Activated Coconut Charcoal with Baking Soda
Most of us at some point wish we had a better smile... but dental treatments can be so costly, painful and time consuming. Today’s modern habits of coffee and tea drinking, alcohol consumption, and even just consuming different foods day-to-day can cause our teeth to become stained.
Teeth whitening isn’t about creating an unnatural lightness to a person’s teeth. It’s about returning teeth to their cleanest, most natural state, by removing stains. A great way to achieve this is by using activated charcoal.
Using charcoal to whiten teeth is simple, natural and easy. Activated charcoal treatments essentially give teeth a deep clean, leaving them with a whiter finish. Charcoal is an abrasive substance which lifts stains and plaque from teeth.
Benefits of brushing with charcoal just once a fortnight
- Noticeably whiter teeth
- Cleaner teeth
- Fresher breath.
How to use Activated Charcoal
- Wet a clean toothbrush
- Dip the damp toothbrush into the charcoal powder
- Brush your teeth as normal for 1-2 minutes paying attention to more stained areas
- Rise mouth well with water.
Even though charcoal is considered a more natural alternative to teeth whitening, Bondi Smile recommend that its use should be limited to once a week or once a fortnight. Activated charcoal should not replace a good toothpaste.
Over use of charcoal for teeth cleaning can lead to the wearing down of tooth enamel, as it is a naturally abrasive material. Bondi Smile’s activated charcoal treatment lifts stains painlessly, but if sensitivity occurs, limit product use.
