While you may not be very familiar with dark gums, there are many people that have them. Darker gum color, where your gums look brown or even black instead of the pink that most of us associate with healthy gums, can be common among people that have perfectly healthy gum tissue. Often dark gums are the result of genetics, with many people of certain ethnic backgrounds having darker pigmentation to their gums. There are also medications that can cause the problem, along with smoking and some other issues. If you have dark gums and find them unsightly and want to get a pinker color to your gums, then you will want to know the process used by us at the office of Dr. Alex Farnoosh for gum whitening in Los Angeles.
The Typical Approach to Treatment
There are many cosmetic dentists and periodontists that offer treatment for dark gums. However, the typical treatment you receive may not be one that you want to experience. Today, the treatment is normally done with lasers, with the darker tissue cut away with lasers to reveal the pink tissue underneath. While the process sounds relatively simple, there are drawbacks to it. Many people report discomfort after the process for several days, with their mouth and gums swollen and quite sensitive. The treatment is also not permanent, meaning you will likely have to return at some point to have it done again.
Our Process is the Answer
The process of gum whitening in Los Angeles that we provide at the office of Dr. Alex Farnoosh is far different. Dr. Farnoosh has pioneered a unique gum whitening procedure that combines a bleaching process with gum dermabrasion.
