How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Teeth whitening is one of those vanities that many people have some minor doubts about. Sure, it is great for a television or a movie actor to undergo the procedure because they will be seen by millions of people – if they are lucky!  Still, this painless and fairly routine dental procedure is somewhat expensive bit it doess have some othre very tangible benefits for the average person.

First and foremost among these benefits is aesthetics. Seriously, lets not kid ourselves. This procedure is primarily about making oneself more attractive – not that there is anything wrong with that. Nevertheless, teeth whitening also allows your dental professional to get a really good look at your teeth and identify any existing or potential problems. it can help alleviate pain in the short run and in the long run, this examination is incredibly good for your overall dental hygiene.

While the benefits and duration of teeth whitening will vary widely according to the person – habits and genetics both – the good news is that in general the effects of a whitening treatment will last for three or more years. The effects are significantly less likely to be exacerbated if you do not drink or eat foods that can stain your teeth and if you abstain from smoking. For instance, red wine, tea and coffee are some the agents known to have the most deleterious of effects.

It is also important to note that proper dental maintenance is needed to prolong the whitening period. In particular, patients need to brush to remove any potential dying agents and also to floss regularly throughout the day. Good oral hygiene always leads to a whiter and more prolonged shade no matter what procedure you choose.
