How long will the results last?
Typically the results will last 6-12 months. Factors such as diet, age, genetics, some medications (e.g tetracycline), and certain lifestyle habits (e.g smoking) may affect the length of your whitening. However, some clients experience “whitening relapse” within the first 2-5 weeks following the procedure; we offer a 15 min touch up session to fix this problem!!
