When you choose a professional teeth whitening treatment, you want your results to last for a while. Fortunately, teeth whitening can last quite a long time – from months to even as long as years. A lot of it depends on what kind of whitening treatment you use and how you care for your teeth afterward.
After your whitening treatment is complete, we’ll discuss ways to increase the amount of time that your teeth stay bright and white. It’s helpful to be aware of the staining foods and drinks that we consume and keep them to a limit. This includes coffee, tea, cola, red wine, and dark fruit juices along with foods like curry and chocolate. When you choose to enjoy these, rinse well afterward and brush your teeth as soon as you can. Smoking, of course, will stain your teeth quickly, and we strongly discourage it – for many reasons!
Your Routine Is Important
Keeping up with a good home-care routine will help keep your teeth beautiful, and your dental hygienist will be happy to provide tips for the best technique and products.
We are also happy to discuss maintenance, which can help you keep your results for a lifetime.
