Why Choose Teeth Whitening Trays?

When it comes to teeth whitening, numerous options are available, ranging from over-the-counter products to professional treatments. However, at Greene & Wood Family Dentistry, we recommend our whitening trays for several compelling reasons:

  1. 1. Quality Whitening: Our whitening trays provide superior results compared to many over-the-counter products. The custom-fitted trays ensure that the whitening gel makes consistent contact with your teeth, resulting in even and thorough whitening.
  2. 2. Cost-Effectiveness: While professional whitening treatments can be pricey, our whitening trays offer an affordable alternative without compromising quality. You’ll achieve professional-level results at a fraction of the cost.
  3. 3. Convenience: With our at-home whitening trays, you can whiten your teeth on your own schedule, whether during your morning routine or while relaxing at home in the evening. There is no need to schedule multiple appointments at the dentist – wear the trays as directed and watch your smile transform.

How Do Whitening Trays Work?

Whitening with trays, also known as bleaching, is a safe and effective way to brighten your smile. Here’s how it works:

  1. 1. Custom-Fitted Trays: During your initial visit to Greene & Wood Family Dentistry, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to create custom-fitted whitening trays. The trays are designed to fit perfectly over your teeth, ensuring maximum contact with the whitening gel.
  2. 2. Whitening Gel: We’ll provide you with professional-grade whitening gel containing a safe concentration of hydrogen peroxide. This gel is applied to the trays before inserting them into your mouth.
  3. 3. Treatment Duration: The duration of your whitening treatment depends on the severity of discoloration and your desired level of whitening. Typically, you’ll wear the trays for a specified amount of time each day, with most patients achieving noticeable results within 10 to 14 days.
  4. 4. Stain Removal: The peroxide in the whitening gel breaks down into hydroxyradicals, which penetrate the enamel and target stubborn stains. Unlike whitening strips, which may only cover certain teeth, our custom trays ensure that all your natural teeth receive comprehensive whitening.
  5. 5. Comfort: Our whitening gel is formulated with ingredients intended to minimize sensitivity, providing a comfortable experience throughout the treatment process.


  1. Q. Are teeth whitening trays safe?

Yes, teeth whitening trays provided by Greene & Wood Family Dentistry are safe when used as directed. Our professional-grade whitening gel contains a safe concentration of hydrogen peroxide and is formulated to minimize sensitivity. We’ll provide detailed instructions on how to use the trays safely and effectively.

  1. Q. How long does it take to see results with teeth whitening trays?

Most patients begin to see noticeable results within 10 to 14 days of consistently using whitening trays. However, individual results may vary depending on factors such as the severity of discoloration and the frequency of use. Some patients may notice improvement in as little as 3 to 5 days.

  1. Q. How often should I use teeth whitening trays?

We recommend using teeth whitening trays once daily for 30 minutes to an hour. It’s critical to follow the instructions provided by your dentist to achieve optimal results without causing sensitivity or irritation.

  1. Q. Can teeth whitening trays whiten crowns or fillings?

Teeth whitening trays are designed to whiten natural teeth and may not be effective on crowns, veneers, or fillings. If you have restorations in your mouth, we can discuss alternative whitening options or recommend additional treatments to match the shade of your natural teeth.

  1. Q. How long do the results of teeth whitening trays last?

The longevity of teeth whitening results depends on various factors, including oral hygiene habits and dietary choices. Avoiding staining foods and beverages, such as coffee and red wine, can help prolong the results of your whitening treatment. Additionally, periodic touch-ups may be necessary to maintain your desired level of whiteness.

  1. Q. Can I use teeth whitening trays if I have gum disease or dental issues?

It’s important to consult with your dentist before using teeth whitening trays if you have underlying dental issues, like gum disease or tooth decay. We’ll evaluate your oral health and recommend appropriate treatments or adjustments to ensure the safety and effectiveness of whitening treatment.
