Teeth sensitivity doesn’t have to be the name of the game in getting whiter teeth. My teeth get very sensitive after I use whitening strips, but I love white teeth, and have no intentions of stopping the whitening, so I had to figure out how to stop teeth sensitivity.
First, I changed my whitening process so it’d be less frequent, and equally effectively. Then I bought a great sensitive toothpaste, the Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief. It works better than any of the other sensitive toothpastes I’ve tried, and doesn’t leave that baking soda after-effect feeling in your mouth.
In addition to the toothpaste change, however, is the addition of ACT fluoride rinse, which seems to add another layer of protection from the sensitivity.
I still do get teeth sensitivity after whitening, but with the addition of the ACT and sensitive toothpaste, I was able to stop the teeth sensitivity, or at least lessen it dramatically.
I do try to take good care of my teeth with regular flossing with my favorite OralB Glide floss, and brushing twice a day with an electric toothbrush to help make sure I’m cleaning my teeth well – especially those back teeth!
Hope it works for you too! (Keep in mind if you have sensitive teeth and you’re not whitening, or even if you are, you should see your dentist who will know more about your teeth than me!)
