What Causes Pigmented Gums
There could be many reasons why your gums are pigmented. The reasons range from naturally occurring to lifestyle habits to dental work. Keep reading to learn more.
Those who have been born with higher levels of melanin are more likely to have dark gums than those born with less melanin. This is nothing to be concerned about. There is nothing wrong with this. However, if you feel like you want to lighten your gums for whatever reason, we would love to help you.
Smoking can also cause pigmentation in the gums. This is something to be concerned about. However, you can prevent it from getting worse by quitting smoking. Your body would benefit in many ways from quitting. You might even notice that the pigmentation goes away without treatment if you stop smoking.
A hormonal disease is another reason why some people experience pigmented gums. It is called Addison’s disease and we strongly advise that you seek treatment for this issue right away.
Gum Bleaching Treatment
When Dr. Farnoosh used this treatment on himself in the 90s, he created a solution for many more people to benefit from. He has continued to enjoy the results of this treatment from all those years ago. This treatment has since been patented.
The process is very straightforward. You will have the solution placed on the pigmented gums, either on spots that need treatment or all over, and it will sit there. This can be slightly uncomfortable, but do not worry. We numb the area so that you will feel very little discomfort.
After the treatment is finished, you can leave the office without much of a recovery period at all. To see the results of real people we have treated, please take a look at these before and after pictures.
