Gum Bleaching is necessary when the surface of your gum is rough or too much melanin make portions of your gum seem dark.
If your gums are dark and dull, no matter how white and even your teeth are, it is hard to show off a clean look. Gum Bleaching finds you your beautiful smile through creating healthy, pink gums.
At The Oaks, we use Water Laser (a special laser with removes a thin, top layer of the gum skin) or Bur treatment (similar to scaling; using an abrasive drill to remove a layer of the gum and dark coloration).
This allows the whole process to be done through simple surface anesthesia or no anesthesia at all (depending on your case). You will be able to return to your daily activities without any bleeding or swelling.
