How to Use
Whitening pens like this are easy to use with no mess and effectively remove stains for a whiter smile in as little as two days. Just twist, brush and go. The pen can be included in your regular oral care routine twice daily as recommended. Start by brushing your teeth with a toothbrush like the Colgate Optic White™+ Whitening Pen, which includes a reusable whitening pen that twists securely into the bottom of the toothbrush's handle. After a thorough brushing, just remove the top cap and twist the bottom of the pen until you see the gel on the brush tip. Apply a thin layer of whitening gel to each tooth's surface, making sure that the entire tooth's surface is in contact with the whitening gel. Don't rinse; the product needs to stay on your teeth to work.
If quick and convenient teeth whitening is your goal, then a whitening pen might be the right choice for you. To make regular improvements that stay with you, follow the directions of the product you use. Your smile is one of your most important assets, so for optimum wellness, remember to receive regular professional cleanings.
