Teeth Whitening Minus the Pain Fort Mill, SC

A white smile is a beautiful smile. Nobody wants to see coffee-stained teeth. But while teeth whitening procedures are becoming a dime a dozen these days, not everyone is opting to restore the shine of their teeth using this procedure. This is because one of the disadvantages of using teeth whitening products is tooth sensitivity.

What is tooth sensitivity?

Tooth sensitivity, or dentine hypersentivity, is the term given to the condition wherein a person feels extreme pain after biting into something cold, hot or hard. The pain is often described as sharp and sudden, and feels like it radiates from the very root of one’s tooth.

The cause of tooth sensitivity is the exposure of the layer of teeth that is found directly beneath the enamel – the dentin. The dentin layer contains thousands of microscopic tubules which all lead to the very heart of the tooth or the pulp region. When the dentin is exposed, stimuli such as hot food or cold air are allowed to travel into the pulp region containing nerve endings which trigger the pain.

While the causes of tooth sensitivity vary, teeth whitening substances are implicated. This is why people who have tooth sensitivity are contraindicated from using teeth whitening toothpastes as well as undergoing procedures which may expose their teeth to harsh chemicals that can trigger the pain and accelerate the erosion of enamel.

New teeth whitener which helps to heal teeth

Luckily, those who suffer from tooth sensitivity no longer have to keep sporting stained smiles anymore since a new teeth whitening product has been created that actually helps heal teeth instead of worsening conditions. This “white with might” formula was the product of Paffenbarger Research Center (PRC) scientists who have come up with a way to integrating whitening with tooth remineralization agents.

Whitening products often cause more harm than good to people with sensitive teeth because they open microscopic pores where food and other stimuli can enter as explained above. While our saliva contains natural minerals which allow our teeth to develop new enamel crystals to shut off these pores, this process happens over a lengthy period of time.

But with the “might is white” formula, this process of remineralization is incorporated and rate of development of new dental minerals happens much faster. Best of all, the makers of this special teeth whitening chemical are already thinking of using the formula in the creation of teeth whitening gels, pastes and strips.

"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
