The longevity of the results can vary among individuals, influenced by several factors including the inherent characteristics of one’s teeth and their lifestyle choices. On average, the effects of a stain removal treatment tend to persist for approximately six months. However, it is important to note that this estimate is subject to variation based on individual circumstances. Factors such as oral hygiene practices, dietary habits, consumption of staining substances, and overall oral health maintenance can affect the duration of the achieved results.

Veneers, crowns, caps… are not designed to be whitened and require special care from your dentist. Our whitening formula works to oxidise stains from natural teeth, however, it may be helpful at keeping your surrounding teeth the same shade as the ones that have had dental work.
Stains and discoloration of various surfaces can often be attributed to a range of lifestyle factors. Common causes include the consumption of substances such as cigarettes, coffees, teas, red wines, blueberries, and spices, which possess staining properties. Additionally, inadequate oral hygiene practices can contribute to the development of stains.
For 48 hours after a professional teeth whitening, it is recommended that you avoid acidic, pigmented foods and beverages and stick to things that will not cause discoloration.
