Green formulas and white teeth! Which toothpaste should you use? You’ve got lots of choice! There are more and more fluoride-free toothpastes with mint or tea tree oils appearing on store shelves. How refreshing! Activated charcoal: this compound made from bone, peat, charcoal, olives or sawdust isn’t just the king of facemasks (or water filtration systems). A powerful “impurity magnet,” it can also rid teeth of small food particles and unwanted stains, making them immaculate. Be sure not to overdo it, however! Its abrasive effect can damage enamel, increasing tooth sensitivity and vulnerability to cavities. Brushing with it a few times per month is enough. Coconut oil: its anti-bacterial action helps slow down the appearance of plaque, prevents gingivitis and whitens your teeth… all without damaging the enamel, making it ideal for daily use!
