3 Things You Can Do Instead Of Brushing With Charcoal Toothpaste

Are you still considering the charcoal toothpaste trend because it seems easy, it seems quick, it seems very accessible, and you’re really tired of your yellow smile? What if our Ankeny, IA team was to tell you that brushing with charcoal is nearly equivalent to brushing with a mouthful of rocks and that it might turn your tongue black? Would you still be interested? We didn’t really think so! While it’s not that dramatic, it can temporarily tint your soft tissues and as for the safety of charcoal, it can certainly erode and damage your teeth. Consider some other (very safe) options for attaining that white smile you really want.

#1: Stop Looking At Online Remedies

There are two things that might happen when you face the facts and realize that charcoal toothpaste isn’t a good solution for a white smile. You might come in to see us (which we recommend). Or, you might decide to try to find some other home remedy that might work better. Allow our team to kindly remind you that if you’re seeking care anywhere but our practice, there’s quite a high risk involved. Yes, you may see some initial whitening but you may experience damage that you don’t recognize until later. So, we suggest you stop looking for answers online!

#2: You Can Call Us

You can call us the second you realize you want a white smile and let us know you’d like to talk with us about the solutions we can provide for you. You can even mention that you’ve been thinking about trying to address your smile care yourself. We will set up a visit for you and our team will be ready to speak with you about options for removing stains (and to further explain why DIY remedies aren’t a wise solution).

#3: If Your Smile Is Healthy, You Can Schedule In-Office Whitening

If you’re already our patient and you’ve been keeping up with your dental care with us (and your smile is healthy), then addressing your want for a white smile right now can be solved by scheduling our in-office whitening treatment. Within just a couple of hours, you will be able to see astonishing results, as we dramatically and safely brighten up your smile.
