The Teeth Whitening Pen is our number one product crush. A must-have for whitening touchups and to keep your shiny whites looking fresh.
WHAT IS A WHITENING PEN?
It’s a portable brush pen, that contains our advanced, fast-acting whitening gel (18% carbamide peroxide). A lot of people people love this product because it is handy to target stained areas of the teeth accurately, plus it is very easy to use.
HOW TO USE A WHITENING PEN?
Your teeth must be dry before application. The pen has a dial at its tip. Just twist it a couple of times, and dab a thin layer of gel onto the front of your teeth, taking care to avoid your gum line, or lips. We recommend applying to your front 6-8 teeth, as the back teeth will not be noticed. For flash treatment, hold a smile for 60 seconds, and then relax. Or, for tougher stains, wear for 15-30 minutes. Then, simply brush off with a toothbrush or cloth several hours later. It’s advised to read and follow the teeth whitening instructions properly, to avoid gum irritation or incorrect usage.
ARE TEETH WHITENING PENS EFFECTIVE?
The effectiveness of a teeth whitening pen will vary for each person. Factors that impact the results you are likely to see include the current colour of your teeth and the number of applications you have completed. For best results, we recommend using a whitening pen in combination with one of our Teeth Whitening Kits which includes a LED whitening light, and mouth tray, which exposes your teeth to the whitening gel over a longer duration.
The teeth whitening pen is a great companion to maintain a vibrant, whiter smile in between.
HOW LONG DO THE WHITENING RESULTS LAST?
Results can vary depending on the individual and frequency of whitening. The majority of people will be able to whiten their teeth within 1-2 weeks. The more yellow versus grey colour you have in your teeth, the better the whitening effect.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE A TEETH WHITENING PEN?
You may use the teeth whitening pen up to twice a day. We recommend using for periods longer than 14 days only under the supervision of a dentist.
DO TEETH WHITENING PENS EXPIRE?
All of our Teeth Whitening Pens carry an expiry of 1 year from date of purchase. They will still be safe to use after this time, however, we do not recommend using past this time, as the effectiveness of the whitening gel will be lessened. You should store your whitening pen in a dry, cool environment.
ARE TEETH WHITENING PENS SAFE?
Yes! Research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth with trays using a carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide formula is safe for healthy teeth and gums. It is essential to follow the directions of use supplied for each product and not go past the recommended treatment duration. Most research available was initially done with a 10% carbamide peroxide concentration, however there is no literature that we have come across showing any structural changes or irreversible damage to the tooth structure whatsoever.
CAN I USE A TEETH WHITENING PEN WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?
Due to lack of research evidence, experts recommend pregnant and breastfeeding women should avoid whitening products or procedures to ensure the baby’s safety.
