Teeth whitening strips, bleaching gels, or having an in-office teeth-whitening procedure can put you at a higher risk of tooth sensitivity.
Pain in your teeth that’s caused by teeth bleaching is often temporary and will usually subside if you stop using whitening products. Bleaching toothpaste can also cause sensitivity in some people.
-If your teeth bleaching is being done in-office, and you have had tooth sensitivity in the past, please let us know so that we can offer you a desensitizing treatment to help reduce any after-treatment pain. If you are bleaching using an over-the-counter treatment, try waiting for a day or two between treatments or try a different product.
