On the quest to find a somewhat natural process to gradually whiten my teeth, I’ve tried three different things.
First, I used some well known brand-name whitening strips.
Then, I tried some sort of gel I received from a Groupon which had me put trays in my mouth over night.
When neither of these methods worked quite like I’d expected (they really didn’t work at all), I decided to share my experience with a Forever White teeth whitening pen review.
From what I’ve read, consumers mostly said that they seem to work better on ‘yellow teeth’ opposed to ‘grey teeth’ and that you would need to apply the whitener several times (or draw on your teeth several times).
According to Wikipedia, “To whiten the natural tooth shade, bleaching is required. It is a common procedure in cosmetic dentistry, and a number of different techniques are used by dental professionals. Many different products are also marketed for home use. Techniques include bleaching strips, bleaching pen, bleaching gel, and laser tooth whitening. Bleaching methods generally use carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide.”
I had used pure hydrogen peroxide on my teeth mixed with a little baking soda and I wouldn’t recommend it- it’s not really good for you to put chemicals in your system.
Carbamide peroxide doesn’t really whiten as well, but at least it doesn’t hurt your gums as much.
Anyway, I tried two different whitening pens.
The first was the Colgate Whitening Pen- which can be found here.
This pen came in a kit with some kind of special teeth whitening tooth brush and tooth paste.
The pen itself had a blue tip, and I applied it daily after brushing.
Two things were important- you have to make sure your teeth are dry or it won’t stick.
The other thing is this pen dries out just like a marker if you leave the cap off.
I decided to go with something more focused on teeth whitening.
The ‘Dazzing White Instant Whitening Pen’ promised to show results in two days.
A link to this whitening pen can be found here.
This pen worked much better than the one from Colgate.
It said it would work for up to fifty uses and I probably used it thoroughly thirty times and it really did show results.
The taste was kind of tinny, but my teeth were definitely brighter and less dingy.
I paid $29.99 for this whitening pen, and it was definitely worth it.
I would highly recommend it for someone looking for a good quality pen.
If you are new to the whole ‘teeth whitening‘ world (there are actually people addicted to it and are treated for that addiction called ‘bleachorexia’), you can find out more by using this link.
I used to just whiten my teeth with the Photoshop app on all of my pictures online, but when I found out that I could do it in real life for a reasonable cost, I decided to go for it.
Good luck and happy whitening.
