Using this whitening flosser for one minute per day helps restore your teeth’s natural whiteness in four weeks and helps you maintain a whiter smile (we’re not quite to the 4-week mark yet but we’re already seeing subtle results…..and we’re heavy tea drinkers). The Whitening Water Flosser removes up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas, improves gum health, helps prevent future tooth decay, and is proven to be safe for teeth and gums.

According to Dr. Chris Strandburg, DDS  “The Whitening Water Flosser is a threefer because it whitens your teeth, it freshens your breath and it makes your gums healthy.”

The Waterpik Whitening Water Flosser boasts a variety of features, including its patented whitening infuser, 10 pressure settings, 90 seconds of water capacity, removable and dishwasher-safe reservoir, in-handle water flow control, a new swivel-handle hose for improved access to hard-to-reach tooth surfaces, four interchangeable tips for standard use, and also works great for those of you with special dental needs, such as implants and braces. Each Waterpik Whitening Water Flosser comes with 30 whitening tablets (a one-month supply).

Waterpik Sidekick Water Flosser, $129.99

There is nothing like the Waterpik Sidekick Water Flosser currently available.
