  12. 12. http://www.DrMohanty.com Another way to reduce teeth sensitivity is to pursue a gentle and gradual teeth whitening plan, instead of using trying to achieve immediate results with potent products.

  17. 17. http://www.DrMohanty.com * You can use teeth whitening kits 2-3 times a week instead of everyday.
  18. 18. http://www.DrMohanty.com 3. Use Painkillers
  19. 19. http://www.DrMohanty.com Before you start a teeth whitening treatment either at home or at your dentist’s office, it’s wise to stock up on some painkilling medications.
