How to Whiten Teeth Overnight

Last Updated: October 19th, 2022

Who doesn’t want whiter teeth fast? With Colgate’s Optic White Teeth Whitening Pen, you can whiten teeth overnight when used as directed. Keep in mind it takes time to see the full results, but with consistency and by following product instructions, the Optic White Pen removes years of stains in as little as one week.

How Does the Overnight Teeth Whitening Pen Work?

First and foremost, the Colgate Optic White Teeth Whitening Pen is enamel safe and designed for no tooth sensitivity. It’s also designed to be easy to use and convenient to take on the go. The precision-tip applicator allows for precise coverage and targeting of problem areas, unlike whitening trays, which contact all teeth evenly. The Optic White Pen contains hydrogen peroxide, a clinically proven teeth whitening agent. With enough gel for 35 nightly applications, using Optic White costs less than $1 per overnight treatment (based on MSRP).

Applying the hydrogen peroxide gel is simple and mess-free. First, brush and dry your teeth. Then click the end of the Optic White pen until a small drop of whitening serum appears on the brush tip. Brush a thin, even layer of whitening serum to clean, dry teeth and allow a few seconds for it to dry. Go to sleep (4-6 hours is recommended for best whitening results) and brush your teeth when you wake up to remove the whitening serum. Then, admire your smile!

Benefits of Overnight Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening pens are great for people on the go. About the size of an ink pen, a whitening pen conveniently fits in belt bags, purses, backpacks and toiletry bags, making it easy to maintain your teeth whitening routine anywhere.

Overnight Whitening Pen vs. Whitening Trays

Overnight teeth whitening pens are an excellent solution for people who find it challenging to make time and space to use bulkier LED whitening devices. When used as directed, it doesn’t take long to apply the whitening gel, and there’s no extra time spent waiting for the product to work. You’re going to sleep anyway’ you might as well whiten while you catch some Zs.

Overnight Whitening Pen vs. Professional Whitening

While professional whitening produces faster results than an overnight pen, professional whitening requires more money than whitening pens, and may not be as convenient. Professional whitening ingredients are more concentrated, and their application requires the supervision of a dental professional. For those looking for effective results and convenience, the mess-free, no-appointment-necessary benefits of an overnight teeth whitening pen are ideal.

Can I Whiten My Teeth Every Night?

Always follow directions for your specific teeth whitening product, and do not use it longer than directed. The Colgate Optic White Pen is safe to use nightly (once daily), and you may start to see results after one week. The recommended usage cycle is two weeks at a time, but you can use the product until it is finished. The product will continue to work even if you skip a day. However, for best results, continue to use nightly as directed.
