Many people are under the impression that one round of dental bleaching will whiten their teeth for life. While there are some whitening products that will last for a long time, the fact is that teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. Before you pay for a whitening procedure with high expectations, you need to know the truth about how it works. Here is some information to keep in mind.

How Long Does The Whitening Last?

Teeth Whitening And Dental Bleaching For Restoring Your Beautiful Smile Over-the-counter products like Crest White Strips can produce minimal results for about three to six months, depending on the amount of staining present and how well you take care of your teeth. If you choose to go through our professional teeth whitening, you will see much better color results for six months to a year. Some bleaching procedures last as long as two years, but they all eventually lose their sparkle. You must go through regular maintenance to keep the stains from coming back.

How To Keep Your Teeth White After Bleaching

In order to maintain your white smile, try to avoid drinks that stain teeth. Examples include:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Wine

Dark liquids can easily turn a newly white smile into a yellow one in only a matter of weeks. If you cannot get through a day without a cup of coffee, try brushing your teeth after you drink that in the morning. If it's part of your morning routine, get in a habit of brushing right before you head out the door. This will limit the time that the stains have to settle in.

Maintain preventative dental hygiene, and use your take home whitening trays if you get one with your bleaching session. Some packages include this and some do not. A whitening tray like this will offer a last-minute touchup until you come in for another whitening session.

Is There A Permanent Solution To Whiter Teeth?

If you want to have a white smile for the rest of your life, you may want to consider getting porcelain veneers. Porcelain is non-porous, so it does not hold onto stains like enamel does. It is also incredibly strong, so it can withstand any food you may eat on a regular basis. If you have issues with the placement of your teeth, those can be corrected with veneers as well. It's a great way to get a perfect smile to last a lifetime.
