What is the most physically painless way to bleach sensitive teeth?

Asked by Aster (16775points) August 27th, 2012

My teeth are sensitive and Crest Whitestrips make them ache. For veneers they shave them down so I don’t want that. Same with crowns. So if you had sensitive teeth and wanted them white what would you ask your dentist to do?

Swish with a little hydroge peroxide and water every say for a couple of weeks. Then brush with Synsodyne

Are you already brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste?

Have you asked your dentist?
I had dental molds made a few years ago and get a 30% bleaching gel from my dentist. I experience a little sensitivity but nothing unbearable. I usually do a treatment right after my cleanings, and then again, maybe 2–3 weeks later and my teeth stay a very nice white, but also natural looking, not neon.

Same response as @Coloma; I used the dental molds and the dental strength solution.

I just rub mine with a piece of damp gauze dipped in baking soda.

Use sensodyne when bleaching. Lay off bleaching for a few days, then go back to it.
