Spending a small fortune on painful teeth whitening treatments is no longer necessary to achieve a stunning smile. With the Dr. Brite teeth whitening pens you can naturally remove stains and brighten your pearly whites with gentle solutions and convenient application process. The Dr. Brite oral care line offers two antioxidant-rich whitening pens, but how do you know which one is best for you? Below is a breakdown of the key benefits to each formula.

Antioxidant-Infused Teeth Whitening Pen

  • Food grade hydrogen peroxide is used as a safe bleaching agent
  • Vitamin C helps prevent gum disease by supporting the production of collagen
  • Whitens teeth 2 shades in as little as 2 days
  • No harmful chemicals, preservatives or artificial flavors

Peroxide-Free Teeth Whitening Pen

What is Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide?

You may be wondering why we even offer a peroxide-free pen. But before we get to that, here’s some information about hydrogen peroxide and how it helps whiten teeth. There are many different grades or strengths of hydrogen peroxide, a substance comprised of hydrogen and oxygen, intended for different applications. Food grade hydrogen peroxide (35%) is used in the production of well, food for its antibacterial properties and also oral care products as a teeth bleaching agent.

How Does Hydrogen Peroxide Whiten Teeth?

Hydrogen peroxide penetrates your tooth's enamel, which alters the tooth's color beyond its natural shade by affecting the dentin (the hard substance of the tooth that surrounds the central core of nerves and blood vessels) layer of your teeth. Our Antioxidant-Infused Teeth Whitening Pen is made with food grade hydrogen peroxide that can painlessly whiten your teeth by two shades in as little as two days.

Should I Use a Peroxide-Free Whitening Pen?

The fast-acting Antioxidant-Infused Whitening Pen formula is gentle enough for most users, but for those with sensitive teeth or intolerances to hydrogen peroxide, we suggest trying our Peroxide-Free Teeth Whitening Pen. If hot, cold, sweet or acidic food and drink, or breathing in cold air is painful or causes discomfort you may have sensitive teeth. Otherwise, we highly recommend our Antioxidant-Infused Teeth Whitening Pen because it will provide better results, in a shorter amount of time. Here are some insider tips for applying our teeth whitening pens.

Is Hydrogen Peroxide Safe Enough for Kids?

Yes! Once children have all of their adult teeth, they can safely use both Dr. Brite teeth whitening pens. Kids typically have fewer stains due to their age and diet, but the food grade hydrogen peroxide in our Antioxidant-Infused Whitening Pens will not cause any harm. If you have any further questions, consult with your children’s dentist or email us at
