Professional Teeth Whitening in Peoria, AZ
In reality, it’s almost inevitable that your teeth will become stained. Over time, all the coffee and tea we drink and all the pizza and pasta we eat can add up. In fact, almost anything you eat and drink adds a little something to your smile. This happens gradually, but eventually, you become aware that your teeth aren’t “pearly whites” anymore.
Professional whitening remains one of the easiest ways to give a boost to your smile and your confidence. Our whitening treatments are stronger and more effective than the products in the toothpaste aisle. Whether you prefer in-office whitening or trays to take home, most patients notice significant improvements after a few sessions.
It’s time to take control of your oral care. Get rid of the stains, and let your smile brighten people’s days. At Modern Dentistry of Peoria, we’ll help you discover which whitening option is best for you.

How is professional teeth whitening performed?
Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.
- In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure to peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
- Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
How do I whiten my teeth at home?
If you’re looking for a teeth whitening remedy without coming to the dentist, there are a few simple things you can try at home like brushing with baking powder, occasionally brushing or rinsing with hydrogen peroxide (cut the peroxide in half so you are using a 1.5% solution and not a 3% solution, which is common for over-the-counter), brushing or rinsing with apple cider vinegar, eating more fruits and vegetables, limiting foods that stain your teeth such as soda, coffee, and wine, limiting your sugar intake and building habits to support daily brushing and flossing.
