Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Pen Review #ad

Monday, October 21, 2013 Posted by Dina N

The Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Pen is a way to whiten teeth at home. Just as the name suggests, it's shaped like a pen with a small brush on one end and whitening gel inside. The whitening gel is dispensed by twisting the top until the gel gets to the brush, then you "paint" the gel on the outer visible surfaces of your teeth.

The first time I used the pen, I twisted and twisted, until I could see the gel appear inside the center of the brush. I might have overdone it, since there is no obvious way to get the dosage right. I brushed and dried the surface of my front teeth with a tissue, as instructed, then started applying the gel. Again, it was not clear what was the right dose. The instructions on the box are short and to the point but I would appreciate knowing how much gel to use on each tooth.

The gel can be applied 2-3 times a day for a period of 14 days if there is no sensitivity. You have to be careful not to paint your gums with the gel, and the instructions warn against getting it in contact with skin, eyes, or clothes. While I am not about to try whitening my eyes, it is inevitable that the gel come in contact with the skin via my lips. I waited for 30 seconds after each application for the gel to dry but I could still taste it on my tongue. It's a minty flavor, tasting a tad stronger than a mint chewing gum. To my untrained eye, it appears that the gel washes off the tooth surface once it comes in contact with the saliva.

The pen contains 12% Hydrogen Peroxide gel and aims to provide professional results at home. It is easy to use but for me, it's hard to tell how effective it is. While I experienced no irritation from the whitening pen, using it had little whitening effect on my teeth. Smile Sciences offers another product, Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Kit, that includes the whitening pen as a touch up tool. I can see how it may be more effective that way but as a stand-alone solution, your mileage may vary.

The Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Pen can be purchased online from Smile Sciences website for $78. The Smile Sciences Teeth Whitening Kit includes trays, gel syringe, LED light, Vitamin E sticks and a whitening pen, for $299.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    It is hard to find a product that works AND isn't expensive.

    I think the pen application would make it easy to target certain areas. And I was happy to hear there wasn't much sensitivity.
