Customized Whitening Trays Procedure

If you want to whiten your teeth but sitting in the dental chair isn’t really your thing, then try Knoxville Smile’s at-home whitening treatment. At-home teeth whitening treatment is easier and more effective than ever with the use of customized whitening trays. These trays allow you to safely and efficiently whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home at your own pace. 

Did You Know?

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment because of its affordability, ease of treatment, and fast results. Additionally, teeth whitening is the only cosmetic dental treatment that can be performed in the comfort of your own home.

Frequently Asked Questions: 

Is at-home teeth whitening right for me?

At-home teeth whitening may be right for you if you want to whiten your teeth at your own pace without the need for an in-office whitening treatment. In some cases, at-home teeth whitening may also be right for you if you are looking for a way to preserve your whitening results from an in-office whitening treatment. 

Why do I need customized whitening trays?

The whitening agents used for teeth whitening treatments work well on enamel, but they are irritating to the gums and surrounding soft tissues. Customized whitening trays are made by taking a dental impression of your mouth and are therefore fabricated to fit over your teeth perfectly. This keeps the whitener on your teeth where it belongs and minimizes the risk of gum irritation. Customized whitening trays are also much more comfortable to wear. For these reasons, your dentist strongly encourages using customized whitening trays instead of over the counter whitening trays. 

How do I use my whitening trays for at-home whitening?

At-home whitening is super easy with customized trays. Simply fill the trays with whitening gel and place them over your teeth. You will then keep the trays in place for approximately 1-2 hours. This process is repeated over the course of a few days.
