Seven best charcoal toothpastes for a pearly-white smile

Okay, so what's the situation with activated charcoal toothpaste? Is it actually a gift from above and it's just being stepped on? Truth is, it has a big reputation for being slightly harsh on your teeth. But according to Harper's Bazaar, charcoal actually won't hurt your teeth unless you leave it on for extended periods of time.

Brushing your teeth with charcoal toothpaste will tackle anything in its way including tarter, build-up, and bacteria. If you think you may be sensitive to charcoal toothpaste you can add this into your nightly routine or every couple of nights to keep your teeth white and clean.

Without further ado, here are seven of the best charcoal toothpaste options to make you (and your teeth) shine.
