7 Incredible Teeth Whitening Systems for Sensitive Teeth – That Work!


I feel like I am more aware of my teeth as I get older. It seems like it takes more work than ever to keep them looking fresh and white. Is it just me or is this a normal part of aging or do I just drink too much coffee?

Maybe it’s both, lol. Regardless, I know I feel better about myself when my teeth are bright white and happy. So, I turn to whitening treatments for help. And, since I have super sensitive teeth, it takes a little extra work for me to find products I can comfortably use that also work. Luckily, I’ve found some great products I use regularly to get the results I want.

Best Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth:

When I was younger, I used to peroxide my teeth to death with a curated collection of products from toothpaste to nighttime treatments. Sure, my teeth were pearly white –but they also hurt all the time. Eventually, that gets old.

That’s why I decided to switch over to gentler teeth whitening treatments that would whiten without sensitivity. Luckily, there are great options out there now and you don’t have to choose one or the other. Here are the ones I’ve tried and want to try. Affiliate links are used.

1. BURST Whitening Strips:

We’ve switched all of our toothbrushes over to BURST, including our kid’s toothbrushes, after seeing the results with my daughter’s teeth. She’s prone to cavities (like her mama), so I’ve been doing all the research and when we switched her over to their sonic toothbrush, her dentist noticed improvements in her teeth. After that, we slowly switched all of our toothbrushes over to BURST, signed up for the toothbrush replacement subscriptions, and then added the whitening strips, too! I guess you could say we’re just a BURST family now!

These whitening strips really work. They stick to your teeth and do not move like a lot of other strips, so you’re not going to get patchy whitening. I don’t feel any sensitivity with them at all and actually see whiter teeth after using them. You can add these to your subscription, too, so you don’t have to think about reordering. One less thing to worry about!

And, since I have Sjogren’s, I’m really particular about all of our oral health. If you want to read more about maintaining great oral health with Sjogren’s, check out this post here.

2. Moon Teeth Whitening Kit:

I’ve been using the dissolving Moon strips for a long time and really like them. They have a great, minty taste, which is unusual for most whiteners. I don’t find that they dissolve all the way, but they are easy to remove with a finger or toothbrush, compared to some strips that adhere to my teeth and I feel a little uncomfortable peeling them off.

You can add more impact with the LED light, but you can still get results with just the dissolving strips if you want to save some money (I feel you).

3. Cali-White Teeth Whitening System:

In the past, I used Cali-White for teeth whitening. Using non-abrasive solutions and light technology, you’ll see more of a difference than with just toothpaste and there likely won’t be any tooth sensitivity or gum damage.

You do need to use it consistently for awhile to see results, but you will see a difference (in my opinion). It’s not going to be as fast or as drastic as other options, but it’s the best non-toxic one I’ve tried. I actually put it in and then do my makeup and by the time I’m done, it’s time to take it out.

4. Lumineux Oral Essentials:

These peroxide-free whitening strips were made by dentists in Beverly Hills that were tired of recommending whitening products with harmful ingredients.

So, they created these, featuring natural ingredients like Dead Sea salt, coconut oil, sage oil, and lemon peel oil to gently lift stains without harsh chemicals. They’re so gentle, you can use them on crowns, porcelain caps, and veneers.

For the price and the reviews, it’s really a no-brainer. People love Lumineux. They’re enamel safe and peroxide free!

5. Go Smile Teeth Whitening Gel & Sonic Toothbrush:

Go Smile teeth whitening gel and accompanying sonic toothbrush work in tandem to brighten your smile. Using sonic, blue lightwaves and a whitening gel, this best-selling, patented system removes surface stains and freshens breath.

Some sets also come with the on-the-go teeth whitening pens, which you can use while traveling or after meals while out. Sounds like pretty intense effort to white, but you do you booboo.

6. Auraglow Deluxe Home Whitening System

Auraglow uses a deluxe, hands-free LED whitening device combined with dental-grade teeth whitening gel, you can very quickly get the whitest teeth of your life.

Their powerful 35% carbamide peroxide teeth whitening gel is equivalent to dentist dispensed whitening gels in terms of ingredient quality and efficacy. The gel uses a careful balance of peroxide and remineralizing ingredients to whiten the surface of the teeth without the harmful side effects or pain.

Plus, its kosher, cruelty-free, made in the USA, vegan-friendly, non-gmo, and made with organic ingredients. Phew, that was a mouthful. And, your mouth will be a lot brighter after using Auraglow.

7. Crest No Slip Whitestrips – Gentle:

I’m including this one because I understand that sometimes people want to use what they are familiar with.

Crest is the brand I used years ago, and while my tooth are too sensitive for them now, they really worked. This is their new no-slip gentle version with much lower doses of peroxide so that there should be little to no gum and teeth sensitivity.

If you have liked the results from Crest and want to go with what works, I would venture to guess that these are pretty great, too.

There you go! 7 incredible, gentle, teeth whitening systems that will work even on sensitive teeth. This is sort of a pick-your-poison kind of thing. What works well for one person may not work for another. So, purchasing from a reputable place that will back the purchase, such as Amazon, is a great way to try something out without feeling stuck.

Personally, I’m a fan of BURST and also MOON these days. Those are the ones I am using now and see the best results with and I have to be careful with my mouth and teeth. If you also struggle with dry mouth, due to Sjogren’s or any other medical condition, you might also like this post.

    Great list you have here. As a Clinical Research Coordinator, I am quite familiar with many types of teeth whitening products. and These products for starters are AMAZING! They’re not gritty like ALL of the other teeth whitening items that are available in the market. No sensitivity. No pain. getting those pearly whites has never been this trouble-free.
