Smiles at Murphy

Will teeth whitening make my teeth sensitive?

Before your Murphy, TX dentist whitens your smile, we always make sure your teeth and gums are in shape for our products. We consider any oral health issues as well as restorations.

If all is well, your dentist talks to you about our teeth whitening options, including in-office whitening and a take-home kit.

And we always recommend trusting your whitening to a dentist! With products purchased on your own, it’s impossible to tell whether the ingredients are suitable for your smile. Harsh products can leave you with uneven results and ongoing tooth sensitivity.

With professional teeth whitening, you may experience mild tooth sensitivity, but it does not last. If you’re using a take-home kit, your dentist may suggest taking a few days off if you notice sensitivity. It’s also possible that you’re using too much product, and it is leaking onto the gums.

If you notice sensitivity, give us a call. A member of our team can assess your situation and make the best recommendation.
