How to Whiten Your Sensitive Teeth

Posted .

Are you unhappy with the color of your teeth? Are you interested in teeth whitening but worried about the treatment because you have sensitive teeth? If so, there are a few things you can do to protect your pearly whites while avoiding painful or uncomfortable side effects.

If you’re interested in whitening your teeth, you should visit your dentist. While home whitening kits are an option, they’re easy to misuse, which can damage your gums and your enamel. Furthermore, there may be some issues you’ll need to have addressed before you whiten your teeth. Since these kits aren’t made specifically for your teeth, they can actually make your sensitivity worse. If you visit our team, we’ll be able to provide you with a more comfortable, efficient experience.

If you visit our team, we can inspect your pearly whites for problems that could irritate your teeth even more during whitening. For example, if you have tooth decay or gum disease, bleaching your teeth could be painful. However, once we’ve addressed any of these types of issues, we’ll be happy to help you attain the beautiful smile you deserve. We can also offer you a fluoride treatment to help with your sensitivity.
