RE: Teeth Whitening Sensitivity


I had some readers comment asking about the sensitivity of whitening products in general, and I have personally experienced this. Many products tell you to use it everyday for a certain amount of minutes, overnight, or half an hour, etc., my teeth became REALLY sensitive to where it hurt to drink or eat cold things, but that's because I was using it everyday thinking it would whiten faster, basically following the box's directions....

BUT the trick is, to use it once or twice a week. Period. This gradually whitens your teeth making it more natural and controls your "whitening shade of choice".

I use it once a week to maintain the whiteness, and in addition to that, I use a whitening toothpaste (they only have various brands of toothpaste that cater to those with sensitive teeth as well as providing whitening), and I always drink dark drinks from a straw to prevent soda from staining all of your teeth.

I hope that helped!

Listerine dissolving strips are awesome for sensitive teeth but I HATE the gunk left by it & I feel like it does nothing lol :(

GoSmile at sephora is wonderful! it didn't make my teeth sensitive at all (like my dentist office whitening) and it really worked!

LOL -- i drink dark drinks, including coffee!!, out of a straw, too. i am sooo self-conscious of the color of my teeth.

I'd like to exchange links with you. I have been getting my teeth whitened for some time now - I have tried various products, and am now undergoing laser teeth whitening.

I found the internet to have a lack of information on teeth whitening, so I've decided to make a blog providing good, quality information.

I'd love your assistance in helping me that I may share what I have learned with everyone - please link me to your site, and I will do the same for yours, to ensure that you get more traffic as well.


this is not spam - i'm really trying to grow my website - please check it out and see for yourself
