You should repeat the whitening when you feel YOU want your teeth whiter.  Most people notice that after 2-3 years, their teeth appear darker and they would then repeat the whitening process.  However, if you want to keep the colour you achieved at the initial whitening you should expect to do a top-up every six months. One to two days top up should be sufficient to get you back to your original shade.  If you are a smoker or consume a fair amount of red wine, tea, coffee and other substances, with a tendency to heavy staining it might take a little bit longer.

The necessity for repeat whitening varies from one patient to the next.  One of the dentists I know who lightened his teeth 10 years ago before it was in fashion, has not needed to do it again, his teeth still being a good colour.  Others, with more porous teeth, may have to lighten more often.
