How long does teeth whitening last?
If you have recently whitened your teeth or you are thinking of whitening your teeth to improve the appearance of your smile, you might be wondering about the investment in professional teeth whitening and how long your results will last.
At Oak Family Dental, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening to meet your needs. Both methods of teeth whitening provide great results. How long those results will last depends upon you and your lifestyle habits.
Drinking coffee, using tobacco, and drinking red wine can all stain your teeth more quickly than for people who do not have these habits. Foods, especially colorful ones like curry, berries, and beets, can also stain your teeth over time.
After Professional Teeth Whitening
Once you professionally whiten your teeth, you can touch-up your smile, as needed using your custom whitening trays. If you run out of whitening gel, we have additional gel available in our office. Most patients opt to touch up their teeth every six months to a year, but if you choose to do so more often, right after your dental hygiene appointment is a great time to get the best results.
