While choosing a more suitable teeth whitening product from the very beginning is obviously the best choice, there are a few things you can do to minimize pain after teeth whitening after the treatment is already complete.

For example, you can minimize discomfort by avoiding certain foods after whitening. Anything overly acidic will likely exacerbate the problem, and you should also avoid foods that are either extremely hot or extremely cold. Yes, that might mean giving up ice cream for the time being! Other foods to avoid include pickled items and sweets.

You might also want to avoid very cold or very hot liquids if you want to minimize tooth pain after whitening treatment. Unfortunately, many individuals report extreme sensitivity even when they drink cool water after whitening. A simple fix is to drink from a straw, and this also has the added benefit of protecting your newly-whitened teeth from stains.

Finally, you can experience considerable relief from pain after teeth whitening if you switch to a toothpaste designed specifically for sensitive teeth.
