Gum bleaching is not just an aesthetic procedure, it can actually help resolve gum disease in many ways that dental flossing simply can’t. Gum bleaching also tends to be less painful than other dental procedures and more cost-effective than some of the other alternatives on the market today.

Before Bleaching Was Invented:
Dentists would use lasers to burn away a layer of the gum tissue in hopes of getting rid of the pigmentation.
Dental lasers can often cause gum inflammation and also make it more likely for any other gum disease.
Bleaching is much less invasive and safer for your gums than what was previously done.
You’ll need to see a dentist before you have the procedure done. It’s important that you have enough healthy tissue around your teeth so that the bleaching can’t burn through them and damage your teeth.
It’s also important that you don’t drink alcohol or smoke at all within six months before or after bleaching, as this will lessen the effectiveness of the treatment.
What Happened When Bleach First Came Out?
In the early 1900s, researchers from Oxford University were trying to find a way to keep teeth white. After years of research, they eventually found that an acidic substance could lighten the color of teeth. They tested this substance on gums and found that it worked in the same way it had on teeth — with one big difference. It burned away gum tissue. Yikes!
This discovery raised a lot of questions among dentists: what kind of chemicals should they use? How often should they apply them? And how much tissue should they bleach?
A better solution is to remove the bacteria that cause gum pigmentation without burning away any of the tissue. Get your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis and use a toothbrush with antibacterial bristles. To make sure your mouth is as clean as possible, brush your tongue, cheeks, and gums before you brush your teeth. You can also try using a home whitening kit if you want whiter teeth in less than an hour.
Pros And Cons Of Bleaching:
Bleaching your teeth with lasers is not only effective but also a very quick process. However, there are some risks involved with the procedure. For example, if you have gum tissue that has been burned away, it could cause scaring which can lead to receding gums. On the other hand, this treatment will remove any stains on your teeth and leave them much whiter than ever before.
How They Do It Now…
What is bleaching? A tooth-whitening technique that lightens the color of your teeth by removing stains. What are the benefits of bleaching? Dentists often recommend this procedure for patients who have stained teeth, as it can drastically improve their appearance. What is the downside of bleaching? There isn’t really a downside, but it’s not a one-size-fits-all treatment. Talk with your dentist to see if bleaching would work for you and what the best options are for you.
FAQs On Bleaching:
Are there any side effects? While gum bleaches may cause some sensitivity, the effects are usually mild and can easily be managed with a painkiller. You should always talk to your dentist before bleaching your gums as they may have more information on which techniques work better for you. How long do I need to wear the trays? For a typical case of lightened gums, you will wear the tray for about an hour each day for two weeks. If you want more dramatic results, you’ll need to use them for longer periods of time and keep wearing them until your teeth lighten. What if I don’t want my teeth lighter? If you’re not looking for whitening, then there is no reason why this treatment won’t work just as well.
