How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Watch this video by Dr. Bruce Fine, an experienced New Jersey implant dentist, as he explains how long you can expect your teeth to stay white after a Zoom treatment.

You might be wondering how long the effects of Zoom teeth whitening will last. Well, it primarily depends on your post-treatment care and habits. We provide custom trays along with teeth whitening gels for you to use approximately once a month. Consistently using these trays can help maintain your teeth’s whiteness. However, it’s essential to understand what occurs during the teeth whitening process and how to care for your teeth immediately afterward. When we whiten your teeth, we remove a protective film that naturally exists on our teeth but doesn’t provide 100% protection, which is why teeth can darken over time.

After the whitening procedure, it takes approximately 24 to 48 hours for this protective film to regenerate. During this time, it’s crucial to safeguard your newly whitened teeth. You can do this by consuming foods and beverages that have no color, such as yogurt, vanilla ice cream, halibut, and other white or colorless items. This helps prevent any staining and maintains the whiteness of your teeth. If you’d like to learn more about how to protect your teeth and keep them looking white and bright, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re here to provide you with further information and assistance. We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve a dazzling smile. Have a great day!
