Many people hide their smile because they do not like the color or texture of their gums. Even individuals who have healthy, bright and straight
teeth can find themselves not showing them because they are self-conscious of the appearance of their gums.
This procedure can quickly change the color and texture of gums through a depigmentation process. Sometimes these soft tissues are too dark or
bright, making them less appealing cosmetically. There are various causes for this condition, such as smoking, substandard crowns, genetics, certain
medications, amalgam fillings, or other physiological conditions. Dark gums do not necessarily mean they are unhealthy.
If periodontal disease is evident, we would first take measures to eliminate it. Once the gums and teeth are free of harmful bacteria and tartar,
we can perform procedures to make the gums look pink and healthy.
Our board-certified periodontal dentists will go over with you the best procedure that will bring about the best result for making dark gums lighter. We can use various proven
techniques, including using high tech lasers, depending upon the extent and cause of the discoloration. One effective gum enhancement treatment with instant results is a very efficient surgical procedure. No chemicals are involved, and there are no sutures or surgical dressings. You can go home with beautiful gums that are no longer dark.
