I had my teeth whitened today! It took (almost) 60 minutes at the dentist, and I wanted to share the side effects with you, as well as my beautiful pearly result! I don’t want to sway anyone away from getting their teeth whitened, but I do want to give people a good idea of the potential pain that you can experience during and after the procedure.
To recap in short:
Yes, zingers can and do happen. A zinger, is a SHARP, shooting pain that runs down one tooth, kind of like biting on tin foil
Sensitivity also can happen, which happened to me. I am hurting significantly today, but I am sure it will be gone by tomorrow. If you dislike pain, maybe reconsider this, because I have a higher pain tolerance and patience with pain that others.
Good luck- I hope this helps you decide!!
