Description

Teeth sensitivity, and even downright pain, is the single most common negative side effect of teeth whitening. Most dentists are confused by whitening sensitivity and do not know any of the science behind this phenomenon. This article discusses the science behind what is actually causing whitening sensitivity and the reasons the most popular treatments are minimally effective. It discusses and describes the two types of whitening sensitivity encountered, and explanations for both, as well as the detrimental pulpal effects of using bleaching lights and lasers. The science behind current methods attempting to control sensitivity are also discussed, as well as the reasons why they are minimally effective.
