Gum discoloration is often associated with genetic factors. Those who have higher levels of melanin have not just darker skin but often darker gums as well. However, other factors may also contribute to gum discoloration. These can include certain medications, metal restorations, smoking, and systemic conditions.

The gum bleaching cost can vary based on the extent of the problem. If you are unhappy with the look of your gums, we can help. The right gum bleaching treatment can eliminate black spots, streaks, lines, and widespread discoloration. Patients with superficial discoloration need less extensive treatment than patients with melanin in the deeper layers of their skin.
If you are a candidate for gum bleaching, Dr. Farnoosh will begin by applying a topical numbing solution. Although the procedure generally involves no discomfort, some patients, including those with sensitive gums, may need additional local anesthetic. Once the area is comfortably numb, Dr. Farnoosh will apply his special bleaching solution followed by a mild dermabrasion. The entire process usually takes about 45 minutes to one hour. The gum bleaching cost may be higher for patients who need additional surgical procedures or treatments.
After your gum bleaching, Dr. Farnoosh will explain how to take care of your gums. Usually, you will simply need to brush and floss as you normally do. Smokers may need to abstain until their gums are fully healed. Dr. Farnoosh’s methods have not been associated with complications, and most patients heal rapidly. In fact, there is no downtime after the procedure, and you can even eat and drink immediately. The results are considered permanent.
