What is custom tray whitening?

Custom tray whitening is a process that involves using a personalized fit tray that fits the patient’s teeth perfectly. The dentist takes an impression of the patient’s teeth which created a mould. The mould is then used to create the tray which is then filled with a whitening gel. These moulds are worn by the patient for a specific period. The patients are prescribed for wearing the custom tray for 2 weeks. This is a great way to remove stains and whiten teeth and can be a more affordable option compared to operative options. 

Why is it called custom tray whitening?

Custom tray whitening stands for the fact that the whitening tray that is used in the procedure is custom-made to fit the specific shape and size of the patient’s teeth. Custom-fit ensures that the whitening gel is distributed evenly coming into contact with all of the teeth, providing consistent results. The trays are supposed to be worn for about 30 minutes but we recommend following the dentist’s instructions.

Do custom whitening trays work?

Compared to over-the-counter whitening products, custom whitening trays can be effective for whitening teeth. The custom fit of the tray helps ensure that the whitening gel provides more consistent and efficient results. Custom whitening trays also contain a higher concentration of whitening gel than over-the-counter products which may lead to faster and more dramatic results. Custom whitening trays are only effective for surface stains on the teeth and may not be effective for all types of tooth discolouration.

How much do custom whitening trays cost?

The cost of a custom whitening tray ranges from $300 to $800 or more, with the average cost being around $500. You can contact your insurance provider. Some dental insurance plans may cover part or all of the cost of custom whitening trays, but this will depend on the individual policy. It’s always best to discuss the cost and financing options with your dentist before starting any whitening treatment.
