the discoloration, leaving behind beautifully whitened teeth. Our charcoal toothpaste contains extremely fine activated charcoal, which means that the formulation is tough on stains and gentle on your tooth enamel.
The ability of charcoal to whiten is because of its porous nature, which allows it to absorb stains and also due to its slightly abrasive nature. As tooth enamel is not able to regrow, it's important to use a charcoal toothpaste such as ours, which is made with very fine charcoal. This gives you the ability to see all the benefits without having to worry about any risks.
After just a few days, you'll start to see a difference. When I started using charcoal toothpaste, I found that after three days that I could see that my teeth were becoming less stained. Then, after a week, the results were so amazing that a friend asked me where I'd had my teeth whitened!
You can use your charcoal toothpaste every day in the same way you would use a normal non-whitening type of paste. So, just cover the top of your wet toothbrush bristles with the activated charcoal. Then use a circular motion and brush for around 2-3 minutes. For the best results, we recommend that you gently brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
We spent a long time researching all of the different charcoal teeth whitener products and then speaking with a number of manufacturers until we finally made our decision. We believe that our toothpaste is the best on the market for providing our clients with great whitening results and for its very affordable price.
When cared for correctly, a bamboo toothbrush will last just as long as a plastic one. We recommend that you rinse the toothbrush after every use and then keep it dry until the next time you use it. Dentists generally recommend that toothbrushes are replaced every two to three months or when the bristles start to become misshapen. When you swap your old toothbrush for a new one, it helps to keep your teeth as clean as possible.
A bamboo toothbrush is designed to be just as effective at cleaning your teeth as any other manual toothbrush would be. Your teeth will be sparkling clean, and you'll also get the feel-good factor from knowing that you're not contributing to the enormous problems associated with plastic waste.
Every single year we throw away millions of plastic toothbrushes. These then end up in landfill sites polluting our earth or in the ocean, creating a risk for marine life. Bamboo toothbrushes have developed an enormous following because they are entirely biodegradable. Bamboo is also one of the fastest-growing plants in the world, and it releases up to 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere compared to other plants.
The choices out there can be confusing, but we found that charcoal toothpaste quite simply gave us the best results at a price that we could afford. It quickly shifted surface stains and plaque and left your mouth feeling really clean. Not needing to go to an office for whitening treatments was a huge advantage when we already had busy lives; I'm not sure how we would have fitted that in!
The average cost of in-office whitening is $650, and the results are said to be unpredictable. That's a lot of money to pay out without knowing if it's going to work for you. Professional whitening depends on things like your age and the type of staining. It's also not a permanent solution, home maintenance with a low-percentage bleach will be needed.
Teeth whitening carried out in an office is generally considered a safe procedure though there are side effects that you might experience. You may find that your teeth become more sensitive after treatment, and you may also experience irritated gums. I already had some sensitivity, usually when eating something cold like ice cream, and I definitely didn't want to make that worse. Natural teeth whitening with a charcoal toothpaste was a much better option.
When you're using charcoal toothpaste, you'll generally start to see results within a few days. Now it does depend on the types of stains you have and how long they have been there, but the charcoal will help to shift exterior discoloration from the surface of your teeth without altering your enamel.
I've been delighted with the results that I get from charcoal toothpaste. I am, I have to admit, a heavy coffee drinker, I need my caffeine! But my teeth were starting to become stained and discolored, and I was becoming very conscious of the off-white shade that was developing. I'm trying to cut back on the coffee, but in the meantime, the results I'm getting from using my charcoal toothpaste puts a bright white smile on my face every morning!
Talking from personal experience, it has to be charcoal toothpaste. I started to feel how clean my teeth were within days, and then I saw a big difference in how white they were by the end of the first week. I also liked that this was a much more natural way of whitening my teeth than having them bleached.
