How Long do Teeth Whitening Results Last?

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


Professional teeth whitening can provide you with a long-lasting and noticeably brighter smile. How long your rejuvenated smile will last varies by patient and depends largely on your personal care.

Your Hoboken dentist at Frank R. DePaola DDS & Associates will discuss your expectations with you prior to your teeth whitening treatment. Some patients achieve dazzling smiles with a single treatment; others may need one or two follow-up sessions to see the results they desire.

The duration of your teeth whitening results will depend on a number of factors, including the extent of teeth discoloration, the state of your teeth enamel and your oral health habits. With a healthy diet, a proper dental hygiene routine at home, and regular checkups and teeth cleanings with your dentist, you may maintain your teeth whitening results indefinitely.

Patients with deep stains, such as those caused by dental trauma or exposure to medications containing tetracycline, may benefit from another treatment, such as porcelain veneers.
