When your tooth enamel starts eroding, the tooth becomes sensitive to sweet foods such as desserts and ice cream. If you eat food items like gummy sweets, candies, carbonated drinks, citric fruits, etc. These food items produce acid in your mouth.  This acid erodes the tooth enamel by demineralizing it. Thus making teeth sensitive to stimuli.

Teeth Whitening: The process of teeth whitening uses hydrogen peroxide. The whitening agent penetrates the teeth so that it reaches the dentin. This result gives tooth sensitivity for a shorter time span.

Gum Diseases: The bacteria that feed on sugar causes plaque on teeth and gums. Moreover, it erodes the tooth enamel and acid has reached the dentin inside. This plaque in turn leads to gum infection over a period of time. As the plaque is turned to its hardened form known as tartar. This tartar causes gum infection which makes gum irritated and bleeding.
