Whitening is known to cause sensitivity even for those who are without sensitivity. Applying potassium nitrate before ; after whitening greatly reduces sensitivity. Ask your dentist. It is also an active ingredient in sensodyne tooth pastes. ...Read more

Can there be any teeth whitening at home kits for sensitive teeth & gums?

Tooth Whitening: There are various at home bleaching methods available, and some do cause sensitivity while others don't. Whitening strips can confine the bleach to a specific area on the tooth where they are placed, as opposed to the gel type that are placed in a "at-home" bleaching tray. If you suffer from sensitive teeth and gums, use a desensitizing toothpaste in addition to treat the cause of the sensitivity. ...Read more

What is a home remedy to make your teeth stop hurting you ?

The telephone: Any pain numbing product, whether prescription, OTC, or "home" remedy, will only mask symptoms as the cause of the pain becomes more widespread. The best remedy is pick up the telephone, call your Dentist, and make an appointment to treat (eliminate) the cause of the pain. If it's an abscess pain meds will not stop the spread of the infection through your body. CALL NOW! ...Read more

Can baking powder be used as a home remedy to whiten teeth?

Not really: Baking soda (not powder) is abrasive and will remove surface stains, but not actually whiten your teeth very much. Excess use can wear away the enamel making your teeth weaker. Consider using products specifically designed to whiten teeth. OTC gels may work for you, but nothing beats professionally dispensed and applied products. ...Read more
