dental cleaning, polisher?
I had a cleaning today and the hygienist polished some bottom teeth that were stained. I didn't really want them polished cause I don't care about stains. The teeth that were polished I could feel hurt a little. Now one is sensitive to cold and I noticed they look a little more worn down. I couldn't tell hygienist to stop cause obviously how could I. Am I being paranoid or could some of my tooth have come down from that.

Tooth polishing is a simple procedure that dentists pair with tooth scaling during your biannual cleaning and exam. When paired with tooth scaling, tooth polishing can result in smooth, white — and bacteria free — teeth. Dentists don't generally recommend trying to polish your own teeth with OTC tooth polishing kits.Source(s): http://vapeuaemall.com/

The polish is only slightly more abrasive than toothpaste, it doesn't file your teeth down.

They removed the build up of tartar not any of your tooth. Yes it will feel sensitive for a while, it's lost it's winter coating.Source(s): I worked for a U.K. Dentist.

Your teeth were not ground-down from that.
It's a little rubber bit not a grinder.
