Is Teeth Whitening Painful?
Teeth whitening products are usually formulated with carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. The number of ingredients differs between professional and at-home treatments.
Nonetheless, any amount might cause discomfort and long-term tooth sensitivity. Because peroxide may infiltrate tooth enamel, it could irritate the nerve. During the natural whitening process, teeth pores become exposed and open, causing dehydration when the whitening gel becomes inactive. The tooth will be sensitive until the pressure is decreased by saliva production, at which point it will be re-hydrated. Many factors can influence sensitivity, including peroxide concentration and product overuse.
At Home or Professional In-Office Whitening?
Before attempting teeth whitening, it is critical to treat any main oral health issues that may be causing tooth sensitivity, such as cavities or gum disease. Many oral health issues are easily treatable, and once they are, you can continue with whitening procedures with less chance of developing sensitivity.
If you have sensitive teeth, our dentists can recommend a professional or at-home whitening procedure that is tailored to your needs.
Those with sensitive teeth are often best served by treatments performed by their dentists. Despite being more costly than at-home treatments, professional teeth whitening enables a qualified specialist to monitor the process and protect your teeth and keep them safe during the procedure. You can also use gels and desensitizers to lessen sensitivity during teeth whitening. In-office whitening is the most efficient at removing deep stains and also lasts the longest.
If you want to brighten up your smile and give it a boost, you may use whitening procedures at home. While various drugstore alternatives are available, many of them might irritate gums and teeth that are sensitive, especially if not used as directed.
When it comes to selecting a DIY whitening treatment to use at home, bear in mind that there are several alternatives accessible, including whitening toothpaste, strips, over-the-counter trays, and rinses for whitening. Always read the label and directions carefully to check if there are any sensitivity warnings. Consumers may choose from a variety of whitening products, many of which are particularly created for individuals who have sensitive teeth.
Keep Your Smile Dazzling!
Whatever technique you use to whiten your sensitive smile, be sure to take some precise procedures to ensure the effectiveness of your efforts, such as brushing and flossing your teeth after eating and drinking, sipping with a straw, and avoiding using tobacco products.
