Do you have sensitive teeth but want to whiten your teeth? Indeed all of teeth whitening products have an active agent that cause sensitivity. But, don’t worry, you still can whiten your teeth even you have sensitive teeth.
You may try Crest Whitestrips Classic which contains 6% of hydrogen peroxide. It has the lowest concentration of active bleaching ingredient. Therefore this product is very suitable for people who have sensitive teeth.
If you have significant teeth sensitivity, try using the strips every other day, or use 5-minute once-a-day Crest Whitestrips Daily Whitening Multicare or Crest Whitestrips Daily Whitening + Tartar Protection. Since the contact time is just 5 minutes, there are virtually no side-effects, such as sensitive teeth, or “burned” gums. Indeed you can’t expect to see the result in a short time, but you can definitely get whiter teeth gradually.
So, those are alternatives for teeth sensitivity. It all depends on you now. Each person has varying degrees of teeth sensitivity and you are the only one who knows your teeth condition. But whatever Crest Whitestrips you use, here are some tips for you:
- If you experience teeth sensitivity using this, stop the treatment for a day or two to allow the sensitivity to abate, and then try the treatment again. It is OK to stop the treatment for a day or two to let the gums heal. If sensitivity returns, perhaps you should try a formulation with lower hydrogen peroxide concentration (see the detail of Crest Whitestrips Products here).
- Leave the strips on for the time recommended in the instructions (30 minutes for all kinds of Crest Whitestrips except Daily Multicare 5 minutes only). Do not over bleach your teeth, as this can lead to sensitivity.
