I think you are asking how long will it last. Yes, it requires re- bleaching to keep the teeth white. However, it often depends on your teeth and diet. Teeth naturally darken with age, regular teeth whitening is a good idea.

You don’t need toothpaste or mouthwash to clean your teeth. You need a brush and floss. That’s it! Dry brushing will gently and effectively remove the plaque from your teeth. Do small circles at the gum line with a soft bristle brush. Next there is flossing.  Clean the sides of the teeth with the floss. Be sure to get under the gum with the floss. The paste is for flavor and fluoride. It’s not required.

Is it Safe to Whiten My Teeth While I’m Breastfeeding?

The active ingredient in bleaching gels is hydrogen peroxide or a more stable form called carbamide peroxide. Both forms would not be dangerous to the baby. Another consideration would be gum sensitivity to the bleach with hormonal inflammation to these tissues. It may feel better to wait until you are not nursing. Teeth whitening while breastfeeding is safe.
