How long does Tooth Whitening last?
Teeth whitening is long lasting. It persists for several years. However, oral hygiene and eating habits can re-stain teeth even after effective whitening.
Once depigmented, teeth stay that way for good. However, it is possible for teeth to re-color due to the tannins found in coffee, tea, wine, or tobacco. It is also possible that the teeth lose their shine with age. In this case, it is useful to carry out a maintenance treatment promptly to prolong the effect of tooth whitening.
