Have you heard about the new charcoal teeth whitening craze? Spoiler alert: as your dentist in Calais, we don’t recommend it. The thinking behind the fad is that the substance absorbs stains from the surface of teeth to make them appear whiter. But we’re not convinced, and the American Dental Association isn’t, either. Aside from just sounding unpleasant, rubbing abrasive charcoal is certainly harmful to your tooth enamel. Please don’t do it. For impressive smile transformations, ditch the do-it-yourself options and partner with your dentist, instead.
