Are you unhappy with the color of your gum tissue? When you smile, do you notice that your gums look dark red, brown or black? The look can be off-putting to you and make you feel self-conscious about your looks. You want to find a method to take care of this problem, but you are not sure where you should turn for help. While the condition of having a dark pigment does not necessarily indicate a health problem, from an aesthetic standpoint, you want to change it. There are different options available to you regarding treatment, and you will want to explore the different options, including gum bleaching in Los Angeles offered by our office at the Total Smile.
Surgical Options are Out There
When you first start to look into doing something about your dark gums, you may find a number of periodontists and cosmetic dentists that offer surgical options for treatment. Surgery typically involves removing the darker gum tissue other by cutting it away manually or through the use of lasers. In either case, there are drawbacks you want to consider. While surgery can help remove the dark tissue, there is still a high likelihood that the dark pigmentation will return in a few months following surgery. You will find yourself continually getting the painful surgery done to remove the tissue, an expensive and irritating proposition.
Gum Whitening with Dermabrasion
At the Total Smile, we can offer you a gum bleaching in Los Angeles that will help you get rid of the dark gums you are experiencing. Our technique was pioneered by our periodontist and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Alex Farnoosh. Dr. Farnoosh developed a technique where the gums are lightened with the use of a bleaching solution. A dermabrasion technique is then used to scrub away any remaining dark spots of tissue that may be in hard to reach areas so that your gums have the pink look that you want. Our treatment offers a permanent solution so that you will not have to undergo anything else.
