Depending on the repetitive yellowing, the procedure can be performed again after a certain time. But it is not recommended to do it too often. For this reason, it is recommended to stay away from beverages and substances that will accelerate yellowing, such as tea, coffee, cigarettes, after the bleaching process. If dental care is done well, the results of the whitening process will last for several years.

With the bleaching process, yellowing caused by food and environmental factors until that day is eliminated. After the procedure, you will have healthier-looking, whiter teeth. However, depending on factors such as food, drinks, tartar formation, age, yellowing may occur again over time.
