What To Know Before Trying Charcoal Teeth Whitening   In recent years activated charcoal has been touted as an all-natural method for curing any number of ills, leading to a proliferation of charcoal-based products ranging from face masks and detoxification regimens to fast-acting tooth whiteners. But what does the science have to say about this miracle whitening agent? Protecting Tooth Enamel The bottom line is that there isn’t enough evidence currently to determine whether activated charcoal is an effective whitener, and many dentists are concerned that the abrasion caused during application may weaken tooth enamel prematurely. While users may see results initially, the long-term damage to enamel can leave teeth and gums feeling sensitive or irritated. Additionally, beneath a tooth’s enamel is a naturally yellowish layer known as dentin. When the hard outer layer gets worn away by abrasive treatments like activated charcoal, teeth may look even more stained than they were beforehand. Once enamel has been worn down, restoration work is needed to return teeth to their original whiteness. ADA-Approved Treatments ADA-approved over-the-counter treatments may also cause temporary sensitivity after use, but they have also been proven to be safe and effective. If you have deeper stains or are concerned about irritation or sensitivity, visiting your dentist is your best bet for getting a brighter smile quickly and safely.
