The future of gum pinkening™
Traditionally, procedures to reduce dark and blotchy gum pigmentation have been intrusive, temporary, and painful for the patient. Additionally, gum pigmentation treatments of the past involved complex and painful instrumentation to remove significant levels of melanocytes, penetrating to levels of collagen. Routinely, patients opted to live with their dark and blotchy gum tissue rather than undergo such an invasive procedure. Now, there’s Britegums®, a revolutionary procedure to remove dark and blotchy gum tissue using radiowave technology. The radio wave technology is both gentle and effective at removing the thin layer of skin where dark pigmentation is located. In this course, Dr. Robert Stanley will provide practitioners with the tools needed to introduce Britegums® into their practices and offer your patients the smile they desire and deserve.
The primary instructor of this course is Dr. Robert Stanley, founder and senior instructor at Stanley Institute. Dr. Stanley is joined by Dr. Bobbi Stanley, founder and senior instructor at Stanley Institute.
