PERMANENT Gum Bleaching
Dark gums can be a serious cosmetic concern that affects the way that you feel about your smile. These discolorations may range from mild or splotchy to darker and more extensive. Although they are more common in certain ethnic groups, they can affect people from all walks of life. They may also be more common in people who use certain medications, who smoke or who have metal restorations. Dr. Farnoosh who developed the technique and is a pioneer in this field offers a special gum bleaching treatment that can restore a healthy, even pink color to your gums for a more attractive smile overall.
Our gum bleaching procedure has been specially designed by Dr. Farnoosh to create a bright, beautiful smile without downtime or major discomfort. Dr. Farnoosh takes a two-step approach to gum discolorations to erase them and keep them from reappearing.
After evaluating your smile, Dr. Farnoosh can tell you if you are a candidate for this procedure, which is similar to a gentle dermabrasion procedure for maximum results. This evaluation ensures that your teeth and gums are strong and healthy and that you are a good candidate for the procedure. If you have exposed roots or extremely thin gum tissues, our dentist may recommend alternative treatments to protect the underlying structures. If you have untreated dental disease, you may need to undergo additional treatments to get your smile healthy again before you can continue with the gum bleaching treatment.
The treatment of dark gums (gum bleaching) technique developed by Dr. Farnoosh takes just 45 minutes for complete treatment on both arches, and the results are PERMANENT. Certain deep discoloration or other gum abnormalities may need additional procedures to ensure your satisfaction with your new smile. Once your procedure has been completed, we will provide you with aftercare instructions to keep your gums healthy and attractive for a lifetime. The results of this special gum lightening technique are permanent, but smokers may need occasional touch-ups to address superficial stains and keep their smile looking great.
