Want whiter teeth without the annoying, plastic mouthguard that inevitably gives you lockjaw? You should try brushing with activated charcoal, like this one by the Pro Teeth Whitening Co.

Charcoal isn’t best known for its teeth whitening properties, but it actually does a whole lot more for your mouth than just add a little sparkle and shine. In addition to making your pearly whites, well, pearly, charcoal powder is proven to help fight cavities, gingivitis, and other damaging bacteria. Additionally, activated charcoal powder frees you from the reins of halitosis.

Other forms of teeth whitening are costly and sometimes even dangerous, but this painless and simple alternative doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or animal byproducts, so it’s even safe for vegans! The Pro Teeth Whitening Co’s special formula is made with bentonite clay for added enamel protection. Although scrubbing black powder on your teeth may look a little funny, reviewers claim this product is gold.

If you shop soon, you can try it out for over half off. It usually retails for around $30, but Amazon has it on sale for just $10.99.
