Gum Depigmentation Solutions
Having unusually dark gums can be embarrassing. When your smile is otherwise healthy-looking, gum issues can make you not want to smile around others. We offer gum depigmentation to help you look your best. Please read on to learn more about the treatment, then give us a call to set up a free consultation.
Why Are My Gums Discolored?
There are a few reasons why you might have discolored gums. Perhaps you have had a history of inadequate oral hygiene. That could undoubtedly cause discoloration over a period of time. If you smoke or chew tobacco, it can cause discoloration of the gums. Smoking causes cells to over-produce melanin. Sometimes health conditions or medications that you’re on can cause you to have discoloration. Sometimes it is something that you are just born with.
You might wonder if you are a good candidate for gum bleaching. Generally, suppose you are unhappy with the appearance of your gums because they are too dark, and you typically have healthy teeth and gums. In that case, you will likely be considered a good candidate for our gum bleaching treatment.
How Does Gum Depigmentation Work?
The technique that Dr. Farnoosh uses is one that he created and patented. He was suffering from discolored gums himself in the 90s.
Depending on what your gums look like, you will either get the bleaching all over the gums or in the spots where it is needed.
The treatment is relatively quick, and you are given a local numbing agent. Most people do not experience any issues with discomfort, and they can get back to their normal day-to-day activities right after it is done.
Please know that if you have gum disease, depending on how severe it is, you will have to treat that before you can have any bleaching treatment done.
Benefits of Gum Depigmentation
It can be a downer to have gums that make you feel self-conscious. If you want a smile that makes you feel happy and confident, we recommend getting gum bleaching.
You are going to be able to have a complete look with this treatment. People don’t often consider the importance of having attractive gums as well as teeth, but it can make a huge difference. Your whole smile can make you look healthier when your gums have been bleached.
People may associate discolored gums with gum disease or bad hygiene. Even if that’s not the case for you, it can make you feel like everyone is staring at your gums, judging you for how they look.
You can walk away from the treatment knowing that you do not have to worry about that anymore.
