When you're looking for information on how to whiten sensitive teeth, it can be overwhelming! All these different methods, different chemicals…you need a guide.

The most common active whitening ingredients are hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. We'd know good ol' hydrogen peroxide's bubbles anywhere, but what's carbamide peroxide? Answer: the same thing as hydrogen peroxide, but gentler.

Your sensitive teeth appreciate that you're whitening them, but they'd also appreciate a gentle approach. Remember the way hydrogen peroxide bubbles and foams? Think of that happening on a smaller scale underneath the enamel of your teeth. HP leaves the place cleaner than when it got there, but the process is fast and brutal. This is a surefire way to irritate your sensitive nerves.

Carbamide peroxide functions exactly the same as hydrogen peroxide…but instead of an assault on tooth stains, carbamide peroxide works steadily and gently. Foam-based solutions allow the wearer to whiten their teeth more frequently, and even overnight. The way the action plateaus, allowing your teeth to gradually absorb the active ingredients to avoid causing sensitivity. It's a much better choice for those with sensitive teeth.
