How long does teeth whitening last?

Having your teeth whitened can give you added confidence when it comes to your smile. Everyone loves a bright, white smile!

If you have invested the time and effort it takes to achieve a whiter smile, you are probably wondering how long it will last. 

Your white smile depends on your commitment to keep it that way! If you avoid a few things in your day-to-day life, you can maintain your white smile longer! These include:

  • Tobacco 
  • Coffee
  • Red wine
  • Tea
  • Soda

If you have whitened your teeth and start to notice that they are not as bright as they used to be, we can provide whitening gel refills to touch up your smile. In a few days to a couple of weeks of touching up your teeth with your home teeth whitening kit, you can see dramatic improvements.

Remember that the best time to whiten your teeth is right after a dental cleaning. By removing surface stains during a cleaning, your whitening gel can do a better job by coming into contact directly with your clean teeth. A dental cleaning may even polish light stains away.

Even if you have whitened your teeth in the past, you can achieve that brightness once again. Give us a call!
