The presenting symptoms of sensitive teeth are multi-factorial, and from the perspective of restorative dentistry, make a differential diagnosis of true dentine hypersensitivity a challenge. This paper discusses the common causes of tooth sensitivity, focusing on restorative (operative) aspects and tooth whitening (bleaching). Restorative strategies for managing the condition and recommended dental materials are reviewed.
