WHY ARE MY TEETH SENSITIVE AFTER WHITENING?

Professional tooth whitening is a popular procedure as most of us want brighter, whiter smiles. Some tooth whitening methods can cause temporary pain or discomfort. This is different to tooth sensitivity caused by exposed dentine.

If you have sensitive teeth and are looking for a toothpaste that relives sensitivity and removes stains effectively, you should consider brushing with a toothpaste containing potassium nitrate. It helps to soothe the nerves inside your teeth by preventing them from sending pain signals to your brain. A toothpaste containing potassium nitrate can also be used if you have had whitening treatments and want to help keep the stains away.

Brushing twice daily with Daily Care Whitening helps to remove stains for whiter teeth, while also delivering long lasting sensitivity protection.
