As dental specialists, periodontists are trained in advanced surgical techniques and methods to perform complex oral surgeries that a general dentist cannot. Therefore if you experience pain or discomfort in your mouth, experience periodontal disease or other complications of the gums, including gum recession, or are missing single or multiple teeth, a periodontist in Playa Del Rey can help restore your smile and oral health! 

As experts in gum health and function, a periodontist in Playa Del Rey can accurately diagnose patients’ gum conditions to create the best treatment plan for them. One of the most common cases treated by our Playa Del Rey periodontists is gum depigmentation for patients who have dark gums. Dark gum treatment in Playa Del Rey is minimally invasive and can be used to permanently lighten dark gums in Playa Del Rey. Often referred to as gum bleaching in Playa Del Rey, gum depigmentation does not utilize any form of bleaching agent. Instead, the treatment for lightening dark gums near Playa Del Rey is a fairly simple treatment that yields permanent results for a beautiful, healthy-looking smile. 

Healthy gum tissue is light pink in color, without any inflammation, redness, dark spots, or discoloration. Gums that are not light pink in color can be caused by different factors, and it is important to consult with a periodontist in Playa Del Rey to understand the reason behind what’s causing dark gums. A change in color may indicate an underlying health concern, and therefore it is important to consult with a periodontist in Playa Del Rey, to ensure there are no underlying conditions. Your oral health is reflective of your overall health, and the mouth is often looked at as a mirror to the entire body. If you experience a change in the color of your gums, it could be caused by smoking or other health problems. Conditions of the mouth have been linked to conditions of the heart, brain and some vital organs, so it is important to consult with a periodontist, who is an expert in gum health, to ensure that you achieve optimal oral health, and receive the proper treatment for any other oral conditions you may be diagnosed with. 

Gum Lightening Treatment in Playa Del Rey

Patients who are born with dark gums typically should not be alarmed. In most cases, dark gums are not a sign of threatening underlying conditions and instead result from excess melanin production that causes the gums to appear brown in color. 

In most cases, the dark gum tissue is completely healthy, and simply requires a cosmetic dental treatment in Playa Del Rey to rejuvenate the tissue and reveal a bright and dazzling smile. Gum lightening treatment near Playa Del Rey is a minimally invasive treatment that does not use any sort of lightening or whitening agent. Often this treatment to lighten dark gums is called “gum bleaching” referring to the process of whitening dark gums. However, it is imperative to note that it is completely unsafe to use bleach to lighten dark gums. At the CENTER for Advanced Periodontal and Implant Therapy, one of our dual-board certified periodontists will perform the gum depigmentation treatment near Playa Del Rey to permanently remove dark spots, lighten dark gums and transform your smile.

This gum lightening treatment in Playa Del Rey utilizes a similar technique to microdermabrasion, the procedure most commonly performed in dermatology. During treatment, a Playa Del Rey periodontist will use a tool to remove the top layer of the gum tissue. This successfully removes the dark gum tissue at the surface layer to reveal the light pink, keratinized treatment beneath it. This treatment is an effective way to permanently get rid of pigmentation on the gums.

A gum whitening / gum lightening / gum bleaching treatment near Playa Del Rey is simple, gentle, and requires zero downtime to recover. Gum depigmentation can last a lifetime and is an effective way to permanently transform your smile to get rid of dark gums forever. After the treatment, which generally takes about an hour to complete, patients can eat, speak and smile normally. Results are immediate, however, the gum tissue will need to heal before optimal results are achieved. If you experience dark gums and are self-conscious about your smile, contact a periodontist in Playa Del Rey who can help you find the right gum lightening treatment to restore your confidence and help you love your smile!
