Why Whitened Teeth Sometimes Feel Sensitive After Whitening
Whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure that gives patients confidence in their smiles. However, tooth sensitivity is a common temporary side-effect of whitening. This is because whitening treatments use bleaching agents that remove enamel and form small pores - called microtubules - that expose the tooth's roots.

Treating Tooth Sensitivity after Whitening
While the sensitivity lasts, it is important to be gentle when brushing to prevent compounding the damage to the enamel. Acidic beverages and foods such as soda and citrus should be avoided until the sensitivity subsides. Attending routine visits to the dentist will reduce the chances of tooth sensitivity being a long-term problem.
