The Smile Of Your Dreams
Pink gums probably aren’t the first thing you think of when you imagine a perfect smile but you’d be surprised how noticeable dark or blotchy gums can be in pictures and videos. Dark spots can detract from the symmetry of an otherwise straight, white smile — and symmetry is something everyone notices, even if it’s subconsciously.
Your smile is often times the first thing people see during a first impression which means every little imperfection is amplified. The tiny piece of spinach or the dark spots on your gums go from tiny things to big things. If you’re in any field where looks matter, blotchy gums can make a huge difference. If you can see dark spots on your gums when you smile, you’ve probably noticed how such a tiny mark can dramatically transform how your smile looks.
Getting That Hollywood Smile
How big of a difference exactly? Take a look at the major players in Hollywood and you’ll see for yourself. The celebrities who could have blotchy gums (celebrities with high levels of melanin in their skin) rarely do.
Even though a huge number of people have dark or blotchy gums, most celebrities don’t. At some point, they realized that the lack of uniform coloring on their gums was keeping them from having the kind of smile they needed for their career. Whether you like to admit it or not, a smile can make or break an interview, a screen test, or a dinner date. Oftentimes, a smile is the first thing people notice about a person. If you’re a star, you can’t have people noticing your gums before they notice your talent.
Alternatives to Gum Bleaching
Most of these celebrities, from Oprah to Obama, probably endured a costly, painful procedure to remove the excess melanin from their gums. There are tons of gum bleaching treatments that can painfully and temporarily “bleach” gums but, until recently, there was no pain-free, affordable way to get pink gums for life.
In 2017, that changed. Dr. Robert Stanley used his backgrounds in dentistry and engineering to create a fast, easy way for patients with uneven dark gums to get that Hollywood smile. He called the treatment Britegums®.
Britegums® is the only cosmetic gum pinkening treatment on the market that’s minimally invasive and yields long-term results. The process involves using a small brush that emits radio waves. The radio waves lift the melanin and the melanocytes (the cells that create melanin) but leave the sensitive gingival flesh intact. After a short healing period, patients have healthy, uniform, pink gums.
Don’t Let Your Smile Hold You Back
If you’re tired of seeing dark, blotchy gums when you look in the mirror, it might be time to schedule a consultation (whether virtual or in-person) to see if Britegums is right for you. Don’t let a lack of smile-confidence keep you from reaching for the stars!
