Is Teeth Whitening Safe and Permanent?

Having a brilliant, shining smile is a dental goal for many patients in the Hanford, CA, area, but there are many reasons why teeth may become yellowed or stained. The enamel can be discolored simply by the foods and beverages we consume as well as other factors such as medications and smoking. In general, daily brushing will not completely re-whiten your teeth after they have been stained so finding a way to effectively whiten your teeth is an important task.

While there are plenty of “hacks” out there online giving you false guarantees for whiter teeth without the help of a professional cosmetic dentist, it is very rare that any of those “hacks” actually whiten teeth. Some of them have actually been known to harm the enamel on your teeth. To avoid damaging your teeth and to effectively return the brilliance and shine to them, contact our experienced cosmetic dental team of Dr. Jack Nagrani in Hanford, California.

How Long Will Teeth Whitening Last?

Professional teeth whitening can last up to three years, especially when certain factors are considered and actions are taken to extend the effects of the whitening process. It is important to maintain your regular dental hygiene regimen – brushing at least twice per day, flossing every day, and visiting your dentist for biannual cleanings – and drinking plenty of water to help eliminate any food particles or debris that might have stuck on your teeth or in your gums.

You should also stay away from the foods and beverages which may have discolored your teeth in the first place such as coffee and red wine. While its process will not last forever, your proactive steps can work to prolong the whitening effects so that you do not have to repeat the process as often.
