ACE Dental Product Review
The Chic Flic Teeth Whitening and Lip Gloss Plumper Pen is a product developed by Whiter Image Dental that is designed to be an on-the-go teeth whitener and lip plumper tool in one.
The product is effective at providing safe teeth whitening treatments and offers an alternative to more expensive in-office whitening or take-home whitening kits.
Teeth Whitening with Chic Flic
The Chic Flic pen utilizes a mint flavored carbamide peroxide whitening gel that helps to whiten teeth effectively and safely.
Carbamide peroxide is considered a bleaching agent by the FDA and is often used for cosmetic as well as pharmaceutical applications.
In the teeth whitening application in which the product is intended, it works to oxidize extrinsic staining within tooth enamel. This bleaching agent is also used in take-home whitening kits that utilize mouth guards that are worn at night.
The benefit of the Chic Flic pen is its ease of use and ability to allow users to quickly whiten teeth without visiting the dentist or purchasing over-the-counter products.
The Chic Flic pen does not offer the same results as an in-office whitening treatment such as Zoom Whitening but does offer individuals a cost-effective product that can be used anytime.
Lip Gloss with Chic Flic
The Chic Flic pen also contains a lip-gloss plumper on the opposite side of the tooth whitening pen. This lip gloss plumper, designed for women, offers short and long term volume enhancement and moisturized lips.
The lip gloss plumper pen has been tested in clinical settings and is safe for everyday or long-term use.
It contains ingredients that are designed to make the lips appear softer and plumper, offering cost-effective alternatives to collagen, Restylane, Juvederm, and/or fat injections.
Importance of Moisturizing Lips
Lips lack oil glands, sweat glands and pigment, unlike the rest of the body. They require different care and can become chapped, dry, and cracked especially in harsh weather conditions such as cold air, heavy sun or wind exposure.
Applying a moisturizer like the lip gloss pen helps to prevent dry, cracked lips and helps to keep them soft and subtle. Although the Chic Flic pen is intended to help improve aesthetics, its ability to help moisturize lips can prevent lips from appearing aged and hydrated.
Why our Teeth Discolor
Because our teeth are protected by the porous layer enamel, stains can become trapped in our teeth and result in a dull appearance.
By helping the teeth combat these stains, we are able to make our teeth look brighter and more youthful. Natural effects of aging, diet, wear and tear and even medicines can discolor our teeth as can nicotine.
Using a teeth whitening product such as the Chic Flic pen works to improve the appearance of the teeth while breaking up stains.
