Choosing Professional Teeth Whitening
We recommend using professional in-office teeth whitening over anything you can buy over the counter for a variety of reasons. Our in-office whitening services are done alongside a take-home custom made whitening tray that you can use in the convenience of your home, during your own time. You can keep track of your whitening progress and determine the pace you would like to set.
Your at-home whitening tray is designed just for you by using impressions of your smile so that it will fit perfectly in your mouth with no chance of leaking. Many of our Phoenix patients benefit from teeth whitening treatments, because:
Our treatments take less than an hour, so you don't have to commit a lot of time.
Your take-home whitening tray is fitted correctly for your smile.
You don't have to wait to eat or drink after the procedure; there's no recovery time.
It's at Your Pace
You get to choose the shade and pace with which you want to whiten your teeth.
With proper care and maintenance, your teeth whitening can last up to a year.
Reasons for Teeth Staining
Many of our patients are surprised at the common reasons teeth become stained. In particular, dark foods and drinks are highly likely to make your teeth yellow, including:
- Tomato sauce
- Soy sauce
- Carbonated sugary soft drinks
Smoking and tobacco are also common culprits to yellowing or stained teeth. Also, not brushing and flossing daily can make your teeth appear dull. In general, aging itself can be a big reason our pearly-whites aren't so white. The enamel in our teeth has tiny pores that food debris can get caught in, which makes our teeth look discolored. We can erase years off your teeth (and appearance!) in just one dental visit.
You will walk away from Dental Care at Moon Valley looking younger and more vibrant.
How to Maintain Your White Smile
Getting your teeth whitened can be exciting, you'll find yourself smiling at every chance you get!
Now that your teeth are bright and stunning, you might be eager to maintain your new look. While teeth whitening is not permanent, with proper care, you can expect to keep them looking fresh for up to a year.
The easiest way to keep your teeth from losing their luster is through routine brushing and flossing. Investing in an electric toothbrush is a fun way to ensure that you brush your teeth for two minutes each time. We recommend buying a fluoride toothpaste to keep your teeth and gums as clean as possible. Flossing helps remove any food particles and debris before they become plaque.
We recommend avoiding foods and beverages that stained your teeth in the first place. Using a straw while drinking dark drinks can help the drink bypass your front teeth.
If you smoke, now is a great time to quit. Not only does smoking make your teeth yellow, but it can also cause oral cancer.
Rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash is an excellent way to make sure food particles and bacteria are washed from your mouth. Doing this is excellent for your oral health, and keeps your breath fresh!
You can always get teeth whitening touch-ups at Dental Care at Moon Valley. Together we can keep your pearly-whites as dazzling as possible.
Why You Should Avoid Store-Bought Brands
Many of our Phoenix patients have seen the rows upon rows of whitening products that promise miracles. The truth is, very few of them will ever be effective simply due to safety issues. To see real results, you need a powerful bleaching agent that only professionals can handle or have access to. Professional teeth whitening is safe, and the only effective way to whiten your teeth without damaging your enamel.
When patients use over-the-counter teeth whitening products, they may damage their enamel—leading to tooth sensitivity. Bleaching trays are sold as a one-size-fits-all kit, which can lead to bleaching gel seeping out and harming gums and soft tissue. Some products can contain abrasive elements that damage your enamel, ironically leading to further staining!
The teeth whitening agents that Dr. Hines utilizes are professional grade, so your results are immediate and instantly pleasing. Furthermore, they are designed to reduce and sometimes eliminate sensitivity, which store-bought brands can never claim. Dr. Hines can also customize the strength of your bleaching gel, so you can control the look you want without can also customize the strength of the whitening gel for your treatment. You can achieve the brilliant results that you desire even if you have sensitive teeth!
Talk about your teeth whitening goals with Dr. Hines at your next dental appointment; he can suggest the best whitening options for your lifestyle and budget. Professional teeth whitening at Dental Care at Moon Valley is the only full-proof method of safely enhancing your smile.
Any cosmetic dental procedure you get should look beautiful and natural. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on balance and symmetry; no one wants a treatment that seems artificial and obvious. You've probably seen photos where the teeth are simply too bright to be lifelike.
The goal at our Phoenix dental office is to give you a fresh and polished look with being too bright. We use a handheld shade guide to match your current shade and identify the shade you would like to be at.

Professional teeth whitening is a remarkable treatment when you consider how affordable, and accessible the process is and the transformational results we can achieve in a short amount of time. With an in-office procedure, you’ll see results in under an hour. Using our customized take-home kits is also very effective, and you should see a noticeable improvement in about two weeks of daily use.
Before whitening, Dr. Hines will always recommend a professional dental cleaning to achieve the best possible results. If there is plaque or tartar on your teeth, the whitening results will be uneven. If it’s time for your next cleaning or you’d like to learn more about our teeth whitening options, please give us a call.
