Are you unhappy with the way that your gums look? Many people have darker-colored gums that are upsetting or embarrassing for them to look at each day. You may think that there is nothing that can be done about gums when they are a dark red or look black, but, in reality, there are options for treatment available to you. Just like you can undergo teeth whitening regimens, you can do the same for your gums. Whitening and bleaching treatments are possible for you so that you can return your gums to a pink look that helps your smile to shine. Understanding a little bit about gum lightening, also known as gum bleaching can help you to see why it can be a good option for you.
Does Gum Lightening Hurt at All?
When you come to us at The Total Smile for bleaching, you will experience a treatment that is as gentle as possible. A numbing agent is applied in the form of a paste so that your gums will be ready for the process. The treatment we use involves bleaching and whitening through the use of a solution and dermabrasion, as needed. Patients are often surprised by how quickly we can perform the treatment, and many only must have one treatment for ideal results. Most people report feeling no discomfort at all after the procedure so that they can return to their normal routines and eat without any difficulty.
How Long Does Bleaching Last?
Other gum lightening treatments that you may receive, including surgical options, may only last for a matter of months before darkness starts to return. The unique gum bleaching technique used by our periodontist, Dr. Alex Farnoosh, has had amazing results in the thousands of patients he has treated over the years since he invented the procedure. Many patients report that the treatment is permanent, with no return of dark gums, while others have seen fantastic results that have lasted for many years.
