History of Gum Bleaching by Dr. Farnoosh

Gum Bleaching Before and AfterAlmost 25 years have passed since a simple veneers treatment performed by a colleague sparked a revolutionary idea in Dr. Farnoosh. The woman thought her veneers looked great, but the sight of her discolored gums troubled her. Dr. Farnoosh was just as bothered and could not get discolored gums off his brain. “I jumped out of bed late that night and hurried to the office with an idea,” he said. “I used to smoke pipes. I wondered if the bleaching method I envisioned would work on my own dark gums.” Dr. Farnoosh soon found out that his method not only worked but continues to yield stunning results 25 years later.

Dr. Farnoosh’ Gum Bleaching with Dermabrasion Vs. Laser Gum Whitening

In the past, Dr. Farnoosh has used Lasers to treat gingival discoloration and been less than impressed with the cosmetic outcomes. Dr. Farnoosh noted the following issues with Laser treatment:

  • Patchy, uneven coloring of the gums after removing discolored tissue
  • Difficulty reaching between the teeth to treat discolored areas
  • A high chance of gum discoloration returning
  • An absence of long term follow up with Laser treatment makes it hard to gauge its effectiveness

After noting these shortcomings, Dr. Farnoosh went on to develop a method of his own known as “gum bleaching with dermabrasion,”

To improve the appearance of gums, dental experts occasionally use bleaching agents. Though this bleach lightens gums and even erases spots, its application can be abrasive and difficult to control. Unlike bleaching agents, dental lasers allow for precise gum treatment thanks to their beams. Laser treatment is quick, non-abrasive, and results in a faster healing time than traditional bleaching techniques.
