Discolored gums can be unsightly and may detract from the natural beauty of your smile. While gum discolorations are not necessarily an oral health issue, they can affect your self-confidence. Dr. Farnoosh has invented a technique that can restore a pink, healthy look to your gums without any downtime or major discomfort.
Gums can be naturally dark in color, or they can become discolored over time as a result of certain types of medications, metal restorations or lifestyle habits. Dr. Farnoosh’s special discolored gums treatment can be used to eliminate widespread discoloration or simply erase small spots and streaks. It is versatile enough to be used on a wide range of gum discoloration to restore a beautiful smile quickly and effectively.
After a comprehensive oral evaluation, we can determine if our discolored gums treatment is right for you. Deep discoloration can be addressed using this technique but may need additional treatments or adjustments to ensure the best possible results.
If you are a candidate, the discoloration can be easily treated and eliminated with a technique similar to mild dermabrasion. The entire procedure takes just 45 minutes with no major discomfort. Perhaps best of all, the results are PERMANENT. After our discolored gums treatment, your gums will remain the attractive pink color you want. In some cases, additional procedures may be recommended to achieve an optimal, well-proportioned look for your gums.
Following treatment, you can ensure your gums stay looking their best by practicing good dental hygiene, avoiding smoking and getting routine dental care on your recommended schedule. The stains we bleached away will not return, but you may be vulnerable to new stains if you smoke or take certain medications. Touch-up treatments can be used to erase these stains.
