Teeth whitening products and therapies are growing in popularity as they become more easily accessible. With your dentist’s help, you can turn back time on your smile and restore it to a vibrant, youthful looking shade.
Unfortunately, a whiter smile isn’t the only result of teeth whitening. Many over the counter products result in sensitivity – impacting as many as 3 out of 4 people. The active ingredients can remove stains, but they also impact the sensitive nerves of your teeth.
Avoiding Teeth Sensitivity
The disappointment of sensitivity causes many people to discontinue their treatments and miss out on a brighter smile. If you’re suffering from sensitivity due to a dental bleaching product, talk to your dentist. You can still have a smile to smile about, without experiencing the discomfort. Here are a few tricks and tips to keep in mind:
Not all whitening products are created equal. Work with your dentist to choose the right type of whitening gel, application system, and concentration for your particular smile needs. Professional grade products delivered by your dentist will work faster, be more effective, and cause less sensitivity than products available over the counter or in boutique spas.
