In brief: Fluoride gels

Whitening with too strong of a solution or for too long can definitely cause sensitivity.
We use prescription strength Fluoride tooth pastes and gels prior to whitening. If sensitivity persists, we use Fluoride gel in trays.

You can try using anti inflammatory medication such as motrin.
Also topical Fluoride will help; need prescription from your dentist.
