Bleaching And Whitening
Many people have had their teeth bleached, and probably millions more are thinking about it.

How long does it last?
Lightness should last from one to five years, depending on your personal habits such as smoking and drinking coffee and tea. At this point you may choose to get a touch-up. This procedure may not be as costly because you can probably still use the same mouth guard. The retreatment time also is much shorter than the original treatment time.
