you have mine!! I can barely tolerate the white strips so I ended up canceling my in office appt at the last minute because I read about some of the pain people have and I was too freaked out! I did hear it will go away in a few days though….

The first time I did teeth whitening at home my gums hurt a lot.  The second  time I did it, the hygenist explained that if you overfill the tray the peroxide will burn your gums, and that you should only put a little solution in the tray.  I used less solution, and wiped off the excess solution on my gums with a q-tip after inserting the tray and teeth whitening became painless for me.  I know you had the in-office proceducre so it wasn’t at all your fault, but I wanted to post this in case anyone else makes the same mistake I did.

Never had teeth whitening before but you have my sympathy anyway! I think the mouth tends to heal quicker than other body parts (like when you bite your tongue?) so hopefully you are feeling better soon!

You definitely have my sympathy! I did an at-home whitening system, and it was supposed to last a week, twice a day, and I could only do it in 2 day timeframes because they KILLED my gums. It  felt like they were burning off, it was awful. But I found that if I let them heal or 3-4 days after a 2-day session, I could tolerate it.

I also was disappointed in the results, so I’ll probably never do it again 🙁

You have my sympathy!!! I buy the pro effects white strips and love ‘um but have to use them every OTHER day or only use the strips once/day instead of 2x/day. What has helped make the pain go away a bit is sensodyne tooth paste…

this one is really yummy! it is cheap and has helped so i am not skipping as much time inbetween whitenings.

You’re welcome! don’t get me wrong, I still have some pain/sensitivity but I don’t feel like crying/taking pain meds/not eating…so it is absolutly an improvement from before 😉

agree with @sulli! sensodyne and act mouthwash are the two things have helped me heal the sensitivity!

my teeth are really sensitive to even the at-home kits… and i need to start my regiment before e-pics in two months… i shudder thinking about that pain!!

 

good luck and feel better soon pro!!

I use that particular type of sensodyne too…It’s also good for people who have canker sores frequently as it doesn’t have Sodium Laurel Sulfate (a chemical known to cause them)
