A Pen For Your Pain!
We love to eat yummy foodstuffs that can stain our teeth. Colored substances, tea, coffee, red sauce, red wine, cigarettes, etc all of these account for the staining of the teeth. Other factors like aging and eating tobacco and other environmental factors can also make the teeth stain. Instead of worrying about the problem, it is now time to find the solution to this without any delay.
There are a lot of teeth whitening treatments in the market and they have been trending on various social media platforms by beauty bloggers and beauty experts. But not all of them are portable enough to carry around in our makeup kits. But hey, you wished and it came true! Teeth whitening pens are the new add ons to the teeth whitening set that is being crazed around.
What Are Teeth Whitening Pens?
These pens look just like regular pens to us but can be amazing in their work. These pens contain hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (just like every other teeth whitening product). Apart from being highly portable these pens are also very economical and fit right into our budget.
How Do They Work?
Hydrogen peroxide present in these pens is broken down due to the chemical reactions that take place after applying them. Due to this break down of hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide, the tooth enamel is oxidized. The oxidation process leads to the discoloration of the teeth, thus making them whiter in shade.
Benefits Of Teeth Whitening Pens
Easy To Use
Unlike other methods of teeth whitening that expect you to make sure that they stay intact, pens are easier. All you need to do is brush it on your teeth and let it stay for a couple of minutes before you wash it off.
Easy breezy right?
- Convenient To Carry
These pens are so portable just as the name suggests, you could even happily carry it around in your pocket or in your purse! I think this is the literal meaning of getting everything in your pockets. Haha!
Teeth whitening kits or strips are effective but sometimes expensive. Unlike these treatments, teeth whitening pens are rather pocket-friendly, both literally and metaphorically. They will give you the same results just as the ones that kits and strips can do. After using these pens, you won’t be able to stop smiling, trust me.
Application of this pen on to your teeth is very easy. Even after application, you need not wait for a long time like you had to in the case of other teeth whitening methods. 15-20 minutes are all that this pen desires from you to achieve amazing results.
Risks Of Teeth Whitening Pens
Although these pens are super flexible and portable, there are some risk factors that you need to keep in mind
May Damage Your Enamel
The chances of abrasion of your enamel, while you use these pens, depends on the frequency of use. Excessive use of teeth whitening pens could cause damage to your teeth.
May Not Cover Your Entire Teeth
As this is a pen, it might not be able to reach some portions of the teeth. It is studied that 80-85% of the teeth area is covered with the pen.
Not Suitable For Diabetic And Pregnant Females
Using these pens is not recommended for those who are pregnant and have diabetes.
Apart from these risks, teeth whitening pens are really a wonderful option to get a white and a bright smile. You must consider using them right if you are into oral hygiene. Use one, before it is too late. After all, the pen is mightier right?
