How Take-home Whitening Trays Work

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

After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again. It is not suggested to use them for at least another day after each application.

These whitening trays can be used several times to obtain the desired results. Our dentist can further advise you on how many times they should be used in your case. Also, you can have them customized to you needs.
