Sensitivity Pain From Teeth Whitening

Many people long for a bright white smile and treatments are available in pharmacies and supermarkets, but for the most effective and safest teeth whitening, we recommend that you visit your dentist.

Teeth whitening can cause tooth sensitivity due to the strong chemicals used and these can even lead to enamel loss if not managed correctly. Brushing your teeth with BioMinF toothpaste helps to protect the enamel, block any exposed pores in the dentine and reduce the sensitivity pain as a result of teeth whitening.

There are many reasons why teeth become discoloured.

They yellow with age, but food, beverages and smoking can also cause staining over time:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Wine
  • Sports drinks
  • Spicy food
  • And much more

Professional tooth whitening
Professional whitening treatment involves applying hydrogen peroxide onto the surfaces of the teeth. This breaks down the stains on the tooth surface and makes the teeth whiter and brighter. In-office tooth whitening procedure with a dental professional is quite fast and you can lighten your teeth by a few shades in less than an hour.

Alternatively, at home, a whitening treatment provided by your dentist involves the use of custom-made whitening trays which are filled with a Peroxide whitening gel. The trays are worn for a minimum of 40 minutes a day and usually takes between 10 – 14 days to get good results.
