Teeth Whitening Q & A

How do people get yellow teeth?

A variety of factors lead to your teeth turning yellow. Age, certain medications, and the foods you eat and drink may all be contributors. Surface stains on the enamel of your teeth from drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine, can make your teeth look yellow. Smoking and tobacco are also big culprits.

Eventually, the surface stains can get even more challenging to get rid of, because they soak deeply into the enamel of your tooth to the dentin.

Are you sure teeth whitening isn't dangerous?

Absolutely. Teeth whitening is not harmful if you comply with product directions and guidelines. For reliable, safe results, the team at Hansen Dental Care provides Philips Zoom! whitening treatments. You can choose to have your teeth whitened in just one visit or gradually with a take-home whitening kit.

The Zoom whitening solution is not dangerous to put in your mouth and on your teeth in either instance. You may experience minor, temporary gum and tooth sensitivity as a result of the bleaching agents.

What is Opalescence® teeth whitening? 

Opalescence is a unique teeth whitening gel that fits your budget and lifestyle. Unlike any other type of teeth whitener, Opalescence offers professional results that suit your needs — whether you opt for an in-office visit or a take-home kit.

Containing an active whitening ingredient, like carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, Opalescence gels deeply penetrate enamel to give you the whitest, brightest smile possible.

What separates Opalescence from other teeth whitening programs is your range of options, which can fit virtually any budget or lifestyle:
