What are the advantages of dental implants?

How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?

The duration of your results will depend on your diet and habits. If you expose your teeth to staining foods and beverages, the brightness of your smile may begin to fade in as little as one month. If you avoid foods and drinks that can stain the teeth, you may be able to wait for a year or longer before you need another whitening treatment or touch-up treatment.
