As pandemic restrictions begin to lift and you see friends and family face-to-face again, you may pay closer attention to your appearance. If you notice dark spots or discoloration in your gums, you can talk to your dentist about a cosmetic dental treatment to enhance your smile.
The cosmetic dentistry experts at Proud Smiles in Sandy Springs, GA provide gum bleaching treatment that can give you lighter, more uniform gums in one easy procedure. This summer is the perfect time for this treatment because Proud Smiles has a special offer for full-mouth gum bleaching for $2,021.
Cosmetic Dental Consultation
The first step to cosmetic dental enhancement is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. In this appointment, you can discuss your aesthetic goals with your dentist and determine which treatment option will work best for your needs.
Your dentist will consult your medical history and give you an oral examination to determine if any dental work is required before your cosmetic treatment. Patients with advanced gum disease should undergo periodontal therapy to clear the infection before their gum bleaching procedure.
Single Laser Treatment
If you and your dentist decide gum bleaching is the best cosmetic treatment for you, you will schedule an appointment for your procedure. Your dentist will begin this process by providing you with a local anesthetic for optimal patient comfort.
The dentist then uses a laser to lighten the visible surface of your gums, ensuring an even color throughout your mouth. Some patients may notice slight discomfort during the procedure, but the process is not painful and non-invasive.
You will be able to return to your normal activities directly following your appointment. You can drive home from the dentist’s office on your own, and you will notice the effects of the anesthetic wear off within a few hours.
Some patients report slight tooth sensitivity after their procedure, but this side effect is temporary. You will notice an immediate enhancement in the color of your gums which should last up to 25 years with no need for touch-up appointments.
