How long does professional teeth whitening last?

woman getting ready to get teeth whitened in torontoYou've invested in brightening your smile with professional teeth whitening, but how long can you expect your new smile to last? The answer to that question varies greatly from patient to patient since everybody's lifestyle is different. Here's how you can make the most of your teeth whitening in Toronto, ON.

Foods and Beverages That Could Discolour Your Teeth

Your diet dramatically affects the brightness of your smile. Consuming foods and beverages that tend to stain and discolor is going to reduce the effectiveness of your whitening treatment. Some of the main culprits are:

  • Coffee and black tea
  • Dark colas
  • Red wine
  • Soy sauce
  • Curry
  • Marinara sauce

Drinking water when you eat highly acidic foods and limiting your consumption of acidic beverages will help to protect your whitening treatment.

Customized Whitening Trays in Toronto

When you invest in your own customized whitening trays from Toronto Lakeshore Dental, we recommend that you whiten for two weeks initially or until you have achieved your desired results. After your initial whitening,  you will have the benefit of being able to update your smile whenever you like since you can always purchase whitening gel from our office and use your trays at home. This will help you preserve your sparkle and keep your smile bright for many years to come.

 We are finally accepting patients requiring emergency treatment. Please contact our office if you have any questions or if you are experiencing a dental emergency.
