Washington D.C. Dentists Now Offering Gum Depigmentation Treatments

Washington Center for Dentistry is now offering laser gum bleaching treatments to Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia cosmetic dental patients.

2012-10-20
WASHINGTON, DC, October 20, 2012 (Press-News.org) The foundation of a beautiful smile starts with the appearance of healthy gums. Now, thanks to a new laser gum treatment offered by Washington Center for Dentistry, patients will be able to lighten and improve gum discoloration. The new gum bleaching procedure is now available to general and cosmetic dental patients in Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia.

The normal color of gum tissue is pink. However, due to high concentrations of melanin, gums can appear to have dark spots or black patches. Dark gum pigmentation often occurs with people who have dark skin tones, but it can also occur due to several other factors, such as excessive sun exposure, smoking, and long-term use of medications.

"We started to receive a lot of requests for pinker gums," said Washington D.C dentist Dr. Peter Rinaldi. "We wanted to make sure we could provide the service to our patients. What's really unique is that it's a permanent fix so once you've lightened your gums you don't have to come in for routine maintenance."

The new laser gum bleaching treatment now offered by Washington Center For Dentistry, works by lightening the gums and improving the gums overall aesthetic appearance. The cosmetic dentistry procedure is a permanent and painless in-office treatment.

Washington Center for Dentistry provides cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry treatments serving patients in and around Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia. In addition to their gum depigmentation services, they offer a variety of dental procedures including teeth whitening, veneers, and dental implants. They provide state-of-the-art technology to their patients and have also been voted "Best Dentists" in Washingtonian magazine.
