Can I whiten my teeth if they are very sensitive?

You bet! Advances in teeth whitening technology have made it possible to reduce and sometimes even eliminate the sensitivity that can result from professional-quality teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening methods generally rely on powerful bleaches that can create pain and discomfort in your teeth and gums. The recent introduction of densensitizing agents, however, has made it possible to protect your sensitive areas from harm by minimizing your teeth and gum's sensitivity and reducing the risk of pain from the teeth whitening process.
