Take-Home Whitening Trays

How Take-home Whitening Trays Work

Custom whitening trays are made of clear plastic that comfortably adjust when inserted. A small dollop of gel (consisting of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of teeth) is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. 

After they have been used and taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again. After each application, it is suggested to wait at least another day before using again.

These whitening trays can be used several times to obtain the desired results. Our dentist will let you know how many times you need to use them. 

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth, and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.
