I think I’m going to save up for teeth whitening, but I don’t want to have to do it if I just have to spend the money over and over again. Is it permanent?

Once your teeth stains are removed with teeth whitening, they are permanently removed. The teeth are completely oxidized so the stains are gone.
Just be aware that doesn’t mean your teeth can’t develop new stains. For instance, you’ve got lovely white teeth since you’re whitening treatment was completed, but every day you drink coffee. As you can imagine, with coffee’s staining properties, your teeth will eventually develop a stained look.
One thing you can do to take care of that problem (besides giving up coffee) is to keep your teeth whitening trays. Then every few years, ask your dentist for a tube of whitening gel as a touch up. That won’t call you very much at all.
