Is it possible to brighten the gums?

User Level:

Posted by: Andres123  (8 years ago)
I was wondering if it is possible to brighten the color of the gums, like one can do with the teeth? As a smoker for many years I have noticed (much to my dismay) that the color of my gums has darkened pretty severely; especially when in contrast with the gums parts higher up.
Are there any remedies, apart from quitting smoking? And if I stop smoking will the gums slowly revert to their natural color?

Dear Andres!

Yes it is possible - it´s called gum bleaching!

Are there any remedies apart from quitting smoking?
For me unknown ...

And if I stop smoking will the gums slowly revert to their natural color? Maybe, it depends on the cause of the discoloration!

Hello!

I also noticed that my gums are dark and I wanted to lighten them. It's good to know it is possible.

I do not have any pain in my gums and teeth. I am just concerned with the color of my gums. Thank you for this information.
