The first 24 - 48 hours following your teeth whitening treatment are critical. Your teeth are still porous from the teeth whitening leaving them temporarily susceptible to staining. Up to 48 hours, avoid any foods and drinks that will stain. Here are a few tips to follow to keep your teeth gleaming!
How long the results last are shown to be up to 3 years! But this depends on your habits. If you expose your teeth to staining agents such as tobacco, colas, tea, red wine, coffee, etc. on a regular basis, your whitening results will not last as long. Once you have achieved the level of white you desire, it is up to you to maintain your bright, white smile. It takes just as long to stain your teeth again as it did in the first place.
