A convenient and affordable way to get whiter teeth in just two days? Colgate claims all you need is their new Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen. The whitening pen stores inside the handle of the toothbrush for all-in-one convenience. Simply brush with your regular toothpaste and then apply whitening gel with the included whitening pen and then store it again inside the handle of the brush. The toothbrush has specially designed polishing bristles and stain removers to help remove surface stains. It’s that easy, but does it work?
I have been using the Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen for a few days and if you like to apply your teeth whitener as a gel, then this is for you. I prefer whitening strips myself because something about swallowing the gel I just applied to my teeth skives me. However, this whitening pen contains hydrogen peroxide, which has been proven to whiten beyond the basic surfaces stains. So it’s better than using nothing. And it’s true, after a couple of days of using both morning and night I have noticed my teeth are a shade whiter and brighter – and it did not require a second thought.
The price alone is worth the gamble. It’s less expensive than a box of whitening strips and obviously a professional whitening session. One caveat though…the brush doesn’t fit into any toothbrush holder I have in my house since the handle is so large.
