If you have sensitive teeth that you’re interested in whitening, then you need to be careful. Some whitening treatments can make the pain and sensitivity worse. So, it’s important to select the right treatment before you dive right into whitening your smile. Our dentist, Dr. Steven Walker, is happy to help you do so by giving you some tips.

It’s best to use whitening treatments and products that have a less concentrated formula and a short application time. This is because these things can help you reduce the chances of irritating your teeth and gums during the whitening process. These treatments might not be extremely strong, but they can slowly whiten your smile throughout time. Fortunately, there are treatments that are made specifically for sensitive teeth, so look for those when considering your treatment options.

Another thing you can do is stick to the treatments offered at Steven P. Walker, DDS. Your professional dental cleaning and polishing treatments offered at your six-month checkups can remove the yellow plaque and small surface stains from the surfaces of your teeth to brighten your smile.
