How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

How Long does Teeth Whitening Last?Whitening your teeth is one of the easiest and fastest ways to boost the appearance of your smile. At Aesthetic Dental Care, we offer two teeth whitening options: in-office Zoom!® treatments and at-home professional-grade whitening kits. Zoom!® teeth whitening allows you to brighten your teeth up to eight shades lighter in a single office visit, while at-home trays allow you to whiten at your convenience.

While your teeth can be significantly improved with whitening treatments, it is important to note they are still susceptible to staining and discoloration. Various foods and beverages – including berries, coffee, tea, and wine – can darken the shade of your teeth. In addition, patients who smoke tobacco products are more likely to develop discolorations at a faster rate. Depending upon your personal habits, you may begin to see your results fade in as little as a month.

Fortunately, maintaining a vibrant smile can be easy. By limiting these foods and beverages, eliminating tobacco use, and remaining diligent with your brushing and flossing, your whitening results can last up to a year before another treatment or touchup is needed. Regardless of which whitening treatment option you choose at our practice, you will be provided with reusable custom-fitted trays to touch up your teeth when you begin to notice any staining or discoloration. With the proper maintenance, your smile can remain bright and beautiful.
