Tooth whitening, if not abuse and misuse, has been generally accepted as a safe and effective treatment. One side effect that is more common is tooth becomes hypersensitivity. The oxidation process dehydrates the tooth and permeates into dentin and sometimes the pulp: the sensitive area of the tooth. In general the sensitivity is a short term condition and lasts only few days.
