Getting a brighter, whiter smile at home has never been easier. One popular method for whitening at home is teeth bleaching trays. Otherwise known as teeth whitening trays since they don't actually use bleach, these products can whiten teeth in just a few days. While you can also get customized options from your dentist or results in a little as one visit, you can usually find teeth bleaching trays at your local drugstore or mass retailer.
Teeth Bleaching Trays: How Do They Work?
Most over-the-counter teeth bleaching tray systems come with a week’s worth of trays. Each of the teeth bleaching trays is pre-filled with the appropriate amount of a peroxide-based whitening gel that is similar to what is used in popular whitening strips and other over-the-counter whitening products. Most systems will include a full set of disposable trays; you use two trays per day, one for your bottom teeth and one for your top teeth.
What Are Teeth Bleaching Trays Made Of?
Over-the-counter teeth bleaching trays are typically made of a flexible material that molds to your teeth. It may not fit perfectly since the mold wasn’t made specifically for your teeth, but it should do the trick and whiten your smile in just a few days.
While teeth bleaching trays have become very popular, it’s important to note that they typically require a longer application time than most whitening strips and often cannot be worn while you talk on the phone or go about your day. However, Crest 3D White Whitestrips Advanced Vivid uses the innovative Advanced Seal technology that provides advanced adhesion to fit every person’s unique smile . . . and comes off clean leaving no mess behind. You can even drink water while you whiten with Advanced Vivid! No matter what product you choose for whitening, you will appreciate the benefits of having a brighter, whiter smile.
