How long does teeth whitening last?
The length of time that professional teeth whitening treatments last varies greatly from person to person depending on their oral care routine. The effects of professional teeth whitening can last as little as one month or as much as a year for some people.
First, every patient will see different results from professional teeth whitening treatments. The results depend greatly on your general oral health, the degree of staining, and the type of whitening treatment used.
The effects of teeth whitening treatment can be affected by your oral hygiene routine and lifestyle habits. If you consume a lot of staining foods and beverages, you need to be very proactive about brushing as soon as possible. Coffee, tea, red wine and some dark berries can cause your teeth to stain very quickly if you don’t brush or, at the very least, rinse your mouth with water after consuming.
Smoking and chewing tobacco are not only a huge risk to your general health, but these habits can cause your teeth to become severely stained very quickly. If you spend the time and money to have your teeth whitened professionally, you should really consider protecting your investment – and your health – by quitting.
