How long does teeth whitening last?

Teeth whitening is perhaps one of the fastest and most affordable cosmetic dental treatments available. Many people want a beautiful, blemish-free smile, but they often wonder how long professional teeth whitening lasts.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

The effects of teeth whitening do not last forever. Over time, our teeth eventually collect more stains; it is only natural. 

The longevity of a person's teeth bleaching treatment depends on their oral hygiene habits, diet, lifestyle, and even the thickness of their enamel.  However, most people tend to have results that last for several months or longer. 

Dr. Bruce Matthews uses a high-quality whitening system that is gentle on sensitive teeth, long-lasting, and thoroughly removes tough stains and discoloration. 

Tips for Maintaining a White Smile

  • Limit your consumption of highly-pigmented foods or drinks, like ketchup, tomato sauce, tea, and red wine
  • Rinse your mouth and brush your teeth after consuming any stain-causing foods or drinks
  • Practice excellent oral hygiene, such as brushing twice daily and flossing once daily 
  • Visit your dentist for routine dental cleanings and exams in Wilmington, DE
