What are some of the cons of tooth bleaching?

Possible sensitivity: The only major 'con' of bleaching your teeth could be a sensitivity issue. Fortunately, if sensitivity is present from bleaching your teeth, it is usually transient. The other 'con' may be $, and having to limit your intake of wine, soda, coffee, teas, etc unless you want to bleach them more often.
