I want to whiten my sensitive yellowish teeth

Posted by: theactor  (8 years ago)

Hello! I was born with slightly yellowish and sensitive teeth. I want to make them whiter without making my already sensitive teeth more sensitive. I’ve heard bleaching make teeth sensitive. What teeth whitening method or product is best for me? I would love to hear some suggestions. Thank you very much.

Hey theactor,

Currently, all forms (tooth-paste, strips, tray gel, mouth-rinse, etc) of over-the-counter and professional chemical whitening treatment products contain the ingredient peroxide (bleach) in them. All of these will only lead to making your existing sensitivity worsen further.

However, if you can afford it, veneers are a great alternative. Their prices can range anywhere from $250 to $2500 per tooth and last 5 to 15 years, all depending on the type of material that is used. They are free from chemicals and the results are instant and brilliant.

Personally, I wouldn't recommend you try a peroxide-based product, but if you really want to go for it, I suggest you try the treatment slower (once every 3 days or so), minimize the time exposed to it, remineralize your enamel with a high-fluoride gel tray from your dentist and brush with a desensitizing paste. If anything, these might help you contain the effects a peroxide would have on your teeth.

Good luck!

It would also help to know whether the yellowish color is due to enamel or dentin. In your dentin is naturally yellow then bleaching the enamel won't help. It might be that your enamel is thing and the dentin is able to reflect its color. Opt for MI paste and use stannous fluoride containing toothpaste for sensitivity. Try starting with in home over the counter whitening strips and rinses to see if you see any changes.

I am sorry but you are misinformed on this one. HP reduces intrinsic stains like fluorosis and tetra stain. Have you heard of non vital bleaching?
Bleaching can definitely whiten dentine.
