Whitening Treatments for Patients with Tooth Sensitivity
Many people with sensitive teeth avoid teeth whitening treatments due to the belief that they could worsen the sensitivities. However, our expert in teeth whitening in Beverly Hills offers a range of whitening treatments that are appropriate even for those with sensitive teeth.
1. OTC whiteners
OTC whiteners are easy to obtain and easy to use. Unfortunately, these are the very whitening treatments that can increase sensitivities. Whitening toothpastes tend to be extremely abrasive and can wear away enamel. Bleaching kits may also be inappropriate and can worsen sensitivity without giving you the results you want.
2. Take-home whitening
These kits are similar in design to drugstore bleaching kits. The major difference between the two products is that professional take-home whiteners can be completely personalized to your needs. Our dentist will customize a mouth tray and provide you with the right concentration of bleaching gel that gives you the results you want without any unwanted sensitivity.
3. In-office whitening
Supervised whitening treatments like in-office whitening may be one of the best choices for those with sensitive teeth. Our dentist can adjust the light and bleach intensity to ensure the most effective, most comfortable results.
Maintaining your newly whitened smile can keep your sensitive teeth looking great for years to come. Brush twice daily with a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth, and floss daily. See us for regular checkups and professional cleanings, and avoid tobacco, coffee, wine and other common stain-causing substances.
