If you have sensitive teeth, you probably shouldn’t immediately start a teeth whitening treatment. Unfortunately, many treatments strongly affect the teeth and make the sensitivity worse. You don’t want that, do you? So, it’s important to select the right kind of treatment so you can whiten your smile but also care for your teeth. Our dentist, Dr. Bruce W. Smith, is happy to give you the tips on how to do so.
It’s best to use whitening treatments that don’t require a high amount of application time. This is because the longer you wear the whitening treatment, the higher of a chance your enamel and gums will become more sensitive. Fortunately, there are treatments made just for sensitive teeth that only require wearing the solution for 5 minutes at a time. These treatments have a less concentrated formula that can help remove tooth stains.
You can also use subtler options like receiving a professional dental cleaning and polishing treatment every six months at your dental office. These treatments can help you by removing the yellow plaque and small surface stains from your teeth without causing too much discomfort.
