Activated Charcoal: Holistic Whitener, Without Chemicals

Activated Charcoal: Holistic Whitener, Without Chemicals

Publish date:     Author: with insights from Pooneh Ram, DDS and Dr. Paris Sabo
Topics: activated charcoal,  mouthwash,  teeth,  toothpaste,  whitening,  

When tooth enamel breaks down from daily habits like drinking coffee it reveals dentin, a yellow-tinged tissue, resulting in stained or discolored teeth. But you don’t need chemicals to whiten your smile. Instead reach for natural ingredients like activated charcoal to achieve a healthier mouth and noticeably brighter teeth.

What is Activated Charcoal?

Charcoal is made from coal, wood or other substances and becomes activated when high temperatures combine with a gas or activating agent to expand its surface area.

Benefits of Activated Charcoal 

Activated charcoal is a tasteless and odorless powder that works by a process of adsorption, when elements bind to a surface, reducing the toxicity of chemicals. Here are some of the benefits of activated charcoal:

  • Whitens teeth
  • Purifies skin and hair
  • Relieves bloating
  • Antidote for poisons

How Does Activated Charcoal Whiten Teeth? 

When charcoal is activated, it becomes a highly porous substance that binds toxins and adsorbs tannins (pigments found in various food and drink), while removing stains and whitening teeth in the process.

Dr. Brite Uses Activated Charcoal 

Dr. Brite sources a bamboo-derived activated charcoal for our all-natural toothpaste and mouthwash formulas to help remove plaque and whiten teeth. The charcoal is activated at a higher than average temperature of 3,000 degrees, which creates a more refined, better-quality ingredient.
