What Is It?
Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. Most dentists perform tooth whitening. Whitening is not a one-time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.
Treating Sensitive Teeth After TEETH WHITENING
Sometimes after whitening treatments, teeth can be sensitive. If this occurs you have options to reduce the pain.
Use a sensitivity toothpaste – sensitive toothpastes are formulated with ingredients such as potassium nitrate to relieve the pain associated with tooth sensitivity
Chew gum – scientists have found that more saliva is produced when chewing gum. And the act of chewing may distract people from the pain.
Avoid whitening for a while – give your teeth a break and stop using whitening products.
