5 Tips for Treating Sensitivity after Teeth Whitening Treatments

May 4, 2018 by silvadds20173

Dr. Bruce Silva offers several teeth whitening options, including an in-office procedure that will give you brighter, whiter teeth. Take-home options are also available to whiten your teeth on your own time. Each treatment eliminates the stains, yellowing, and darkening that come with age.

Since sensitivity is a temporary side effect of teeth whitening, here are some tips on how to deal with sensitivity after teeth whitening.

• Follow all the dentist’s orders as instructed for the best results.
• Before a treatment, build up resistance to sensitivity by using sensitive toothpastes or mouthwash.
• Steer clear of hot and cold drinks or foods after teeth whitening treatments.
• Drink liquids through a straw.
• If sensitivity is too unbearable, consult with your dentist.

White teeth are an important part of a healthy smile and they also help your self-esteem. Call and schedule an appointment with Dr. Bruce Silva today!

    You suggested a great tip about how you should steer clear of hot and cold drinks or foods right after a teeth whitening treatment. I drink a lot of coffee, and over the years my teeth have gotten very yellow and stained from it. It’s always been an insecurity of mine, and I’ve always wanted to fix it. I will definitely keep your advice in mind about how to treat sensitivity after a teeth whitening service in case I do decide to get my teeth whitened.

    I want to get my teeth whitened before my sister’s wedding this summer. It is good to know that I should follow dentist instructions on care after the treatments. That is good for me to know because I want the treatments to last a long time.
