Why Do I Have Gum Discoloration?
There are several reasons why you may have discolored gums. Some people are naturally born with it, it could be a lifestyle choice that is making your gums discolor, or it could be a health issue.
People with more melanin in their bodies are more likely to have darker gums. Although there is nothing unhealthy about having darker gums due to having a darker skin tone, it can be unattractive to some. If this is why your gums are discolored, we would be happy to help you get the look that you want.
Smokers are very likely to have gum discoloration. People who smoke have an overproduction of melanin in their gums which leads to them eventually becoming discolored. We know that quitting smoking is difficult. But it can help reduce the amount of discoloration on your gums. We can help you get the look you want if your gums do not return back to their healthy pink color after you quit smoking.
Smokers might also be interested in cosmetic dentistry which can help your teeth look great too. Discolored teeth are a common complaint from people who smoke. If you want your gums and your teeth to look healthy and beautiful, we can help you.
There are also genetic reasons why you might have discolored gums. Addison’s disease is a condition that affects the hormones in the body which can lead to having discolored gums.
Gum Bleaching Procedure
If you are someone who is nervous to go to the dentist, please know that you will be numbed for this procedure which will make the procedure smooth and comfortable.
Our gum bleaching is a technique created by Dr. Alex Farnoosh that he used on himself in the 90s. It has since been internationally recognized.
In most cases, the bleaching formula will be placed on the dark spots or the entirety of the gums, whichever, is appropriate. Most people will not need any surgical steps before the bleaching process, but some do. We can determine if you would be one of them during a free consultation.
