Listerine Quick Dissolving Strips Review

If you have never heard of tooth whitening strips before it is because they are a relatively new innovation in tooth bleaching products. It has been just over 10 years since the first teeth whitener strips were introduced. Since that time, whitener strips have matured and are now considered a powerful, safe, and effective do-it-yourself tooth bleaching method.

Listerine whitening strips have several distinct advantages over competitors. First, these strips dissolve in the mouth completely leaving no plastic liner to remove after use like conventional whitener strips do. This makes Listerine strips more convenient, particularly for busy schedules. Likewise, Listerine whitening strips are far more flexible than conventional plastic strips, making it easy to speak normally as your teeth are being whitened. They also double as a breath freshener by killing bad breath germs.



Listerine Strips – Analysis

These strips are indeed more convenient than conventional plastic strips. Application usually takes 10-15 seconds but can be tricky at first as the strip will stick to anything moist it comes in contact with, including your lip. It takes 5-10 minutes for the strip to dissolve in your mouth but this time does not really matter because you can do anything you would normally be doing, except eating or drinking. Everyone varies but generally after one week of consistent use you should notice a hint of whiter teeth and after two weeks it should definitely be noticeable.

In conclusion we give Listerine Whitening Quick Dissolving Strips a full 5/5 as an excellent 10 second apply-and-forget tooth whitener and breath freshener aimed at the modern busy lifestyle.

Listerine Whitening Pen Review

The Listerine Whitening Pen is another innovative tooth bleaching product from Listerine. The teeth bleaching pen is small, portable, easy-to-use, and ideal for targeted whitening in hard-to-reach places like the gum line. As with the whitening strips, Listerine whitening pen is safe on teeth and enamel and also kills germs that cause bad breath. According to Listerine, using 1-3 quick applications a day, results should be noticeable after 2 weeks but in fact, many customers reported far quicker results.


Our Analysis of Listerine Whitening Pen

listerine whitening pen

This pen is very similar to the Listerine whitening strips reviewed above. Both use the same whitening formula so we suspect that using both products simultaneously would be somewhat redundant (though you could alternate their use). That said, there are some substantial differences. The Listerine whitening pen is much more targeted than strips and is therefore well suited to dealing with specific stains and stain-areas (such as from smoking, coffee, tea, sodas, or certain drugs). Though the pen says it can take up to two weeks to notice any effect, some customers noticed significant improvements in just 3 days of use. On average, with constant use, we would estimate each pen lasts around 1 month (though this is highly dependent on how you use it).

In conclusion, Listerine Whitening Pen gets a solid 4.5/5 as an effective at-home or on-the-go supplementary (or even primary) tooth whitener.

Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse Review

Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse is different from other mouthwashes because, like the title says, it is intended for use before brushing your teeth. This clean-mint flavored Listerine mouthwash fights stains, whitens teeth, and kills germs that cause bad breath.

Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse – Analysis

First off, remember (because everyone seems to forget), this is pre-brush mouthwash, meaning you use it before you brush your teeth. This means that after brushing you can still use your standard mouthwash for additional effect. As far as teeth whitener mouth rinses go, Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse is one of the best and the only pre-brush rinse we know of on the market.

However, if you are serious about whiter teeth, whitener mouth rinses in general are not the heavy hitters here. They can and do work well but it will take considerably longer to notice the same effect compared to, for example, Listerine whitening strips. This does not mean you should immediately forget about a whitener rinse. Rather, we recommend Listerine whitening pre-brush rinse as a complement to more powerful, primary tooth whitening solution(s).

In conclusion, Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse gets a solid 4.5/5 as one of the best tooth whitener mouthwashes. The last half point is subtracted only because mouthwashes in general are best as a supplement to a more comprehensive tooth bleaching strategy and should not be solely relied on for serious whitening. That said, we still fully recommend Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse.
