If you're trying to figure out how to deal with your sensitive teeth after whitening, “home remedy” may not be the first phrase that comes to mind. That said, you may experience some genuine relief if you try some of these easy methods:

  • Drink Through a Straw: One of the easiest solutions is to simply drink through a straw. It's a straightforward trick, but it'll protect your teeth from coming into contact with liquids. You can essentially enjoy any beverage you like with this method without having to worry about pain and discomfort.
  • Avoid Certain Foods and Drinks: Another home remedy is to avoid certain foods and drinks. Generally speaking, consumables that are either very hot or very cold will exacerbate the problem. You should also do your best to avoid foods that are very acidic.
  • Choose a Different Toothpaste: Finally, you might want to choose a different toothpaste. There are toothpastes that are specifically designed for sensitive teeth, and you can experience considerable relief simply by making the switch.
