How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

18 Apr 2024

If you decide to have your teeth whitened at the dentist, you will want to know how long it will last. To know the answer to that question is the same as trying to answer “How long is a piece of string?”

Teeth whitening is not a permanent process and how long the treatment lasts will vary from person to person and will depend on the health and condition of your teeth to begin with, and the substances you inflict upon your teeth after treatment that can cause staining. For example, if you smoke, or drink red wine, tea or coffee, your teeth whitening treatment won’t last as long as somebody who doesn’t consume these substances, because they all lead to staining of the teeth.

Certain drugs, medication and other environmental factors can also add to discolouration of your teeth, so depending on your health and lifestyle, teeth whitening can last anywhere from a few months up to about 3 years. However, when you book a treatment at Sydney Road Dental Care, we aim to provide you with a uniquely tailored solution to best suit your needs and to ensure your teeth whitening treatment at the dentist will last as long as possible.
