¿Realmente funciona el carbón activo para blanquear los dientes?

Does activated charcoal really work to whiten teeth?

The effectiveness of toothpastes with activated charcoal is a debated topic. These toothpastes are often promoted as whitening and stain removing agents due to the absorbent properties of activated charcoal.

Activated charcoal is known for its ability to absorb chemicals and toxins, and is used in various fields, such as medicine to treat poisoning. In the context of toothpastes, it is argued that activated charcoal can absorb particles and stains from the tooth surface, thus contributing to a whiter appearance of teeth.

However, scientific evidence to date on the long-term effectiveness and possible side effects of activated charcoal toothpastes is limited and often contradictory. Some studies suggest that these pastes may have a superficial whitening effect , but others question their long-term safety and effectiveness.

Today, the only internal whiteners that exist and are scientifically proven are peroxides and PAP.

Our FORTE dental strips have a PAP-based formulation that offers an effectiveness of 83.3%, respecting the enamel and gums and without releasing free radicals.
