Combien de temps dure le blanchiment des dents?

Are you considering teeth whitening treatment? You may be wondering how long the effects will last. Our dentists at St-Eustache talk to you about the different whitening options and the factors that can compromise the whiteness of your teeth. 

What is Teeth Whitening ?

As teeth naturally age, teeth become more susceptible to food and drink stains. Our tooth enamel naturally attracts particles such as tobacco, tea, wine, coffee and berries.

Today, more and more patients choose to have teeth whitening, whether in the dental office or at home, in order to reverse the effects of stains and aging, but also to give themselves a little confidence boost.

In this article, we tell you about how long the effects of teeth whitening last and what you can do to ensure that your teeth stay white for as long as possible after treatment.

How long will the effects of teeth whitening last?

Depending on the treatment option chosen, the duration of the whitening effects will be different.

In-office teeth whitening

Although in-office teeth whitening has an immediate whitening effect on your smile due to a high concentration whitening gel, it will not whiten your teeth permanently.

This in-office treatment is safe, reliable and non-invasive. Your dentist always examines your oral health to ensure that you are a candidate for teeth whitening. 

After a while, you will need to return to the office for touch-ups or a new treatment, as the effects are not permanent. Indeed, if you continue to consume foods or drinks likely to stain your teeth, the whiteness of the latter will probably begin to fade after a few months. If you avoid consuming them, a simple touch-up may be sufficient after about a year.

Home teeth whitening

You can also decide to opt for a professional teeth whitening treatment to be carried out in the comfort of your own home. 

Most patients notice a difference within 10-14 days of starting to use their teeth whitening kit prepared by their dentist. Full results usually appear at the end of the treatment period and tend to last much longer than store-bought teeth whitening treatments.

Results can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months depending on the treatment, how diligently you reapply the gel, and other factors.

In order for the effects to last, be sure to attend your dental appointments regularly and maintain an excellent oral health routine at home (brushing and flossing daily).

A number of factors can influence the whiteness of your teeth after a teeth whitening treatment. The degree of whiteness varies from person to person depending on:

  • The condition of your teeth
  • The color of your teeth
  • The choice of treatment 

If you want to have your teeth whitened, talk to your dentist. He will be able to guide you on the various possible options. You may also want to check out the opinions of the various teeth whitening treatments online and learn more about the experiences of other patients.
