Should I whiten my sensitive teeth?
If you have sensitive teeth, we strongly encourage you to avoid using over-the-counter whitening toothpaste, strips, and rinses. The formulation of these products might be unstable or might contain strong abrasives. Unstable whitening formulas and abrasives can exacerbate tooth sensitivity and even cause permanent damage.
Professional teeth whitening is the safest option for those with sensitive teeth because the formulas will not contribute to long-term tooth discomfort. Prescription whitening products contain stable and effective ingredients that do not require abrasives to remove stains.
