Want whiter teeth? All you need is activated carbon!
Even though it may seem messy, many people have successfully and easily whitened their teeth using this ingredient.
A dark gemstone of natural medicine, charcoal is one of the most powerful natural substances that helps in treating many diseases, from dysentery to post-radiation effects. It is obtained by processing coal in a steam chamber. The steam opens the coal, increasing its surface area making it an excellent filter. Activated charcoal, or activated carbon, attracts and absorbs, and will help remove stains from your teeth.
How to whiten your teeth using active carbon.
The procedure is very simple: Crush the drugstore-bought active carbon in a bowl and mix with equal parts water. Find your desired consistency. Apply to your toothbrush and brush your teeth for 3 to 4 minutes, as if you were using regular toothpaste. You will notice the activated carbon mixture is gritty. After brushing, rinse your entire mouth with water.
You will notice minimal results even after the first brushing. This technique is excellent for removing tannins, a compound that stains teeth, found in wine and coffee.
Using activated carbon, you will have shiny white teeth within a week.
