How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments out there. It is safe, effective and provides an instant way to lighten your smile! But if you want the best value from your teeth whitening treatment, you might have asked yourself the question: “How long does teeth whitening last?” The answer depends on the individual circumstances, but on average, teeth whitening can last up to 2-3 years or as little as 6 months. Manor House Dental recommends scheduling an appointment with us so that we can provide you with advice on teeth whitening treatment and answer any queries you may have to help you on your journey to a brighter smile.


The Two Types Of Tooth Stains

The type of tooth discolouration or stain you have matters.
There are two types of tooth stains:
● Intrinsic (internal): Developed due to ageing, trauma, infection, and medication, these deep, internal stains are tougher to erase but can be managed through the right kind of treatment.

● Extrinsic (external): These are often the result of food, cigarette smoke, and drink. Many stain removers only target extrinsic stains.

Tooth whitening lasts as long as the type of whitener you use and your lifestyle habits. If you maintain your oral health habits and keep your teeth clean, you will be able to get longer-lasting results from at-home whitening products and/or dental procedures.

Does Teeth Whitening Remove Stains?

Using professional teeth whitening can remove surface stains, (also known as extrinsic discolouration). It is extremely effective in removing intrinsic discoloration as well by other factors. To receive safe and effective teeth whitening treatment, it is always best to see your dentist.

Tips for Maintaining Your Teeth After Teeth Whitening

The whiteness of your teeth will fade over time, and it’s important to maintain the appearance of your teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing. We recommend you contact us for professional teeth cleaning every six months.

To keep your teeth white, here are a few simple tips:

● Brush your teeth at least twice a day (morning and evening)
● Eat healthily – avoid sugary foods
● Speak to your dentist regularly
● Get your teeth checked every 6 months
● Reduce or quit smoking
● Reduce the amount of coffee, tea, red wine, soft drinks, red fruits, and spices as these can stain your teeth
