How To Whiten Your Teeth

So you're wanting to whiten your teeth but you don't have the money for expensive dentist visits and you don't feel like your enamel being stripped from your teeth either. I have a quick fix that is absolutely worth it! The simple solution is activated charcoal. You can buy activated charcoal at select pharmacies. I couldn't find it at Walgreens, CVS or Rite Aid but I did find it at a mom and pop pharmacy for right at $12 for $125 tablets.

Now, you may be asking how CHARCOAL is safe and effective so here is the answer to that as well! Activated charcoal is NOT the same as charcoal you grill with. This is a VERY important fact to know. Activated charcoal is porous and attracts the stains (tannins) on your teeth. Charcoal you grill with is not porous and contains impurities.

Because activated charcoal draws tannins and toxins from your body it is also known to absorb any type of medication you may be taking. So, please be aware of this before you apply the charcoal for teeth whitening purposes. If you're unsure just do a little more poking and prodding to find an answer.
Quick fact: activated charcoal can be taken to cure gas, overdoses and poisonings, etc. 

How to whiten your teeth:

1. Dissolve 1-2 tablets in a small (dipping sauce size) container. 
2. Brush your teeth as normal.
3. Use another toothbrush to brush the mixture onto your teeth.
4. Do this until you feel like you're satisfied. 
5. Rinse your mouth.
6. I like to brush again just to ensure there isn't charcoal left over.
7. Repeat 2-3 times a week. The following photo was taken after five applications.
