Teeth Whitening Longevity

Indulgences like soda, wine, coffee, and other foods and beverages can satisfy the belly but wreak havoc on the teeth. Over time, a naturally white and vibrant smile can dull, turning off-white or yellow. We may not smile like we used to. We may feel self-conscious about how we look, especially in photographs. Smiling is how we express ourselves and radiate joy. You can get a radiant smile back with in-house dental whitening procedures. Yet, how long does teeth whitening last?

At Babylon Dental Care, we want to answer your tooth-whitening longevity questions and lead you toward a whiter, brighter smile.

Teeth Whitening Procedures

Food, beverages, lifestyle choices, and time can turn your teeth from bright white to dull and stained. Discolored teeth can prevent people from smiling and showing their true colors. Although there are several products on the market, from tooth whitening toothpaste to sticky dental strips, these products can only make a marginal difference in the appearance of your smile. For a brighter and more radiant smile and dramatic color difference, in-house dental whitening procedures may offer the results you are looking for.

Teeth whitening is a process that aims to make teeth appear whiter, changing the natural color of the teeth from yellow and dull to a more vibrant shade of white. The whitening process that offers the best color results depends on the state of the individual’s natural teeth. Those with slight discoloration or surface staining may benefit from non-bleaching whitening services. However, those with darker stains, age spots, or yellowing teeth typically need to have their teeth bleached with peroxide-containing products.

An in-office dental whitening treatment often involves a specific bleaching product designed to remove stains from teeth. A unique lamp uses light to penetrate the teeth and help the product remove stains and discoloration. Professional cosmetic dental whitening treatments can whiten teeth up to eight shades lighter.

Other patients may benefit from whitening treatments that they can take with them and use in the privacy of their own homes. Don’t know how to use teeth whitening strips? These dental whitening kits typically include customized upper and lower dental trays that fit the unique contours of a patient’s mouth and enough whitening gel to whiten teeth four to six shades whiter. At Babylon Dental Care, we also include a touch-up whitening gel in our customized kits so patients can touch up their smile between regular dental visits.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Teeth Whitening Longevity

Don’t know how long does teeth whitening last? The results of the whitening process can last from one to three years, depending on the situation. Patients who maintain good oral hygiene and avoid foods and beverages that can stain their teeth get the most bang from tooth whitening procedures. A radiant, white smile can fade significantly more quickly because of:

  • Specific foods and drinks
  • Age
  • Genetic factors
  • Smoking or vaping
  • Poor oral hygiene practices
  • Avoiding regular dental cleanings
  • Tooth trauma or infection

Some people prefer to extend the longevity of their professional teeth whitening treatment by using at-home products in between dental visits. In some people, bleaching the teeth can cause some tooth sensitivity and pain. How long does teeth sensitivity last after whitening? It depends on your tolerance as well as the health of your teeth and gums. Talk to your dentist about the best way to extend the life of your professional dental whitening treatment. Also, check your teeth whitening products if they have harmful ingredients and chemicals.

At Babylon Dental Care, we are excited to provide patients with an innovative Whitening for Life program option. After your initial treatment, we provide additional whitening gel at every six-month cleaning appointment to keep your smile white and gleaming for the rest of your life. It is one of the most economical ways to extend the duration of your whitening treatment and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. It also means you can rely on a steady supply of dental-grade whitening products without investing in over-the-counter whitening strips or kits that can deliver unpredictable results.

Angela P


“Absolutely incredible team. From the very moment you walk in you're greeted with kindness and people who want to help you. When I was asked how everything was I literally told them I was speechless. Having had terrible experiences as a kid with dentistry I wasn't sure if the nice things I've heard and read would live up to my expectation. I'm so glad they met them, and even went above and beyond what I had imagined. They offered me several options (a comfort menu) for things I could ask for to help make the time go by easier and with less anxiety.. all for free! If you have been holding off due to how long it's been and how anxious you might be then take this as your sign to look into coming here. I really truly am so glad I overcame my fear and made my appointment, they are just *that* good”
