Gum Bleaching (Gum Depigmentation Solutions) in London
Darkened Gums? Gums may be described as the frame to the picture of the teeth to create a beautiful looking smile portrait. It is important to have beautiful healthy-looking gums as well as teeth to get a lovely overall smile. Laser gum bleaching is a new way to brighten your teeth with long term results.
Excess melanin or long-term use of certain medications can cause patches/black spots on the gum. Although not detrimental to health, this may be considered by the patient as not aesthetically pleasing. People who have darker skin are more susceptible to melanin build up on the gums. Therefore, the benefit of gum bleaching is that it can help to keep the teeth healthy and white. Melanocytes (cells in the soft tissues that are responsible for producing melanin) are targeted by the laser. This means that their rate of producing melanin is reduced. The gum bleaching procedure is quick and painless. In most cases, the treatment can be completed in just one visit. This allows the patient the option to leave the surgery with pink, healthy-looking gums on the same day. The procedure removes gum depigmentation and helps the teeth remain healthy in the long term.
Gum discolouration can be caused by amalgam (silver) filling particles that have absorbed into the gum. Certain types of medication or smoking can cause gums to darken over time as well. By using laser gum depigmentation services, you can have a picture-perfect smile. Though this is not a substitute for cleaning your teeth, it can help to remove pigmentation.
Procedure for Gum Bleaching
We initially carry out a detailed assessment to determine the amount and type of pigmentation that is needed for the gum bleaching. We will then provide a detailed treatment plan including costs of laser gum bleaching.
We use the latest Class 4 Diode laser to carry out the gum bleaching procedure. There will also be some anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort felt. In most cases, it is finished in just one 20-minute appointment. Some patients do need to have touch up treatments, but this is dependent on the depth of pigmentation.
Healing time is quick, in a matter of days, for the vast majority of patients. This makes laser gum depigmentation an affordable way of caring for your teeth. This is because it provides minimal discomfort during and after the treatment.
How Long Does Gum Bleaching Last For?
The results of a single session of gum bleaching can last for up to a period of 20 -25 years and in some cases even a lifetime. However, each patient is different and needs to be assessed individually. We pride ourselves on giving you a laser gum bleaching cost that is affordable. Our medical staff have years of experience with laser gum bleaching and are on hand at every stage.
Regardless of the amount of discolouration that you have, we are sure that gum bleaching can work for you. We will provide you with everything that you need to enjoy your smile and limit the pain felt. Get in contact with us today to begin tackling your laser gum depigmentation problem.
