White teeth are a necessity for a great smile, but coffee, wine, tea, sports drinks, and cola can yellow your teeth over time. If you are looking for a simple way to whiten your teeth at home, Colgates new Optic White toothbrush and whitening pen can help. This premium toothbrush has a built-in whitening pen for convenient application.
The product is very easy to use. Simply brush your teeth as normal, then remove the pen from the bottom of the toothbrush. Apply the gel to your teeth, insert the pen back into the toothbrush, and go about your day. The gel adheres to your teeth immediately and does not need to be rinsed out.
The whitening pen can be used two times per day. The gel will last up to eight weeks, depending upon how much you apply at once. I would recommend a lighter application, since youre not supposed to rinse out any excess.
Although Im not a huge fan of how the gel tastes, it seems to be doing the trick. I fell and chipped one of my front teeth about 10 years ago. The resin they used for the repair was a perfect match at the time, but since then Ive noticed my teeth getting yellower.
After about a week of using this product, I can see that my teeth are closer to the color of the resin. Theyre not quite back to being a perfect match yet, but Im still very pleased with the results.
I have been just using my regular toothpaste with this toothbrush and whitening pen, but Colgate recommends adding its Optic White toothpaste and Optic White mouthwash to your routine to improve your results.
