How Effective Are Whitening Trays?

Want a whiter, brighter smile? There are many options available to combat teeth staining and discoloration, including whitening trays. For the best and safest results, visit your trusted team at Gregory P. Bialek, DDS, PA Cosmetic and General Dentistry for custom-fitted trays and professional-grade bleaching gel that will leave you with a dazzling smile!

Over-the-counter Whitening Trays

Over-the-counter whitening products, including whitening trays, are available for use at home. However, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry recommends using custom-fitted mouth trays made by a dentist for the safest and most effective results. Over-the-counter trays rarely deliver the desired results and can cause more harm than good. They are ill-fitting, often resulting in the bleaching gel leaking and irritating the gums. With trays made to precisely fit your mouth and bite, you can expect safe and dramatic whitening results!

Professional Teeth Whitening Trays

Professional tray bleaching utilizes custom-made trays and peroxide-based whitening gel only available through your dentist. As the peroxide breaks down, hydroxyl free radicals help lift stains and whiten and brighten your teeth. Unlike whitening strips that target one or more of your teeth, this process simultaneously whitens all your natural teeth. Moreover, the professional-grade whitening products we provide contain ingredients designed to provide maximum comfort. At-home professional whitening typically requires 10-14 days to achieve the desired results, with some patients reporting whiter and brighter teeth in as little as three to five days.

In-Office Whitening

For quick, dazzling, and long-lasting results, you may want to consider in-office professional whitening. Dr. Bialek is proud to offer powerful whitening options with concentrations of bleaching gel only available at a dentist’s office. Our traditional office whitening and Zoom Whitening Systems will safely lift the most stubborn stains, whitening your teeth several shades in one short visit to our office. Following treatment, we may provide you with custom-fitted whitening trays for at-home use to maintain your stunning results. Talk to one of our team members about the benefits of in-office whitening.

Maintaining Your White, Bright Smile

Maintaining your beautiful, white smile requires a meticulous oral hygiene regimen, including daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing. Don’t forget to schedule your periodic dental cleanings twice a year to remove any surface stains. Limiting products such as berries, coffee, wine, soda, and tobacco will help prevent new staining and discoloration.
