WHY ARE MY TEETH SENSITIVE AFTER WHITENING?
Professional tooth whitening is a popular procedure as most of us want brighter, whiter smiles. But sometimes, teeth whitening pain can occur. Some whitening methods can cause temporary discomfort, but tooth sensitivity after whitening is a different condition to tooth sensitivity caused by exposed dentine. If you experience this pain, you should speak to your dentist.
If you have sensitive teeth and are looking for a toothpaste that effectively removes stains, or you have teeth whitening treatments and want to keep the stains away, brushing with a specialist toothpaste can help. Sensodyne Daily Care Gentle Whitening has superior whitening action*.
If you have had whitening treatment and are concerned about sensitivity pain, you should also consult your dentist.

If you already experience tooth sensitivity, you should get advice from your dentist before whitening sensitive teeth.1 If you are considering whitening for sensitive teeth, your dentist is also the best person to advise you about your options.
If you have sensitive teeth but wish to try teeth whitening products, it’s worth bearing in mind that whitening treatments are not the only option to help restore the natural whiteness of your teeth. Brushing twice daily with new Sensodyne Daily Care Gentle Whitening helps to remove stains for whiter teeth*, while also delivering long-lasting sensitivity protection.
