Despite what some social media influencers are claiming, charcoal-packed tooth products are not a tried-and-true method of achieving your dream smile.
Here are three of the top reasons why we recommend skipping this craze altogether.
1. Their Claims Are Not Backed By Extensive Research.
A few client testimonials are nice, but it’s not a sure sign that a given product is actually up to par—or that it is even safe to use! Be very wary of dramatic proclamations and supposedly miraculous “before and after” snaps. There might just be more to the story.
2. They Are (Probably) Not ADA-Approved.
You know how we feel about the American Dental Association Seal of Approval, right? It’s essential! It assures you that a potential purchase has been evaluated by the experts. So, not having this is kind of worrisome.
3. They Are Not A “Hack” Or “Shortcut” To A Healthy Smile.
The only way to end up with an enviable grin is to, well, take care of your mouth, gums and teeth. Truly. Gimmicky gadgets and trendy tooth treatments may cover up or cloak, on a purely superficial level, oral health issues, but it will not actually solve them.
Hope to see you again very soon!
