Benefits & Risks of Activated Charcoal to Whiten Teeth (Doctor’s Advice)

[googleplusauthor]

Using activated charcoal to whiten your teeth is the new craze! But does it actually whiten your teeth? What are the benefits of activated charcoal for teeth whitening? Are there any risks to using abrasive charcoal toothpaste? Dr. Nemeth answers these questions and more!

Dr. Nemeth thinks that if it whitens your teeth significantly it could possibly be very abrasive. No long term studies about what activated charcoal does in the mouth have been completed. It could cause the enamel on your teeth to erode away, and it is likely to cause notching, or thinning of the tooth.

It may also irritate the gums and cause the gum tissue to become red. Also if you have crowns, veneers, or fillings in your mouth you have to be very careful with ANY teeth whitening products.

The FDA spends lots of time clearing drugs and other toothpastes. This powder certainly hasn’t been cleared to be used in the mouth in any way. We don’t know the long term effects of activated charcoal to whiten teeth, so Dr. Nemeth advises that you be careful and use this teeth whitening technique sparingly!
