Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Pen Review

I have a really great new way to help you stay ahead of the stains that appear on your teeth! It's called Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Pen and it is an RX strength grade so you will see professional results! You can actually get several shades whiter in just a week! Of course, you have to use this product twice a day to get that result, so keep that in mind.
I am all for quick and easy and so I loved this concept. It is easy to apply and there is no messy trays or having to fill something and put on your teeth and then have to take out and wash when you are over. Can you tell I have done some of the other more complicated ones? I have even gone the dentist way and tried theirs so I know the difference and the cost associated with getting your teeth whiter.
Having white and pretty teeth has always been one of my goals since I do drink Sweet Tea (who in the south doesn't drink tea, whether sweet or unsweet)? At first I used a straw until I realized that all that puckering makes lines around your mouth, so I knew it would be cheaper to clean my teeth than to have some type of procedure done to get rid of the lines, so I have been diligent in choosing teeth whiteners that do the job with as little fuss as possible.
It's a very slim pen so it can fit anywhere, in your handbag, clutch or even a pocket if need be. This product has been designed by dentists so I know it's a good quality, less expensive and very easy to use.  I love products that take all the hassle away, especially in this type of product when I am constantly losing track of time, this keeps me from having to do a lot of prep time and clean up time.
You will wear the product for approximately 20 minutes a day and it's safe to use for up to 10 days in a row. Which is good because the pen has about 14 days worth of product in it. You will definitely see an improvement by the time the pen is empty. Each pen is $78 and that is actually pretty good considering you are getting the RX strength teeth whitening product. Also, there is an expiration date on each box, so you will always know when your pen has expired.
It's very easy to use. Just take the cap off and you will see that it has a small brush on one end. You will twist the other end just a touch and the gel will come out on the brush. Carefully, brush your teeth, just like when you are brushing your teeth with toothpaste and coat the teeth or all of them that need whitening. I have a few caps so it does help with some staining but won't change the true color of the caps or crowns. I believe it is the same for veneers. Then you just leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse just like you would if you had mouthwash and you are done! Do this twice a day.
Ingredients: 12% Hydrogen Peroxide, Propylene Glycol, Kosher Glycerine, Peppermint essential oil, Triethanolamine, deionized water, Xylitol

They do have other products available that offer even better results. There is one that says it can change your shade up to 10 times whiter in a month! Some of the products come with a LED light to help speed up the process. I guess it is all in what you need to accomplish.  You can purchase these products separately or in kits, depending on what you need. I do have a LED light and do use it from time to time, so it's very safe.
This is the one from Smile Sciences. Mine isn't but they should work the same. What they do is help the process work faster. So, it's really up to you and it's not necessary to have one unless you are pushed for time. You will hold it to the teeth for the time you have the gel on and that is pretty much all there is to it.
Since I am just maintaining, I am happy with the quick pens because they do exactly what I need. If you have never used any kind of teeth whitening, it might prove beneficial to you to start out more aggressive and then switch to maintenance like I am doing.
One of the neat things that Smile Sciences does is make a Day and Night Pen so that you are getting a little change with the Night Pen. That one you can put on and go to sleep and then rinse off the next morning. I have done it this way also, but not with a pen, but with a tray. It was a little weird at first but I got used to it. This won't require a tray, so I don't think you will notice anything while sleeping. And you can also purchase a kit that has the LED light with it too!
Ingredients: Carbamide peroxide, Hydrogen peroxide, potassium nitrate, water, peppermint oil flavor, Glycerin carbomer , sodium hydroxide, disodium EDTA

I think as you say these pens are great, and if you keep on using you will see results. I believe along with the pens it's important to make regular dentist visits too, you can more often than not use their additional hygienist services to give your teeth a really good clean. They will not only be white, but healthy too.
