By the year 2024, the global teeth whitening product market will be valued at 7.4 billion dollars according to a report from Hexa Research. That’s a lot of people who want that perfect white smile. Tons of teeth whitening treatments are available and today we’ll be breaking down two of the most popular options. Custom teeth whitening trays and teeth whitening light. Which is better and how does each treatment work? We’ll break it down in our blog below.
Custom Whitening Trays
Sporting Smiles is known for its superior teeth whitening treatments. Using our patented impression kit, customers will take their impressions and send them back to our dental lab. With the impressions, the dental lab will begin the process of crafting the custom teeth whitening trays.
With the impressions scanned in digitally, Sporting Smiles uses the latest technology including a 3D printer to bring the highest-quality trays to our customers. These trays are a perfect fit for your teeth as they completely cover your teeth from the gumline to your tips. The trays will almost “snap” into place. Custom Teeth Whitening Trays are a great option when whitening your smile. Paired with teeth whitening gel, you can expect full results within 10 days.
The teeth whitening gel that Sporting Smiles offers will begin to foam when activated by the touch of your teeth. Foaming will encase your teeth with the whitening treatment reaching the cracks and crevices of all teeth covered by the trays.
Cost of Whitening Trays
Custom teeth whitening trays are much less expensive and carry all the same benefits of a teeth whitening light, if not more. Sporting Smiles offers custom teeth whitening trays for $70.
Benefits of Whitening Trays
Custom teeth whitening trays offer a few different benefits that you won’t receive with blue light teeth whitening treatments. The biggest benefit is that the foaming gel will whiten places that the teeth whitening light can’t reach. When the whitening gel is activated by your saliva, it will begin to foam in and around your teeth. With the teeth whitening trays holding the gel in place, it will foam into the cracks and crevices of your teeth. Any hard-to-reach spots will be whitened using the trays.
It’s easy to get into a routine using teeth whitening custom trays. They are easy to snap on and can be used during your morning routines. Customers are happy to know that you can use the whitening trays in the shower making it an even more convenient treatment. If you spend 5-15 minutes a day for 10 days wearing your custom whitening trays, you’ll see impressive results. The whitening gels are easy to reorder and the trays will last for years with proper casing. Custom trays are perfectly fitted to your teeth allowing you to still communicate if need be.
Teeth Whitening Light
Another form of teeth whitening is whitening your teeth with a blue light. The gel applied is typically stronger and is activated by blue light in your mouth. You’ll brush the teeth whitening gel onto your teeth and stick a large mouthpiece into your mouth. This mouthpiece is typically plugged into your phone with a cord to power it. A teeth whitening light is powerful and can show results within a week due to the stronger gel it uses.
You won’t be able to speak with the mouthpiece and you’ll have to continually clamp your teeth down on the guard to keep it in place. The teeth whitening blue light has become a popular source of treatments, but many of the top producers of the product warn customers right on their website to watch out for dangerous counterfeits. You can damage your mouth, gums, and teeth with improper use of the blue light.
Cost of Teeth Whitening Light
Teeth Whitening Blue Lights typically cost from $120-$200 depending on what brand you get. You may find one for cheaper than the predicted price but as stated on many websites, there are knockoffs and dangerous counterfeits.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening Light
You’ll see results quicker with the teeth whitening light treatments as they typically start to work within a week.
Custom Teeth Whitening Trays vs Teeth Whitening Light Treatments:
Millions have turned to teeth whitening treatments. It’s an important decision that impacts both your wallet and your smile. Custom Teeth Whitening Trays are more affordable and last longer than teeth whitening light treatments. Teeth whitening light treatments can be costly and prone to breaking. You know how your cell phone charger cord starts to break after use? The same can happen with teeth whitening light cords especially the ones that connect to your cell phone. There’s plenty of wear and tear and the mouthpiece itself can break if dropped. Teeth whitening lights may provide quicker results, but the results will disappear just as quickly as they appeared. Custom Teeth Whitening trays are more affordable, durable, and last longer. It’s an easy decision when selecting between the two options.
