Permanent Gum Whitening
Feeling good about your smile can translate into feeling more confident in other aspects of your life. If your gums have streaks, spots or discolorations, you may not be getting as much out of your smile as you could be. We offer permanent gum whitening treatments that can transform your smile and your self-confidence.
People with genetic links to the Middle East and parts of Africa may be more likely to have gum discolorations or dark gums, but these common discolorations, which can resemble stains, can occur in anyone. Smoking, dental restorations and other lifestyle factors can also lead to dark gums. Dr. Farnoosh has created a treatment process that eliminates spots and discolorations to leave your gums a smooth, even, healthy pink color.
The process begins with a comprehensive oral evaluation. Dr. Farnoosh will examine your gums and teeth to ensure they are healthy and free of any disease or conditions that could be affected by cosmetic gum lightening. Your gums and teeth will be prepared for the procedure, and we may use a topical or local anesthetic to numb the tissues. A topical bleaching agent will be applied to the affected gums. Dr. Farnoosh then uses a dermabrasion procedure to finish the transformation. After receiving our permanent gum whitening treatment, you can continue to enjoy your new smile worry-free. Patients who smoke may need to cut back or quit to avoid new discolorations, or they may need occasional touch-ups.
After treatment, you can go back to your normal daily routine. Most people experience no post-lightening sensitivity, and they are able to eat, drink the same day. Thanks to this treatment process, you can experience permanent gum whitening results without the risk of any complications. Some patients may benefit from additional minor adjustments of their gumlines. Dr. Farnoosh can help you decide which treatments are best for your needs.
