What To Know: Discolored Gums
Some patients are unhappy with the appearance of dark colored or splotchy gums. The hyper-pigmentation fo the gums can detract from an otherwise healthy and beautiful smile. Dark brown or black spots on the gums are generally genetic and present no immediate health risk but are considered a cosmetic dental concern.
What are my Teeth Whitening Options?
Discolored teeth can age the appearance of your smile causing you to feel too self-conscious to smile. Teeth whitening is a quick, effective and safe option for whitening and brightening your smile.
1) TEETH BLEACHING
When it comes to whitening your teeth, professional teeth whitening gels provided by your dentists are the safest and most effective option. Professional whitening gels are specially designed to reduce the common side effects of teeth whitening. We use state of the art whitening gels that protect the soft tissues from damage and the teeth from added sensitivity. In about 30-60 minutes professional whitening gels can take years off of the appearance of your smile. Patients enjoy immediate results and enjoy a fresher, younger-looking smile.

Patients enjoy immediate results with minimal risk of added tooth sensitivity.
