How Long Do Teeth Whitening Results Last?

This timeframe can often be extended or shortened, however, depending on one’s unique personal habits. For instance, individuals who eat a lot of high-staining foods (such as berries, ketchup, beets, etc.) or frequently drink high-staining beverages (such as coffee, wine, and tea) may begin to notice staining and/or discoloration of their teeth a bit sooner than people who don’t consume these items on a regular basis. Furthermore, the use of tobacco products may cause stains to manifest faster than normal. As a result, it can be extremely beneficial to pay close attention to what you eat and drink – as well as maintain proper oral hygiene – to help lengthen the results of your teeth whitening treatment.

An additional factor that can affect the longevity of your whitening results is regular care and maintenance with at-home whitening techniques. To help with this, our dentists offer customizable take-home trays that can be used to help preserve the specific shade you desire for your teeth from the convenience of your own home.

Ultimately, the length of time teeth whitening results last will vary from person to person, but the best recommendation for extending the outcome of treatment is to be cognizant of the foods and beverages you consume, brush and floss on a daily basis, and follow the specific instructions your dentist provides for at-home care and maintenance.
