The length of time your teeth stay white after using in-office teeth whitening or take-home trays depends on your personal oral health habits. While the bleaching solution can mean your teeth are much whiter than they otherwise would be for months, if you drink tea, coffee, wine, or ingest other staining food and beverages, your teeth may stain again over time. Tobacco users will also see the length of time their teeth are white after using teeth whitening products diminish.

The experienced teeth whitening dentists at Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles can brighten your teeth several shades using professional teeth whitening gel. You can also use custom take-home trays to help keep your teeth white. However, you must also continue to brush and floss on a regular basis to get rid of daily staining.

Using this combination of take-home trays after in-office teeth whitening and brushing and flossing, your teeth can remain very white until your next biannual dental checkup. You may then schedule another teeth whitening procedure if you would like.

Professional teeth whitening and custom trays are much more effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening products. The trays fit better and the bleaching gel works much better.
