How Long Will My Whitening Last?
How long you can maintain your whitened teeth will depend on several unique and individual factors. However most people find that after successful whitening, teeth rarely return to their once deeply stained state.
- If your discoloration is due to over-consumption of tea, coffee, wine or tobacco products etc. - and you do not change your behavior, then it is likely that the whitening effect will not last as long. Additionally, teeth may require touch-ups from time to time
- In case your teeth are genetically stained or the stains are caused by serious illness, you may need a teeth whitening treatment every few years. Normally, teeth whitening administered or prescribed by your dentist can last from 5 to 7 years.
