The TikTok Viral Teeth Whitening Pen

The TikTok Viral Teeth Whitening Pen

A recent study showed 32% of us want whiter teeth, and four in ten people under 35 have already had some form of whitening treatment. But when it comes to banishing stains, not all brands are created equal. Recommended by countless industry insiders, Spotlight Oral Care is a brand we rate – and its whitening products are no exception. Here’s why its Teeth Whitening Pen is the product we turn to time and again…


Remind me about Spotlight Oral Care…

Founded by sisters and dentists Dr Lisa and Dr Vanessa Creaven in 2016, Spotlight Oral Care has fast become one of the hottest oral hygiene brands. Making luxury dental hygiene accessible for all, its science-backed products guarantee a healthier, whiter smile in as little as 14 days. Chances are you’ve probably spied its products on your IG feed already – think the bestselling Sonic Toothbrush, Water Flosser and Whitening Strips. But it’s the Teeth Whitening Pen that the team can’t keep on the shelves – frequently going viral and loved by A-listers and beauty editors alike, it’s a foolproof way to keep stains at bay. The Teeth Whitening Pen has become something of a cult product in recent months, not only is it constantly selling out, but it promises instant results for a brighter smile. 

After just the second use, I noticed stains disappearing. I’m almost done with my first pen and will definitely be buying another.

So what makes the Whitening Pen unique?

Forget fiddly trays and tooth sensitivity. Spotlight Oral Care’s Whitening Pen takes the hassle out of whitening and takes at-home whitening to the next level. A targeted treatment to minimise staining, there really is nothing else like it out there. With whitening hydrogen peroxide to brighten residual stains from tea, coffee and red wine, as opposed to merely covering them up like many other whitening products, the pen delivers the perfect amount of gel per use. Simply click the bottom of the pen to dispense a tiny amount of tooth-brightening gel, apply it to your teeth and leave for five minutes before rinsing. The clever brush makes application easy.

Why should you use it?

Here’s a quick refresher: your teeth are made up of an inner dentin layer and a hard outer enamel layer, which protects the teeth. When you eat and drink, a film gradually forms on the top of your teeth. Brushing gets rid of some of this film, and your dentist can clean it away completely, but stains in this film eventually get into the enamel and at that point the only thing that can help is an oxidation reaction to break them up. In short, hydrogen peroxide is your friend here, and it comes fully loaded in the Whitening Pen, making dissolving even the toughest of stains a breeze. 

I noticed a difference within only a few days. I’ve been using it for two weeks now and my teeth are noticeably whiter.

Who’s it for?

If you drink lots of tea and coffee, or pigmented foods such as beetroot, turmeric and curries, keeping your teeth pearly white will be more of a challenge. But Spotlight Oral Care’s Whitening Pen has you covered without the need for clunky trays or gels. Compact in size, keep it in your handbag, desk drawer or on your bedside table, to ensure you get your daily dose.

Anything else?

Given the mouth is 50 times more absorbent than our skin, Spotlight Oral Care has gone above and beyond to ensure its formulas are clean, meaning no nasties will be actively absorbed into the bloodstream. The Whitening Pen – and all Spotlight Oral Care products – are cruelty free, vegan friendly and only contain clean, active ingredients to support your smile’s health.
