There are many reasons for sensitive teeth (decay, loss of tooth substance, infection). You would first need to determine the cause of the sensitivity BEFORE using any whitening products as these will increase the sensitivity.
See your dentist and have x-rays taken, then let him advise you on a complrehensive treatment plan, including whitening.
