Custom Whitening Trays



This type of tooth whitening usually requires two visits.  At the first appointment, Dr. Josesph Sarkosh will take impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays.

At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary.  The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening.  It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.

Once made, your trays are yours to keep and they are custom fit only for your teeth.  Whenever you need a touch up you can fill the trays again with whitening solution and in the convenience of your home you can again reuse your existing custom trays.
