Questions about the results
How white can my teeth get?
This depends on the thickness of the dentine in combination with the thickness of the enamel, which is different for everyone. With a home-bleaching method from the dentist, you will achieve around 30 to 40 per cent of the maximum result. With plasma lamp bleaching, this is usually around 70 per cent. Because we give your teeth a preliminary treatment at The White Smile Company®, in one treatment we will achieve between 90 and 95 per cent of this maximum achievable result. Your natural teeth cannot get whiter after this. Prior to every treatment, we indicate as accurate as possible what your result will be after the treatment. You can then decide whether you consider the result to be white enough to undergo the treatment.
How long will your teeth stay white after the treatment?
On average, the result of our whitening treatments will be preserved for one to two years. This depends on your consumption habits and maintenance regime. After this period, the results will gradually decrease.
Are there any other methods available to make your teeth whiter?

Will your teeth discolour more quickly after the treatment than prior to the treatment?
During the treatment, all the preceding years’ discolouration of your teeth will be removed. The structure of the teeth will not altered be in any way. This means that your teeth will not absorb discolouration more quickly than prior to the treatment.
Can you repeat the whitening treatment after a certain period?
Because a treatment at The White Smile Company® is not harmful and changes nothing permanently to the structure of your teeth, you may repeat the treatment as often as you wish. In theory, you could do this with ease several times per year. However, it is only necessary if your teeth are affected by new discolouration. If you wish to preserve optimal result, we advise you to repeat the treatment once every one to two years, depending on your consumption habits and maintenance regime.
