‘Doesn’t whiten teeth’


‘Charcoal-based toothpastes, which claim to whiten teeth, are a “marketing gimmick” which could increase the risk of tooth decay and staining, says a review in the British Dental Journal.

The charcoal products, which are increasingly popular, often contain no fluoride to help protect the teeth.

They advise people to go to their dentist for advice on bleaching, or whitening, their teeth.

And so they say don’t believe the hype, it is better to stick to using a regular fluoride-based toothpaste.’
