How long does professional teeth whitening last?

Professional teeth whitening in Charlotte, NC is one of the many cosmetic dentistry options we offer. It is a patient favorite and much-lauded before vacations, job interviews, weddings, or leading up to the holidays.

We offer two options for whitening your smile:

  • Zoom Teeth Whitening in Charlotte, NC
  • Take-home whitening kits for convenience

Your dentist can talk to you about the option that best fits your needs and goals during your consultation. In some cases, your dentist may even recommend combination therapy for optimal results.

Your consultation also determines whether teeth whitening is a safe option for your oral health.

As far as maintaining your results or the longevity of teeth whitening, much of it depends on you.

We recommend avoiding or reducing tooth-staining foods and drinks like bright sauces, coffee, and tea. If you smoke or use tobacco, we suggest seeking help to quit.

It would be best if you also were brushing and flossing after every meal or at least twice daily to remove tartar before it can stain your teeth. And don’t forget to visit your dentist every six months for preventive dentistry, including teeth cleanings and exams.

Finally, you can use your take-home kit to touch up your teeth when needed periodically.

Considerations beyond your control include aging and medications that may cause tooth staining.

With good habits and touch-ups, your professional teeth whitening can last for several years.
