Laser teeth whitening, a highly popular cosmetic dental procedure, promises a brighter smile through advanced laser technology. As of 2023, it stands out for its efficacy and rapid results. However, a common question among individuals is: how long do these results last? The longevity of laser teeth whitening results depends on several factors…
Firstly, it’s important to understand the process. Our laser teeth whitening process involves applying a highest concentration peroxide gel legally in the UK to the teeth, which is the activated by our advantage laser technology. This accelerates the whitening process, leading to faster and more pronounced results compared to traditional teeth whitening procedures. Typically, our teeth whitening treatment can lighten teeth by several shades in just one session, getting the instant results you want and need.
The immediate outcome is undoubtedly impressive, but the duration of these results varies. On average, the effects of laser teeth whitening can last anywhere from six months to three years. However, this can hugely vary depending on individual lifestyle choices.
One of the most significant factors affecting the longevity of whitening results is smoking. Tobacco products contain tar and nicotine, which are notorious for causing significant tooth staining. Smokers may notice their teeth whitening results fading more quickly than non-smokers for sure.
Diet can also play a crucial role. Consuming stain-causing foods and beverages like red wine, coffee, tea, and dark-coloured fruits and sauces can accelerate the discolouration process. These substances have intense colour pigments called chromogens that adhere to the tooth enamel, gradually undoing the whitening effect.
Oral hygiene is another factor. Regular brushing and flossing can help maintain the results of laser teeth whitening by preventing the build-up of plaque and stains. We often recommend using whitening toothpaste and mouthwash as part of daily oral care to extend the effects of the treatment.
Periodic touch-up treatments can also help maintain the whiteness achieved through laser treatment. Depending on individual habits and the initial results, we might suggest a touch-up every six months to a year.
