Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?
Whitening will not keep your teeth white forever and the effects can last from a few months to a few years after the treatment. Drinking coffee or tea, smoking, and eating foods such as berries or other foodstuffs that contain staining tannins will darken your teeth.
While brushing immediately after eating these foods will help prolong the effects, many people choose to reapply whiteners every few months or so to keep their pearly whites as shiny as possible.
Will the Solutions Whiten Veneers, Crowns, and Fillings?
Veneers, crowns, and fillings can’t be whitened by a whitening solution. Whether they are amalgam, ceramic, or zirconia, the materials that are used to manufacture them are, as the saying goes, set in stone.
However, veneers, crowns and fillings can be replaced to match your new, bright smile. The doctors and staff at All Smiles can discuss this with you and help you determine whether that is the best option for your smile and the health of your teeth.
