How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?

If you have discolored teeth, Dr. Charles Anonye may recommend teeth whitening in York, Pennsylvania. The effects of teeth whitening are not permanent. If a patient exposes their teeth to staining foods and beverages, they may see the brightness of their smile begin to fade after as little as one month. However, for patients who avoid staining foods and beverages, the whiteness of their smile can last for up to a year. At that point, the patient may wish to have another whitening treatment or a touch-up treatment performed.
