Frequently Asked Questions

  • Question: How do I use my Power Swabs® teeth whitening kit?
  • Answer: First you detach a Stain-Out Swab™ from the tube. (Click here for more information on how to open a Power Swabs tube.) Rub this swab on your teeth in a circular motion for two minutes to remove deep stains and rehydrate the enamel. After waiting for 30 seconds, do the same with a White Swab Ultra™ for two minutes to whiten your teeth.
  • Question: Can I use the White Swabs Ultra™ before the Stain-Out Swabs™ have completely dried?
  • Answer: You can still use the White Swabs Ultra™ before the Stain-Out Swabs™ dry. 30 seconds is all you need to wait between applications.
  • Question: What should I avoid doing after using Power Swabs® teeth whitening?
  • Answer: Avoid eating, drinking and/or smoking for 30 minutes after the Power Swabs® gel has been applied in order to see maximum results.
  • Question: How long will this teeth whitening last?
  • Answer: Power Swabs® is formulated to produce a long-lasting whiter, brighter smile. Clinical studies and other teeth whitening reviews have shown that teeth remain whiter than baseline for 6 months or more after the use of one Power Swabs® kit.
